Some Bad Days

Trigger Warning: Brief mention of purging further into post. “Happiness is sand in your toes and a shell in your pocket.” I don’t have much happiness in my heart right now. Despite the DBT, I’m just feeling lower than I have in quite some time. I don’t have good ideas in my head and IContinue reading “Some Bad Days”

Argh, I’m Hangry!

Featured image was pulled from this article. At this point, this is where my SO would say “Hello, Hangry, I’m Dad.” Because … bad Dad jokes. Starting back on Intermittent Fasting again. And it’s always a bit of a grouch fest for me when I first start. Especially if I don’t eat RIGHT at myContinue reading “Argh, I’m Hangry!”

Zephyr Place

Zephyr Place was the street I lived on in Maplewood, Missouri. I only lived in that house for a few months, but it was an important time in my life. Previously, I’d been homeless and was living wherever I could. Sleeping on the street. Sleeping in my friends’ vehicles. Sometimes on strangers couches because theyContinue reading “Zephyr Place”

Home Sweet Home

So I briefly have mentioned my dream to have a Clayton Home. Specifically this one, the Winchester Flex 32 Wide. I daydream about decorating my home and what it will be like to live in it. We currently live with my SO’s parents and SO’s child (my Bonus daughter). It’s a combination of things. I’veContinue reading “Home Sweet Home”

Good Bye, July!

You can always tell when the end of the month is near. The police are out in droves to give tickets and meet their quota. I’m so glad that July is finally behind us, but Second Summer in Tennessee is a real kicker. It’s going to be SO MUCH HOTTER now. I had to runContinue reading “Good Bye, July!”

I’m Just a Kid

I’m 37 going on 7. At least today, that’s my plan. I am not having good brain times right now. Still. I know, it continues on for a very long time. I’m ashamed that I’m just not getting better right now. When I think about it, I realize that this is a trend for thisContinue reading “I’m Just a Kid”

Missing Him

I don’t know why it hit me today, but I miss my Dad. He passed on September 25, 2020. I haven’t been able to go down there (where he lived, my hometown) since his funeral and it just weighs heavily on me. This first year with him gone has made me acutely aware of soContinue reading “Missing Him”

Self Image

Today’s opposite action was going to get my meds and then… not being able to get my meds. Well, I got my Diabetic Test Strips, but my Psych meds weren’t available. So I had to ask my Psychiatrist for samples. I’m not sure if it’s normal, but my Psychiatrist is a very strange guy. TheContinue reading “Self Image”

Add a Smile

“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.” Thich Nhat Hanh It’s easy enough to find DBT worksheets online for free. I’ll admit my notebook from my Group Therapy Class is currently on a shelf somewhere. My room is a chaotic mess, whichContinue reading “Add a Smile”

Tarot Card Project

WARREN-PENDER VIA GETTY IMAGES My SO and I managed to make it out to Uechi Ryu Class today. Took some Opposite Action. It’s exhausting sometimes when neither partner has the motivation to pull the other along, but we somehow did it. Always good to make it out for practice. Sensei McGee says you need atContinue reading “Tarot Card Project”
