Moving into my new digs I found ancient pictures of both my nieces on Santa’s knee.  What must it be like to believe in Santa? Never did I think at 75 I’d be asking Santa for anything. My forty one year marriage ended  when my husband phoned to say he wasn’t coming home but planned to...

A word to the wise: If you're plagued by panic attacks or other psychological woes, you might want to make sure your treatment doesn't involve time-outs by your therapist. Silly me. I didn't think to ask. Twenty years ago, I sought help from someone in the San Francisco area affiliated with a...

This is a photo of me at Kansas State University in August 1998. It’s from the time that this entry is about, at least the part where I’m away at college and not smoking crack. You can’t see the 4 eyebrow piercings, but they’re there. I’m in my dorm room and excited to start a new life. Too bad it...

I’ve already written on here about contacting Walt, my old doctor, about the book because I wanted him to know about it. I’ve contacted nearly everyone whom I want to know about the book’s existence, and if I haven’t, it’s because there’s something holding me back. I think I’ve made the decision...
