Empathy or none?

My dad and I just got into a ridonk debate over whether I have too much empathy or none at all. (I’ll let you guess which side he took–it was the wrong one.) But I should preface this by saying that I’m stressed from getting the vaccine. It took four hours of mostly being onContinue reading “Empathy or none?”

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.”

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,¬†really 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.”

Dreams of amnesia.

TRIGGER WARNING: PHYSICAL ABUSE¬†(but nothing too graphic, I don’t think…) This is weird. I had a dream that I was googling a handful of search terms together: trauma, scary, memory, and amnesia. Amnesia. When I woke up, I was like, shut the front door. So then I just accepted it as fact that there wasContinue reading “Dreams of amnesia.”

We’re feeling trigger happy!

Do you ever find yourself tracking people from your past, keeping an eye on them online, that sort of thing? Well, I’ve been doing that with Ash, my former friend whom I haven’t heard one word from. I have a stalker facebook account, and I think she knew I was using it, because she deletedContinue reading “We’re feeling trigger happy!”
