End of an Era

Assumption: You can't quit. Ever.

Knowing when to call it quits and bowing out gracefully is a valuable skill for navigating life. It's been a swell ride, but the time has come to close the book on Demystifying My Depression.

Being Human

Assumption: 'I don't know' is unacceptable.

The last few weeks have been umm... interesting for me. I've been a little quiet here as I've been working to get myself into a good place again.

Like before, I wasn't too far gone, but I was dealing with crankiness, irritation, rage, chronic fatigue, migraines, a severe outbreak of itchy hives (omg... so itchy, as I stop typing for a frantic scratching fit. Curse you, new shampoo with your allergy-inducing, I mean, natural extracts!), not being able to write a coherent set of thoughts for a blog article, bad dogs at work...

Ya know, the usual silliness we call life.

On My Terms

Assumption: Rejection is end-of-the-world, soul- + psyche-crushing.

I submitted an essay for a contest last week. I received a sorry-but-no email today. It would have been nice to move into the next round, but I'm not heart-broken over it. C'est la vie.

I don't know if you can fully appreciate how monumental that meh, should-shrugging, no-big-whoop reaction is for me. Apparently, I truly have become a perfectionist-in-remission. YIPEE!? Yahoo. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Ow-ow. Woohoo!

Simple(r) Kind of Life

Assumption: When you go NYC, you've got to go big or go home.

I'm thrilled to report that Life in Repair (#LIR2012), a mental health breakie, was a success! I'm feeling like myself again; much less irritable + less chronically fatigued.

So much to catch up on...

Life In Repair: Mental Health Breakie

Assumption: A slip is the inevitable precursor of a face-plant.

The last few weeks + this past week in particular has been intense + activity-filled. So much so, that I'm recognizing the early warning signs of imminent meltdown. Well... imminent if I attempt to power through.

LTD 2012: NYC 1/22-25

Assumption: If you're poor, you can't have ANY fun...
You especially can't go gallivanting around.

So, WTF is LTD2012?

A year ago I took a Living The Dream (LTD) tour of the east coast. I'm keeping the tradition alive with another pilgrimage to NYC, Sunday, 1/22 to Wednesday, 1/25.
