Sixth Folder, Sixth Picture

Posted November 2, 2008 By LifeIsChange

I was randomly browsing blogs instead of going to bed last night, like I should have, and I found a post someone made after seeing another blogger do the same thing.  It said to open your MyPictures, then go to the sixth folder and post the sixth picture. Hmm.  Mine is kind of weird and […]

Results . . . and Results

Posted January 12, 2009 By LifeIsChange

I saw my nurse practitioner at my doctor’s office last Monday morning to go over the results of the Holter monitor and echo cardiogram, and she said it is mild MVP, which I already knew was not a big deal as long as it’s mild.  I’m supposed to make an appointment to see the cardiologist, […]

The Nastiness of Food Addiction

Posted July 7, 2009 By LifeIsChange

Well, this is about the nastiness of my food addiction.  I can’t speak for anyone else’s. So, I was talking to my therapist yesterday about cravings.  Not the physical kind of cravings that tend to fade somewhat when one begins to avoid excess sugars, but the emotional cravings that have driven my compulsive overeating for […]

The Weight Thing

Posted July 8, 2009 By LifeIsChange

Following Kerro’s description of food-issue-related topics (the Food Thing, the Weight Thing, and the Body Image Thing), I thought I’d  write an entry about the Weight Thing.  I’ll discuss the Body Image Thing at a future date, as that may be the most difficult to write or talk about. My therapist and I talked about […]

If It Acts Like A Child And Feels Like A Child . . .

Posted July 8, 2009 By LifeIsChange

The dreams came in like needy children, tugging at my sleeve I said, “I have no way of feeding you, so leave”. Prince of Darkness – Indigo Girls Hmmm.  Well. Ater I wrote and then re-read yesterday’s entry about food-addiction-related cravings, I was struck with how obvious it seemed. All the pondering I’ve done about […]

Leaving On A Jet Plane

Posted February 11, 2010 By LifeIsChange

I’m going to fly, tomorrow night, for the first time since I was a teenager.  I’m a little unsure of just what to expect, but I’m very excited anyway, because I’ll be seeing my SS when I get off the plane at the other end.  ♥ It’s my first visit to her neck of the […]

My Trip, and A Few Pictures

Posted February 19, 2010 By LifeIsChange

I arrived safely home on Monday from my trip, and I had a great time! The flight up: My flight left Friday night, about a half hour later than originally scheduled, because when the plane came in from the previous flight, they had to circle a few times while waiting for their turn to land.  […]

More About The Body Image Thing

Posted February 27, 2010 By LifeIsChange

When I saw my therapist at the beginning of this month, one of the things we talked about was my feeling I had brought up, in an email the week before, that I’m nearing the winding-down point in therapy.  The topic came up in session as part of a discussion around my plans for this […]

Strange Horoscope

Posted March 10, 2010 By LifeIsChange

I don’t read my horoscope very often, especially the ones that show up on just about every home page option list that only take the sun sign into account.  I mean, come on, every Gemini out there is not going to have the exact same kind of day. But today, as I was revamping my […]

This happens a lot, in my life.  When there is something I’m really supposed to know or address, it keeps popping up everywhere, again and again.  In conversations (either between myself and others or in overheard conversations), in articles or blog posts I stumble on when searching for something else, on TV.  I can ignore […]

Going Off Of Yaz / Beyaz

Posted July 19, 2011 By LifeIsChange

I realized it’s been a while, again, since I posted, so I think it’s time for a catch-up. The biggest thing that has been on my radar recently has been going off of Yaz (which is now called Beyaz). Ickiness warning for anyone who finds discussion of women’s health issues off-putting: the rest of this […]
