  • Poetry – Unicorn Toilet Dreams

    Outwit by sleep, somewhere between dreaming and awake – I pick out a unicorn drinking from a toilet among the ribbons of candid snapshots winding around my head like cinema still frames.

  • Poetry: Narcissistic Games

    She could never let me sleep. That would put us on equal footing and allow me to be fully awake and aware. Instead, she would sneak into my room, shake me awake and cry loud, calculated tears while I practiced hiding my true feelings and tried my hardest to become a limp, gray rock held […]

  • Bad Flare Up After Car Broke Down

    Feeling like shit today. Woke up after sleeping 10-11 hours, ate breakfast, and then went to take a nap for another couple of hours. So, why am I so exhausted and feeling like I got run over by a steamroller? Well, yesterday my husband was driving home from work when a tire fell off his […]

  • Autism Sensory Issues – Me vs. the Crickets

    Some of you will probably find this post funny (honestly it is rather amusing), but if you happen to be autistic, OCD, or have a sensory processing disorder, you may relate to my very real struggles here lol. So….I am at war with the crickets. Every single night they seem to congregate outside my bedroom […]

  • Dream Analysis: Fear of Death

      Last night I had an interesting dream. In the dream, there was a big snake loose in our house and I was trying to stay as far away from it as I could because I feared getting bit. Every time I would see it somewhere, I would run to another room. Then, the dream […]

  • Poetry: Sleeping Poetic Genius

    Sleeping Poetic Genius By: Maranda Russell I wrote a poem in my sleep last night. The words, colors, and images now blur in my mind. I try to pin them down, only to have them wiggle away like a puppy desperate to escape a confining embrace. The poem was grand, of this I am sure. […]

  • Strangest Lucid Dream Ever

    I had the strangest lucid dream ever the other night. As many lucid dreams start, I was in the middle of a dream when I suddenly realized that I WAS dreaming, and at that point was able to take over and consciously guide the rest of the dream. At first I wasn’t sure what I […]

  • Poetic Art #1 – Sleep Through Our Nightmares

    “Night, and the evening comes, while we all struggle to sleep through our nightmares.” (Check out my art for sale on Ebay!)

  • Nighttime Dread and “Quiet Borderlines” Thoughts

    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 […]

  • Bipolar Mood Charting

    Bipolar Mood Charting

    I decided to start doing some bipolar mood charting. I’ve seen others talk about how it helped them to figure out patterns in their mood swings and behaviors, so figured it couldn’t hurt to give it a try. To find a bipolar mood chart, I just googled it and checked out several options that came […]
