When a hike makes you want to throw up.

When a hike makes you want to throw up.

G and I took a drive last month to look at the fall colours and enjoy a day together in the midst of all the craziness. The beautiful autumn leaves were out in their full splendour. The sun was shining and the birds were singing and the logging trucks were trying to kill me. You [...]

Healing; because that’s always a good time…

Healing; because that’s always a good time…

It's been a summer, people. Not just because of how the Corona Virus throws a wrench in everything, but because of what's happened around here. If you've been following my blog for a while, you will know that I am on my second marriage. I ended my first marriage of 17 years because I couldn't [...]

Why is self care so much work?!

Why is self care so much work?!

I love Esma, I really do. She's like my soul sister. I have a job in the service industry as the front end staff for the local humane society. I love it at work. It's quiet and the cats don't talk back. I know what I'm supposed to accomplish, and when I'm done I can [...]

My vitamins were straight up trying to kill me.

My vitamins were straight up trying to kill me.

This is a continuation from my last post, with a happier ending. https://youcandothis.blog/2020/01/29/i-cant-drink-coffee-anymore-probs-not-gonna-make-it/ I went and saw my doctor recently. She informed me that I wasn't going to die, which was good news overall. She also informed me that she strongly believes I have adrenal fatigue from the constant state of stress my body has [...]

I can’t drink coffee anymore..probs not gonna make it.

I can’t drink coffee anymore..probs not gonna make it.

It is now January the 29th, in the year of our Lord 2020. It has been precisely 25 days since I've been able to handle a cup of coffee. I'm obviously dying. I've been sick the whole month of January. The whole freaking month! I had this inner ear thing going on where I was [...]

G went sledding and I didn’t die.

G went sledding and I didn’t die.

This Saturday was a momentous occasion. G went off to play in the (traitorous , murderous, I don't give a crap who you are I will kill you with no mercy!) mountains. And I didn't die. I seem to have a bit of anxiety regarding this particular hobby of his. See https://youcandothis.blog/2019/10/30/i-had-my-first-ever-panic-attack-it-sucked/ for further reference. [...]

I think Costco is lying to me.

I think Costco is lying to me.

I just got my rebate cheque back from Costco. I think they’re lying. It’s for one hundred and thirty dollars and seventeen cents. I spend approximately twenty-ish thousand dollars there a year... In my humble opinion, my rebate cheque should read more like seven thousand dollars and seventeen cents. There are nine of us that [...]

I had my first ever panic attack. It sucked.

I had my first ever panic attack. It sucked.

G and I went to see a therapist this past week. I had asked him to join me for that session regarding my anxiety. We went to try and brainstorm ideas for helping me work through my overwhelming separation anxiety, and just my craziness in general. The session went well. I was logical. We came [...]

Camping, but not like in a tent because who does that.

Camping, but not like in a tent because who does that.

We went camping, all nine of us. We drove for ten hours to get to the first location and nobody died. In my books that's a miracle. You see, I'm not at my best when we are camping. I'm crabby and overtired and my anxiety is always running high. There is of course a perfectly [...]

Post-moving

Alright so we're all moved in. I posted this to my instagram story three days after we got here.. The caption with the pic went along the lines of we were all moved in and I was now enjoying the sunset from the comfort of my new hot tub on the deck. Does that not [...]
