Happy Monday. Have some galaxy cats:
I just bought a plane ticket to Vegas! This will be my first trip out there, I’m going with a group of 4 for my good friend’s 40th birthday this upcoming October. Any recommendations for things to do or see if you’ve been there? Restaurant recs would be especially awesome.
It’s really sudden. Her wife is in academia, and she got offered a job out of state at a university, so they have to go in 3 weeks. I know that’s how academic jobs work, but I’m really really bummed. I liked her a lot, and I feel like she “gets” me in away that other counselors I’ve seen have not. She was very…
I started my new job. It’s great, the people are wonderful, the benefits are incredible, and I’m terrified. Cut for talk about mental health stuff.
I’m making progress!
Hey-o. It’s me again. I know I haven’t been around a whole lot, save for occasional OTs, etc. Mainly because I’m wading through my I-turned-30-now-what crisis. Anyway, re: title of this post, my friend and I have started saying this when depression or anxiety rears its ugly head and we need to relate it to each other.…
Got my test results back from the doctor today. The good news is: I’m not anemic, I don’t have thyroid issues, my blood sugar is normal, my insulin is normalish (slightly elevated but not out of a healthy range but it could be stress) my progesterone is normal, my doctor isn’t suspecting PCOS, and my kidney and liver…
So as some of you may remember, my grandfather had heart surgery in January. He’s had a hard time recovering (he’s 85 years old just for reference) and I’m finding out that at least a portion of it is because he hasn’t been following the aftercare instructions.
So when I go to a certain grocery store in my town, I pass this place called “Vanilla Dental”, and every single time I think “if the alternative is Kinky Dental, I’d much prefer vanilla.” Although a vinyl or latex dental assisting uniform might be kind of fun.
Can we kick things off a bit early? Asking because I just made a frozen strawberry margarita.
Hey GT. This may be a long post, but I’m mostly just hoping to air things out by writing it down. Talk of depression, anxiety, trauma after the cut.
Hey GT. I’ve decided that I want out of Texas by the end of the year. It’s time, and going on vacation earlier in the month confirmed that. I’ve lived here all of my life, and I want a fresh start in a new state now that I have moved into my thirties. I want to move to Oregon or Washington.
Hey y’all! All systems are go for my trip to Portland, Oregon next week. I’m checking in to see if folks are still down for a GT meetup while I am there. I get in Monday night and leave mid afternoon on Friday. I was thinking cocktails one evening would be delightful, but I’m open to suggestions :)

Hey y’all! As mentioned previously, I’ll be on vacation in Portland from April 2nd until April 6th. A few GTers mentioned interest in doing a meetup while I’m there, so I’m making this post to discuss and gauge interest. I have a ticket to a comedy show on Thursday night (the 5th), but outside of that, my plans are…
I’m going to Portland in April! I’m so excited!
Has anyone here travelled alone? I just got my tax return and I desperately need a vacation. Most of my friends are teachers or broke students and can’t go anytime soon, but my best shot at taking time off is going to be March or April, so I’m considering taking a trip by myself.
Talk to me about smells.
I’ve got a deep bruise on my right shin from where I tripped and fell while wearing wedge boots this past Monday. I also re-injured it by banging it on an open cabinet drawer at work a few days later (I cried, it hurt so flipping bad). Good news: I can walk on it fine, I have full range of motion, and it doesn’t throb…
