Here’s been the fun thing about this week – I haven’t been taking care of myself.  Oh, I’ve been sleeping, and trying to cram stuff into my brain, but I haven’t been saying “No.”  And this, my friends, is a big issue for me.   Chem Lab was let out early yesterday – I’m not sure […]

Some days I do feel like there is a dragon on my six, breathing fire down my neck and pushing me in a direction I don’t want to go.  It can be the product of stress, (real or imagined,) situations, or sheer frustration, and of course, my demonic frenemies; triggers.   In the past fortnight […]
