Things That Might Help

For the record, it's highly likely that you should never take my advice.  In fact, don't even consider anything I ever write AS advice.  I might talk about some things that work for me to help me battle my personal demons, but I never, EVER think these things will work for everyone.  Hell, they only...

Now For Something Useful

I feel embarrassed about my posts sometimes.  Often, actually.  I only feel good about the ones that are a reflection of my better days.  When I'm feeling optimistic or particularly clever or funny...or I perceive them to be useful. I am feeling neither optimistic nor clever nor funny today, but I AM feeling pretty determined... Continue Reading →

I Am Not A Bitter Drunk

The following should be read in the "Movie Phone" guy's voice: In a world where life begets struggle, and struggle often begets defeat, there are those few who rise to the occasion.  This is the story of just one of the many...who do not. Did "Movie Phone" guy date me?  I mean, date me as... Continue Reading →

Oops, I Forgot A Title

Oh my gawd, I can’t even.  I mean, seriously - I just can’t.  I don’t even TALK like this (write like this?), but I just CAN’T. I know.  Can’t is a bad word.  Whatever. I can’t. So I’m writing this post because I recognize in one part of my brain that what I describe below... Continue Reading →

Breaking Down at the DMV

Places... Continue Reading →

This Post Has Nothing To Do With Llamas

Yeah - I don't know what that title means, either.  I just couldn't come up with a better one...deal with it. What makes the stories we tell ourselves turn into the life we live?  What makes “the truth” true, and “reality” real? I’m just asking for a friend. Is it when someone else agrees with...

Hi A Tus

Upon the advice of my very intelligent and wise kidlet, I am taking a bit of a hiatus.  A week...a month...the whole summer, who knows?  I will be back, most likely.  Or not - but probably.  I mean, we can't ever know anything for certain, of course...  Usually when I give myself permission to NOT...

The “D” Train

Shit.  I was really hoping this was not going to happen.  Just today - friggin' TODAY - I was telling a friend that I thought maybe this time, it was really over.  Maybe I was just stuck in a bad place before, and that's why that last bout of depression lasted SO long and felt...
