I made it through the MIL invasion!

Treading water through a massive lake of depression wasn’t bad enough, dawn was rising and a shore line was in sight. Of course as soon as the grips of despair seem to loosen that is when anxiety took it’s hold and pulled me under. Not just the daily strain of general anxiety gnawing away in the…… Continue reading I made it through the MIL invasion!

How to get rid of any illness!

  I’m still sometimes amazed at how awkward me being sick can make other people. Usually resulting in them either slowly cutting themselves out of my life and once in a while popping up on Facebook to wish another Happy Birthday or noncommittal ‘lets get together sometime’ OR they ‘try to help.’ By this I mean…… Continue reading How to get rid of any illness!

I’m not welcome in my head…

Being stuck inside my head has never really been a welcoming idea, but hey it’s home right? Lately though it hasn’t just been a dark and dreary maze of horrors, it feels more like a plain small padded room… full of  invisible booby traps. Maybe to some people the first option sounds worse… to me…… Continue reading I’m not welcome in my head…
