Mesmerizing Meg tackles logic, harassment, and family trees.

Dear Mesmerizing Meg: I asked my boyfriend for his help putting ear drops into my hurt ear, and I didn’t really expect the response I got. And while I’m a capable of handling a no from someone, generally there’s a reason or an assumption to be made of why the answer is what it is.Continue reading “Mesmerizing Meg tackles logic, harassment, and family trees.”

The day the music died.

I did a search to make sure I’ve never given this title to a blog post before, but what do you know? I haven’t. So, yeah, the music died earlier. I was at the gym doing my morning workout on the treadmill when it happened. Thus, I was forced to watch the treadmill’s television forContinue reading “The day the music died.”

We have Harriette today!

DEAR HARRIETTE: From time to time, I have these nightmares about my fiance, of something happening to him or of him doing something to break my heart. These dreams are impacting my reality. Either I wake up crying, not wanting to get out of bed, or I wake up in a rage, upset with himContinue reading “We have Harriette today!”

Patronizing people and the fix-it-yourself approach to mental illness.

DEAR ABBY: I endured an arduous decade-long marriage with a subsequent nasty divorce and custody battle. This was followed by years of contentious child rearing with my ex.

Awash in validation today!

It’s been an odd day, but not a bad one. At noon, I heard a loud thump coming from outside. LuLu heard it too and started barking like a maniac. Needless to say, it interrupted my sleeping, and I curled up in my rainbow comforter and debated whether to wait it out or get upContinue reading “Awash in validation today!”

My new goals

It’s occurred to me that I’m not really an unhealthy eater (although I certainly can be), but I’m not capable of dieting enough for weight loss. So I’ve been trying to watch what I eat while exercising myself to death. After a few days of crunching numbers and seeing what’s possible, my goal is toContinue reading “My new goals”

Very strange indeed.

DEAR ABBY: I have been in a relationship with a wonderful man, “Mitch,” for two years. I couldn’t ask for a better partner. We are both divorced with children, and they get along like brothers and sisters. Even though our marriages ended, mine wasn’t an ordeal. My ex and I both knew it wasn’t workingContinue reading “Very strange indeed.”
