Trigger Warnings

It’s been a great while, okay, maybe not a total while but a lot of things have changed like my whole new streak of not hurting myself. Yes, I’ve been dealing with the urges even hurting myself eventually while that was mired in a lot of emotions and impulses, I’ve been better for it. I do know those sorts of feelings do past and that I can get over them. I can and will do my best.

Every day is a victory for me, one step to managing something I will have for the rest of my life while that can sound like a terrible burden (at times it feels like it), it gives me grit and resolve to be myself even in the face of mental illness. I don’t normally talk about it mostly on my blog anymore since people think I’m “whining” when in actuality it has filled all of the holes in my life and people can be ignorant that mental illness can’t do that when it does. I’ve changed from an independent working girl full of life now to a shivering mess of a person. All because of abuse. Remember that things like this can have lasting effects on children and if you don’t believe them (which happened to me) then it makes the stigma worse.

I recently switched to a new Smartwatch, one that is tied to a phone service and has its own number but we don’t use it at all, in fact, it’s pretty awesome! It’s called the ZTE Quartz and while I don’t have my own pictures of it, I can assure you that you can change watch faces with loads of other features: weather, health, time, watch faces, calling, texting, receiving calls and texts.

Originally I had the Pebble Smartwatch which jumped started the whole craze of Smartwatches even if the support is gone for it, I do miss it because I had it for the longest time and it just became a part of myself, a part of my wrist. Anyhow, the Pebble Smartwatch came in different sizes and shapes as I had the original Pebble then the Pebble Time.

It’s almost Thanksgiving and I think, how and why did the time go? Anyhow, Marley turned 4 on the 10th of November thus she will have a celebration on Thanksgiving even if my husband works which is a blessing for me. I don’t like my in laws that much and they hardly if tolerate me.

Oh well.


Yay for a new smartwatch!

I think what doesn’t break you will make you stronger and grit will come along with it. Gambatte, Michelle!

Aw, don’t worry about other people. Most don’t really understand this stuff. I know how that can feel.

Funny, cause I just got myself a Fitbit. Not a smartwatch but kinda similar, and I love it. Yours looks cool. Actually looks like a normal watch!

A happy birthday to your dog!

Man, your new smartwatch looks cool! It actually looks like an actual watch especially with that watchface! I do remember the Pebble days too, I enjoyed the Pebble Time and I really think it was a solid smartwatch 🙂

I really admire you for being so strong and for wanting to fight despite the difficulties! We’re rooting for you, Michelle! 🙂
