Day 289: Sometimes, it just helps to know you’re not alone

Two confessions, this morning: Sometimes, I confuse words for things. For example,  I’ll say “January” when I mean “July.”  I wonder if people think —  when I do that — that I am confused about what time of year it is.  THAT could be embarrassing. Sometimes, I procrastinate making changes. That can feel embarrassing, too. […]

Day 2011: What’s your intent?

When I am confused by somebody’s actions or statements, I like to ask “What’s your intent?” If I don’t ask, I assume what the intent is and I’m probably wrong. If I knew the owner of this car … … I would ask  “What’s your intent in having that license plate?”   Because I don’t know […]

Day 1322: It’s not me

It’s not me who came up with this idea for a t-shirt: It was my co-worker and friend, Megan (pronounced Mee-gan) AND me. It’s not Megan who is writing this blog post, it’s me. It’s not me who is supporting Donald Trump, gets more than six hours of sleep every night, has a normal heart, […]

Day 1307: Are you nervous?

As more people are finding out about my open heart surgery scheduled for September 21, they are asking me some variation of today’s title question: Are you nervous? It’s a good question. I’m not sure how to answer. If I don’t know how to answer, it makes me less nervous to turn a question around. […]

Day 1294: Alone/Connected

When I was a little kid, I spent a lot of time in hospitals, because of my unusual heart.  Because hospitals didn’t have the heart they have now, they did not allow my parents to spend the night with me.  As a result, I  was frightened and alone, during a time I especially needed to […]

Day 941: Who would you bring in?

Yesterday, at an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) session, my therapist George gave me an assignment. He and I were revisiting a very upsetting incident when I was young and left alone with a lot of pain in a hospital room (which I’ve written about here).  The assignment was this: Make a list of […]
