Child abuse: 0 – Dentist: 1

There are only 2 humans on this earth who truly know the extent of my dental phobia. Imagine that, only two solitary humans that you could ever openly talk to about your biggest fear. I always speak openly about my dental phobia. Have done for a while. I even wrote “CSE….Do you really want to…

Always a drama, never an ending

I do love a good guest blog, ones that just spill out of nowhere. Today’s guest blogger was created on the off chance.

I should not write when I am angry.

I am writing this angry, and I probably shouldn’t. Even though I write my blogs straight from the heart, I should not write when angry. But I am. In the past week I have had so many different interactions with people around fatal stabbings. This week. Some I can talk about and some I can’t….
