Time For Another Break


  My regular readers are used to this. I blog for awhile, then I stop. Blog again for awhile, then stop. Well, I may be doing it to you again. I’m headed for a stop. I have no idea how long I’ll be gone. I’ve set a realistic goal of finishing my novel within a […]

The Streets

the streets

Many of you have read my story about living on the streets, but this story, which was published several years ago, covers a lot of area that I haven’t covered before. Because of its length, I originally planned to post this over a couple of days but decided against that. It would affect the impact […]

Oh My God, Hell Yes!

bipolar medication

I asked my husband, Maurice, to think back to before I was taking meds. We both remember the trial and error period when my pdoc and I were trying to find the right combination for me. Some of the meds had some pretty wacky side effects. In fact, one of them made me attack Maurice. […]

Good Reasons For Anxiety Still Feel Shitty

Stack of books

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. […]
