DoILookSick 100th Post Celebration! Time and Date

Well, this is it! Our 100th post!

happy festival fireworks

And we’re going to celebrate with a LIVE (!) event!

Now, the idea I told you about before isn’t exactly what we’re going to do because it was confusing to the hospital people and they had more important things to do than have it re-explained, so let it be known that we are not (!) doing this in affiliation with Medical City Dallas.

I’m loving this new (!) thing I see people writing everywhere. I also like the new go right MEOW! trend. Oh internet. You’re so silly.

Anyway. Here’s the goods:

The First Official Do I Look Sick Live Event!

Location: On the South side of the hospital, outside of buildings B and C, at the patient drop off and pick up area.

The red and yellow buildings, next to the parking garage

Date: Saturday July 13th

Time: 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM

We’ll meet outside the parking garage at a bench between buildings B and C. You’ll probably be able to see us, since we’ll have a ton of balloons on sticks! πŸ˜€

The plan is to meander about and hand out these balloons that say encouraging things like “Smile!” and “Believe in yourself!” And if people want to chat, we’d love to chat, but other than that we’re just handing out balloons and spreading the love. Kids and adults, but mostly adults because they don’t usually get this kind of special treatment.

Please please PLEASE let me know if you want to join us so that I can get you my cell number if you need help getting there or anything like that! You can leave a comment here, contact me via facebook (linked in the footer at the bottom of this page), or email me at diehardguardgirl@yahoo.com

NOTICE: If you want to park at the hospital, it does cost money! And it’s based on the time you leave your car there. There’s also parking meters on the street nearby, and there are some restaurants and such where I’m sure you could park, but you will have a bit of a trek! And if money is a big issue (and I know it is sometimes,) I will personally pay for your parking.

I’ll be there with my hubby and one of my bestest friends, but it would mean a lot to me (and all the people who have to go to the doctor on Saturday, poor dears) if more people showed up to help. You by no means have to stay the whole time, and even just stopping by to say hi and wish us well would make my heart very happy.

I wanted to do something really special for this 100th post, and hopefully soon you’ll be seeing a post about what a great success it was! If you’re in Dallas, please consider sparing a small bit of your time for this very worthy cause.

Hope to see you all then!

My name is Rachel Meeks. I have endometriosis, an incurable pain condition, IBS, a digestive illness, and PCOS, which causes irregular periods and infertility. After keeping my illnesses a secret, I started to get upset about how my fellow sick people were being mistreated because of ignorance. I knew that I'd need to stand up, make some noise, wear my heart on my sleeve, and admit that I am not well to make a difference.

  1. How fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wish we could join ya— but we will in Spirit!!! You go girl!!!!!!!!! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much, it went very well!

      I’m so sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner – I LOVED the package! I’ve never been to Branson but it was like taking a mini vacation there! And my favorite part was the push pins for my board! πŸ˜€ I’m so excited to use them and I was so touched you remembered I had one just from that one photo I posted! Thank you so, so much. I haven’t been online lately because I was laid off and I’ve been sulking. But your package was a much needed bright spot in this dark time. πŸ™‚

      • Glad you enjoyed— the care pkg. my grandson made the push points– a few years ago- I use to sell them in one of my shops!!! πŸ™‚ I’m sorry you were laid off— but I’m sure God has something special in mind for you!!!! Even better then before!!! I love sharing Branson, Mo. with others– we love living here!!!

    Thank you for being there today . . . I hope you understand the impact you had on a stranger that had given up after a doctor’s appointment yesterday – My balloon said – “You are braver than you believe” … Thank you for the reminder to keep going!

    • Meeting you was truly the highlight of the whole event. I would love to stay connected, especially since we’re in the same city and all! I hope you’ll consider following this blog and getting emails when I update, or following me on facebook or twitter if you prefer. I’d also love to know more about what you’re going through but understand if you don’t want to talk about it.

      I have a chronic pain condition with no cure, and I’ve known hopelessness and fear. But it’s also opened me up to a lot of new things, not the least of which is making new friends.

      I hope you’re doing AWAP – as well as possible – since we met. I believe God picked that balloon just for you, so you must be very brave indeed. I hope to talk to you more and stay in touch. πŸ™‚
