In My Absence

From the blog, The Daily Dark
My last post was July 15th, on Tuesday. However, I want to talk about what happened on the 16th, the day after. I woke up that morning and was on the computer. Lanie came in and had asked me if I was okay. I told her that I was fine. I confessed that when I was feeling down the day previous, I felt utterly depressed when everyone avoided me like the plague. ... Read more »


Living Seems Hard At Times...

From the blog, Medtime
Living seems hard at times and it is. Seems like when I"m okay I"m not okay. Living life on life terms seems to slip everytime I think I have it. Thank GOD that I"m finally living on my own and I need to remember that because just a few years ago I felt life was unbearable where I was. I need to continue my recovery from bi-polar and addiction and ... Read more »


This Too Shall Pass...Won't It?

From the blog, Heather Unbalanced
I dont expect many people to read this blog. Its more of a personal journal made public as my way of telling the world, "Im not ashamed of my feelings. I have them. I acknowledge them. I let them move on." This particular blog, my first one, is being written during a time of grief. I have lost someone. Not to death; nothing so serious. But I have lost a man. ... Read more »


Rant of Randomness

From the blog, The Mosaic of ADHD
The sun is shining, it's warm and there is a cool breeze. My beautiful daughter is home practicing piano. Yet, here I am feeling like trash or "rubbish" as my daughter likes to say. Things aren't terribly wrong. In fact, they're relatively good considering  what the past year or two has been like. I won't get into the decade or two before that. Well, not right now at least. So, ... Read more »


Tracking Progress with a Spreadsheet

From the blog, Lost in the Supermarket
In one of the chats I help out with at Psych Central, a member told us about how she uses a spreadsheet to track her progress with daily self-care tasks. She would have a row for each day, and each column would be dedicated to an action she took--either positive or negative. I thought this was a great idea and have started my own. My categories are: Woke up at Hours slept Did ... Read more »


Crazy in Love

From the blog, I'm Taking Back The Life You Stole
So, yes, I'm still in love and it is wonderful. However, I still have my anxieties and insecurities. Usually they come out when I think I have upset my lover and I panic. Then I send email after email since that is our primary mode of communication. He is so understanding even with his own insecurities. We both have had bad experiences with loving people and being left behind. I have to ... Read more »


I'm a Freak Accident Away from Becoming a Supervillian

From the blog, Random Thoughts
I love watching superhero movies. It doesn’t matter if I even like the superhero, I still will see the movie. Lately I’ve taken on a fascination with the supervillain. There are two types- the pure evil villain who knows (s)he is evil and intentionally wants to be as cruel as possible and there’s the mentally unstable underdog who as a result of some freak accident has gained super powers that when combined ...

May 7th Diary Cards

From the blog, Stepping Through Thorns
Well I've taken back to posting here daily because I never manage to get around to writing it down for DBT journal/diary cards. So starting with yesterday - took a Xanax in the morning before group. Seemed like a great idea. I was apprehensive because I hadn't done my journaling, nor did i pick up my homework and I didn't want to get nagged at - all worked out alright. Avoidance -high'ish' but ... Read more »


History of Frontal Lobotomy

From the blog, Benjamin A Kozlowski
           The history of the surgical treatment of psychiatric disease has a complex history, at times controversial, at others popular, and its origins reach back into distant history.  Beginning with the discovery of the Ensisheim burial site in France, we can find evidence of a procedure known as trephination; a procedure where a circular saw of some type was apparently used to ...

Just Life

From the blog, Just Life
This page is about life in general. The pain, joy, and roadblocks to life. Most of it will be about the pain we feel because of life in general and how we can be stronger, better people.  Some or possibly much of it will be about my personal experiences and what I have done to get through some tough moments. Please comment or keep track if you find that "Just ... Read more »


Questions of love

From the blog, The Blog of Blahzey
My daughter once teased me when she gently placed her hand upon my chest saying she was trying to cool herself off on my cold, cold heart.  I know it was in jest but it makes me wonder.  Is my heart warm or cold?  I love a lot of people, men in particular.  At least i think i do.  Is that possible?  How do we really know we are feeling ...

On the Outside Looking In

From the blog, Lighting The Labyrinth
Nowadays our world is filled with so much sin, Sometimes its best to be on the outside looking in; People having no respect for those of old age, Actions not of love only those of rage; People never looking deeper than the face, Despising others only because of their race; People never letting go of a grudge, Everyone thinking they must be the judge; Everyone thinking their better than others, Turning their backs on sisters and brothers; Peace and Justice ...

Chef Jeff's Cajun Roux

From the blog, no rhythm no reason
Everyone that has had the pleasure of eating Cajun food, has eaten a roux.  It is a simple sauce making technique, that I believe every cook or would be cook should learn how to make.  It really is simple to learn, and just takes some practice to become an expert.  The good news if you master how to make this simple roux, you will be able to make 3 mother ...

LOSSES

From the blog, A Blog of Thinking Allowed
I've been remiss in writing till now...and not sure I can really write well or much at this time. You see, my beloved service dog was diagnosed with Lymphoma on November 19, 2013 and given only 3 weeks or so to live.  It's a long story of rejecting that diagnosis and trusting God for healing...a miracle...and in a way I did receive two miracles:  Caleb lived pretty well for 3 months, ...
