Last night I was talking to my bestie and he was telling me how disgusting his body is on pretty much every level. He wasn’t doing a little complain session about the 5 pounds he put on or the little changes from age that we all occasionally bitch about. No, deep down he really sees himself this way. It breaks my heart knowing that’s what … Continue reading I Wish You Saw What I See
Being pretty is one of those things I really enjoy. I’m a flirt and an attention whore. So the last month and half has been really hard on me! I had an injection of a new asthma medication on November 18th which caused me to immediately break out in eczema all over my FACE!!! It’s been a bit better and a lot worse, but it … Continue reading Frustrated Vanity
1. For you happy life = ? + ? + ? The key to a happy life for me is being free to be myself. I spent most of my life trying to be the person everyone else wanted me to be. I was anything but true to myself. It’s that simple…. do me without care to what others think. 2. How confident are you … Continue reading T.M.I. Tuesday

Yes, I’m sexy and I know it!!! … Continue reading Mean Fat Girls
Real life with bipolar disorder isn’t quite like you see in the movies and on TV. It can, but mostly not. For those of us who are medication compliant, those wild mood swings are tampered down making it easier for everyone around us, but most importantly us! I’ve always been affected by the change of the seasons quite dramatically. The hardest for me are always … Continue reading Real Life with Bipolar Disorder
I have prided myself on losing 120 pounds and maintaining it for about 10 years now. I spent almost all of my life being grossly obese and having little to no body related self-esteem. I had an eating disorder that started at the tender age of 11 which spanned into my 40s. In the last year I’ve gained 10 pounds. I get it off and … Continue reading Battle of the gluten bulge
Does working and having a career give your life meaning? This is not a rhetorical question. In all sincerity, does working make life worthwhile? Does it mean that you are worth more because you work outside the home? Are you more valuable because you’re able to work? Is a person who does not work, for whatever reason, less valuable? Is their life lacking meaning? I … Continue reading Does being a housewife make me less worthwhile? No!
