First Date

From the blog, for my mental health
I met a nice man today. We didn’t talk much, so I still know nothing about him. He has the type of energy that makes me feel really comfortable. I think that may be a bad thing for me. Typically, when I really like someone, I don’t get comfy. He’s beautiful and sexy but still, my heart & mind didn’t feel much while kissing him. He has zero body ... Read more »

worn down by it all

From the blog, Liz's Lair
I came here tonight planning to rant and rave about The Cheeto in the White House and his ongoing misogynistic behavior. I'm just too worn down by it all. People wonder why we don't disclose. I invite them to watch his mocking of Dr. Ford in Mississippi last night. He made it plain. We don't disclose for fear of what will be said about us and done to us. He claims men in ... Read more »

I need to get my body moving to the music

From the blog, I have bipolar disorder, but it doesn't have me
It is cold outside! And I don't even live in the coldest areas of the country (USA). A few days ago my hubby and I attempted to take a walk in my favorite place (a beautiful meadow walking path) and I suggested we take the shorter path. He readily agreed. I've put on some weight over the last year. I guess it's reached it's height this holiday season. I didn't do ... Read more »

I Had to Put On My Adult Pants Today

From the blog, If Only This: To Crawl Out of the Abyss
Three months ago, I had finally started my first entry level job in my new career. It was also my first "real adult job" sense going on disability. Unfortunately, my I got this job at possibly the worst timing. I had my first mania episode almost around the same time I started my job, which did not was a really terrible mix. I ended up looking completely incompetent, and then ... Read more »

I'm so Glad It's Almost the Weekend

From the blog, Ruminations
YAY, it's almost here. I have a wedding to attend this weekend, so I get to be around my family, and that always makes me happy. I consider myself so blessed in that regard. I haven't always had an easy time in my life, what with my "quirks" — ADD, OCD, and depression, but I have the most incredible support system and I try to be there for all of them ... Read more »


From the blog, The road to recovery
Welcome to my blog and my journey to finally getting the help I need. There is a back story for those who are interested, and then the journey as it unfolds   ... Read more »

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 »

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 ...

From the blog, LL's Secret Hoard

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 »
