Shits and Giggles

Yes, this is a post about poop.  Well, partly. I’ve never been exactly “regular.”  I’ll go days without pooping even without injecting myself full of hormones.  Constipation and I are not exactly friends, but we’re well acquainted. The past week has been above and beyond my normal discomfort.  After days and days of struggling (thanks […]

Mourning & Moping

Saturday 6:39 pm I haven’t brushed my teeth today.  I’m still in my pajamas.  I refuse to leave the house. I haven’t felt this way since my mom died.  The same raw, always-on-the-verge-of-tears feeling that set in immediately after hearing the news, even though I was half-expecting it, and didn’t leave for days.

But mentally?  Much better. I think Cristy had a point about the hormone crash (see comments).  At least, that’s what I’m telling myself […]

Scared Shitless for No Good Reason

Two things: Turns out, my biggest fear regarding international adoption (namely, that a child will be “placed for adoption” without his/her parents’ consent) isn’t just a problem in parts of the world where running water, electricity, and knowing where your next meal is going to come from are luxuries.  I saw this tonight, and I’m […]
