I have some sort of major malfunction where I can never quite allow myself to take my career seriously. No matter how “big” I get on the internet, no matter how many people pay me to write or speak, no matter the degrees I earn or the compliments I receive, I always chalk it up to some sort of accident. It was an accident that I got people to pay me to write. It was an accident that I attracted 30,750 fans to my facebook...

How I’m Getting Dinner On the Table (Even though I’m Exhausted.)

When Jonas started eating solids seven years ago, I vowed that I would get our new family to sit around a dinner table each evening like a “normal” family. It’s the kind of Normal Rockwell life that I always wanted growing up, and research shows that family dinner helps create healthier, happier families for a variety of different reasons. Problem...

The Only Way I’ll Make it Through The Next 9 Months…

I’m seeing a new therapist. The new therapist senses that the start of my school year is a huge source of stress and anxiety for me. (Really? I can’t get out of bed and I’ve lost all interest in living, but that’s a normal reaction to the first week of school, right? Right? It’s not? Damn.) So he asks me...

Too Much of a Good Thing.

(Disclaimer: I’m turning on the TMI filter again for this post, so if you don’t want to hear about things I probably shouldn’t be talking about on the internet, come back another day! If you’re family or in charge of my grades, maybe sit this one out. Otherwise, prepare yourself for some grown-up conversation about lady parts.) Remember the 30-Day...

I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth. I’m just back in Kansas City trying to wrap up my field practicum before my fall semester begins next week. The end of August is always a hectic time, but with me skipping across the country just days before starting a new school year, things are especially chaotic. I can’t even...

I don’t want to write about suicide. I don’t even want to think about it. I’ve been accused of being suicidal when I absolutely wasn’t, and dismissed when I actually was. But this week, suicide is all I can think about. In fact, I’ve hardly thought about anything else for the last 48 straight hours. Monday night, we took the...

If I Had Known That All You Wanted to Hear About is Sex…

After panicking so many times about writing that last post, and feeling so nervous about hitting the “Publish” button, I am so relieved and inspired by the overwhelming response from my readers. I think I’ve had more comments on that post than any other post since I moved to my subscription model. You guys were so supportive and willing to...

The 30-Day Sex Challenge

ID-10073181

I’ve been avoiding my blog for a week because I want to talk about something, but I don’t want certain people to read it. It’s deeply personal yet — I know from recent international internet debate — a common, shared experience among a great many people. And this is my personal blog, protected by a paywall, unavailable to google searches...
