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 →

Letter to a Puke

This post expresses extremely foul language but it is the truth of where I am tonight - please do not read if it will offend you... I'm so angry tonight!

Oh this sucks!

I will forever be codependent. There is no cure. It is not something I can take a pill for or watch my diet or exercise. The only way to keep it at bay, is to put into practice what I have learned over the years and know that tomorrow will be a better day. As codependents,... Continue Reading →
