SB4MH – Boundaries

Content Warning – Fatshaming, Doctor’s Office. I really have only one major boundary, and that is to not talk about my weight or anything to do with weight. I am getting better about it, especially when I am the one to bring it up, but it is still a very sensitive topic for me. This post is about my struggles with doctors and the outside world. Back in December, I… Read More »SB4MH – Boundaries

Anger and Toxic People

Day 31, post 30 – Well, I made it through all 30 (plus 1) days, and all 30 posts. This post will combine this week’s and last weeks SB4MH, since time escaped me and I missed the link up.

What is the Worst That Can Happen?

Day 22, post 22 – A not so sexy post, but it is quite positive. So maybe that’s sexy in itself. A week and a half ago my supervisor asked me what I was afraid of.

All week I have thought… Read More »What is the Worst That Can Happen?

Wicked Wednesday – Time

Day 3, Post 3 – I have decided to pick up this challenge again, as it will get me back in the routine of writing again. Time is a funny thing. As a kid, time would always move so slow. Things that I wanted to end faster (like the school day) took forever. When I got my first job, the more I looked at the clock, the slower the shift… Read More »Wicked Wednesday – Time

Great News!

Hello! It has been far too long since my last post. I promise, it was not intentional. Speaking of my last post, I believe I mentioned I had some good news. Are you ready? I got a new job! Ironically, it is the same title as the one I expressed interest in at my last place of work when it opened up (and was told I didn’t qualify and they… Read More »Great News!

Staycation

I finally have a bit of a vacation from work. I had some paid time off I needed to use or lose, so I asked for an extended {4 day) weekend. I feel a tad guilty about taking time off, but I need the mental break. In a way, I feel like I am cheating on my job by using my time off to look for a new job. I… Read More »Staycation
