Treating Others As You Want to Be Treated? I call bullshit!!!!

“Treat Others As You Would Want To Be Treated” That seems to be the age old saying as you grow up.  You hear it from teachers, parents, aunts, uncles, and any other authority figure you can think of.  But if you really stop and take a look at things now a days, is that REALLY the way things are?  I…

Therein the problem lies.  LIES.  No…

We all had a “Jake Ryan”

The Elephant In The Room…..or the mouse that feels like the elephant…….

What do you do when someone asks you to do something that is a common day occurance for almost everyone, but for you, is one of the most impossible things to do and they don’t know how almost impossible it is because you are too embarrassed to tell them?  They know there is a reason why you avoid it, but…

In the past few weeks, I have had people who have said they thought I was one of the strongest people they know, that I am stronger than they ever could be under the circumstances, and that they are amazed.  I have also had the complete opposite and have been told that I am…

Where I’ve Been…. You sure you want to know?

Having bipolar sucks.  Thats all I have to say.  No matter how much you try to pretend it isn’t there because you are taking your meds and doing all you can to maintain stability.  There is always something that creeps up and literally beats you over the head and rips out your insides to the point it makes you crazy.…

The Broken Stick and Guerilla Glue?!!!

When things come to an end, not everything has a happy ending like a fairytale.  I mean, lets get real here.  When Cinderella landed the Prince, there were a bunch of girls out there that did not end up with fairytale endings!  BUT, that didn’t mean that their life ended.  Nope. That gave them the chance to pick up and…
