  • Short personal health update

    The past week or so has been rough. Twice I’ve gotten super sick while out on short trips and had to lay down in the backseat and pray I didn’t throw up till we got home. When getting out of the car I was so dizzy I almost collapsed against the car. Chronic vestibular migraines […]

  • Poetry – please let me go

  • Poetry – Is there meaning here?

    Is there meaning here? I stare into space oblivious to all but my own numbness, hoping for a call – a beckoning voice to draw me back from the edge of my self-imposed exile. Drop the feathery gauze from these old, battered lenses and push me if necessary out of the warm niche carved long […]

  • Why I’ve Been MIA (and my 39th birthday!)

    Hi everyone! I know it has been a while since you heard from me! I went from blogging everyday or every other day, to struggling to blog once or twice a week, to just not blogging at all for over a month. I think part of it might have been burnout, part of it was […]

  • Mental Illness – Personal or Societal Issue?

    Do you ever stop to wonder if the exploding rates of mental illness might signify that there isn’t a personal issue going on with many people, but instead, a societal or lifestyle issue? The pandemic has shown without a doubt that outside influences can make huge differences in collective mental health. The isolation, the fear […]

If so, what did you do? Did you force yourself to keep to your blogging schedule anyway and just […]

  • Stream of Consciousness Writing – Where Did I Go?

    Where did I go? I swear I was just right here, feeling fine, but now I look around and I’m nowhere to be seen. I guess I’ll have to break out the “lost self” posters and nail them to every tree on our block. If I’m found, I’m afraid there is no reward, but my […]

  • Stressful and Emotional Week

    This has been a stressful and emotional week. My husband and I had marriage counseling early in the week, which is helpful, but always makes me emotional and kind of depressed (depressed because we even need marriage counseling in the first place). Then my husband started a 12 step support group to work on some […]
