My Favorite Things: #1 Caffé

I read somewhere recently that if you want to find your true calling, you need to identify what you love in life.  Sounds easy, but when I sat down with paper and pen, I could only think of family, friends, exercise, and my dog.  It took me some time to think past the obvious loves…

Money, Love, and Gum

There are three main things in my life right now that I am focusing on: Money, Love, and Gum.  The first, and most important, is money.  I have a love/hate relationship with the dollar bills, and it is the number one trigger for my anxiety.  There never seems to be enough of it for one….

DOOM — An Unfamiliar World

An overwelming sense of impending doom — a fine characteristic of generalized anxiety disorder, and one that I have been plagued with as of late.   More specifically, I’ve had this feeling ever since I tore my calf two months ago. I remember the feeling entering my body the very second the injury took place….

Let There Be Wine – A Poem From The Vine, by Ms. SG41

Here we’ve come to another weeks’ end, and I for one, could not be more pleased.  Some weeks fly by, and I feel a sense of purpose.   Others, such as this week, drag like a fishing line stuck in the mud.  I felt meloncoly all week, but my mood has elavated some today.  It’s…

Adding a Healthy Dose of Nerves to My Anxiety

Have you ever wondered what it is like in the mind of another person.  Maybe you are watching someone as they talk to you, and you think to yourself, “what’s going on in their head?”  I do this all the time.  It actually bothers me that I will never know what it is like to…

For a Travelling Gipsy I’m Not

Easter Monday in Canada is not considered a stat holiday unless you work for the government or a bank.  However, a large majority of people book the day off as a personal holiday.  I, of course, did not.  I only get two weeks vacation, so I save my days for when I’ve reached maximum burn…

Long Weekend Mind Trip

I feel like a literary slug right now.  I want to write and be creative, but my brain has other ideas for me.  My brain is adjusting yet another medication dosage increase, so it’s struggling to function as it should.  I’m guessing it will be a few days before the fog and spaced out feeling…

The Good, The Bad, and THE Half Full Glass

“Keep looking up; that’s the secret of life.” – Snoopy It is not below me to take life advice from a dog.  Dogs are smart, and they seem to know the secret to a happy life — I know my dog has it figured out.  She sleeps, exercises, plays, cuddles, and eats whenever her little…

Monday Madday

Mondays are like Fridays, just not as good. On a short work week, however, Mondays are much much better.   I’m not a Monday hater; there’s no reason to hate a day I get to be alive.  I just prefer Fridays.  Friday sounds better, and usually people are in much better moods over all.  THIS…

My Warrior Song

Keep up with my Friday tradition of RHYME TIME!   One, two, three, four; I hear a knocking at the door. I close my eyes; breathe in, breath out; For I know what’s lurking all about. Just beyond the dark still night; An anxious thought hides out of sight. It waits for when my guard is down;…

Cause I am WHO I am

  Playing grown up in a make belief world — that’s what life feels like to me.  Everyday I wonder when someone is going to find me out.  Realize that I have no idea what I am doing.  Is this a side effect of my anxiety, or is it normal to feel this way? On…

Too Busy For Myself

  It’s been a few days since I’ve had time to sit and write anything.  Work is crazy right now, and I’m still adjusting to my new anti-anxiety medication.  I’ve got 30 minutes right now to try and bang out a quick blog post — so forgive me for the lack of interesting content. So…
