Impulsivity

Until two days ago, I didn't even know this was a real word, much less that I was experiencing it daily. Impulsivity is how they describe the symptom of struggling with impulse control. It's almost a disconnect between the part of the brain that tells you to do something and the part of the brain … Continue reading Impulsivity

Community

I live in a community. That's an actual thing, not just a state of mind. Actually, it's both, but let's not argue. I grew up in a decent sized town in Tennessee. It's more of a city now, but when I was there it wasn't quite as large. I never understood community outside of my … Continue reading Community

Sweet Freedom

Our family has lived through a weird five years. Some of it I've shared with you and some I'm still working up to sharing. All of this means every year by August, I am out of sick days and halfway through my vacation days. And I never, ever roll anything into the new year. I … Continue reading Sweet Freedom

This Day, Take 2

Today was not my day. No amount of Spearmint and Stress Away could save this day. It's Monday, so that speaks for itself.

Both run off the internet, … Continue reading This Day, Take 2

So you've been warned. If you are one of those fortunate people who go to a doctor with a problem and … Continue reading Welcome to the Unknown

It Is Well

It really isn't. If I'm honest with you and myself, it just isn't. I would love to give you some really impressive motivational speech. But I can't, because I'm not feeling it either. Have you ever wanted something so badly and for so long that it consumes you? I have. In my teenage years I … Continue reading It Is Well

This day, y’all

Some days are better than others, know what I mean? It's not that today was a bad day, per se, it's just blah. I don't want to be where I am all day doing what I'm doing... today at least. Most days I really like my job. I used to love it, but "like" is … Continue reading This day, y’all

Gloom, Despair & Agony on Me

Anybody remember Hee Haw?  Yeah, well, it was a few decades ago.  And maybe it was only in Tennessee.  Well anyway, I was not very old, but I remember watching it at my grandma's house.  If you ever saw the show, you recognize the title to this post.  This is a song that pops in … Continue reading Gloom, Despair & Agony on Me
