Good Reasons For Anxiety Still Feel Shitty

I said I would try to give an update more often…I’m trying. January is over and was it ever a wild rollercoaster. Highs and lows…and I hate rollercoasters. However, despite frustrating health issues, despite major anxiety that felt like it was going to kill me, there’s a possibility for good stuff, really good stuff, ahead. Weight News I’m going to…

David Bowie

Changes Are Coming

  Dare I say it…it’s big…I should resist, but I must be honest. Here it goes…I was never a David Bowie fan. There, I got it off my chest. I admitted I find Bowie to have been kind of meh. interestingly one of my favorite songs is by him. In fact, it’s right up there near the top of my…

Net Neutrality Banner

Help Protect Net Neutrality

We have just days. The FCC is about to vote to end net neutrality—breaking the fundamental principle of the open Internet—and only an avalanche of calls to Congress can stop it. So this Tuesday, December 12th, “Break the Internet” on your site, Tumblr, Youtube or in whatever wild creative way you can to get your audience to contact Congress. That’s…

My Fourteenth Birthday

Today I turned fourteen. December 8, 2003 was my first day clean and sober. It may surprise some people to hear that after I got sober my life got worse. I lost all my friends (barfly’s actually.) I wound up homeless, which never happened while I was drinking. My life was in ruins as I watched others who got sober…

Self-Pity

I’m poor, overweight, have bipolar disorder, and more than anything lately, I’m loaded with self-pity. I don’t know why I’ve been feeling self-pity more lately than the past, but it doesn’t seem to be in any rush to go away. One strong possibility is the state of my country. The US of A is being led by narcissistic, bigoted, dishonest,…

Memory Loss, Writing and More

Wow. With a goal of posting twice a week, it appears I set myself up to fail. I’ve become so obsessed with finishing my novel that I have gotten so that I don’t allow myself any distractions, including blog writing. I watch very little TV, but I do watch The Walking Dead, which I saw one of the most recent…

Mismanaged Time

After over ten years of being unemployed, I have a job. It’s a nice little job. I work for a friend who is a web designer. I have a little bit of a background in web design and HTML coding, almost all of it self-taught. I also know WordPress very well, and a lot of what I do, so far,…

weekly wrap-up

This ‘n That

I promised myself that I’d post around twice a week – not doing too well on that promise. It’s been two months since my last post. My head isn’t in a space to write in my usual manner, so I’ll just list what’s going on in a half hazard way.   I’ve started working for the first time in ten…

The Good News Blog Post

I haven’t posted in awhile because I felt I had nothing to say. When I gave it some thought, I realized there’s nothing wrong with posting all the things that’s right with the world. Sometimes people need to hear it. I’m going to start with the not so good stuff so that I end on a high note. The Not…

Jumping Through Hoops

I’m going to break my rule again today and talk about meds openly. I’m doing so because saying Med1 does this and Med2 does this, would get too confusing. Primarily I’ll talk about Abilify. I’ve been taking it for years and have been happy with it. There are many reasons for taking Abilify, but I primarily give it credit for…
