Unhappy Sucksgiving

I’m sure I’m not the only one who gets “holiday induced” depression. From Thanksgiving right on through the New Year, I’m a hot fucking mess. My family dynamics are fucked. My beloved brother deigns not to speak to any of us anymore due to the culmination of our toxicity. He and I were a team,…

My Shrink

I’m not sure if it’s a tiny bit unpolitically correct to call my psychiatrist a shrink, BUT that man KNOWS me, like no one else does, so I suppose he wouldn’t feel offended at the knowledge I call him that. I mean no disrespect whatsoever, just when I approach his office, I can picture the…

Friday, My Second Favorite “F” Word and Cockmeat Sandwiches

Hello Friday!! I don’t know what the hell I’m so excited for….at my age and seriousness of my many ailments, physical and mental, Friday is absolutely different from no other day. Maybe it’s because my sweet husband is home for two whole uninterrupted days with me. Maybe it’s the fact that he’s trying his hardest…

Shoe Junkie

Hi my name is Bella, and I’m a shoe junkie!! They say the first first step in recovery is admitting that you have a problem. Well I have a problem….a big fucking problem. Even in my shoe bliss fog of denial I know that 200+ pair of shoes is a bit excessive. I also do…

I’ll Cut A Bitch

I went to the doctors office this morning at an ungodly hour, 7am is about the time I’ve only been asleep for approximately 2.5 hours most nights because of the tossing, turning and writhing in pain from Fibromyalgia. After an entire pot of coffee AND a shower with one leg stuck out of the shower…

Caffeine, Chaos and Cuss Words

I had forgotten that 7:00am was really a time of day! Sweet baby Jesus, with his Einstein developmental, this shit sucks!! I’ve already had three large mugs of high octane coffee and my eyes are still at half mast. I haven’t had a decent nights sleep since my knee surgery four weeks ago. Of course…

Facing My Fears

My husband and I were coming home from dinner a couple of weeks ago and I said what’s that big stick doing in our driveway…holy shit that stick is moving. He replied that’s not a stick sweetheart it’s a fairly big snake. For the record snakes scare the unholy shit out of me but when…

My Sweet Husband

My hubby knows I’ve been feeling bummed about not snapping back from my knee surgery like I did twenty years ago, after having the first one. A month in and I’m still having a bit of trouble, navigating our stairs, which pisses me off because I loathe asking anyone for help. Soooooo after an extremely…

Honestly, In My Opinion…

These said what I wanted to say so much better than I ever could! Happy Monday, my Pretties! TTFN💕💕💕💕💕

We Are Stronger TOGETHER

As a resident of South Louisiana, I’ve seen and endured my share of natural disasters in my 46 years. Time and time again the American Red Cross has shown up with basic toiletries, cleaning supplies and even a hot meal. Also with the kind of devastation we Louisianaians saw after Katrina, the “Great Flood of…

This my friends is why you go into nursing, or any type of medicine for that matter. The care, love and compassion, radiates from this beautiful…

An Open Letter To ALL Veterans

You are important. You are loved. You are remembered. No matter how big or small your role has been in protecting this country, I thank you. No matter what position you held or what tasks you performed, I thank you. I thank you for giving your life for this country. I thank you for dedicating…

Ebony and Ivory 2018

http://www.youtube.com/watch As I watched this amazing rendition of our National Anthem, I couldn’t help feeling a great sense of unity and camaraderie between this “old white man” and a generations younger African American woman, as they sang. One does not see black and white. Old and young. One sees pride and love. Why can’t every…

Penises: An Unauthorized Biography

I’ve been waffling on writing this post for quite some time as I am an amazingly happily married woman who adores her husband. I’ve been single though. During middle age when you think the people that you are having awesome conversations with are other adults with some god damn civility and decorum, but oh hell…
