About CatherineH

I am a NYC gal living in Southern California. I am an actress/singer/model who had a very successful career back in NYC but it was time to make a change. Little did I know that the change would come in the form of me becoming very sick and almost dying. It has been a slow and long process recovering, but I am doing it. I am now disabled but I am learning how to live with it and not let it define me.

The frigid air is seeping its glacial fingers around the edges of the sides of my bedroom window. I have […]

Catherine Week 20: Sleep Eludes Me In The Wee Small Hours Therefore I Write…

I suppose it is a good thing since I can not sleep that filming is cancelled tomorrow… or should I really say later today since it is 2:59 AM as I write this. I admit to having mixed emotions about it. I am sad naturally as I always look forward to doing my work but more importantly I am […]

I need to address this right off the top… owning up and taking personal responsibility. In my last blog, week 17, I told you about my Thanksgiving and how my dearest, darling, most wonderful  and one of my oldest friends Craig Calman, who by the way has shared MANY a Thanksgiving and many other Holidays […]

It’s 8:25 p.m. and Law & Order Criminal Intent is on the television set to just provide noise in the background for me and keep Walter company as he folds the clothing that has been piling high as Mount Everest all day as they come out of the dryer, I admit to being in a […]
