Last week, while leaving a meeting, one of the members of the group yells to me, "Happy Easter, Hilda". I respond to her, "Thank you, likewise", and make my way down the hall and out the building. Whenever the traditional Christian holidays come up throughout the year, it can become very awkward for individuals like myself, … Continue reading What Works for Me, Works for Me

The Panic Room

  I've been a worrier my entire life. I can't remember a time that I didn't worry. I'm always thinking, pondering, mind always spinning. To some point that has served me.
