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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Failing At Self-Imposed Rehab…..:(

I feel like I failed at something really important. ( 4 days into cutting my Atenolol (beta-blocker) dosage from 25 to 12.5 mg, I started having side effects I just couldn’t handle. The past few days haven’t been a walk in the park, but today felt exactly like I did before I got myself on […]

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 […]

Unwanted Sick Day…..

Today, I spent my day trying to cheer myself up by hanging out in bed and watching “Mean Girls”, which I love and always makes me laugh, eating pizza, and drinking hot chocolate. Sadly, I spilled some of the hot chocolate on my hand. It has *definitely* not been the most glamourous holiday ever. There […]

Even Party Girls Get The Blues…..

“What’s hard is simple, What’s natural comes hard. Maybe you could show me How to let go, Lower my guard, Learn to be free; Maybe if you whistle, Whistle for me. ” —Stephen Sondheim, “Anyone Can Whistle” This is the first Christmas that I remember not feeling filled with joy, and thankful for the friends […]

At The End Of The Rope….

I’m truly feeling at the end of my rope with this “mystery illness”, and associated symptoms. It’s greatly impacted the quality of my life, caused me to become both anxious and depressed, and I don’t know what to do anymore. I feel as if there’s nowhere to turn for help, and nobody is listening, which […]

When Life Gives You Wellbutrin, Don’t Expect To Get Well……

Usually, I get in the bad habit of not posting here because there’s simply little of interest going on in my life. Lately, however, it’s been the opposite. Life has resembled a rollercoaster ride I’d love to get off of, but somehow, seems to start over again before I can run for my life. I’ve […]
