Family Day in Staying Connected

Yesterday was our first weekly “family day” since I lost my job and we decided to go to a Farmer’s Market in the morning and to our local aquarium in the afternoon. Overall, it was a pretty nice ...


Earlier this week I told my husband that I just want to feel lonely. I want to have an opportunity to miss people. I feel like everywhere I look there is concrete, and people. I feel trapped, tie...

Interim in Staying Connected

I’ve been trying to find the words to describe how I’ve been feeling these past few days. I feel a pretty great sense of dissatisfaction and uncertainty along with a mild but pervasive sense of ...


I got the official rejection letter from the first place I applied to. To be honest, I didn’t really mind for a few reasons. For one, it was my first time doing the weird automated interview, an...

Changes in Staying Connected

Let’s see. I have a few minor updates this afternoon. One, I finally got my hair cut. It feels much better, but I’m not a fan of how it looks. Hopefully once I wash it and let it air dry, it wil...


So far I have 12 clients on the schedule and one more I’m waiting to hear back from, and I will being seeing 9 per week (due to some every-other week clients). So that’s not too bad. Since this w...

Closing The Chapter in Staying Connected

Whew. This week has been a lot. Luckily, I think I’m coping pretty well. I worked all day yesterday and plan on working all day again today, and I’m only getting paid for one hour—because I’m on...

Wrench in Staying Connected

So… I pretty much lost my job today. Sigh. The first half of the day I went about my business as usual. I saw my first three clients, and then I went into my weekly two-hour Zoom meeting for gro...

Moving and Improving in Staying Connected

I’m having a really great day today. I’m finally starting to feel like I’m back on track. I think that time and therapy have both played major roles. It’s been really hot in California for the p...


Okay, so the first and least important thing I’ll mention this morning is that I’ve decided, and I’m going to schedule a haircut. I feel relieved already. Second, I had another productive therap...


Every Monday I spend the day with my daughter while my husband works. Yesterday, after I put my daughter down for a nap, I was feeling particularly anxious about all of the things that I knew in ...


Those of you who watched the video in my last entry know that yesterday, while I was working, my husband took my daughter to a family gathering on his father’s side against my wishes. I didn’t te...

Done in Staying Connected

Dude, I feel soooo unmotivated right now. It sucks. I feel like I need a vacation, like a real vacation away from the stressors of family. I need to get away. I just ordered myself a new pair of...

Mundane Morning in Staying Connected

I’m currently at the stage in my cycle where I feel like its impossible to keep my condo up to a basic standard of cleanliness. The other day I heard on the radio that millennials only clean thei...

Hardcore Momming in Staying Connected

I just added a butt ton of stuff to my daughter’s Amazon wish list, keeping in mind her new daily schedule. Today was my first day with my daughter and we stuck pretty close to the schedule. I’m ...

Pictures in Staying Connected

Hey. It’s Saturday night and I don’t have anything important I need to be doing, so I think I’m going to post this, take a shower, and then call it a night. I decided on a whim that I wanted to ...


So much to say, so little time. But the good news is that I got to sleep in until 8am today. Winning. The topic I’d like to write about (but sadly there’s no way I can cover it today) is one tha...


I stayed up about an hour past my bedtime last night, and then my daughter woke up thirty minutes before my alarm was supposed to go off. So I’m a little tired this morning. This week my app thi...

Scary Close in Staying Connected

I counted up my hours yesterday. I am currently fifty non-clinical hours away from having completed my three thousand hours, you guys. I almost started this entry talking about how I’m worried a...


Ooph. It’s been a bumpy morning for me. I’m SO GLAD to report that my daughter slept just fine last night (wipes sweat of relief off forehead, haha). And she woke up happy! I highly suspect that...

Parenthood... in Staying Connected

My daughter is going through an especially challenging stage right now. There are two things going on simultaneously. First, she’s extremely attached to me. Like, it really borderlines on obsess...

The Light in Staying Connected

Well, there have been some positive developments since my last entry, thank god. Yesterday my husband suggested we all go to the grocery store together. This is what we always used to do, before ...

Ghosts in Staying Connected

I did it. I survived the week. My husband promised me that tomorrow, I could sleep in as late as I need to. You know, it’s the strangest thing. Being so unprocessed and emotionally vulnerable th...


21 clients down. 6 clients to go. Usually I only schedule 26 clients per week, and the only reason I was able to schedule 30 this week was because I scheduled 9am appointments on four of the day...

Not Great in Staying Connected

14 clients down, 14 more to go. I still feel like hell. I’m exhausted. My baby has been waking up at the ass crack of dawn, crying. I think she’s having bad dreams. She’s also still being clingy...
