I Lost 31 Facebook Friends Today Because I Posted About My Anxiety Disorder

By "lost" I mean that I gave them the boot. They were all family. My husband's family, to be specific. I have an anxiety disorder. It's mostly hormonal at this point, but the more I deal with it the more I realize it's also situational. Situational in the sense that I feel a huge conflict… Continue reading I Lost 31 Facebook Friends Today Because I Posted About My Anxiety Disorder

We Interrupt Our Regular STFU Programming For a Burp

Holy Mother of all that is good, this was by far the crappiest, most horrible and heinous week I've had in a long time. Don't get me wrong, my life usually blows a big one. And I mean bigger than an elephant's schlong, or that World's Biggest Thermometer out in the Mohave Desert. This one… Continue reading We Interrupt Our Regular STFU Programming For a Burp

People I Am Jealous Of

I really do have a list of people that I am legitimately jealous of. I never used to get jealous, but now I do. This isn't like a psycho, jealous girlfriend, though, who gets all crazy and shit when her man even looks the opposite way. It's much different than that; in fact, I wish… Continue reading People I Am Jealous Of
