We're about... 2.5ish months into recovery from the latest psychotic break. Although, that word has so many connotations as to render it relatively meaningless if you think about it. But there was a question in the Psychosis Recovery group that made me think, and I thought I may as well share my thoughts. How do... Continue Reading →
You have some of your Yang in my Yin
“It’s good that he is quiet, because that means he is thinking. When smart people aren’t ruled or overpowered by their emotions, they can think, and they can solve the problem. That’s a good thing, unless you’re the problem.” While he’s thinking, she’s remembering. When they’re raging, the problems that “can’t be solved” multiply. Inspired... Continue Reading →
On Gods and Grandma’s

Happy Saturday!! What's everyone got going this weekend? I am kid-less this weekend! One of my friends started doing aerial yoga a couple weeks ago. She talked me into going with her last night. I booked the class on Thursday morning before I could talk myself out of it, and I spent the next 24+... Continue Reading →
