Taking offense.

DEAR ABBY: I have a friend from college I’m really close to, but they have begun an annoying habit I need help addressing. We live more than 1,000 miles apart, and over the past six months, I’ve noticed that my friend has been giving me unsolicited advice on daily tasks that don’t concern them. AtContinue reading “Taking offense.”

Steps for better wellbeing!

TRIGGER WARNING: low-key discussions of suicidality, complete with jokes! Sanity has been restored. I’ve taken the following proactive measures for better equanimity: I wrote to my psychiatrist, because a few people suggested it, and then it occurred to me that my bipolar (or something else–there’s a long list) might not be as well-medicated as itContinue reading “Steps for better wellbeing!”
