My Invisible Illness

My Invisible Illness

I deal with and have dealt with a few, unseen but very much felt, illnesses in my life, anxiety, and what is commonly understood as depression. So In my 34 years I’ve known what it is like to be so unwell on the inside but look like there’s nothing going on, to the outside world. What I didn’t know is how some of those mental illnesses were caused by another issue completely. Some of these are misdiagnosed to be something they can easily be placed as, a common or easy diagnosis is often wrong. Instead of being the diagnosis, these...


Not Your Average Girl Power

Not Your Average Girl Power

In a time where girl power is celebrated, little girls are being told to dream big and being empowered, told they can be anything, do anything they set their minds and hearts to. Women speaking out against inequality in everything from t-shirt sayings to the work place. I see so much of the saying “it’s hard to be a man right now” well if your a shitty man hell yes it is, and if you’re not then keep on keeping on. But there’s is so much less of the latter in this time, that we don’t really see anything but....


Mommin In A Different Era

Mommin In A Different Era

Grandmas are wonderful, grandmas are loving and helpful and make life easier. They mean well, they’ve raised kids, they have seen it all, and most of the time you can learn a thing or two. But they raised kids in a different day and age. Life is a whole lot different the when they had babies and toddlers. My grandma actually asked me why I couldn’t just hold the baby in my arms when we took him home from the hospital. (There are so many things wrong with that statement alone I can’t even.) Like I said they mean well,...


Not Your Average Kind Of Love

Not Your Average Kind Of Love

I’ve been married for 5 years now. We have been together for 8 years and living together for 7 1/2. Before we started dating and were young, neither of us had any real responsibilities, life was a day to day come what will. Both careless and misguided . Both of us in our own separate lives had no real direction and had no intentions of settling down. I was in fact never going to get married and never have children. That just wasn’t for me, wasn’t in my plans, or cards. I never wanted to be anything but wild and...


Not Your Average Mom Tired

Not Your Average Mom Tired

I wonder if other moms do the same shit I do, feel like I do on some days. Also, sit and stare at a wall with the “taxidermy Fox” look on their face. Literally so momed out that all you can do is scowl at the wall, an eye twitch here and there. Breathily and high pitched you let out an airy squeak  “whaaat the fuuuuuuhhhaa?!” Have you ever been that over mommed that you literally feel nothing but numb yet everything all at once at the end of a bad day (or sometimes half way through said day?)...
