How Instagram Changed My Life


It did! I deleted my personal Facebook a few years ago after much family drama and honestly, believing if someone wants to know what I’m going through, they should have to contact me, not lurk! As for Twitter, I love it, but a lot has changed since I started there and the sense of community faded. I used Twitter for beauty reviews, skin care tips, etc. I’m trying to get back into it, but it feels different and I can’t jump back on as easily for some reason.

Then came Instagram. I finally left the stone age and got a smart phone and an affordable plan with MetroPCS after years of Verizon sucking me dry (I hate Verizon for various reasons). I started a small private account which I’ve since abandoned as I started feeling comfortable no longer being practically anonymous when I started Dazzlings. At first, my current account was created with the idea of more beauty stuff and my hand stitched and other crafty creations. I hope to get that going again, btw!

In a few short years, I’ve made actual friendships and lovely acquaintances that I hope will become friends, too! After sharing this blog with several of you, the outpouring has touched me so deeply. I even made local friends, Sheila and Carmen. I can’t wait to hang out with them! I’m really happy to find local friends like them, and then I also text with Ashley who I can relate to so well. I’m grateful for so many of you, I could go on and on!

I don’t consider anyone a “follower.” These people are my buddies/friends/pals and we share interests, hobbies, struggles, laughter, beliefs and so much more.

I really can’t even express how much all these ladies mean to me. I am blessed and lucky and want you all to know, you are in my heart and I appreciate you greatly. G-d bless you all for being genuine, caring and kind!


Quite a few people have asked if they can send me something or give me money. I feel really weird accepting money and I can’t directly do so because of my SSI, but if you’d like to help me with some items I can use but can’t necessarily afford, I have started an Amazon WishList. It is also permanently posted to my “About Me” page.

  2. Read most of your articles. Having been previously unaware of Ehlers, I am grateful for the education, astonished at the ignorance of the medical community and grateful for the opportunity to pray with and for you. Blessings and Shalom!!
