Meg’s life: the musical.

Hey everyone! I thought it would be fun to have a musical journey through my life, from beginning to end. I was born in 1977. The very first song I remember listening to was “The Logical Song” by Supertramp. I remember listening it to my brother, and we expressed ourselves to the music by runningContinue reading “Meg’s life: the musical.”

The day I conquered the treadmill.

Guess who just spent an entire hour on the treadmill? Heck, yeah. I feel close to death. I kept my heartbeat in the range of 140-155 by going 2.2 mph at a 6.5┬░ incline (more or less–I kept making slight adjustments). Yeah. A whole freakin’ hour. Oh, hey, guess what? I burned 325 calories. Nice…?Continue reading “The day I conquered the treadmill.”

Oh, Annie Lane!

I really feel sorry for Annie Lane. Her advice column is sort of… horrible. This is what she’s been doing lately: she’ll have a letter that seems to deal with deep issues, but then at the last minute, the question asked is a commonsense question that anyone could answer. Here’s an example I made up:Continue reading “Oh, Annie Lane!”

Thank God!

I’m feeling quite better today, and I’ve done some massive soul-searching. I realized that there are two separate dynamics going on here. One is when I push people away because they’re being insensitive toward me. The other is when I alienate men who reject me romantically. The latter is one that I’ve struggled with forContinue reading “Thank God!”

Get over it already!

It’s really strange, but I’ve noticed lately how often my relationship issues trigger my childhood abuse issues. They’re very, very interconnected. And the problem is that when the abuse issues get triggered, I freakin’ get mad at myself. Like,┬áreally Meg, get over your trauma (and other bad things) already. And the problem is that I’mContinue reading “Get over it already!”

The problem with being put through the ringer.

I’m exhausted, and all I did today was run a few errands. (Granted, upon leaving the post office, I got lost and drove around town forever.) I’ve been having some emotional problems lately, and then today things got worse, and I’ve been rendered unproductive because I’m conked. When this happens, I tend to space outContinue reading “The problem with being put through the ringer.”

Medic, we have incoming!

Dear Annie: I found out a month ago that my wife has been sleeping with a plethora of men that she’s met on a dating app. Her profile says she’s single and that she also has a college degree, neither of which is true. She told me she is in love with another man. AfterContinue reading “Medic, we have incoming!”
