I don't know when I ran out of my antidepressant. I'm guessing it was within a day or two of when I noticed, but I can't be sure. I think what I noticed first is that my body hurt. Part of the reason I take Cymbalta is to help with the pain of fibromyalgia. But, I was also a lot more
There is absolutely no part of me that wants to go back to middle school or back to high school. I'm still awkward as fuck now, so you can imagine what it was like for me back then. I got made fun of for reasons I still don't understand. Especially in middle school, I was a pretty
I used to describe Mr. Lyndsy as my anchor. Recently though I've been giving some thought to that term. I never meant it negatively. At the time, I was pretty fucking lost in my head. This was before I finally got on antidepressants and had anti-anxiety meds for the bad episodes.
As you know, I've been doing a writing prompt per day in order to get my creative juices flowing. I was telling a friend how excited I am that I'd finally found some flow in the writing. I was describing the four I'd written since my hands started flying over the keyboard again and
The last time I attempted any creative writing was November 2014 for National Novel Writing Month. I didn't "win" NaNo that year. I got 20,000 words in and quit. I'm not sure why I wasn't writing after that. I know that depression was a factor starting maybe in late 2015 or early
I don't know how it is that I ended up coming across them, but a week or so ago, I ended up staring at an email from my abusive, piece of shit, ex-boyfriend. Which then reminded me that there were a whole slew of them still in Gmail.
I have no idea why I still have them.
LuLaRoe is currently facing a number of class action lawsuits. Let's chat about what this means.
First off, what is a class action lawsuit?
A typical lawsuit involve individuals harmed by someone's actions (plaintiff) against the people or entities who caused the harm (defendants).
As the controversy swirls around LuLaRoe backing an insensitive and unapologetic Retailer continues, I would like to take a minute and remember that the Retailers and LuLaRoe are two separate things.
Yes, there are Retailers who have absolutely no problem with what Bobby Budenbender
Direct sales giant LuLaRoe has been under fire for a little while now. Several lawsuits have been filed against the company - misleading contractors about the opportunity (amount of work required), overcharging sales tax, misclassification of contractors (should be employees), and
Be prepared for something amazing but creepy.
This is amazing artistry. My grandmother used to create ceramic dolls and I thought hers were so realistic, but these take it to a completely different level.
Not even 2 minutes into the video I thought, “Man, I wish I could do things like this. I’m just not an artist.”
You may have had a similar thought when you saw it.
I’m going to stop you before that train of thought gets too far out of the station. These thoughts are the kind that get us into trouble and make us feel poorly about ourselves. Instead of being able to just appreciate Michael Zajkov’s amazing skills, we turn his skill against us. We focus on what we can’t do.
I am confident that we have skills that Mr. Zajkov doesn’t. That’s not a slight against him in any way. No one person is gifted to do all the things. That’s why we all matter so much. Each of us brings something different to the table. The world needs all of us with our own individual gifts to become a more amazing place.
The video should remind us not of the things we don’t or feel we “can’t” do, but push us to excel at the things we do well. It should give us pause to examine our lives to find our own greatness. Once we see it, we can reach deep inside to surpass limits we’ve imposed on ourselves.
But the first step is to stop comparing ourselves to others.
