Minimizing my anxiety and PTSD

Oh geez, you guys, I apologize. I still need to write up more posts about the trip to Sweden I had in July... I had so many things I wanted to document, but I just haven't had the time. Hopefully one day soon... But I've been dealing with nursing school the past three weeks, as… Continue reading Minimizing my anxiety and PTSD

Kate and Anthony… And Chester and Robin and Amy … And…

I wasn't going to write a post about Kate Spade. I don't have any particular connection to her fashion - that's not to say that I didn't like a lot of what I've seen of hers - but I don't think I even own one of her items. I didn't want to dwell on negative… Continue reading Kate and Anthony… And Chester and Robin and Amy … And…

RIP Amy

I'm taking a quick break from Reblogging Emma - nearly finished anyway - to make comment on something... I just saw this article regarding the lady that started the semi colon movement. She was a Wisconsinite whose influence reached around the world. I personally have at least 4 friends in Australia that received semi colon tattoos… Continue reading RIP Amy

I know I can make it through

Whatever it takes, I know I can make it through - I'd wager at least anyone much older than me probably won't get that reference. Hell half of you my age will likely not know it, unless you have teenage kids. Perhaps you'd recall the old school version: There's a way, if I look then… Continue reading I know I can make it through

The memory lingers on

I was walking through Target, minding my own business and noting that they had changed the organization of the store. AGAIN. Thinking to myself that they seem to do that more often than necessary and wondering if perhaps the manager just enjoys confusing his patrons. I passed by where the books used to be -… Continue reading The memory lingers on

Vollie-Dan got a tattoo!

  I just wanna say how proud I am of my boy, Vollie-Dan. He got this semi-colon tattoo while he is back up in Darwin for work. I told him it seemed very fitting for him; and it does. Continually, this boy amazes me. He is just growing so fast... *tear* I just want to… Continue reading Vollie-Dan got a tattoo!

22 a day – Happy Fucking New Years

**Trigger Warning: graphic content/Suicide Personally, i had a good New Years eve - the festivities were muted, but fun with friends around, a few drinks... it was nice. But not everyone had a good New Years... Besides the fact that there is a veteran suicide at the rate of approximately 22 a day, the suicide… Continue reading 22 a day – Happy Fucking New Years

Glad to know it was appreciated too - given comments and messages here and on FB.I will write a longer post here in a little while, but for now - the… Continue reading Wow, y’all

Please… Don’t [Commit Suicide]

I got an email today from a lady that requested that I share a video of her daughter on my blog. At first I wasn’t sure if it could possibly be spam, maybe it is, but I decided that it was a heartfelt written email. Noting the content it seemed appropriate that she had chosen… Continue reading Please… Don’t [Commit Suicide]

Here we go again. Another youth, another set of suicidal thoughts. This one reached out to a friend last night who in turn took her by the hand to speak to one of my Divisional Officers. This officer then escalated it to me.Unfortunately - or Fortunately depending on the way you look at it -… Continue reading Here we go again…
