  • Dear Sir Deli Man,

    [Profanity Warning] I’d like to think I’ve gotten to know you this past year and a half. I know we haven’t said a word to each other in the real and I consider that, as well. I’ve decided to discontinue my fear for negative repercussion and simply dive in to a puddle of thought. I’ve […]

  • Have You Met the Mountain?

    [Minor Profanity Warning] I have been taught a form of shamanism — or perhaps it’s just a crazy dude’s interpretation of reality — since I was seven years old. Native American shamanism. I do not know what tribe it comes from, but I know there are more than three tribes in me. The ones I […]

  • Shadow Work: Abandonment

    The following are excerpts from a journal at that resonate with me: I forgive you for believing lies about yourself that others told you. I forgive you for being so damn naive. I forgive you for believing in someone more than you believed in yourself. I forgive you for believing lies about yourself that […]

  • Profanity Usage – I’m Sorry

    I’m sorry that I’m getting so worked up I keep resorting to profanity. You might find it hurtful to read, my friend. I do not mean offense to you. I only wish to imply how angry things make me. I will do my best to eliminate profanity going forward.

  • Open Forum Therapy

    For the record, my blog is for my therapist to read. I see no reason to make it private other than to save face for an asshole who is king amongst derelicts. And a couple of bitches along the way, too. Fuck ’em. It’s easy to blame myself for all that happened. I did for […]

  • Sticks and Stones

    (Please read this blog post for context.) Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. FALSE. After my psychopathic ex lied to me about getting himself another girlfriend in order to coerce me into a threesome (which didn’t work, might I add), he convinced my best friend to defend him. […]

  • You Don’t Deserve Anything.

    “You don’t deserve anything. You have to earn it.” If men or women or anything in between out there think they deserve someone, they need a reality check. Nothing in this world is for free. Every single action we take has a cost. Every single resource we sip from has a cost. Human beings like […]

  • What to do about autism? It seems to me that neurotypical humans have decided that autism an affliction. To be different is a sin, that’s the subtext I receive, even though I don’t believe in sins or God. It’s just plain wrong. But why? Why is it wrong to be different? Can’t I lend a different perspective to the […]

  • The Fine Line Between Sympathy and Condescension

    It is normal and very human to assume that when an experience sounds like what we already have seen or heard of, or even experienced for ourselves, that we have become subject matter experts (SMEs). To sympathize with someone going through something that we find familiar is automatic, in most cases, evoking the thoughts and […]

  • Court/Photos

    Premise: Crystal’s rapist takes Crystal to court, seeking damages for the deletion of photographs that included the rapist and his family at family gatherings, despite having four and a half years of continuous access to those photographs while the relationship was active. The rapist himself has photographic evidence of raping Crystal in his possession and […]
