Big Goodbyes, Magic Jars, and . . . Breathing

This post is about a couple of topics that are probably kind of strange to see written about in one blog post, but in the end, the connection will make sense. On February 8th, I had my final session with Therapist, after finishing my job and just before moving (yep; I’m in Jersey now, with […]

I’ve Got NaNo On My Mind . . . and . . . Is “Wanting” A Sign Of Good Mental Health?

So, while asking myself whether I should or shouldn’t participate in NaNoWriMo this year, because I’ve got a lot on my plate, getting ready for my move early next year, I’ve also been planning my novel. I guess that’s my answer. It’ll be my seventh NaNoWriMo, and hopefully my third win.  It’s become such a […]

Ok, Ok, I Get It: Exercise! . . . and . . . ADD and Fibromyalgia’s Effects on Balance, Connectedness Between Mind and Body

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 […]

Seeing Myself As A Stranger

My therapist and I talked some more about the body image / self image thing when I saw her on the first.  One of the things we talked about was some professional photos that SS and I had taken in December (I’d emailed copies to her).  She asked me how I feel when I look […]

More About The Body Image Thing

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 […]

The One-Year Plan

As Kate noticed in her comment here, and as I mentioned again here, SS and I have been working on plans for living together in the future.  Because we live about 1000 miles apart, and because we have both been going through some major life changes in the last year or more, this takes planning. […]

My Trip, and A Few Pictures

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.  […]

Leaving On A Jet Plane

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 Inner Critic Speaks

I wrote this post back in September, and I’ve had it in my drafts folder ever since.  I guess I was planning to add to it at the time, but I kind of like it just as it is, now. I mentioned in a recent post that my inner critic has been quieter lately, and […]

Turning Points, Part II: NaNoWriMo

As I said in my last post, in the past two months or so (a little less, actually), there have been some huge, major turning points in my life, including but not limited to: Getting started on ADD meds My second NaNoWriMo win Decluttering and repairs at home . . . And my visit with […]
