  This would be part of my solution to what we’ll do if and when Obamacare fails. Financially, it looks as if the numbers will not work as Obamacare gets implemented.   Most people want to be able to go to the doctor of their choice and get treatment when they want it. They also don’t...

They all look the same to me. The nurse arrived with her little cup of medication and the inquiry began. Scrutinizing each pill under the microscope of his hands the nurse patiently explained what for. Satisfied, he tossed them all into his mouth in one go.   Today was a good day to visit. Dad...

(My apologies to my readers for the length of this blog. It is an excerpt from my memoir, I Never Heard A Robin Sing, and documents what I wrote in my journal regarding my plan to escape my abuser.  It will be followed next week by excerpts showing what happened after I left the shelter) Day...

Unless you have attempted it yourself there is little hope of understanding suicide. Most think it is a major cop out, someone who lacks the courage to face battles that assail them. Even if you know what those battles are it is still hard to contemplate anyone taking such a drastic measure. After...

Hey, everyone, long time, no see.  I don't think I've ever taken a one-week break from this blog since I started it, never mind two weeks!  No excuse for not at least publishing a couple of entries, for God's sake, but I have to admit that the following things happened in a three-day...

“1997:   I don’t want to be normal, because I’m not sure what normal is, but I know being an active drug addict is not what I want or need. If I put half the energy I use to get high into going to school, I might be able to graduate.”   What a crazy year 1997 was, in every possible way. In my...

I could be a much better mom to Jack. I’m aware of this, and while I don’t like it, I think it’s something I need to admit. He deserves for me to continue working toward being a better parent to him, and I’m doing it. Bipolar disorder complicates every aspect of my life. I don’t have stable moods...

My husband and I are on a road trip with our motor home.  Along the way we’ve experienced good news and bad. Our initial stop was Petersburg, Nebraska, population 380, for my 50th class reunion. The first few days storms raged every night. The sound of thunder and the pelting of rain on our motor...

It's okay for me to say 'nut case' because I am one. I have the paperwork to prove it. Just last week an otherwise very nice alternative healer tried to convince me that I was just sensitive, a healer, and not 'really' mentally ill. I suppose I appreciate the effort. People don't tend to understand...
