• Anxiety,  Mental Health

    Overdue.

    Sometimes bad friends pay visits at the worst times.
    During such a time, I managed to write about our day together and come up with this story.

    Anxiety is very real.
    He comes in many different forms.
    Be nice to yourself.
    You are not crazy.

    Taffy loaves and a big question…

    It snowed a little here last night, just enough to highlight the piles of leaves that I haven’t raked yet.

    Last week Michael and I went to Gatlinburg with his family, they had rented a cabin between Pigeon Forge and Downtown Gatlinburg. It was a rainy and cold few days, but we managed to fill the time up with plenty of food, Phase 10, pool and a little exploring.

  • Halloween

    Moving on…

    And just like that, it’s over.

    Hope you enjoyed your Halloween! We didn’t get one single trick-or-treater, so I’m a little bummed… but I guess that means extra candy for us!

    Failure and pity-parties: A confession.

     

    I’m not good at keeping up with things. I forget to take my vitamins, I forget to thaw chicken for tomorrow’s dinner, I forget to work out, I forget to call friends. I make to-do lists that I forget to look at, and sometimes I’m so unmotivated I write down easy tasks that I can cross off to feel more productive: “Get the mail”, “clean off your desk”, “poop”.

    I get easily overwhelmed and then the dreaded anxiety kicks in. My mom is the exact opposite. She has a specific day and a specific time of day for the things she needs to do. She doesn’t even think twice about it- she just does stuff, then still manages to get dinner on the table before 6:30!

    So I dropped the ball on Inktober…

  • Anxiety,  Fear

    Mirrors are my greatest fear…

    I’m an adult (well, that might be a little debatable) who still gets scared of the dark. Hallways, closets and under the bed are all full of monsters just waiting for me to turn my back. Welcome to my nightmare… don’t run; it only makes them want to chase you MORE. (this is a slider image, click the arrow to view full comic)

     

    Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!
