- jewish writer/former screenwriter/recovering accountant from Boston now moldering in the rain in Portland, OR. and, yes, of course i should move but I battle with Agoraphobia and have trouble even leaving my apartment. but i'm blessed to have two fabulous service dogs, Ella Fitzgerald and Cocoa Chanel. Ella alerts to panic attacks and Cocoa to seizures. They give me a life, such as it is.

i'll write something later on when i finish vomiting from god knows what...
okay, hiring people to work for you is not easy. it's super challenging for a mentally healthy person with great self-esteem who is not desperate to find someone and who is having a good day.
well, that is not me, as we have established. i will actually be pretty brief… Read full post »
i am feeling so proud of myself and beyond grateful for the fantastic opportunities that are coming my way!

(before i talk about anything else, i need to mention that decades ago i got 2/3 of an MBA from Berkeley and 3/5 of a CPA. i worked in accounting and finance at one of the big ass firms in S. F. and then at Paramount Pictures and Universal Studios. lots… Read full post »
WARNING: this is about very very very very PTSD type stuff. very dark. very triggering. i needed to write it down. i needed to get it out and away from me when it all came up for me tonight. but it's as dark as it gets. so please don't read this… Read full post »
after a week or more of houseboundedness and some deep despair -- well, a lot of despair AND some hopelessness thrown in for good measure -- i managed to take a shower (so i was clean clean clean) and to get Cocoa… Read full post »
note: i've been battling a persistent Bipolar 2 depression. i thought of this, a dark non-fiction piece I posted 5 years ago. 50 ratings and an Editor's Pick! back in those days. it takes place a few decades ago and mentions suicide several times. the lighter side. so please don't read… Read full post »
Please click on this link for a lovely Pictorial that tells the whole story of Gary Cooper behaving oddly and seeming to desert me and Cocoa.... and how it all turns out. … Read full post »
first of all, links to the Kitty and Puppy pics, some of which turned out beautifully this time around.
Prologue: Kitty Pics/Kitten in a Bag
first the good news. the good stuff. this is why i keep a daily gratitude journal because, even on the worst days when all i can say is "i'm thankful for breathing in and out...", it keeps me focused on what… Read full post »
there is a lot more to say about today -- which i will fill in later and of course link to new kitty pics -- but this was kind of a surprise. the Vet tech came back in the room carrying Gloria and announced, "this is not… Read full post »
it's been a rough week with the beginning of the HorrorDays and the attendant bipolar 2 depression, close to complete agoraphobic houseboundedness and just a touch of PTSD thrown in for good measure. but as Steven Wright says, "you can't have everything... where would you… Read full post »

first the misery and the nasty neighbors, then the Miracle of the Carousing Kitty.
i have a little basket of mental illnesses. none of them are fun. there's the agoraphobia, the bipolar 2 and the PTSD. the agoraphobia was terrible this past… Read full post »
latest kitty pics. Gloria on her own and cuddling with her beloved Cocoa Chanel. it's pretty much like this: Gloria is Cocoa's Kitten and Cocoa is Gloria's canine-american. my role? feeding G and providing a barrier for Cocoa to hide behind when she's worn out from playing with G.

i keep a Daily Gratitude Journal. i began doing this in 1999 or so, back when Oprah still had a show and the focus was on the books Simple Abundance and Don't Sweat the Small Stuff. and O was my girl. it's a long story for another time but i ended… Read full post »

okay, so i had seen several Positive Changes hypnosis ads but they were all about weight loss, showing before and after photos which can, of course, be altered and the big changes could be due to gastric bypass or another miracle treatment. the way it was marketed, it just felt like… Read full post »
