Doing my dead-cat routine!

I haven’t blogged lately about my iffing (intermittent fasting) efforts. I figured I’d catch you all up on it.  I’d assumed that a later-in-the-day window for eating would work well for me, like from 4:00 PM until bedtime, for example. However, I was wrong. For whatever weird reason, I feel compelled to eat as soonContinue reading “Doing my dead-cat routine!”

“You’re fired!”

I fired my therapist. I honestly feel a bit traumatized. And I haven’t been right in the head since this went down. After I left therapy on Thursday, I swung by McDonald’s and got a huge bag of food. I entered the store with my mask on and placed my order, but the people workingContinue reading ““You’re fired!””

Misery at midnight

I’ve been depressed all day. I’ve already taken two naps. This was after I cried myself to sleep last night and felt miserable. I consulted the Tarot cards to consider pros and cons of ditching my therapist, and the cards confirmed a lot of what I knew. I’ve decided on a course of action: noContinue reading “Misery at midnight”

What a tangled web we weave…

I’m feeling very discouraged after the therapy session from hell yesterday. I always tell the therapist I want/need EMDR, and the therapist always becomes curious about my past and wants to do talk therapy. The last time this happened, we had the therapist who wound up accusing me of being suicidical when I was, inContinue reading “What a tangled web we weave…”

Help! I’ve been wrapped in cellophane for decades.

So, yeah, this is really depressing. I went to therapy today, and the therapist thinks I’m trapped in childhood. It makes sense. I have idealized views of sex as being spiritual and loving, but I can’t handle the mechanics of it or male nudity, for that matter. Yeah, I’m an overgrown child, like Michael Jackson.Continue reading “Help! I’ve been wrapped in cellophane for decades.”

A Point of No Return

My life has felt so unfocused and undirected lately. I’ve been going to therapy and trying to find help from other sources as well (friends, self-help books, etc.), and I require a lot of down time to process the therapy sessions. I don’t have to process them consciously. But subconscious processing makes me become aContinue reading “A Point of No Return”

Let’s not rule it out entirely, Dear Abby…

DEAR ABBY: My 28-year-old daughter is having our first grandchild. My daughter and I have a good relationship, but she doesn’t want me to be around when she goes into labor. All her life I have been the most loving and caring mother I could be to her. She has a great husband. Should IContinue reading “Let’s not rule it out entirely, Dear Abby…”

Going well!

So, today’s going quite well. I actually found the motivation to do some woodworking again!! I’ve had a project in the works for a few weeks, and today I finally cut the wood, drilled the wood, sanded the wood, and have started priming the wood. Then it’ll be painted, assembled, and topcoated. It’s going toContinue reading “Going well!”

The fasting’s going pretty well.

Hi guys! I thought I’d give an update on my efforts at fasting. First off, I weighed myself, and I weigh around 205. I think I managed to break just under 200 earlier this year, but then my diet went to heck. I suspect I’ve lost a few pounds off of whatever my weight jumpedContinue reading “The fasting’s going pretty well.”
