Let’s talk about stigma in the support community, and other ramblings.

             As I stated in my last blog the other day, I have been struggling. So I reached out to a few new groups that said they offer support for people going through like situations. Let's just say it's been a bit anxiety-producing and upsetting. I have tried to offer suggestions… Continue reading Let’s talk about stigma in the support community, and other ramblings.

Let me re-introduce myself…

It's been a month since I last worked on my blog.  Things have been a bit rough with my health and life, in general. For those who know me, or get my blog in your email (thank you!), you know I suffer from at times, debilitating mental health symptoms.  The downs and the "what does… Continue reading Let me re-introduce myself…

Needing to be heard

I've been quiet. My goal back in December, when I started to blog was to do it 5-6/7 days a week. I'd like to lend my knowledge of life experiences and circumstances to those going through a similar situation through my written word.

Letting go and endurance

  Merry Yule, Happy Winter Solstice today. Just a warning that this blog post tonight has some graphic content in about domestic violence. I haven't gotten to write in a few days.

There was a disturbance in the force last night

  Last night we went to see The Last Jedi, Episode 8 in Star Wars. Yes, I'm kind of a Star Wars geek. Just ask Wicket W. Warrick, The Ewok, who was given to me for Christmas in 1982, and is still with me today, albeit, a little flattened and scruffy. I have multiple Wicket… Continue reading There was a disturbance in the force last night
