Surgery tomorrow

Just a quick update: My hysterectomy is tomorrow, Wednesday Oct. 24. The plan is for me to come home that same day, but there’s a chance I’ll need to stay in the hospital overnight. I’ll do my best to post at least a short post letting y’all know that I’m through the surgery. But I …

Street Art: “Picturesoteric” by Sirron Norris

"Picturesoteric" by Sirron Norris

So I was heading home today from a couple of pre-surgery errands. (Yes, I know, I have friends who will run errands for me right now… but I wanted the exercise and the outside time, especially since I have a stretch of house-bound boredom and cabin-fever ahead of me.) I was feeling tired and worried, …

Wow, wow, wow — and thanks

Grief Diary, 10/12/12

10/12/12 The thing I’ve been having a hard time with in the last couple of days: The fact that grief feels horrible — and there’s pretty much nothing I can do about it. I’m very used to tackling my problems. I’m used to trying to fix the bad things in my life, or at least …

Richard Hermann Muelder, 1933-2012

My father died on October 1, 2012, at the age of 79. My dad, like me, was an atheist. And when you’re an atheist and a non-believer, and the people you love die, you don’t get to tell yourself that they aren’t really dead. You don’t get to tell yourself that you’re going to see …

National Coming Out Day

Today is National Coming Out Day. So: I’m bisexual. I’m an atheist. I’m kinky. I suffer from situational depression. I think y’all already knew all that. But just in case.

Grief Diary, 10/10/12

10/10/12 A better day today. Took yesterday off from, you know, pretty much everything. I was having some female trouble, so I made that my excuse to do what I’ve been desperately wanting to do and have been afraid to for fear that it would push me deeper into my depression: namely, just check the …
