One of my biggest inner struggles with bipolar disorder is fighting the urge to blame myself for every outside conflict with others. How the hell am I suppose to know whether my angry outburst was valid or if I was overreacting because my brain is at war? It stems from the overused phrases used all… Continue reading Placing Blame and Assigning Guilt
Growing up we believed those we thought knew the secrets of the universe-- our parents, our grandparents, our brothers and sisters-- were made of perfection. Perfection has the smell of fresh linen and the taste of strawberries with memories we cherished. We held their opinions, beliefs, and advice in our hands like precious rubies. We… Continue reading Seeking Approval
Our government is officially a reality tv show.
Each morn, usually up before the crack of dawn, whether I’m working or not, I sit here with my coffee and catch up on whatever political vids have been posted. Lately, or, well, if I’m honest, for weeks, more and more, it’s beginning to run together, with the same blather and speculation, the same tweets with different words, the same chaos but with different characters, day after day.
The one thought that has spun around lately, is that I don’t support impeaching that rumpTus, the chief liar of this chaotic and destructive White House.

With all the darkness and fear in the world, it is very important never to give up hope. Remember the potato; it grows down deep in the soul, finding it’s way in the darkness to push and reach up to break the soil to find the light. Reaching up to god. Reaching up to survive.
A free book is available in order to help tip the scale to the brighter side of the world, when you feel covered in earth. Enjoy!
I'm just dropping in to say I'm back. I've been struggling with getting out of bed, with focusing, & so much more. Even as I type this, I feel like I have the fibro flu. I just thought I'd let you all know I'm still here. I apologize that I have had a hard time… Continue reading Mental & Physical Health Hiatus
Addiction has many consequences, both on the addicted person and their loved ones. Something I see very often is that family members don’t understand how they did not recognize it sooner. They regret that their loved one got to such a dark place before they could see there was even a problem.
But the reality is that people abusing drugs learn very quickly how to lie and manipulate. Because they are regularly involved in illicit activities, they become pros at distorting reality. And it’s easiest to trick those they love, considering that they know their loved ones’ soft spots.
