The Day I Wanted A Dog Castle For Prince

I almost forgot about this, until this morning.  I woke up with ideas flooding my brain and after watching The Black Swan, I went back to my never gets old regret that I never continued ballet.  So, I text my cousin (she works overnights at the air force base, so I knew she was up) who has done ballet and ask her about how to buy a pointe shoe. (yup, those ones with the wood… Continue Reading

Adventures in the Psych Ward

I was reading the book Manic, by Terri Cheney and I got to a part in her story where she is describing a visit to a psych facility.  Ms. Cheney was describing it with such vividness, it brought me back to 10 years ago; the first group of my hospital visits .(I’ve had 3 of them, 2 were within a 3 months period and the last one was about 7 years later at a different… Continue Reading

Another birthday creeping up…

Another year farther away from what my life used to be.  That can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how you look at it.  This year, I want to make this a birthday to remember, but I want to remember it the way my new life is; not how life used to be. What did life used to be? (I’m going to use different names to protect the privacy of those… Continue Reading

What IS this glitter revenge I speak of? *from the archives*

Glitter revenge is something I learned from one of my favorite podcasts, Keith and The Girl. Most people hate glitter. Why? Because it sticks to absolutely everything and never seems to go away. When trying to clean it up, it’s sometimes so invisible, unless it hits the light a certain way, that you never can tell 100% if it’s all cleaned up. Months later you will find specks of glitter stuck to your black pants, or the… Continue Reading

What Can Cure the Blackest Soul?

Just when I thought that I felt as miserable as I could feel, yesterday came and made me feel a million times worse. I crumbled to pieces as I sat there and listened to misrepresentation galore and a collection of preposterous self-made theories being passed off as truths poured out like Kool-Aid into a child’s glass on a hot summer day. To add insult to injury, past behaviors that I had tried so very hard… Continue Reading

Dear Mr. Itstime Tomoveon,

Dear Mr. Itstime Tomoveon, I regret to inform you that it really is not a good idea to call someone 10 years after they have broken up with you to ask if they are still mad at you; especially when upon said break up, you stalked them for months and months and made their life so incredibly unpleasant they moved miles away without a forwarding address to get some peace. To be quite honest, I’m… Continue Reading

Emotions cause our body pain?

Yes.  They actually do.  I just found this AMAZING chart that shows where our body feels the pain of the different emotions.  Think of the last time you were so angry either at someone or about something.  Did you stomach hurt?  When you have a lot on your mind or have so much going on, almost like the “weight of the world on your shoulders,” do your shoulders hurt?  When you are afraid of something,… Continue Reading

Stigma. I did a little research study.

Stigma. One very important issue we, as a community, try to battle.  It’s the negative assumptions associated with bipolar and those who have been diagnosed with the illness.   I personally have experienced instances where certain assumptions were made about me once I revealed I had bipolar.  I became viewed as a liability.  But then there are the stigmas we see being promoted in the media.  Not too long ago we witnessed a huge media blow up… Continue Reading
