I tried…

I was hoping I was on the upswing but that didn't last long. I was right back in my room that evening, feeling overwhelmed and weepy.  I'm back to feeling like crap and crying once again in a stupid diabetes education class. Just doing a meal planning exercise, with calorie and carb counting, overwhelmed me... Continue Reading →

Depressed and Overwhelmed

I've had a really bad couple of weeks but I think I'm on the upswing now. Depression was sucking the life out of me and everything, I mean everything, was overwhelming me. Monday was my first class of a 4 week series on diabetes education. I kept tearing up through the entire class. When the... Continue Reading →

Your Recovery is Your Recovery

Something popped into my mind a little while ago and for some reason I can't get it out. So, I figured it was the perfect topic for a blog post. I think it's because I have so many friends struggling with issues, healing and recovery that I wish I could just make it all go... Continue Reading →

I have a decision to make…

A funny thing happened on the way to the office today...Nah, I just really wanted to say that, but something interesting did happen and it is giving me the opportunity to stretch myself and test myself in several areas. As always, a little history is needed to give you the full picture so please bear with me....

A Thought Provoking Question From Lucy

Yesterday, my best friend Lucy and I took a trip to San Francisco's Golden Gate Park to visit the Japanese Tea Gardens. I can't even begin to tell you about the wonderful adventures we had. We laughed so much and so hard, others probably thought we were drunk or on drugs...especially on the paddle boat!... Continue Reading →

Are You Ready for a Challenge?

Insignificant. Alone. Broken. Abandoned. Insecure. Afraid. Worthless. Crazy. Pathetic. Ugly. Unlovable. Stupid... These words, along with countless others, are how I use to feel about myself. They screamed in my head and lived in my heart. I believed them with every ounce of my being. It seemed that if I already believed these things then... Continue Reading →

Day 2 ~ 3 Day Quote Challenge

This is a great quote from the movie, Bridemaids!  Too many times I was stuck in looking at the problems and everything that was going wrong in my life. Other people were not doing what I needed them to do to feel safe, secure and whole. Other people hurt me and used me. Even things... Continue Reading →

Knowing My “Place”

Whoooo wheeeee...am I on a roll about this one! Let's see, how do I put it all into words. Oh I have plenty of words coming out of my mouth but writing about it is going to be a bit challenging...I think. We'll see. So in the course of dealing with my clients, there are... Continue Reading →

Just straight up rambling…

Sadness hit me this morning...but it will not keep me! I was on the phone with someone dear to me today and she is really struggling with her job. I get that. I've been there. Over the last month, I have done what I could to encourage her. I have done what I am capable... Continue Reading →

Being Real

Several months ago I created a post with extremely foul language, filled with anger and hatred. A couple of months later, I took that post down because I didn't want to offend anyone and I also did not want people to think I was just some trashy, foul-mouthed lunatic, if that were the only post...

Off to a GREAT start!

I anticipate 2015 to be a really good year for me and those I love. I have that endless hope that things will get better, finances will improve, relationships will grow, and life will not be so turbulent. I know, I know...this is probably not the reality but a girl can hope, right? It doesn't... Continue Reading →
