The Post-Kavanaugh, PTSD Experience

The Kavanaugh nomination has elicited in me a response that I did not at all expect: Terror. Welcome to the politically-generated mass triggering of survivors who are dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. For me it started during the hearing last Thursday, and has been a week of practicing every skill at my disposal to feel … Continue reading

It Has Been a Rough Week

It has been a rough week for survivors of sexual assault. Listening to those elected to serve us (and their minions) denounce Dr. Blasey has been infuriating and incredibly painful. Seeing the posts of those who support and spread such cruelty has also been painful. I’ve just decided to unfriend folks like that. Life is … Continue reading

What I’ve Learned From Yella’s Diete

Yella Fella’s diet is not going smoothly. You’d think it would be so simple: just give him less food. But no behavior change comes easy, even for a cat. Each morning at 5 am he sings me his Song of Despair until I get up and go downstairs to feed him. I must monitor feedings because … Continue reading

Believe What You Want, but Leave Me Out of It

Sunday I attended a church service with the rest of my family. Now let me start by saying I am an atheist, and while I was raised in this church denomination, I have always taken issue with their teachings, even when I did consider the possibility of God. The topic of the sermon was, Is … Continue reading

An SOS from Yella Fella

Yella Fella here calling out around the world for HELP!!! You see, that mean old vet doctor said I had to lose weight, and now I’m on a diet! Jen feeds me twice a day and watches me like a hawk during both meals so I don’t try to sneak off and eat somebody else’s … Continue reading

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
