On Edge

I’ve got so much going on in my head, and I really don’t know what to write about. I saw my doctor yesterday and I was really nervous about it. I don’t like talking about my anxiety and depression, even though I do trust her and she’s helped me a lot. She prescribed me some […]

Physically and Emotionally Exhausted

The past couple of days have been pretty hard for me. They’ve been very emotionally intense, as well as physically trying. My little girl started school on Tuesday, and I’ve been on such a rollercoaster of emotion with it. I’ve felt excitement, fear, relief, dread, inadequacy…a whole mixture of feelings. My husband took a couple […]

Until Tomorrow

I’m aware that I haven’t posted in a couple of days. It’s just been an extremely exhausting time, and it’s taken its toll on me more than I expected physically, and at about the level I expected emotionally. I will post about it, hopefully tomorrow. So until then.

A Plea For Empathy

I feel like I have to write a post about this recent scandal involving leaked nude photos of celebrities, one of whom was Jennifer Lawrence. I feel very strongly and need to vent my frustration. I’ve read a couple of articles about it, and while there is a lot of sympathy for the plight of […]

“Hello Beautiful”

Yesterday I walked into my bedroom to get ready for bed and my husband, already lying in bed, said “hello beautiful”. It made me smile like I was a little girl again. It’s not like he doesn’t tell me I’m beautiful normally because he does, so I’m not sure why this time affected me so […]
