Technical Difficulties

Sorry that I’m having technical difficulties. Some of you are not receiving notifications when there is a new post. Almost all of you are not receiving notifications when someone replies to a comment you made. I’m working with the techies over at WordPress and I anticipate the problems will be fixed this weekend. Thank you for hanging in there with…

Easy Livin in the South Bay

Not too long ago I participated in a special project by Jason over at Harsh Reality. It was called Project H, for Project Home. The purpose of it was to allow bloggers around the world to share a bit about their home. I participated with a post about living in the Los Angeles South Bay.  Jason reposted it today so…

Crazies With Guns – Throwback Thursday

This weeks throwback is from April 2, 2013 “We have no national database of these lunatics… We have a completely cracked mentally ill system that has these monsters walking the streets.” — Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice President NRA Don’t want what monsters, Mr LaPierre? What do you consider a lunatic? What mental illness would require an individual to be tracked…

My Bipolar Grab Bag

I keep ahandy list where I write blog ideas as they come to me. I Iog nearly every idea no matter how silly it may sound. Some ideas are ones I like, but when I attempt to write them, I find they just don’t have enough weight for a full blog post. So, today I decided to write some of them…

Driving While Bipolar

    The Seizures Just over ten years ago I started having seizures. They started off minor, but grew more intense and one day I had a series of them one after another. I panicked so much that I didn’t show up for work. No calls to my employees and no calls to my district manager. I just stopped going…

Weekly Wrap-Up September 26, 2016

Mood Last weekend was a bit tough in the depression zone and it carried over into Monday and Tuesday. It made it difficult to get as much done. I was able to get a little bit of writing done during those days, but I was easily distracted. Fortunately, the rest of the week was much better and allowed me to…

Some of my Heroes – Throwback

This week’s Throwback is from May 2013 In February, Carrie Fisher, of Star Wars fame, acted erratically while performing on stage during a cruise, which included her belting out songs off key, and having to clean up after her dogs who pooped on stage. Carrie was not drunk as some believed. She had to see her doctor and have her…

Life Ain’t Fair, But Who Said it Was?

I haven’t had a drink or taken an illicit drug since December 8, 2003. I’m grateful for my sobriety. I don’t remember much during the time just before and just after my sobriety date, but I do remember well the night I attended my first Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. I immediately knew I was in the right place and I cried…

Things I’ve Had to Let Go

Sometimes life just doesn’t go the way it’s supposed to you want it to. For instance, I’m supposed to have Bradley Cooper’s looks, and Bill Gates’ money. It’s a bitter pill to swallow, but I’m learning to accept that neither are, or will be, true. What can be harder to swallow are the hopes and dreams that aren’t so pie…

Weekly Wrap-Up September 19, 2016

Mood Coffee! Coffee! Coffee! I can’t say it was a bad week, but like the week before, it was exhausting. Because of being so tired I nearly drowned from all the coffee I guzzled. Sure, it felt like being on crack, but I stayed awake. I got use to my hands shaking the way they did. Heavy on my mind…
