Going through one of the worst times in my 50+ year life, and that’s saying a lot! Let me tell you random internet person, it’s been hell. 2020 was not too bad, until the end for me, and the first of this year has been worse. Read more

Also for anyone else in recovery for substances, if you had a slip, don’t beat yourself up too much. Just reach out as soon as you can and find a meeting, SMART meetings are more my style if AA doesn’t speak to you :)

He and grandma have always been on top of their health, and have even gone so far as to get physicals every six months in their older age.

A lot of the listed signs could be summarized as “changes in decision making.” That might be a decreased ability to think critically (falling for scams, etc.), making decisions that are wildly out of character, or failing to take “the obvious” into account.

If/when you do get confirmation that a family member is has dementia, resist the urge to kick yourself for not recognizing the signs sooner. With a few exceptions (e.g. catastrophic events such a stroke or traumatic brain injury), cognitive/psychological decline is a gradual process, and you will be able to look back Read more

I have a larger canister model (with several attachments) that has been literally a lifesaver for me. It cleans without chemicals and is easy to use. For seven years, I’ve cleaned painted walls, floors, ceilings, mattresses/pillows, clothing, upholstery, windows, kitchen and bathroom fixtures. It is used in every room Read more

I need to have something playing at night or I can’t sleep. So I have a few playlists I cycle through. Mostly stuff I don’t need to really look at or pay attention to because I’ve seen them a million times already.
