Childhood trauma

From the blog, Unreality
This is something I think about often, but can't seem to remember much of my life prior to kindergarten. The first day kindergarten is vivid. I was holding my mom's hand walking into the kindergarten. I was terrified! During play time I quickly ran behind the bushes to hide. Day after day I hid behind those bushes watching all the kids have so much fun. It was the swing that ... Read more »

It's Made All the Difference

From the blog, A Journey Out of Bipolar to Finding Joy Again
On March 28th, 2017, I was prescribed a new medication, Buspirone, to treat anxiety. This is in addition to other medications I take for Bipolar disorder. I have only been on it for 2½ weeks but I feel a significant difference already. I started at 15 mg and am now up to 45 mg ( 15 mg 3 x a day).  I haven’t had any negative side effects except on the first ... Read more »

the pink elephant

From the blog, Over the Hill?
(Day 31) Thoughts that just won't go away. Think of a pink elephant; all four legs, big ears, tail, tusks, and trunk. Now forget the pink elephant! Forget it even exists. Chances are you can't. It's just like an earworm song in that the thought won't go away. The harder you think on trying to forget it the stronger the thought begins. The challenge is to treat thoughts as just passing by ... Read more »

Abuse, Autism, and Co-Morbid Conditions

From the blog, Adventures With Mental Illness
Author’s note- I don’t mean to bash neurodiversity or to change anyone opinions about it, this is just my confused view.      I am an abuse survivor.  I have my triggers and limitations.  I also have autism and mental illness.  I accept that too.  And I wouldn't have it any other way.  Not that abuse is a good thing, but I've accepted it because everything happens for a reason ...

Showing Up

From the blog, Starry Sky: Reasons To Smile
Hello there and good evening. I am working on a  goal.  It's not exactly a resolution (I've been experimenting with it and working on it on and off since August of 2016), but it's kind of like that I do suppose.  Especially with it being early January and all.  My goal is to show up to the things I say I'm going to do, as if it were my job.  I ...

Metalocalypse: Love is Brutal CHAPTER 2

From the blog, LL's Secret Hoard
  PROLOGUE CHAPTER 1 “Pickle? You-hoos. Pickly Pickles. You snap-ped out of it okay. Nnnow. Now. Nooow.” Toki shook the drummer who was entranced in his reflection. Toki looked at Nathan with a frown.   “Well, gee, Nate, he is out of his head and I don’t know the problem with him or what we do now. You gots any ideals?”   “Shyeah, I gotsh an ideash,” said Murderface ... Read more »

Pen Pals

From the blog, Bittersweet Heartsongs
I've never had an actual "pen pal" in my lifetime, though I've written snail mail to many of my relatives and past friends. I thought it would be oodles of fun, and a welcome distraction from the every day dullness that surrounds my life if I were to get one for the first time. So, I went onto Ravelry, the go to Fiber Arts community site, to seek one out. I ... Read more »


From the blog, Life Lessons
welcome even to myself. I'm not sure how this works but lets try. Ek twyfel of enige iemand hier afrikaans is maar dit maak nie saak nie dis eintlik net hier vir myself en omdat ek lief is vir skryf en of dit nou kort goedjies is of lank. ... Read more »

I've Screwed Up Yet Again

From the blog, The Friendly Sadist
Should I really be surprised? I feel just like I did when I was seventeen. Out of control. I am VOWING to not spend all my money on drugs. I can't do that anymore. I have to get clean and shake this. I cannot slip back to where I was three years ago. It was so bad. I am not willing to be a complete fuck up again. I wish ... Read more »


From the blog, Surviving Life
Oh my, where to start? Good news, no sign of PML infection in the last MRI. Still waiting on more bloodwork results. Neurologist prescribed Ampyra to assist with gait and balance. May begin relapse prevention with Aubagio after review of next blood panel. I didn’t realize how much I distracted my over active mind with work. It was my purpose; the fuel for my ambition and determination, learning and leading. This new chapter of ... Read more »

Yet Another I-Should-Really-Be-Sleeping Moment

From the blog, Finding The Missing Pieces
So I haven't been functioning well recently. Between my family being jerks (silence your cellphones, turn off your iPhones, and silence your pagers, because the latest film installment of Brain Wars is about to begin! * Kidding aside, it sucks), my memory playing tricks on me, and me getting headaches (plus my sense of self taking a beating from my family. **), I'm not doing well. And I'm realizing something...I think ... Read more »

Abyss (16/04/13)

From the blog, The Shadow's Voice
Ugh, out of the fire and into the frying pan. Yes I used the metaphor backwards, it went from really bad to bad. >_> Still not any good though. I won't try to draw on and on with it, but it's been a sucky day overall. My laundry, thanks to that escapade last week, has piled up due to everyone else's being done, when at the start of the week ... Read more »

Watching Netflix

From the blog, Fighting The Storm
Tuesday, one of my three days off. I would only have two, but they don't have mandatory overtime yet so I've been having three. Anyway, besides the point. I'm watching Nurse Jackie on Netflix, because I recently finished watching Leverage and I wanted to put some space in before watching one of my other favorite shows again. So I'm watching Nurse Jackie, not sure how I feel about it yet, ... Read more »
