Another Casualty of Depression: My Social Life

Tonight… Tonight is tough. By all rights, I should feel happy. I’m on new meds. Today was a relatively good day. But I was texting with another dear friend of mine who is also severely depressed, and we were talking about how bad depression is for friendships because you just go INTO yourself and just…disappear. […]

What Happens When People Don’t Communicate with Me Properly

I have to admit…I rarely check my email anymore. It’s just not that exciting, or necessary. Most of it is junk crap that I signed up for over the years, everything from daily affirmations to deals from Groupon to blah blah blah. Who cares? I get a lot of coupons there too, but when I […]

What Happens When You Disappear from the Internets

Wow. I just got a total shock. As you may recall, I started blogging back in 2005. Then I left. Then I came back. Sporadically. Then I left. It’s been a love/hate relationship. Sometimes I feel like writing and sometimes writing feels harder than pushing out another baby. At those times, I disappear for a […]

New Crazy Meds

Did I tell you I have new meds? The Lexapro just didn’t seem to be cutting it anymore. I’m not sure what the hell happened, but…something went awry. Maybe I missed too many doses. I don’t know. All I know is, I wasn’t feeling I-don’t-give-a-shit about stuff that I don’t want to give a shit […]

There is No Room for Bullshit in the Zen Palace

Someone recently said to me that they hadn’t been in touch with me because they didn’t want to “disturb your place of Zen that you reached.” Snort, snort. What a load of horseshit. Come on, people. COME ON. Anyone who knows me that I am about as far from Zen as one can possibly get. […]

Taking Laziness to New Heights

Well, first of all, let me say that I have my period. So that’s my excuse. And it’s actually a damn good one, because my periods, for those of you who are new here, are epic moments in history at which I lose so much blood that I approach near death. I get pale. I […]

Preparation for My Staycation: Bath Bombs and Bath Trays and Wine, Oh My

I hate that word, staycation, but I have to admit it’s sort of appropriate for what’s going to be going on around here when THE KIDS GO TO CAMP. So I’ve been doing some prep work. First, I bought some bath bombs. You should note that in the past several years, I have barely GLANCED […]

Camp is Coming, and Oh Yeah Something Else

Camp is coming, camp is coming! 18 days. EIGHTEEN DAYS! WHOO HOO!!!! I’m so excited…and I just can’t hide it. The sad thing is, I keep forgetting that Pudding’s birthday is coming up as well. BEFORE camp. Which means I better get my ass in gear for celebrating HIS BIRTHDAY before I go about the […]

Sigh

Really? That’s all I have for you right now. Sigh. I’m sorry. I’m usually prolific with the words but…not feeling wordy today. So why the hell am I writing, you ask? Because I wanted to convey…THAT. That I am feeling a lot, and a lot is going on in my head…and it all adds up […]

Spam-o-Rama

Spam is a pain in the ass. Not Spam in the CAN. That’s just vile stuff and yet…I must admit to occasional hankerings for it. Then I remind myself that I have no idea WHAT part of the pig that stuff comes from – or even if it’s totally pig – and I can usually […]
