  • 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 […]

  • Two Sticker Collages – Cats, Books, and Loneliness

    I haven’t been making sticker collages much recently (just not in the mood), but these are two that I made not too long ago that I really liked. The first one shows my love for cats and books, and the second one is an emotional expression of loneliness. If you like my art, make sure […]

  • Covid Results, Migraines, Friends

    First off, I got my covid results back yesterday. No coronavirus detected! That was certainly a big relief! Now I don’t have to worry about staying quarantined for weeks! On the sucky side of things, I did have a full-blown migraine last night. I’m not sure if it was caused by my anxiety about the […]

  • Quarantine Depression

    I’m struggling right now mentally and emotionally. Here are some of the reasons: I found out yesterday that my psychiatrist is retiring at the end of the month, so I have to start seeing someone new, beginning with my next appointment in June. I think one of the worst things is that I won’t get […]

  • Isolation and Loss from Chronic Illness

    I’ve been feeling rather sad and isolated the last few days. I think a lot of it comes from the stress of dealing with chronic illness and chronic pain. Anyone who has chronic illness is probably familiar with spoon theory, an illustrative way to describe why you have to choose carefully how to use your […]

  • Micropoetry: 3 Elfchen Poems

    Recently I discovered Elfchen poems, which are 5-line poems that follow this pattern: Line 1 – 1 word Line 2 – 2 words Line 3 – 3 words Line 4 – 4 words Line 5 – 1 word (different than the first line word) It is also common to take the last word of someone […]

  • The Cold Commercialism of Society

    I am often disheartened by the cold commercialism of society. As I watch the rise of the giant corporations and mega conglomerates, I feel like life in general is becoming less conducive to humanity and relationships and more about flashy advertisements and raking in the money. Those few people running the world don’t just seem […]

  • I Have Autism, and I Yearn to Feel I Belong

    This may be a post that is hard for neurotypicals to relate to – I’m honestly not sure. But, as someone who has high-functioning autism (Aspergers), I find that I have always had a deep internal yearning for something that I don’t know how to get or how to keep – and that is a […]

  • Wishing for a Family

    I’ve been severely depressed the past couple days. Two nights in a row I’ve been teary and weepy and feeling very much alone. Late last night I lay curled up on the bathroom floor crying, a position I often find myself in when depression gets severe. I do have the support of a wonderful husband […]

    Nighttime Dread and “Quiet Borderlines” Thoughts

    I slept in until after 2pm this afternoon. I hate when that happens. I feel like most of the day is already gone by the time I get out of bed. I must have slept at least around 12 hours last night, even though I had a bit of an emotional fest when I actually […]
