The week from hell is upon us, and it’s only Wednesday?!

If this week was a ship that I could valiantly leap off of, it would be “woman overboard!!!” in two seconds. Okay, it hasn’t been that bad. Meg, have you lost your mind? Pollyanna herself would quit playing the glad game at this point.¬† To recap a few points, on Monday I spent five mindnumbingContinue reading “The week from hell is upon us, and it’s only Wednesday?!”

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.”

Fixing the pattern.

Dear Amy: I’m a smart, well-educated woman in my mid-50s. I’ve been dating “Chas,” (in his mid-60s) for five years. This is my first relationship after over 30 years with my ex. (My ex-husband abruptly left me and our kids for another woman). Chas and I have maintained a long-distance relationship. He tells me dailyContinue reading “Fixing the pattern.”

Deception.

DEAR HARRIETTE: I have a 4-month-old daughter with a woman I never dated exclusively but was hanging out with for a while. When she told me she was pregnant, I asked about any other men, and she said there was no one else. I accepted that, and my family and I stood by her theContinue reading “Deception.”

A million updates!

TRIGGER WARNING: DISCUSSION OF PHYSICAL ABUSE AND SLIGHT SEXUAL UNDERTONES¬† So, there’s a lot going on with me (none of it horrid–it’s all good), so I can’t imagine how long it’ll take to write this blog post. It’s 3:47 now, so let’s find out. First of all, the fishies are all dead. (Oh. Actually, thatContinue reading “A million updates!”

I’m just being too ambitious today! Geez.

TRIGGER WARNING: SUICIDE¬†(but I’m not suicidal now–it’s in the past) So, I’m not sure which direction my life is headed in. I’ve bailed on my second novel of the year because I wasn’t feeling it. I haven’t sold any furniture, but I haven’t tried very hard. I get agitated when my furniture is imperfect, andContinue reading “I’m just being too ambitious today! Geez.”

Unloved.

I’m really dragging. Nothing interests me, even though there are so many fun things I could be doing. Well, maybe not at this late hour, but in general. I’ve just quit caring about projects. The house is a mess, and that doesn’t include the dog fur that’s all over the place. I can’t keep upContinue reading “Unloved.”
