One Last “It’s All About Meeeee”

I recognize that this blog is quite self-serving. But I need to tell someone this stuff as I go through it, and my faithful 15 readers give me just the encouragement I need. Maybe all this will end up in a book someday. At least, that's what I tell myself to justify being so self-serving.... Continue Reading →

Love Never Fails

I have spent most of my adult life trying to learn how to love. I just didn't seem to get it. I just didn't know how to do it. So my biggest prayer, my go-to request throughout my adult life, was, "Lord, show me how to love." But I never seemed to improve, and I... Continue Reading →

Back To The Drawing Board

I'm back in therapy, dealing with the next stage of this journey, the highlights of which include my recent remembrances regarding the Gorilla and some of my ex's other personality-shards. That and the fact that my daughter got married last week and didn't invite her father. He doesn't even know she's married now. Also, did... Continue Reading →

True Peace Takes Time

And it wasn't just one conversation.  It was... Continue Reading →

My New Superpower

The most amazing thing happened today. Well, it started yesterday, when I got upset. That wasn't amazing.  That hurt.  I had asked my kids to pitch in on getting the house ready for the exterminators to rid us of termites.  They never came out and said, "No."  They just didn't do it. Come to think... Continue Reading →

But I’m Telling You The Truth…

I wrote yesterday about what the effects would be on a person's psyche after years of constantly getting caught off guard by ADHD-induced information gaps. Which got me thinking.  What triggers have affected my psyche? And it occurred to me then that I have been triggered to feel like I am not a reliable reporter.... Continue Reading →

As It Turns Out, I Was Right

So yesterday I went to my resident ADHD expert (my daughter, who is grabbing her own ADHD by the horns by researching it) and asked her about my theory regarding ADHD and crisis. (That they default to The Excitement Plan whenever possible and, in fact, tend to make it more exciting than it needs to... Continue Reading →
