Testing? Hello? Is this thing ON?

So I am a “Blogger” now? Wow! (Sarcasm Intended)

Now would be a be a good time to disclose that I am sarcastic at times. I also like the use of profanity. So if you’re offended by either, well, I don’t really give a shit!

So why am I blogging? Will anybody read what I have to say? Will anybody care? Again, I don’t really give a shit. Or do I?

My favorite show at the moment is “The Big C”, starring Laura Linney and Oliver Platt.


In the mind blowing closing scene of the Season 2 finale, we are led to believe that Paul (played by Oliver Platt), dies of a heart attack. At the beginning of Season 3, we are able to rejoice in the fact that Paul is, in fact alive! It is later revealed that Paul died for approximately 3 minutes. His near death experience prompts him to share this experience with the rest of the world via an online blog. Paul’s sheer joy at being able to connect with others was hard for me to ignore.

Over the past few months I have had this nagging urge to write. But write what exactly? I’ve never done a writing course so could I write something that would be considered even remotely coherent. Self doubt nags me as I write this sentence. So I resort back to my motto in life.

“Keep it Simple Stupid! – K.I.S.S. for short – just in case you haven’t heard of this one yet.

So what are the rules then? There aren’t any. I will write what I want and when I want. That’s simple enough.

I’ll consider this an introduction blog. This is who I am, what I’m doing, and if you do not like it, then move along.

Nothing about Bipolar? Not yet. There is plenty of time for that. For now, I can feel my brain starting to slow down. Time to sign off.

Until next time,

  1. I am excited to read your sarcastically-toned posts!! I do them, too, and I always worry (even though I say I don’t care) that I will offend. I can relate to being socially inept, so I have learned to be more of a solitary person over time. I think I am HILARIOUS and fun, but I always seem to build up that rapport and friendship, then my mood will turn inward (or far, far too outward) and I embarass myself or just make people feel rejected. Ah well. Books and computers are always there no matter my attention span or mood.

    I function pretty well now…I have been medicated for almost 3 years and had a switch from lithium to depakote this year. It sucked, but I feel much better as of this month.

    Anyway…see how I ramble? Yeah, that is my “first-impression” personality. Blah, blah blah.

    I like your honest posts and am excited to be part of your new audience!


    • Hi Jenn. Thank you so much. Loved your comment and I enjoyed reading your blog too. I’m thrilled that the medication change has been successful. I like to look beyond first impressions. I think they matter very little, but that’s just me speaking. Your enthusiasm is awesome! I sincerely wish you all the very best.
