Still here

I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth. I’m just…struggling to find words to fill the empty page/text box.

Trigger warning – self-harm discussed below. Fat is not a mental health diagnosis, as Ragen has so eloquently explained but, certainly, some of us fats struggle with depression. My blog seems to have been nothing but grey skies for the last few months, when I’ve bothered to write at all, not generally because I’ve been [...]

Wanted: One Three-Day Weekend

It’s been a hell of a week. I mean last week, obviously, since Sunday is widely opined to be the first day of the week, something I’ve never understood because, well, it’s the weekEND. Anyway. It’s been a hell of a post-Christmas, is what I should say. I was out sick from work the week [...]

Shopping for Doctors

So, a nasty cold/flu/whatever thing meant that I needed to call my doc today for an appointment to get checked out. After two hours of not hearing from her, I gave up and called the clinic my husband visited for the first time yesterday. One same-day appointment later, it really is just a virus, I [...]

My (do not want) To Do List

I’m not a procrastinator, most of the time. I’ll get things I don’t want to do and on those I may procrastinate for a while but I always get to them in the end. Knock on wood (a week and a half before the last paper of my MSLIS career), I have never turned in [...]

Present

It’s been a roller coaster here the last couple of weeks. Work changes and turmoil (don’t worry, no firings or anything, just lots and lots of change in the air) along with personal busy-ness and, probably, delightful female hormones have thrown me off quite a lot, but I’m doing okay. Mostly. Yesterday, on the way [...]

Familiar fragility

See, the thing about NOT being on hormonal birth control is that now I know, when a bad day pops up its hideous head and I start to realize that I’m caught in the incoming tide, that the sadness and nonsensicalness (yes, I know that’s not a word, right? right?) and lazy give-it-all-up-because-you-fail-at-life-ness is creeping [...]

Daydreaming

I’ve been struggling lately, in case my infrequent, depressed posts didn’t make that clear. It’s not that I’m perpetually unhappy; it’s that the black hole of despair seems to be so much closer than before and I have to work so hard not to get sucked in (yes, I have a therapist, although it’s been [...]
