I Think I Might Be Wreck-It Ralph or A Saint

The kids and I went to see Wreck-It Ralph. Great movie…much much better than I thought it would be. And it made me cry. I don’t want to give the whole movie away, but the premise of the story is that there’s a bad guy in a video game who’s tired of being the bad […]

It All Begins With Peace

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: If you find yourself constantly accusing SEVERAL people of the same faults, perhaps it’s time to look…INWARD. If you have been complaining about being misunderstood, not by one person, but by many, for DECADES, it’s time to look…INWARD. If your life is such that arguments and […]

Time To Say Goodbye

Sigh. I’ve decided that I am going to try to wean myself off of the Lexapro. I don’t think it’s working anymore, and…I don’t want to continue taking it just because NOT taking it for a while will cause withdrawal symptoms. I’m not sure that this is the BEST time of year for me to […]

A Weekend of Sisterhood in Chicago

I just came back from Chicago – spent the weekend there with my super fabulous sister Denise. It was a good trip and rather spur of the moment (as in, less than a month’s planning). She was going and…I decided to tag along for protective purposes. I’m glad I went. For both of us. She […]

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. […]

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. […]

Oh The World Is Such an Unhappy Place

Before you think, wow, this is going to be filled with all kinds of Sturm und Drang about my life, fear ye not. My life is actually pretty damn good. It’s OTHER people that I’m worried about. And me worrying about them is getting to…well, to me. I don’t know if it’s me, or it’s […]

It’s A Shitty Day in the Neighborhood

It’s 9:10 p.m. In a little under 3 hours this day will be over, and BOY WILL I BE GLAD. It hasn’t been a horrible day. Nothing completely awful and terrible happened. My life did not drastically change for the worse. So, I suppose I shouldn’t complain. But, fuck it, I’m going to ANYHOW. It […]

The Nuthouse Alternative

So remember I was thinking about committing myself? Well, I have always had a problem with commitment. I mean, hubby and I lived together for 4 years before I would even entertain the thought of marriage. So committing myself to an insane asylum mental health institution did not sit so well with me after I […]
