I’m exhausted

Yep, there she is, folks.  My new Side Chick, Candy.  Get it? Candy Cane?  I know, eye roll.  I'll see myself out. I'm more and more shocked at how exhausting chronic pain is.  I mean really.  It takes me twice as long to get anywhere, I'm afraid of falling - hence the cane and people… Continue reading I’m exhausted

Bandaids over Bullet holes

So I cancelled my date with the guy last weekend. I also told him I wanted to go back to being just friends. I explained that he had opened my eyes to my inability to trust and the triggers (how I hate that word) that he spurred.  He reluctantly agreed.

Crushing like a 15 year old

Let's just change my name to Swoony McSwoonerton, shall we? Remember back in Middle School when you had a crush?  A boy or girl who just seemed like the best thing since sliced bread and you admired them from afar and imagined what it would be like to have them like you back and go… Continue reading Crushing like a 15 year old

It’s Casual

Can we talk about something?  It's probably not something you hear all the time and it's likely not going to be a very popular opinion, but.... Casual sex.  Hook up culture.  It's so perfect.

Birthday thoughts….

Today I am 48. Sometimes I get the birthday blues.  Not this year.  I always feel like a fool when I get birthday blues.  I should be so grateful for another birthday!

Speaking your truth

Can you ask for what you want?  Can you speak your truth even if it's uncomfortable and awkward? I have been in a low key relationship for the past three months with a lovely man.  Of course I am referring to Keanu.  He is strong, capable, smart, funny and has a litany of other qualities… Continue reading Speaking your truth
