Step-parenting a Narcissists Kid
I know everyone thinks their ex is a narcissist or at least has narcissistic tendencies, but I would bet money on D’s ex being a narc and possibly even bipolar. Coming from a family of bipolar-schizos, I can spot em a mile away. That and being empathic usually helps sort out the shit humans pretty…
Fake Shops and Nutrition Stops
Buckle up, Buttercup! Anti-MLM rant coming your way! A fancy new trend I’ve been noticing is “nutrition” shops opening up all over town and within 10-15 miles of town. I bet they have in YOUR area too. A quick Google search will show you just how many. Generally the listings are complete with chalkboard photos…
Lie-abetes… It’s a Thing.

A Spoon Full of Insulin Helps the Sugar Go Down
This past Summer, my beautiful, smart, sassy future step-daughter was diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic at 8 years old. I had mentioned this in a previous post and talked about dealing with her mother more frequently. The past 7 months have certainly been interesting, navigating not only lack of co-parenting, but with her mother’s…
