Coming Soon

There’s a LOT Going On in this World I have a lot of thoughts on a daily basis and there is always something that happens that, in some way, impacts me. Not too long ago, I wrote about minding out own business especially if it doesn’t impact you ( see Why You Have to LearnContinue reading “Coming Soon”

Why You Have to Learn to Live and Let Live for Your OWN Sanity

So, for some reason, Mo’Nique has decided to bring up the age old dispute of pajamas and bonnets in public. It’s an argument as old as time. It’s great to care about YOUR appearance and how other people perceive you but it’s NOT your responsibility to force your beliefs on others. My mother has raisedContinue reading “Why You Have to Learn to Live and Let Live for Your OWN Sanity”

The Story of My Mental Illness

Because this is Mental Health Awareness Month, I decided that today is the day that I tell the story of my diagnosis, symptoms, frustrations, treatments, and all that good stuff. If there are any questions that you would like to ask, please feel free to do so. When Did I Notice a Problem? When IContinue reading “The Story of My Mental Illness”

Why the Feelings of Parents with Disabled Children Should be Considered

On Twitter (I should just leave Twitter), I have seen a lot of disdain towards parents who state their feelings. As a mother to a child with disabilities, I have watched in horror as it has been said by advocates that “we don’t care about what the parents feel, just the child”. When you sayContinue reading “Why the Feelings of Parents with Disabled Children Should be Considered”

The Pettiness of Facebook and Why I Was “Restricted” for 30 Days

What I did This Time I literally said that “men are dumb sometimes”. This is what I said. Now, I’ve seen a lot of things posted on Facebook that demean women. Don’t get me started on WAP and how the men tore into women for that video and the fact that women were okay withContinue reading “The Pettiness of Facebook and Why I Was “Restricted” for 30 Days”

Being the Parent to a Teenager with Special Needs is HARD!

My daughter was diagnosed with a Moderate Intellectual Disability (moderate mental retardation is the past way that it was referred to) at a young age and my world came to a halt. My daughter has a blog and I went through some of the things that I thought about when she was first diagnosed. InContinue reading “Being the Parent to a Teenager with Special Needs is HARD!”

I Love My White Friends But This Has to be Said

What many of you fail to realize is that this mess didn’t just START with George Floyd. Not even a month ago Ahmaud Arbery was shot for jogging (by racists that thought they had some sort of authority). Dude was jogging man. What’s worse is that there are SO many other men AND women onContinue reading “I Love My White Friends But This Has to be Said”

Never Discount the Wisdom of Your Single Friends

I find it especially condescending when people assume that the fact that you are not CURRENTLY in a relationship means you have no knowledge of what it takes to have a relationship, successful or otherwise. Newsflash: WISDOM CAN COME FROM ANYWHERE! I say this often and I will say this again. I have learned aContinue reading “Never Discount the Wisdom of Your Single Friends”
