Looking Out From The In

It's been a rough go these past few months. Swimming upstream was taking its toll. The daily struggle of getting out of bed was hard, and my life mojo was low. Having a moment in each and every day to sit and be present with myself caused me to face some of my demons head …

It’s Okay to Just Survive

This time of year can be rough. Everyone is talking about their resolutions. Commercials on TV are trying to sell you a new life:  weight loss, gym memberships, etc. This does start well before the holiday season, and can be overwhelming as shit.

Musings From a Mentally Ill Mother

So. It is one week past TeenThing's diagnosis. Into week 2 on her meds. So far nothing scary in the land of side effects. We are keeping our fingers crossed that it stays this way. I have been taking time to shuffle through the boxes I have compartmentalized, because let's face it, if I don't, …

Usually it's me.  I either get the head cold at the end of a trip, or right when I get back (Spoiler:  I got sick too, lol). It was TeenThing's turn this time.  The first day she really started feeling it was a gorgeous sunny day.  I really didn't want to stay inside all day, …

I’m Deficient

Vitamin D3 deficiency. Never thought I would hear that as a result from my blood work. I didn't have the insomnia issue, quite the opposite in fact.  I have been experiencing hair loss, but I have psoriasis on my scalp (and more recently in my ears), so I am used to some hair loss.  I …
