Late last 2020 - I had finally reconnected with one of the few friends who had not dumped me in the proverbial friendship garbage pile during the time when I was so ill, fighting for my life (I have spoken about this before but, in short, I lost just about every friend that I had … Continue reading A Brief history of the last two years
I apologize first and foremost because I am going through mental HELL right now and I am in a lot of pain. I have been crying for the better part of now nearly 36 hours and I am so beyond tired and so beyond fed up with it all that I (also very literally) cannot … Continue reading Physical Involvement
My mom had a terrible childhood; I will not say too much about that because I am currently working on an interview "series" with her to hear her whole story and get it in writing. But to make a VERY long story short, she was adopted as a baby when her biological mother became pregnant … Continue reading An Anecdote
“Oh, The Places YOU Will Go …”
This one is breaking my heart a little bit. I sat down with my leg up and started watching a random film on Netflix which takes place in Great Britain ... and I swear I have been to some of the places in some scenes of the film. That summer was one of the best … Continue reading “Oh, The Places YOU Will Go …”
So I have recently encountered a very troubling problem - the content from this site is being plagiarized by others with one of the disease I have and said "person" is using the content as if it were that person's content and that person's story. This has been extraordinarily upsetting to put it mildly.At any … Continue reading Plagiarism
Exciting things ahead!
Hello! I hope you are all having a good day and feeling as well as you can feel right now! I am just writing a short post (NOT because of psycho psychologist ... at least she will remain unnamed!!) to let you all know that I have a few really exciting things happening and coming … Continue reading Exciting things ahead!
This has been an incredibly difficult summer for me (and an incredibly difficult two years; a post I was advised NOT to write in one block by my former therapist, so I will be resuming writing it in ONE BLOCK as soon as I can!); my time has been spent largely trying to find my … Continue reading Summer goals
The Scorpion and the monk
So I have run into a lot of backstabbing behavior from people I genuinely considered friends (some for short periods of time, some for decades - most of the longer friendships have been busted by obviously jealous "girlfriends" who really have no idea who they are up against when they are up against me ... … Continue reading The Scorpion and the monk
How do you make impossible decisions?
So, for those who do not follow me on social media, my cat - the boy whose life I saved and the boy who has saved mine more times than I could ever attempt to count; the one who has been the one in the "it's just you and me, babe!" for 12 years - … Continue reading How do you make impossible decisions?
"FreedomThe very time I thought I was lost, my dungeon shook and my chains fell off.Free at last, free at last. Thank God almighty." what beautiful words. Many of you might not know that I have fought for the status of #juneteenth as a Federal holiday for about a decade now. What upset me the … Continue reading Juneteenth
a question regarding writing
I have a question for my fellow writers; to phrase it as succinctly as I can, how do you keep writing when your world is falling apart around you? I would love to hear your comments, so please leave them below, but this is a particularly challenging situation for me because, as I have said … Continue reading a question regarding writing
A Thought about the “meaning of friendship”
I know I have been talking a lot about "friendship" in the last few posts ... as well as in several posts that I wrote quite some time ago. I can appreciate that there are many people (well, maybe not, but that has nothing to do with this!) but that the many people have different … Continue reading A Thought about the “meaning of friendship”
This is something I often forget myself. It became apparent when I started sending messages to my Facebook "friends" going down by alphabetical order (I am only at "G" with a few exceptions). Sometimes you forget that some of the best friends you have ever had are actually still there for you. And ... aside … Continue reading thankful tuesday
I honestly don't know how even to start to approach this one. I know I have hinted at it in many of my recent previous posts, but I'm having a REALLY hard time. Like ... sobbing for hours a day not because my cat has cancer but because people I not only thought were my … Continue reading Fairweather friends
So I know I have missed quite a long period of my life in blog posts; with any luck, just by the way I talk, I will eventually cover all the "missed" things. One of these things was adopting a baby brother for Sparky Puck, given his very severe illness and now cancer diagnosis. This … Continue reading JuJu BEE!
