I have suffered from mild to severe anxiety for as long as I can remember, and even before I knew what anxiety even was. I have a family history of anxiety. I remember several times as a teenager driving my dad, who looked like he was having a heart attack, to the Emergency Room and…Read more
Naked, Afraid, and Soon-to-be Utterly Alone
Ok, I’m not literally naked, because my dad lives with us and that is completely horrifying, but I am exposing my soul completely in the upcoming series of blog posts. As you know if you have ever met me or read any of my writing, I suffer from fairly extreme clinical anxiety. I have been…Read more
Thankful and stuff
Alright, so somehow, November has snuck up on me again. I say it every year, but time is flying by at warp speed, and it drives me a little nuts. September punched me in the throat a bit, when I remembered that this is the year I turned 39. That’s not ok. When did that…Read more
60 Days of Plexus – An Update
Alright, so last month I posted about my first month taking Plexus products to help improve my terrible health. Yesterday marked the end of my second month on the products, so I wanted to share how things have been going! Sleeping like a freaking rock at night – I don’t even hear the dog crying…Read more
The Feels! Yuck!
Over the past month or so, I have been incredibly productive. None of that earns me any money, but I feel good about getting things done. As most of you know, before this blog, I wrote for over a year on a divorce blog. I chronicled our relationship and it’s nosedive into oblivion. I have…Read more
HumpDaaaay Headaches…What stands in your way?
It’s Hump Daaaaay! I don’t know why this phrase makes me laugh, but when a camel says it you just have to go with it, I think. Happy Wednesday! I finally managed to get together my Healthy Living Guide for my Get Healthy and Save Yourself support group, and I have been really happy with…Read more
There’s no such thing as a mistake… Only choices. Very Bad Choices.
Good morning! I can say that now, because it is not yesterday. And yesterday was really good, until it wasn’t. I have a belief that there are no such things as mistakes in life. Only choices. Some choices are good, and some are terribly bad. But saying, “Oh, I made a mistake” is a cop-out. …Read more
I got so busy today I forgot to eat
These are words I have rarely ever uttered, and usually make me want to throat punch those who do. But today, it actually happened to me. Each time I realized that I had missed a meal time, I grabbed a small, healthy snack (a few walnuts and some yogurt) and moved on. The only time…Read more
But You Don’t LOOK Sick…
Oh, how many times I have heard this. “You don’t look sick.” I have heard it from friends, family, bosses, doctors, nurses, and random other assholes. But I am sick, and I have been for a long time. When I was a kid, I suffered from severe asthma. You don’t see that business unless you…Read more
Summer Suckfest 2014
I don’t know what is in the air or the water this summer, but it has been a giant suckfest. I guess I had high hopes for the summer. Actually, I don’t know that I have hope of much of anything anymore. It seems every time I look forward to something it goes it hell…Read more
