There’s a famous quote, “Be careful what you wish for,” that comes to mind after today’s events. I woke up feeling hesitant about leaving my bed and starting the day. I knew that once I got dressed and headed down the hallway, that eventually I would bump into my husband. I can usually count onContinue reading “July 18, 2021 – The sounds of silence.”

May 7, 2021 – On the outside looking in.
I don’t know what it is about me but I feel like for the better part of my life, I’ve been ‘on the outside looking in’. It’s almost as if the world is a swimming pool filled with people (splashing about and laughing) and they’re all calling out to me, “Come on in, the water’sContinue reading “May 7, 2021 – On the outside looking in.”
May 3, 2021 – Wet Blanket Syndrome
I suffer from a number of maladies, my friends, one of which is ‘wet blanket syndrome’. Do not mistake it for ‘wet bed syndrome’ because although I did suffer from that in the past, I can say with a fair amount of confidence that that is no longer the case. No, I have ‘wet blanketContinue reading “May 3, 2021 – Wet Blanket Syndrome”
April 7, 2021 – Disillusioned
I’m feeling particularly down today. Depression is definitely taking hold. I’ve been doing so well and it’s frustrating to feel the walls closing in (yet again). I had such high hopes about getting things done but what I’ve managed to achieve thus far is nothing to write home about. My attempts at working on theContinue reading “April 7, 2021 – Disillusioned”
January 2, 2021 – Honesty is the ‘best’ policy.
Today blew (and not like the wind). I honestly didn’t think anything could top yesterday, but no! I was mistaken. Waking up with dread and knots in my stomach is not a good way to start the day, but that’s how it’s been for at least the last week to week-and-a-half. And what have IContinue reading “January 2, 2021 – Honesty is the ‘best’ policy.”
January 1, 2021 – New Beginnings and New Endings
Is it just me or does it seem to you (the rest of you that take ‘happy pills’ to get through each day) that you took a placebo instead of the real thing? I could swear someone switched mine out! It sure doesn’t feel like it’s working. I don’t know, despite the new year andContinue reading “January 1, 2021 – New Beginnings and New Endings”
December 1, 2020 – Life Themes (Depression)
I have really struggled with what to write about today. I’ve been feeling really down which frustrates me to no end. Sometimes, despite the medicine and exercise and eating right, my arch nemesis ‘depression’ returns on occasion. And fortunately today, even though I’ve managed to fall into the well, I was able to grab ontoContinue reading “December 1, 2020 – Life Themes (Depression)”
November 2, 2020 – One person can make all of the difference (PART ONE).
Those of you that are reading this are probably thinking that I’m about to tell you at length about someone that really inspired me, that really motivated me, that really changed my life for the better. Sorry. As much as I would LOVE to do that, I’m afraid that’s a story to be told byContinue reading “November 2, 2020 – One person can make all of the difference (PART ONE).”
October 15, 2020 – Love is never wasted.
Have you ever written something profound to someone and never heard back? That’s what I’m wrestling with today. Saw my ‘shrink’ this afternoon and shared with her how I had recently written something really intense, soul-baring and powerful to someone I love dearly. I wanted them to recognize how much they mean to me andContinue reading “October 15, 2020 – Love is never wasted.”
