This summer has been very hard for me. I feel like every time I sort of get a handle on my stress levels, some small thing pushes me back into feeling like crap. Tonight my kids gave me such a hard time going to bed, which in the grand scheme ... Read more

I said this to my sister today when we were talking about my parents' health issues. It freaks me out to even type "my parents' health issues" because as of last year they didn't have any. Now my mom has a non-cancerous tumour and my dad had a... Read more
