Yesterday Me, Different, Than Today Me

Yesterday Me, Different, Than Today Me

Last year I was on Hilton Head Island visiting a friend from college. I am not great at keeping in touch with people, even on Facebook. However, some people are forever on my mind and in my heart. This friend is one of those people. If she and her family ever needed...
Date Night, Interrupted

Date Night, Interrupted

Date Night, Interrupted My hubs and I went out for date night. We have been trying to find a place to attend bar trivia. We finally found a place. That place was packed! We ended up sitting at the bar. No biggie, I have gotten over my desire not to sit at the bar a...

Narcissists Main Weapon – Projection

The Other Side Not all projections are harmful. For those who take the time to look at their reactions and interactions, Projection can be a helpful tool, as I wrote in Projecting Onto Others Isn’t All Bad. I am not a therapist, so perhaps the professionals...

The Choice is Always Yours

The Choice is Always Yours

To Decrease or Not Decrease It’s time. Several weeks ago, I started decreasing my medication. I was on what is considered a high dose of Zoloft, at 150 mg per day (technically sertraline – a generic version of Zoloft for those keeping track). The first few...
On My Negative Worldview

On My Negative Worldview

Hardwired for Negativity “You have kind of a negative view of the world.” I thought for a moment about that statement. That I have a negative worldview is not news to me. I notice it when I write. I see it when I take a moment to think about how I feel...

Finding Relaxation and Joy

A Comment on Finding Enjoyment and Relaxation A lot of people read my blog, but not many comments. And that is okay. We all need to be where we are in the moment and not feel that we have to. When I get comments, they are usually via email. I thought I would share,...
