Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat!  Oh hell why not, I’ll go with a trick please — Go ahead. Excite me.  I dare you.  Halloween is fast approaching, and soon the streets will be filled with the creatures of the night.  I don’t know about the rest of the world, but where I live Halloween will be celebrated…

Texting, Texting… 1.2.3.

The world we live in has changed dramatically over my life time, and I’m not sure for the good.  People spend enormous amounts of time on their cell phones, tablets, and computers.  Sadly, many people spend more time with their friends on Facebook than they do in person.  I witnessed a pretty messed up situation…

LIFE

It’s miserable outside: gray and wet.  It fits my melancholy mood perfectly.  There is part of me that wants to skip my workout today in exchange for hot soup and a movie.  Anxiety has drained my energy levels, but I know if I skip the work out I won’t be able to eat dinner without…

A Cure for Anxiety

Fellow anxiety sufferers, have I got some good news for you.  I was given the answer to all of my problems last night, and I need to pass it along.  Hang on to your seats guys cause this is a good one.  It’s going to change your life.  Are you ready? Last night  I sat…

Pushing My Anxiety Buttons

  11:20 a.m. text from my realtor:  5pm showing request for today.  Can you make it work? NO — No, I can’t make that work, but I guess I will have to try.  I have a 24hr request rule for showings on my place because I have a small dog that resides in my house…

Money Sucks

  Life is one big money pit.  If there is one thing I wish that we could do without, it would be money.  It is one of the leading causes for my anxiety, and this morning it strikes again.  This time in the form of a dead car. My step-dad is on his way over…

Unsedated

When the night turns black and cats roam the streets, I will hide in the shadows, unsedated.  Their laughter gets louder hour by hour; liquid gold fuels their fire.  But I will watch from dark corners, unsedated.  Linked arm in arm they stagger down neon lit streets tripping on invisable obstacles.  My feet shuffle quietly…

Call Me Picky

  My friends call me picky, and maybe they’re right.  It’s entirely possible I’ve lost the ability to settle for anything less than exactly what I want.  I may be anxious, and I may get lonely at times, but I’m not built for settling.   After 2 weeks of tindering back and forth, I met…

Sheriff Pre-date Anxiety

Fourteen days ago, I matched with a sheriff on Tinder.  A tallish, tattoo’d, family loving sheriff.  At least that’s what I think I know about this man.  I’ve done my homework and checked his references, and so far so good.  He texts me “Good morning pretty lady” when I wake, and “Sleep well pretty lady”…

Uncertainty Feeds the Beast

Whenever I’m faced with a lot of uncertainty in life, my anxiety becomes almost too much to bare.  In fact, I don’t bare it; I just get busy.  Ever since I decided to put my place up for sale, I’ve made myself busy. I’ve busied myself at work and at home.  When I have down…

Splurges and Urges

Another day older and deeper in debt… day, year — whatever you want to call it.  I’m officially 42 years young as of 8:49 a.m. this morning.  All I want for my birthday is to receive an offer on my trailer for full asking price.  Too much to ask?  Na; think big or go home I…
