The Curious Case of….Instincts

This week’s Curious case of … asks about instincts. How well do you trust your own instincts for sensing if something or someone is wrong for you and/or your life? Not well. My anxiety always overshadows my instincts and what might start as an honest twinge of instinct becomes a full-blown drama unfolding in myContinue reading “The Curious Case of….Instincts”

I acknowledged a trigger…CONFRONTATION

I like self-help books. They are always full of things I should do and want to do to fix…err…no, “fix” is the wrong word…understand my totally fucked up brain.

For others, the obsessive love of a man or woman or the need to make money, have expensive things, canContinue reading “Routine Changes are My Kryptonite”

Let’s talk Health

I have been labeled a hypochondriac and while I don’t necessarily 100% disagree, I don’t think I “make up” illnesses.  I just happed to be a patient Dr. House would have a field day with.  Yes, that alone puts me into a whacko category, but still… I have always had the pleasure of unique orContinue reading “Let’s talk Health”
