BP – Blessing in Disguise

There was a time when bipolar disorder was a dark shade against my window of the world, but eventually I got better. Now I believe that my bipolar disorder is really kind of a blessing in disguise. I was working as a medical transcriptionist in a hospital when I “lost it” and had to be […]

Unhappiness My Own Fault

Someone told me lately that if I’m unhappy, that it’s my own fault. My first impulse was to hit them. Now, if you saw me, you’d think that this was funny, because I’m all of 4’10” tall, and weigh about 115 pounds. No, that’s a lie. I wish I weighed 115 pounds. I really weigh […]

Striving for Perfection

I am the ultimate perfectionist. Yes, me. I even got a fortune cookie one time that said, “You have a yearning for perfection,” do you believe that?” Even Confucius knows it! But it’s a real battle for me. I expect things from myself that I would never expect from anyone else, and it really messes […]

Almost Over!

Well, it looks like it’s almost over, folks! President Biden says that everyone should have their Covid vaccinations by the middle of April, and many states are talking about lifting the mask mandates already. My husband and I got our vaccinations a couple of weeks ago because we are considered high risk, and it was […]

Some Semblance of Normal Soon?

Well, Phase 1c of the Covid vaccine was released today, which means it’s available for me and my husband, him for diabetes and heart condition and me for chronic kidney disease. I was lucky enough to get appointments for us at Walmart, which is right up the street, so we don’t even have to go […]

We Have a Winner!

Well, folks, we have a winner! After all the rigamarole over ballots and court cases that Trump caused, and the protests and what happened with that all at the White House, everything went ahead as scheduled after all and we have a winner – Biden is our new president. I’m not saying who I voted […]

Happy New Year?

Well, I would wish you a Happy New Year, but is it? I, along with everyone else I know, was so very happy to see 2020 end and was more than happy to welcome in 2021 with open arms, totally optimistic and expecting that the new year would bring with it better times. Well, it […]

The Vote Is In!

Well, the vote is in. Maybe. It’s all over…except for the recount. And the court cases. That’s if the judges don’t throw them out. And they should, by rights, because they are frivolous, and ridiculous, in my opinion. I am not going to get political here (as I have avoided it up to this point), […]

The Future is Now

I feel so old. I never thought I’d be one to say, “When I was young,” or “I never thought I’d live to see the day…” but here we are, where people (not just women, now) are coloring their hair bright purple, blue, or green (pink is considered mild) like we used to see in […]

Covid-19 Still Raging On

Can you believe Covid-19 is still raging on? I thought it’d be over long before now, didn’t you? It seems like there is no end in sight. This is all so bizarre. Everywhere you go, people are wearing masks. At least they should be, and for the most part, they are, which is good. But […]
