Life and Death and Life Again
The death of my mother two days before Christmas has left me with much to say but no real way to say it. I meant what I said when I said I wasn't going to grieve much when she went. It was time for her to go and we knew it was coming. Still, the circumstanc...

That's Just Mom
Mental illness is difficult to understand. I understand that I am who I have always been. I understand that as I get older, my physical body changes and sometimes that affects my ability to deal with the mental illness. I understand that circumstances don't...

Falling Leaves
Falling leaves She stares out the window, the glass protecting her from the ebb and flow of the wind as it knocks the leaves from the trees. It swirls them around, like her life, moved by an invisible force that isn't good or bad, it just is.  Her mind isn'...

New Diagnosis, Same Old Life
The past two weeks have been nothing short of horrendous, and I have hesitated to describe here the things I've been going through simply because I'm still in shock.  It's not that I'm incapable, it's that suddenly it's all gotten very scary for me. I've be...

Stories of Childhood, Part 2
My first memory is of being dressed in plaid, standing next to my little brother and in front of my older sister having my photo taken. I think I remember it because I've seen the photos. I was about three or four. My next memory is of sitting at the kitche...

Stories of Childhood
I realize it's been over a year.  I got a job, found a place to live, found a church where I'm feeling more and more comfortable; I've also been seeing someone special for a few weeks. I have not, however, had any good medications for about two months. I'm ...

My Life Got Too Noisy
Being Mentally Ill   is not even as fun as it sounds. "What?" you say. Yes, it's true. All these years of suspecting the worst and lo and behold, I find out just how much God loves me even if I am bipolar. The OCD, the ADHD, the ups-and-downs of depression ...

I Miss Homeschooling
Some of you may know that I had to empty out my storage unit a couple of months ago. It wasn't easy - I ended up losing my furniture and throwing away or giving away a lot of things. But there were boxes of papers leftover from homeschooling my kids back in...
