Minneapolis

This was my home. This is where I lived... This is what a protest looks like I've been told... This is justice for George Floyd I've been told. I've been told, supposedly schooled, even screamed at. But. I don't see justice. I know what I see. THIS is not justice. I wonder what you will... Continue Reading →

The Opioid Crisis? A Lie. Suicide Due to a Lack of Pain Management? Very Real.

All of the following information is available on many sites on the internet. The National Health Association, the World Wide Health Organization, the CDC, and etc. You should just google suicide rates. I knew as medication was withheld, my people would choose not to live. It is happening! We are losing our chronically ill brothers... Continue Reading →

I’m Stuck

I don't know how this post is going to turn out, but here it goes. Maybe if I write it down, I'll figure it out. I'm stuck! And I need to get unstuck. We are once again planning on putting our house on the market, and we have so much to pack I don't know... Continue Reading →

My Apologies

I wrote a post about a night in my life recently where I made a decision that could've had dire consequences. I took that post down. The responses in the comments were very emotional. From fear based to downright anger with many passionate requests for me to seek some additional help, counseling, resources, etcetera. I... Continue Reading →

The Heart Remembers What the Head Fights to Forget…

I know it was at some point this week, 15 years ago... I was searching for a flight. (ANY FLIGHT!!!) A flight from Minneapolis to the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas. My mother had called me; Kory, my brother, was shipped stateside. He was active USA Army, stationed in South Korea, (incidentally... Continue Reading →

I Almost Lost.

As I sit here, this morning, I need to write about something that makes me feel weak. This results in a feeling of embarrassment and shame. But neither of these feelings are mine to own. What I just went through is a fact of depression, not the exception. While this is still fresh in my... Continue Reading →

I Just Might Break

Today I am beginning this post with the hope of answering my own question. I believe I am struggling with coping. I don't know if it is the heat? The barometer? My medication? Or is it the overwhelming feeling of dread waiting for my body to flare once again. It is basically a fact with... Continue Reading →

Before I tripped Over a Stone, Fridays, #15

Getting ready to go back to college! I had been to college for a year back in 1986, but I was unsure what I wanted to major in. So I took some time off to work. After four years of working in clinical settings, I knew my best bet was to major in social work,... Continue Reading →

Ample Make this Bed.

I am reposting this in honor of my special "cheeky monkey" who passed away in 2017. Every holiday you are missed and now we remember you on your birthday ...the first one without you. Ample Make this Bed by Emily Dickinson is by far one of my favorite poems. Maybe it had such a big... Continue Reading →
