Why I love Yoga more than chocolate cupcakes?

“Sometimes it’s the smallest decision that can change your life forever” – Keri RussellLast Sunday, I went to the newly opened shopping mall, just in front of my house. It had some of the best collection of jumpsuits I had ever seen in all of my 25 years of life. I was super excited. It was the opening, so there were a lot of discounts like: “3 for price of 2”“50% off for the first purchase”“Buy now, get yearly discount”...more

Thank you to the moms for their prayers and support, in dealing with an impossible situation

I humbly came to my readers on yesterday, expressing concerns about dealing with an impossible baby daddy.  I genuinely asked for advice, and it came pouring in. I was contacted by women, men, divorce counselors and one Judge. They all told me that they did not see my post as an assault on my baby daddy character. They were able to read my concern with diligence and detect the sincerity that I had toward the issue. I asked them how to proceed with a bitter ex who won’t let go....more

When You Can't Find Your Attitude of Gratitude...

 I'm a fan of smiles and sunshine, but who says we have to pretend all is well when life gives you lemons? If you ask me, it's better to make your sour face than to fake what you're feeling. Although nobody likes a whiner, being authentic requires honesty, and the payoff for being real is big. So what exactly do we gain when we refrain from saying we're fine and tell our close friends and family  life sucks instead? ...more

Keeping it real

Today is my first 'weigh in' day.  After two days of 'loading' (eating lots of high fat foods) I woke up yesterday feeling less than prime.  I weighed myself - 191.8 lbs (a full 1.8 lbs heavier than when I did my first blog proving the loading really does just that - load) - and decided coffee was not going to be my friend.  Cuz then I would want toast.  Toast was not on the list.  It also wasn't on the menu as I had deliberately not bought any....more

Fibro: A year later

What would I do if the pain was gone?            It has been over a year since I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Previous to that, I had always just been “unstable.” One day I stopped taking all of the psych meds…and the crazy, for a while at least, disappeared. No depression. No anxiety.  There was new hope. It was like I was given a second chance as a completely different person….and then the pain started....more

Under The Skin: My experience with dermatillomania

When we talk about depression, anxiety and other mood disorders, we often mention signs and symptoms such as low mood, decreased appetite, withdrawal from social situations and fatigue. Aside from the more well-recognised side effects of mental illness, there are plenty of related conditions that are rarely mentioned. Mental health is a complex thing, and one persons depression will be very different from the next person. Each of us sufferers has their own brand of issues, symptoms and comorbidities....more

A Breastfeeding Mother's Fear: Will My Baby Fail The Weight Check?

Butterflies in my stomach, inability to sleep.  Hope that I would make the grade, nerves that I would not. Anxiety about being blamed for something I was ignorant about. Trepidation about being judged, eager for praise, terrified of being reprimanded. Did the baby gain enough weight? Did the baby gain enough weight? I study the nurse’s face as she places him on the scale.  I see a flicker of concern in her eyes. I think, “The weight is bad.” How the hell am I supposed to know how much the baby is supposed to weigh?...more
