Missing the Flavor in the Mac and Cheese

Yesterday, my therapist and I talked about the need for me to get outside of my bubble more often. It should be noted that while I like the idea, at least in theory, the mere phrase triggers twinges of anxiety within me in practice. I am so reluctant to try new things unless someone else […]

A Case of Meh

Or you can call it the fog or a lack of spoons, but I prefer meh. It wasn’t a full-blown depression that I was experiencing these last couple days, more just a general aimlessness.
