The Swoosh of the Backslide

Did you hear it? It was so quiet one would scarcely notice. The "swoosh" of the backslide. My backslide. Not even I heard it. I was just there. I missed all the warning signs that I'm sure were posted all along the way. Do you know why? I missed them because I was too damn... Continue Reading →

Past Me & Future Me

Today I have a special guest post... Let me introduce my little sister, Melissa.

Busy Does Not Equal Healthy

I have joined a few groups for codependents on Facebook within the last week or so and I'm really not liking the vibe in them. LOL...
