E Is For Emergency; F Is For Failure

I have been quite disappointed in myself, after making the commitment to do the A To Z challenge, that I was unable to keep up with it this week. It is particularly disappointing because I’ve already blogged about my tendency not to complete things and to be hard on myself when I do not succeed […]

B Is For Beach, And What I Wouldn’t Give To Return….

Before I start today’s blog, which is about my love of the beach, a quick note about yesterday’s. The Guy I Am Currently Dating shared my link with Amanda Palmer’s Twitter account, and it was retweeted!! It was really awesome to see people come to visit this page because I talked about the book and […]

People Don’t Listen, Or Medicine In America….

You may have noticed that this blog hasn’t been doing its normal thing lately or following a schedule. The past week and a half have been really, really tough on me, both from a mental and physical perspective. I wonder why it is that the best times in your life are weeks that seem like […]

Back To Before….

Sometimes, the things that you miss most in your life aren’t the big, life-changing, extraordinary things that happen to you. They’re the small things, things you didn’t even pay much attention until they happened to be taken away from you. They’re being able to look great in a dress you love, to walk three miles […]

Being MIA, And Drug Q & A…..

You may have noticed that I’ve been strangely MIA from this blog for awhile. There are a lot of reasons I could give, from trying to work out feelings and relationship issues with people in my life, to having work to do, to feeling absolutely uninspired to do anything because I am now permitted to […]

How Soon Is Now?

“I’d rather have 30 minutes of something wonderful, than a lifetime of nothing special.”-“Steel Magnolias” I am, sadly, still struggling with my health. I tried my best to have a good weekend, celebrating at my favorite Italian restaurant with some of my favourite people, and playing trivia with some of those same favourite people, plus […]

Thoughts On Mortality, Regret, And Love….

For those who don’t follow me on Facebook, it’s been a particularly tough two days for me. I’m trying to be as strong as I can, to tough things out, but honestly, I realise I’m not a strong or tough person in a lot of ways. I’ve been fortunate in that I’ve survived some dark […]

Fear And Loathing In Atlanta……

This week, I’ve been struggling with depression, and a general feeling of apathy towards life. I’ve been overwhelmed by this feeling that most of what I spend my time doing isn’t something that makes me happy, isn’t something that makes me feel fulfilled, isn’t something that helps me grow as a human being. I’ve been […]

Not Sure If I Should Be Happy, Or Not….

Definitely kind of good news! I had my follow-up with the super-duper ear specialist, and he told me that he believes I don’t have a fistula in my ear. So, that’s the good news, in that I don’t need surgery. The bad news is, there’s still no clear answers regarding what’s wrong with me. The […]

A Little Bit Of Valium, A Little More Sylvia….

It’s been a bit of a challenging week here so far, so you’ll have to forgive me for being a little forgetful about keeping everyone in blog-world updated. I had the misfortune to, a few days ago, run out of my prescription Valium about a week before the next prescription was to be filled. This […]
