In Memory of Her Memory

By | March 29th, 2017|Categories: What's New With Taylor|Tags: , , , |

Although I'll be posting this at a later date, and waiting until my family is notified, I had to write this now. At the time of writing it's been two hours since I discovered my Gram has passed, and I'm still blown away by the loss of my best friend. I am hurt, happy, and lost. [...]

Hallelujahs and Hocus Pocus; A Sneak Peak Of Free Tayco

The following is a sneak peak from the upcoming memoir, Free Tayco. This comes from Chapter 10; Hallelujahs and Hocus Pocus, a chapter about being admitted inpatient in a psychiatric wing, recovery from insanity, and relapse.    My first memories came from one of my roommates. She was an older woman who would cry out late at night that [...]

Non Factors

By | March 1st, 2017|Categories: Story Time|Tags: , , , , |

I don't think I've talked much about my body image on any of my blogs; that's because my perception of myself is pretty awful. I've always had a love/hate relationship with the way I look. I am very short, and I carry weight weird, or at least, I used to think I did. That was, until I actually [...]

Re-Diagnosed

I've known for a while that bipolar wasn't the proper diagnosis for me. Things weren't adding up, just like when things weren't adding up when a doctor told me I had ADHD. Parts of the diagnosis made sense, and did for a while, but it didn't fit what was going on with me entirely. Being told I was [...]

I'm home; my war paint is off (aka my makeup is washed off), my pajamas are on, and I'm pretty much ready to go to bed (it's early, but I'm tired today). I finally have a chance to recount what happened today. If you read my blog last week, you'll know I was let down greatly [...]

It’s Not Personal; A Post About Budget Cuts

"It's not personal," she told me over the phone; I couldn't help but notice her condescending tone, talking to me like I was a patient and she was my therapist. But that's the thing; she was denying me mental health treatment, after agreeing to take me on as a patient. She didn't have the right to [...]

Okay, we really need to talk about the show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. This post contains some spoilers, but none without warning. For those of you who haven't discovered the CW hit show yet, I encourage you to go binge watch both seasons of the show, which thankfully both seasons are on Netflix (once again, thank you Netflix for [...]

We Are The Lion’s Pride

*Names will be excluded out of respect for the family* Today my class was shook upon finding out the death of a classmate. We graduated six years ago; we are all still young. Yet the very first one of our classmates has passed on, in his early twenties, leaving behind his parents, his siblings, and a [...]
