Woah, We’re Halfway There

Last week I passed the halfway point in my NeuroStar transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) treatment, so I thought I’d give you an update. I’ve noticed improvement in how I feel, my energy level, and my ability to focus. For example, before I began treatment, I’d make sure I did all my pet chores (feed, walk … Continue reading

A Toast

I was heartened and yet saddened by the number of people who have reached out to me since my last blog post. Many reached out privately. While I respect your reasons for doing so, I couldn’t help but rage that we still suffer alone and silently while abusive people go on with their lives. I … Continue reading

Down and Dirty (and Uncomfortable for Some)

No, I didn’t go out on New Years Eve. I sat home alone and went to bed around 10pm. No one wanted to spend the evening with me. So now this is my cover photo on Facebook: And why shouldn’t it be? It’s what my brain has been telling me all week. Yes, Jen, YOU … Continue reading

All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go

I knew when I started ugly crying in the shower this morning that this week is going to be really bad. I put up a Tinder profile before Thanksgiving looking for a date for New Year’s Eve. Here we are three days out and I have no date. So what? I was alone for Thanksgiving. … Continue reading

Online Dating App Blues

I’m back on the online dating scene. This time I’m trying Match dot com. To say I’m disappointed in the site is an understatement. While at first I was thrilled to see more local men on the site, I soon learned it was because many of them are fake accounts. You know, like this one. … Continue reading

After My Dog Died…

It’s been two days since Buddy died. Wednesday I was in shock. My Fitbit notified me I walked 10,000 steps that day, and almost all of them were from walking around here not knowing what to do. Thursday was a fog. I worked my regular job and even delivered some groceries, mostly to keep myself … Continue reading

Requiem for the Goodest Dog

As I write this I’m sitting on the sofa. Normally Buddy would be lying beside me with his head touching my thigh. But Buddy died today. It’s crazy. We were just at the vet yesterday having a growth on his tail checked out. The vet who saw him said it was no big deal. Buddy … Continue reading
