A Cat Story. 31 March 2018.

I’ve been doing this thing on Facebook where I share “5 Positives” each night before bed; but tonight’s post would be: I’m positive that today sucked. I started a beautiful new life by moving out of my brother’s house, getting off of my brother’s couch, and renting my own room from a person who is Read More

Recovery: Going to the Gyno.

I was very brave today and went to the gynecologist. Most women hate the gynecologist. Some stranger puts their forearm into your vagina and pinches very sensitive skin. It’s awful, but necessary. As for me, I have had abnormal pap smears all of my adult life and one time I even needed a biopsy. I can’t afford Read More

About two months ago, I had a severe episode of depression that was so unlike any I ever had before, that it frightened me. I got completely freaked out. It made me wonder if maybe my mind had two separate parts because it seemed to me that my mind was acting independently of my rational Read More

Remembering the Narcissist and the Mania.

Today I unpacked a box from Israel and found one of my homemade, inspirational posters that was dated “20 June 2013”.
