Sorry for the premature publish! ....before moving into a more long-term place on the UWS. It’s Manhattan, so trying to find a place was insane, plus I was in my 20's and broke. I showed up to an open house (from a gym class, in the summer, so all sweaty off the subway and whatnot) to find maybe 20 other people there Read more

My ex was abusive. Punching, kicking, etc. When I mentioned the choking to my therapist her face froze—and she has a pretty good therapy face. It is the number 1 indicator that the abuser is going to kill you. I am lucky that I got out, though I still live in fear; this woman is lucky to be alive; this ‘man’ and Read more

I am in recovery, too! Every time I want a drink (usually about 1-100 times a day) I remember how much I do not want to be the person I was when I drank—wildly emotional, occasionally mean, completely not dependable. I also make a list of all the activities I love to do which I completely avoided because they interfere Read more

My vet told me that feeding a tiny bit of wet food every day was good because it’s hydrating and cats often don’t drink enough water. So I did: dry food out all day, and water, and then two little scoops of wet food in the am/pm. Until she got super sick and died, she was really healthy. But if his coat and bathroom Read more

My ex’s building had an apartment of Thunder Stompers (my phrase) right above his. On the weekends, starting around 6 am, two little kids RUNNING up and down the halls. It really pissed him off. (I don’t sleep a lot so I didn’t really care.) One morning I said: Do you remember when just running for no reason at all was Read more

Hot Ones on You Tube. It is seriously a show where celebrities/athletes/comics eat increasingly spicier wings (10 if they make it to the end). It is endlessly mesmerizing. It made me like John Mayer.

Wake Forest is beautiful! My vet suggested kid’s Benadryl before anything stronger, and that I try it at home just in case, and it was seriously awful. (For me—she was completely zonked: couldn’t walk, had no bodily function controls. Maybe it was like being high on really good weed?) Read more

My cat did not react well to meds for travelling; luckily my vet recommended I try them out at home before actually travelling (they can have heart attacks). She foamed at the mouth, lost control of her bladder, and fell off the (low) bed. NO way was I doing that again. Read more

Oh, my kitty died in February—humanely. Kidney failure. So I guess if I believed in the afterlife and I die soon and we share the same afterlife, then yes, I will see her soon? Read more

I don’t know how to gif (I am old) but my new go-to when I am having fun PTSD in the middle of the night: elephant videos.

It was National Pet Day yesterday and I am missing the F out of my cat. It’s also National Poetry Month, and I named her after a poem, so I am extra sad BUT have been reading a ton. Read more

This is anecdotal, but three days is usually when the rebound anxiety/withdrawal/real life kicks in for me. Read more
