Grief bites!

Dear Amy: My husband died very suddenly a few months ago of covid. This was a second marriage, as my first husband died young, of cancer. When I reach out to my sister, she gives me advice about how to deal with it. I know she means well, but she really has no idea whatContinue reading “Grief bites!”

Prince Albert in a can!

Guess what? I’ve created a new diet for myself. I’m calling it the canned foods diet. I guess it’s rather self-explanatory. I’m not wanting to only eat canned foods. Technically, I don’t care what I eat if it’s healthy. But I’ve realized that canned foods are affordable, healthy (I’m trying to get BPA-free cans), andContinue reading “Prince Albert in a can!”

Set down the keys to the truck and walk away slowly.

I’ve been studying my anger issues from the perspective of power struggles. The concept of power struggles seems to apply to maybe… hmm… 85% of my outbursts. I watched a helpful YouTube video about power struggles, and it made some good points. It got me to thinking that we can’t control the other person. WhatContinue reading “Set down the keys to the truck and walk away slowly.”

Angry about anger!

Help! I’m angry about anger. Ugh. I’m trying to reason through how to be less reactive and volatile. I’ve been flipping through my anger books today, and only one thing jumped out at me: go back to when you were angry and figure out what you should’ve done differently. It’s a tricky issue. So, we’veContinue reading “Angry about anger!”

Everything the U-Scan stands for.

So, I just completely lost it at the grocery store. My dad says I shouldn’t go there at night. Quite honestly, I shouldn’t go at all. When I got there, I parked and saw someone sneaking out of the side door and immediately getting inside a getaway car driven by someone else. Intrigued, I wonderedContinue reading “Everything the U-Scan stands for.”

Hell, yes.

Yeah, I’m braindead, but very¬† proud of myself. I think I started on this treadmill kick last Sunday. (It’s Saturday today, for reference, if you’re reading this in the future.) I spent one hour on the treadmill then, two on Monday, two on Tuesday, one on Wednesday (the day I spent four hours driving toContinue reading “Hell, yes.”

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!”

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!”

I’ve got it! But I’m still angry.

I booked a talk session with my life coach, and I felt close to getting to the problem during our session, and then I lay in bed to take a nap, and it sort of hit me. I couldn’t understand why I was so upset about what happened, especially that particular part of it (whereContinue reading “I’ve got it! But I’m still angry.”
