Obviously, I’m not great with websites – or WordPress – which is an embarrassing thing to admit since I use WordPress all the time at my job as a writer, but here we are.
It’s been a busy year.
- I’m about to start a masters program.
- I’m seeing a therapist. (Wait. That sounds like I’m “dating” a therapist… but no. Once a week for the foreseeable future, I’m paying someone to listen to me talk for an hour so that hopefully I can heal from years of buried trauma, finally process the events of the past 2-3 years and maybe get a handle on all the things associated with menopause and years of undiagnosed depression. It’s a lot).
- I got a second cat – not quite as monumental as the first two items – but still a thing that happened and what better way to deescalate a serious conversation than to talk about kittens?
So – with all that being said – I’ve decided, at least for now, to use this space to talk about all the things we’re not supposed to talk about in public. Menopause, therapy, being a woman AND over 50, having feelings about stuff and things – especially feelings that aren’t all rainbows and sunshine.
