Yella’s Diet- 3 Weeks In

Time for a dieting update! As you recall, Yella has been told by TWO different vets that he needs to lose weight. And while we had good intentions, his persistence and my depression meant no weight loss for Yella. But now that things are looking better for me, I decided it was time to tackle … Continue reading

I’m Getting Better. The Cats are Getting Worse.

I told you last April about Little Girl’s fearful behavior and Graybie’s aggressive behavior toward her.  Since taking her to the vet, I’ve tried Feliway diffusers and calming collars. I’ve bought interactive toys and engaged in play with the cats. I’ve given Little Girl time alone and fed her away from the others. Things got … Continue reading

Depression No More!

I met with my therapist this week and she made a shocking announcement to me: “You are no longer depressed.”  Wow! Really? I knew I’d been thinking that, but to have an objective observer who knows me well to say so is affirming. So what does a person who has suffered with depression for much … Continue reading

How’s Yella Doing?

I had no idea how difficult it would be to cut Yella to one meal per day as our vet recommended. I should have known better. After all, if it was going to be easy, I would have done it already. Yella is not happy and is pulling out all the stops to convince me … Continue reading

Imagine That! -a commentary

Facebook founder and uber-rich white boy Mark Zuckerburg has fought efforts to curtail harmful posts to his social media megasite. He didn’t care when a pizza restaurant was targeted as the supposed site where Hillary Clinton ran a child sex trafficking gang. He didn’t care when Sandy Hook was labeled a hoax and grieving family … Continue reading

Yella’s Vet Visit

This past weekend I felt a lump on the back of Yella’s neck. Today we went to see the vet. His ears were dirty and so he got them cleaned out and treated for yeast. He was not happy about that. He also got told he needed to lose a few pounds (where have we … Continue reading

When You’re Smiling, the Whole World Smiles With You

There is nothing more beautiful to me than a sincere smile. I’ll never forget a story my friend Lynn once told me of the most beautiful woman she’d ever met in her life. Lynn said that when she first met the woman, all she saw was a scarred and weathered old face, but then the … Continue reading

Seven Years Ago…

Seven years ago I started this blog. That’s the longest I’ve stuck with anything. I had hoped to monetize it to support my animal rescue habit. Things didn’t quite work out that way. Instead I found an avenue of expression that I enjoyed and was pretty good at, if I do say so myself. The best … Continue reading

Why Do I Keep Talking About Gun Violence? Good Question.

Saturday I went to a Pride/ Family Togetherness Rally. Everywhere I looked I saw the happy, smiling faces of people who were enjoying each other’s company while celebrating who they truly are. And I looked everywhere, too, because I was watching for people who appeared out of place. People like the 30-something white guy (a former … Continue reading

Walking Toward the Light

When wading hip-deep through the Swamp of Depression, I thought I was just hurting on the inside. Now that I’m exiting the swamp, I can see a panoramic view of my depression. This morning I saw a photo of me during a recent volunteer activity for a political candidate, and I saw my physical size … Continue reading
