Happy! in And So It Goes....

I am loving my life. Life is good. Life is so much better. I now get up early. I accomplish the majority of what I set out to do. Aside from 2 blankets I am totally caught up on my laundry. Sure,...

As far as meeting someone new (and I was given Bear’s permission), I do not think that will ever happen. I used to think that I was not all that bad looking....medium brown hair w/ beautiful high...

YES... in And So It Goes....

I AM ON MY OWN WATCH.


Sometimes that is how I feel. It is far from the truth. There are family and friends whom love me. I will go so far as to say that I have PB friends whom deeply care for me. Depending on whom I a...

Why? in And So It Goes....

I waste far too much time worrying and fretting about people whom fly by night and come and go (where I live). I need to get over it, big-time.


A few minutes ago, I spoke with Bear. He asked me what I had been up to. He suggested that I tread ever so carefully in order that I do not once again end up hurt. He is oh so very correct. In th...


I just finished reading an entry belonging to another diarist on this site. Comments were closed. They more or less expressed a feeling of hollowness or dysphoria. What they expressed in their en...
