It's just, like, a certain way of eating, okay? So, I don't do diets--and especially not fad diets. Because the simple fact is that most diets, especially fad diets, are crap. There's no magic key to losing weight or being healthy overall other than simply eating less in general, eating less processed crap specifically, and … Continue reading It’s not a diet, dammit
Dude, and I have seriously been in the throes of it this past week. Yesterday was so bad, I basically spent all day in bed not even wanting to listen to music or binge TV or write, while my kids essentially subsisted on popsicles and Netflix. Blah. But I got up sometime in the evening … Continue reading Depression is…depressing
You guyyyyyyyyyyyyyyys. I fucking jacked my back a week ago and today is the first day it's mostly not hurting instead of mostly not not hurting.

Having been diagnosed with clinical depression at age 11, that became my identity when considering … Continue reading Hello, my name is Anxiety
YOU GUYS. I didn't actually die! SUCCESS! But seriously. The past four weeks have been... Well, they've certainly been. So. You know what's a thing no one ever talks about? Cannabis addiction/withdrawal/detox. Now, I assumed no one ever talks about this because it's not, like, an actual thing, but... AU CONTRAIRE, MON FRERE. It's totes a thing … Continue reading The Update

We've … Continue reading Operation Get Your Proverbial Shit Together, Woman.
"Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What's important is the action. You don't have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow." --Carrie Fisher "The thing you are most afraid to write, write that." --Nayyirah Waheed I stumbled upon these quotes some time ago, and they immediately and lastingly … Continue reading I’m fine, just tired.
