In Mik’s Words: Too often we teens with Dysautonomia and other chronic illnesses fall into the trap of frequent doctor’s visits, hospitalizations, therapies, etc etc. In between all of those, well.. mostly, we just feel quite simply – sick! I know we at Mik’s Hidden Hearts Alliance can’t change how people physically feel (wish I could), but I know we all together can make each other feel better emotionally. Socials are a great opportunity to get out of your day-to-day medical routine and just have FUN!
Which leads me to do the wrap up of our December social – Christmas and Keeno Potluck Party. We all had an absolute blast! It was a fun evening of playing Keeno (think Bingo but with playing cards) where everyone went home with a prize and savoring all the tasty treats, appetizers and soups everyone brought for the potluck.
Seeing a bunch of smiling faces was so awesome and we were exceptionally happy that several of the hidden teens and their families in the area were feeling up to coming out. This was a perfect way to start the holiday season right!
Make sure to join us for our next monthly social in Houston – fun for all of our chronically-ill hidden teens!:
Join us Thursday, January 16th, 1 – 3:30pm, at Glazed Over Ceramics Studio for a creative, fun activity making fused glass! You’ll create a beautiful piece of glass by laying out your design of glass chips on a glass plate. It is later fused and shaped. The studio also offers ceramics that can be painted, but the glass is really fun and unique. No special glass skills needed!
Glazed Over is waiving the table fee for our MHHA group. Everyone will select and pay for their own projects. (MHHA will offset the cost of each teens’ purchase by $10. ) Items range from $18 – $60, with the average being about $25. Your item will be fused and be ready for pick up about 10 days later.
If you are able to, please bring a plate of appetizers or snacks for everyone enjoy. Glazed over sells some refrigerated drinks or bring your own.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible, so we can make sure enough tables are set up. This is really fun for everyone!
