Recovery Update 01 Nov 2016.

I started seeing a therapist, a CP – Clinical Psychologist. I tried very hard to navigate the US health care/insurance industry to choose a {helper} who could assess my depression and write me PRESCRIPTIONS for medicine… but I failed. It turns out PC’s cannot write scripts in Illinois; so we just talk. It’s a start. I spent the last session talking about my brother’s cocaine use and drug addiction. I whined about how (wait, here it comes – Why me?) why can’t I live in a house with no drugs in it? Is that an unreasonable request? To have a drug-free (more…)

Today’s LOL.

WordPress says: “It’s been 25 days since you published I Forgive The Narcissist. ” And it has zero likes! I laughed when I saw that. What’s wrong with you people? I finally turned my corner. Three YEARS it took me to get to a serene place and not one reader hits “Like”!  I get it.

Exciting Things Are Happening For Me.

A week ago, I became very unhappy with my job at the appliance store and began to think about moving on. Then a man came into the store, walked right up to me in the washing machine section, and handed me his business card. He told me that he was so-and-so and “We’re looking to hire Store Managers and Assistant Managers.” “Where are you from?” I asked. [shoe manufacturer] “Oh, sure, I know that product. Great shoes.” He was taken aback that I was familiar with his product and he should have been. Really, it’s a small company that isn’t well-known (more…)

Chiropractic with Dr. Marité.

It annoys me that Chiropractic can end in an “-ic” but still be a noun, yet that is the case. I am one month behind in writing posts about the chiropractor, so I am skipping ahead to write about the visit I had today. I like Doctor Marité because she is an intuitive like me. Our vibrations run very similar and she can easily find my sore spots and subluxations without being told by me where they are. However, I am impatient and I would sometimes like to tell her, “Please go here, now!” Doctor Marité starts by taking my left (more…)

And the Secret to Recovery from Narcissistic Abuse is… Chiropractic Adjustment.

Let’s look back at how I was feeling: 13July2015. I haven’t been writing this week because I’ve been in a deep, dark funk. I don’t want to be here anymore. I want to stop existing. This is not the same as having suicidal thoughts, although I would step over a cliff if I could do it without being seen; but not anything active (versus passive). I was thinking more along the lines of seeing a giant whirlpool open up in the carpet and suck me into non-existence just like some cheesy special effect in a Dr. Who episode. The carpet absorbs me.

Shavua Tov / Happy Week.

I have a lot of good stuff to blog about! Unfortunately, I let it pile up too high, way too high, and then my perfectionist needs kicked in and I couldn’t write because there were too many posts for me to feel they could be good enough. New strategy… let’s try writing snippets until I can get back into the swing of things. Truly, I am not good with discipline… or self-discipline. (Note to self: Stop criticizing you!) However, if this blog is going to survive, I think I need to post on a schedule of at least once per week. (more…)
