By the time I was 34, I had lost 2 great grandparents, a grandmother, an uncle, and a best friend. The most profound loss was my best friend. I went to chemo with her, sat in her apartment doing nothing because it was all she could manage, rushed to the hospital to see her each time she was admitted, was in her ICU… Read more
Chadwick Boseman is hitting me so hard. I lost my mom earlier this year to a rare colorectal cancer (appendix...it’s what Stuart Scott had). He was such a talent and wonderful person behind it all. Knowing what I know about treatment, he’s a damn miracle doing all he did in the last 4 years of his life. Read more
I thought Chrissy Tiegen said in the past they could only get pregnant through IVF because of fertility issues. But then also, I have two anecdotal stories about people who had fertility issues and then had subsequent pregnancies with no issues getting knocked up the old fashioned way. So who knows? Also, it’s just… Read more
He gave up his exec status because he became talent. He said he didn’t have time for both.
Kathryn had built up so much goodwill publicly because Thomas is so fucking awful, she was abused by him, and the custody shit was horrendous. Also when Patricia continued to support Thomas and shit on Kathryn, even when it was clear that Thomas was manipulative and using the kids to control her, that bolstered… Read more
My mom died a week ago tonight. She was full of wisdom and sage advice that was stolen from her as she died slowly from cancer. The path forward is uncertain and unfathomable, but I hope I can remember all she taught me and pass on all the advice and truths she bestowed upon my sisters and me to our kids.
The Trump address was unsettling, but I didn’t hate everything he said in between his bloviating. But I still don’t think it’s drastic enough. Between the squinting and him sounding, hoarse (?), I’m glad it was blessedly short. Read more
Shower sex is such a lie, unless they built a shower meant for sex. But still, you need lube because water is going to wash away anything your body creates naturally. Anyway, I still stand by the fact that they’re sexless robots. Read more
I have no idea why this show took off unlike other shows, but I will say that it was the best escape for me and my sisters to talk about and make fun of in our group chat. We’re going through a terrible time with some heavy shit, so while it may have been bad reality TV, it was the best escape for us to have something… Read more
Watch the show and dear god, skip the reunion.
My mom is also a cancer patient (in maintenance, not curable) and the album came out when we got the news that it was back. I’ve only listened to “Soon You’ll Get Better” once because I can’t take it. I also got super upset when the news came out a couple weeks ago about Taylor’s mom having a brain tumor, because I… Read more
It’s a closed, hospital-grade system, so all you need are your flanges and bottles to hold the milk. There is no way for milk to get into the pump and cross contaminate with another person’s milk.
I’m sorry for your loss. My MIL died suddenly and the week after is still such a blur in my mind. We had her service and burial the day before Thanksgiving that year. Really that whole year after, especially the holiday season, is now quite far away, but fresh in my mind at the same time. Any time I learn of a sudden… Read more
Truth and Lies: Jeffrey Epstein is the only one that is currently releasing new episodes that I’ve listened to and I also feel like they got the most people to talk to them. I believe it’s produced by ABC news, so they have the clout. Read more
