All good things come to an end, and I've realized it's time to close the doors on my blog. I want to thank everyone, particularly Fairy at Organised Castle , Megyn S., EcoCatLady , Cindy at Growing Her Worth and Nicola B. for your support and readership ove...

A week on a locked psych ward
This post has been a long time coming. I realized that I haven't posted in ages but I want to get back to writing. This seemed a good place to start, because a few folks were curious.  Back in the summer of 2014 (a long time ago, now!), I voluntarily commit...

Fat and happy, or skinny and depressed?
It's a choice I'm worried I'm going to have to make. Trigger warning for eating disorder behavior and weight discussion. I've been on 14 medications since I started treatment back in 2011. Each one has had some major problem: two gave me violent tremors, on...

Net worth update: Month 1
This month was my first month of recording my finances. I've been separating myself financially since we split in April and it's taken me a while to get back on my feet. My goal for this month was to build up my emergency fund. This took priority over debt ...

He's back, and so is the budget
The good news... The Chief Engineer came back. I won't go into personal details but the couples I know who separated and came back together are quite a bit stronger than they were before. Yes, it was very painful. But I knuckled up, took better care of myse...
