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.”

March 4, 2021 – Thrown for a loop.

Would you like to know the best way to throw me for a loop? If you don’t know, I will gladly tell you. First, give me a minimum of two things to choose between. Let’s say, for instance, you have asked me to choose between two restaurants to dine at. Be aware that the moreContinue reading “March 4, 2021 – Thrown for a loop.”

March 3 , 2021 – The Five Stages of Grief

As I sit in a place of acceptance today, I realize that I literally just went through the five stages of grief. In the last 5 days, I have experienced every stage. Denial. Been there. Anger. Done that. Bargaining. Yep. Depression. You better believe it. Acceptance. Uh-huh. You would think a special person or petContinue reading “March 3 , 2021 – The Five Stages of Grief”

March 2, 2021 – Why must life be so complicated?

Sorry, my friends, I am here to rant today because I simply don’t know what else to do. I feel like I’m about to crack. My husband is tired of me talking incessantly about the insurance snafus so I don’t want to burden him any more. Ordinarily, if I cannot make sense of things afterContinue reading “March 2, 2021 – Why must life be so complicated?”

February 27, 2021 – Insurance and Billing Blunders

I feel like an emotional basket case. Whether it’s due to the full moon or other matters, I cannot be certain. If I could help you understand what I mean by ’emotional basket case’, I would describe it as much like what Humpty-Dumpty experienced before he plummeted to the ground below and shattered into aContinue reading “February 27, 2021 – Insurance and Billing Blunders”

January 26, 2021 – Learning from our mistakes.

The fact of the matter is that we all make mistakes. Even me; especially me. We wouldn’t be human if we didn’t make them. I have an ‘eye’ for catching mistakes, whether that’s a curse or a gift, I’m not sure. And in this instance, I’m referring to spelling errors or when people add apostrophesContinue reading “January 26, 2021 – Learning from our mistakes.”

January 23, 2021 – Relationships

I realize I’m treading into some dangerous territory, but I feel compelled to talk about relationships today. There is no getting through this life without them. The moment our body leaves the comfort of our mother’s womb, we are introduced to other people and the opportunity for relationships. Our first relationship is generally with ourContinue reading “January 23, 2021 – Relationships”

January 14, 2021 – Emotional Roller Coaster

I am writing to you today with very little ‘gas in my tank’. In other words, this girl’s running on fumes. It was yet another sleepless night in my household. Between the storm raging outside and the storm raging inside, I could not manage to turn off my mind and actually rest. It’s like aContinue reading “January 14, 2021 – Emotional Roller Coaster”

January 8, 2021 – Time to heal.

After a 2-month hiatus (waiting for my insurance matters to get worked out), I was finally able to meet with my therapist. It was a good session, but it left me with as many questions as answers. I was really candid with her about wanting to ‘throw in the towel’ last week. I told herContinue reading “January 8, 2021 – Time to heal.”

December 18, 2020 – Getting Things Done

Today began as it usually does. I got out of bed, used the ‘facilities’, washed my face, brushed my teeth, combed my hair, threw on a robe, and headed downstairs. Breakfast was the first item on the agenda. After I prepared it and placed it on the kitchen table, I took a seat and beganContinue reading “December 18, 2020 – Getting Things Done”
