Romantically Traumatized

I have been romantically traumatized. I'll probably miss out on the next great love of my life because I won't believe him. I've written before about how my marriage wasn’t where or what I wanted it to be. I started this blog when we were separated. Now, that my husband is dead I feel like... Continue Reading →

Uterine Anomalies

On this Mother’s Day I’d like to honor the mothers by talking about Uteri, or uteruses (both are correct, btw), specifically uterine anomalies. In middle school when we first learn about sex and reproductive education in a classroom setting, we are usually shown a picture of a perfectly upside-down pear-shaped uterus, complete with two ovaries,...

Grief: The Day He Died

The day my husband died was like any other day. It was a Saturday, Labor Day weekend. He was a longshoreman (a ship-to-shore crane operator). He worked weird hours. He left for work before I woke up. We spent the morning texting each other about what we were going to do when he got off... Continue Reading →

An Interlude in the Nude

For the past several years I wanted to do a boudoir photoshoot. Nearly all the boudoir photos I found on the internet were beautiful and amazing, but in nearly all of them the women were wearing lingerie. I have nothing against lingerie; it's beautiful. However, I am not a lingerie wearing kind of woman.  I sleep... Continue Reading →

Smile

"It is possible for a man to appreciate the form and face of a woman while simultaneously understanding her existence is not only for his viewing pleasure."-Me Throughout the entirety of my life I have been told countless times to, "smile," by men. These are not men I know; they are total strangers to me.... Continue Reading →

When the person you are dating brags... Continue Reading →

Put Me in Coach!

A coach is defined as someone who instructs or trains. From my understanding, a coach should also have knowledge and expertise over another giving them an ability to train a particular skill. So... what the hell is a Life Coach? Who out there has more expertise about living (in general) over another living person? This... Continue Reading →

The Chicken or the Egg?

Ahhh... the age old question, “What came first, the chicken or the egg?” Only in my case it’s, “What came first, the depression or the extreme fatigue?” In my “early days” I could confidently say it was the depression. However, as I have gotten older and my depression episodes have gotten longer and longer I... Continue Reading →

Oooh… Butterfly…

I am easily... easily... easily....... distracted. I’ve been a daydreamer since I was a child. I had a hard time maintaining focus in school, especially when I found something boring. This is normal. I’d guess most people have difficulty maintaining 100% focus when they are bored by a subject. These days my lack of, or... Continue Reading →

What About Your Friends?

I think about writing a lot. I think about all I want to say during the day, but when I actually have time to write my mind is blank. Or, it is so full I can’t focus on just one thing? Usually, it’s just blank, like right now. I am writing (typing) without any specific... Continue Reading →
