Say Hello to Lexapro!

So, did the doctor thing yesterday evening. My last tweet just prior to leaving was asking whether it was okay to show up at a doctor’s appointment drunk. So, I sat in there and talked about my fucking feelings and thoughts and all that other bullshit, and the first thing she nailed is that I […]

Upswing in the Medication

Several months ago when I went in for my long-overdue physical, my doctor gave me a scrip for Ativan, for the relief of the anxiety I anticipated having when we next went on a plane. Here we are, about 8 months later, and I have not been on a plane from then to now. And […]

Sometimes, Shit DOES Happen…And It’s Hard To Deal With

Update on the Pudding butt impasse: He did poop. Two days ago. He did not poop yesterday. So far today, nada. I can’t blame him. The poop that he did manage to push out was so hard and uncomfortable that I swear he got a taste of what it was like for me to push […]

Coughing Like A Smoker

You know you’re coughing too much and too hard, when a cough hurts your abs. That’s what happened to Punksin, who has started complaining and crying out in real pain whenever she coughs. It’s tough to see her that pained. She is a drama queen extraordinaire so I get frequent doses of melodrama daily. This […]

Why I Hate Winter

Because it’s cold, and because it brings colds. Punksin has had 2 colds already.  The first one started in the beginning of November and long after the fever and dripping nose departed, she had this annoying – to her, not me – cough that made its strongest showing, as coughs perversely do, at night.  It […]
