Bullets for my gun

If I can figure out how to load bullets in a gun the plan could work. The problem is, there are so many boxes of bullets and I do not know what goes to what gun. Timing is going to be a problem with my husband always up my ass these days. My PTSD has... Continue Reading →

Nobody Listens To Little Girls

Everyday in my town, Lansing Michigan, Dr, Larry Nassar has been on trial for sexually assaulting over 200 young women.  Justice...  The #metoo movement opened the floodgates to the horrors women and young children have endured for centuries as a result of a culture created to ignore the cries of little girls.  One echoing message...

Naltrexone Side Effects

Since June of last year I have lost 20 pounds unintentionally.  At first, I blamed the naltrexone for causing gastrointestinal complications requiring me to eat every meal in the bathroom.  Not really, that is gross, but you get the point... Then loss of appetite which is very common with this medication did not help my... Continue Reading →

Holy SHIT 2017!!

Thus far, the year 2017 was the most unforgettable period in my life.  First and foremost, I would like to give a "shout out of thanks" to the pharmaceutical companies who make psychiatric medications. LOL... Also, my psychiatric nurse practitioner for discontinuing medication that left me emotionless, numb and cold for over 10 years. For... Continue Reading →

Who's to say good or bad... The story goes like this, a man had a horse run away from his farm, friends said to him, "wow you are falling on bad times", the man replied, "who's to say good or bad".  The next day the man's son found the horse and while riding back to... Continue Reading →

My granddaughter Addy has Jacobsen Syndrome, a rare genetic chromosomal disorder. Without getting too clinical, chromosome 11q has a deletion, resulting in severe developmental, physical and mental  delays.  Tomorrow Addy turns 3 years old, she is a miracle, and I have no idea what life would be like without her in our family.

Still one of those people who feels emotional anxiety, physical exhaustion, and a general sense of being overwhelmed after a vulnerable interaction.  Particularly, when said interaction was in an unfamiliar environment,  with a loved one whom I have hurt.

There is no shame and/or guilt compared to a parent who fucked up with their children.  I could write a book on the numerous failures of raising my children.  It is only until you mess up your own children do you forgive your parents, and the cycle continues.  Believe me, your children will blame you...

3 Vasectomies Later

I wonder if my mother has died yet.  How can someone survive so long in hospice?  They say you die how you lived,  well she was a miserable person,  therefore she will die a miserable death.  My only regret, not asking her the truth about who my real father is. Is he the one on... Continue Reading →
