Scared of Success…


I met my friend at Starbuck’s. I started rattling my thoughts off. They didn’t even seem that coherent. I was talking very fast, not unlike me, but as I was talking I was also searching. Searching for it to make sense. Prior to meeting up with her I had spent the past few hours really […]

I Have a Major Confession: Two Weeks


This isn’t really easy to talk about, but it’s necessary. Maybe it will help someone who is hurting feel like they are not alone. Maybe it will help someone who loves someone who struggles with mental illness be a better ally. Maybe I just need to put it into writing so I protect myself. A […]

Time Heals Everything.


I’ve heard that time heals everything. And when people say it, I bet they WANT to believe it. The idea of feeling pain forever doesn’t sound appealing at all. Nobody’s signing up for that.

My Roommates. I find myself being tested often, but NOBODY and I mean NOBODY tests me like my roommates.  Somehow over the last couple of weeks they have developed an awful fear of sleeping alone in their own rooms so they just think it’s ok to join me in my room AND in my bed. […]
