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 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’m down with strep throat again. Yippee!!! Folks may remember my EPIC 35th birthday party plans were ruined when I woke up on my birthday eve with the same fire in my throat.

Dentures.

I fear the dentist. I fear the judgement and the shame and the ridicule and the heavy-handed sales tactics after they peer into my messed up mouth. It’s always the same: “You can’t go on like this. You need to get this work done. Don’t you care if you lose all your teeth!?” YES. I CARE. But I’ve spent most...


I Do This Sh*t To Myself.

Do I sound like a broken record when I talk about my anxiety? It feels that way, and that in itself makes me even more anxious. I go through periods of feeling like I want to hide it all away and pretend that I am totally fine. I want to appear cool as though nothing in the world can shake...


The Week that SCOTUS Broke My Heart…

When I woke up this morning, I was planning to write a post about my valiant attempts to teach my kids about money this summer break. I have so many conflicted feelings about my children’s sense of entitlement. I grew up poor and I never want them to feel the sting of going without lunch or being jealous that your...
