When everyone is gone and only grief remains the glasses still have unfinished liquor and the house echoes with quiet bullets of memories and swollen eyes look at the trash that still needs to be taken outside because the garbage truck drivers don’t know about the pain that happened here...

And just like that, the world has changed. It feels as though a switch was flipped and the darkness barreled in. Just like that, we're living in social isolation. Just like that, we're afraid to leave our homes in fear of microscopic organisms that can kill us...or live inside us... Continue reading

I was looking back at this blog this evening, reading my meandering little diatribes and incessant whining. I hate it. I can't stand any of it. I guess that's akin to me breaking up with my former, younger self. This could be a way for me to practice acceptance...acceptance of... Continue reading

Because it is painfully rare for me to have a moment completely alone (or it has been for the past five days), I feel compelled to talk to myself through my blog. There is no one demanding my time and attention. My presence isn’t being commanded at any conference sessions.... Continue reading

I have a ton of shit to do today. Like, a suffocating, inordinate, inhuman amount…and yet, here I am at the dodgy Northside Crazy Mocha, drinking very average coffee and breaking my teeth on just-barely “fresh” biscotti. The wi-fi isn’t working (is anyone here else experiencing this problem?) and there’s... Continue reading

Quick flashback: 2016. I'm sitting in the Oxford Centre Starbucks, nursing an Americano as though it were a whiskey ginger ale (and ardently wishing it were so). I'm staring dejectedly out the window, watching the passersby wistfully and wondering if they had a cloud of stress that was a oppressive... Continue reading

This year has been complete shit, and we’re a solid 28 days in. My third roomie abandoned ship, so it’s now just me, LD, and my gatos (who have taken LD’s last name in addition to mine in an adorable and petulant act of solidarity). Mannykins peaced out because he... Continue reading

It's 2018 and I'm still using Typepad and I STILL haven't any plan or intention to alter that. I'm beginning this year with obstinance and defiance. I intend to continue to be a badass warrior with an extreme literary bent. The "bent," however, probably needs to become a little bendier,... Continue reading

I’m in Paris. I’m happier than any human being has any right to be. This is my first night of many on this 18-day voyage. Paris is lovely, though the elements have been unreasonably formidable. Do you want to know what I’m doing right now?? I’m sipping red wine, listening... Continue reading

"I've looked at life from both sides now From win and lose and still somehow It's life's illusions I recall I really don't know life at all." Joni Mitchell's Van Gogh-esque portrait on the cover of her Both Sides Now album simultaneously shatters my heart, even as it fills it... Continue reading

Can we just take a second to mourn the fact that I'm STILL using Typepad? This blog is 10 years young and it is quite precarious, indeed...I'm actually terrified that the Typepad powers-that-be will decide to lock me out of my own blog at any moment. This site is like... Continue reading

Here I am again, a frequent guest with a wickedly wild heart in the Heartbreak Hotel. Yet again. My latest love affair (or whatever it was) has left me utterly decimated. I'm actually considering a not-so-glamorous return to taking my antidepressants following a seven-year absence, though I absolutely despise them.... Continue reading

My mind seems insistent upon racing at 1000 mph in a million different directions for a million different reasons; never am I grounded in the present time and space. I feel as though I'm incessantly floating, wondering where I need to be next, what I need to accomplish and what... Continue reading

I am trying so hard to thwart the pervasive, constant anxiety, but I'm failing colossally. I don't believe that I've felt anxiety this acutely before; during the past year, I've struggled with debilitating episodes that have left me shaken and unable to cope with even the most basic situations. These... Continue reading

They don't get it because they lack empathy. They believe that being a "good Christian" is donating a few cans of food at Christmastime to the less fortunate, and then lecturing them for the rest of the year about the perils of feeling "entitled" for needing the donation. Continue reading

I am hoping against hope that I'm not a horrible, completely selfish and unreasonable roommate. I'm also hoping that I don't end up hating everyone because of my singular tendencies. I'm quite happy and accustomed to living the solo life, and I'm unsure as to how well I am able to share at this juncture. Continue reading

I'm frustrated. I've been going to therapy in search of answers, but I'm leaving with even more questions. I have a masters degree in psychology, yet I have been unable to harness the therapeutic enhancements that therapy can offer. I feel like we're spinning our wheels, or that I'm an... Continue reading

The soft vestiges of my days in the Catholic Church--and AA--linger profoundly in my microcosmic perspective. The truth is that, as much as I'd like to believe otherwise, I'm no heroine within the scope of my existence. (Nor in anyone else's, for that matter.) But I'm not fully a villain,... Continue reading

I'm not going to black out my profile picture on social media. I refuse. For me, it evokes a chilling throwback to a very dark time, a brief moment that remains etched indelibly on my soul. My dear friend, Jackie, blacked out her profile picture immediately before cancer took from... Continue reading

I'm not going to complain about this for a extended post. Complaining does nothing. I have to suck it up and, as I tell (some of) my patients, I need to "live in the solution, and not in the problem." So here's the latest struggle: I have to move. Again.... Continue reading

It's early. I haven't yet shaken off the vestiges of dreams which were, for the first time in almost a week, not violent and anxiety-provoking. I actually rested last night. I'm uncertain as to how I've accomplished having a peaceful slumber, given that my rumination was active prior to falling... Continue reading

Sojourner Truth, one of country's most prolific feminists, famously wondered "what time of night it is." I've been thinking about Sojourner Truth a great deal over the past week. I've concluded that it's still very dark and we have many terrors to endure before morning. Five days have passed since... Continue reading

And once again, I'm about to cry myself to sleep. My heart is so heavy, burdened with the knowledge that the upcoming battle is inevitably long and arduous. I know that I'll have to fight like hell to continue to provide the compassion and love that are my distinctive honor... Continue reading

Today's the day. It's the first of November, which means, among other things, that it's "National Novel Writing Month." The challenge for the month is to compose 1,500 words per day, in an effort to end November with a total of 50,000 words...a novel. Every year to aspire to conquer... Continue reading
