Meg’s guide to sanity.

TRIGGER WARNING: PHYSICAL ABUSE WITH SEXUAL OVERTONES I’m sort of in a funk, but mostly I’m just bored. I’ve been reading my EMDR book, but unfortunately, it doesn’t have a lot of how-to stuff in it. Or if it does, it’s hidden somewhere in the middle. Mostly it just seems to be case studies andContinue reading “Meg’s guide to sanity.”

It’s been a great year!

Okay, so I figured I’d blog about what I’ve accomplished this year. At some later point, I’ll blog about my goals for 2021. I participated in the NYC Midnight competitions but didn’t make it to the finals of any of them, much to my disappointment. And then I participated in the 3-day novella writing event,Continue reading “It’s been a great year!”

Cards and cardio.

So, I sent out some Christmas cards today. Dear Grandpa Max,  Sorry I didn’t include a note with the hardcover my mom asked me to mail you. Media mail doesn’t allow for correspondence. So I thought I’d drop you a line and see how you’re doing. I hope you have a very merry Christmas! Oh, guessContinue reading “Cards and cardio.”

Crazy day all around!! LuLuLu the pup has a vet appt on Wednesday, which is two days from now. She’s in pain for unclear reasons in one leg, I think. So in the meantime, I brought my computer downstairs to my dad’s office area in an effort at keeping LuLu off the stairs. She wantsContinue reading “I loved my Sammy Samson!”

The cycle of shame.

For those of you who are following my diet journey, scroll down past the asterisks! 🙂 That part starts there. Everything before it is too depressing to read anyway. Oh! And, Emilia, you might want to skip this blog post. 🙂 Okay, so Charlie wrote back to me this morning thusly: Meg, We have threeContinue reading “The cycle of shame.”

Happy day of the turkey!

So, I’m going to try the Bright Lines Eating diet. Both of my parents are willing to pay me $200 if I manage to lose weight. That’s great! But I’m worried about hunger with this one. The book tells you exactly what to eat and how much of it to eat. Bear with my memory here, becauseContinue reading “Happy day of the turkey!”

The origin of my food addiction.

TRIGGER WARNING: GENERAL, BROAD DISCUSSION OF PHYSICAL ABUSE (NOTHING TOO GRAPHIC, JUST SOME NONSPECIFIC REFERENCES) I’ve been reading a very enlightening dieting book called Bright Line Eating by Susan Peirce Thompson, PhD. You can follow that link to its Amazon page. It talks about how an addiction can occur if you overindulge in an addictiveContinue reading “The origin of my food addiction.”

Help! I am trapped in the bathroom!
