Do you know your ACE (Adverse Childhood Experiences) score? Take the quiz and find out. The score is 0-10. 

https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2015/03/02/387007941/take-the-ace-quiz-and-learn-what-it-does-and-doesnt-mean

Interesting fact: having a higher score can cause all kinds of health issues in middle age. The top diseases include liver damage, Fibromyalgia, IBS, GERD, muscle pain, chronic fatigue, cancer, kidney damage, ulcers, high blood pressure, insomnia and more. 

What happens is glucocosteroids trigger the sympathetic nervous system without you knowing it. That sore shoulder that never seems to find relief from pain could be from tension spiked by a chemical response in your body while you sleep. Withou...

There are challenges we all face in life whether it stems from childhood issues, trauma, medical or financial issues and more. The thing is, sometimes we feel we have done a good job of being self aware, discovering our gaps and we take proactive measures to ensure we don't fall down the same rabbit hole again, only to discover we are back where we started. 

But are we? Healing is a journey. It has many paths and it takes us to many places. Hopefully we make healthy choices on how to cope. Unfortunately, some of us do not. That does not mean it is hopeless. Far from it. 

The choices we make, the actions we take are because we are human, and we are reacting to an abnormal situation with normal responses. 

Take a moment and let...

It has been an interesting, challenging, emotional and enlightening journey these past six months since I decided I wanted to teach yoga for therapy. I am not going to get involved with all the ubiquitous debates about East verses West and why we should not bother with this tradition, because that is another post entirely.

I want to focus on the positive, the healing, the journey and the human soul. I started out broken. Six years ago, I had a ruptured brain aneurysm, and survived even though I should have died. I had a 15% of survival. That's as close to death as a person can get before coming back to wipe off the fingerprints from the Grim Reaper off their shoulder. This changed my life. I was at peace for the first time in yea...

 Decided this is going to be another year of firsts for me. Most years are...I do not allow the grass to grow under my feet. Never have. I have always lived in my head and always five years into the future. It is great for planning, organizing and seeing the 'big picture', but sucks though for living in the moment. I have also realized that with the decision to pull up stakes and move with the possibility of writing and editing full time, I have come full circle, where I was meant to be. All the running around trying to figure out what I wanted to be when I grow up has finally materialized. Wish I knew then.......but then again I will never be that person sitting on the deck, at 80, wondering what my life could have become. I wi...

Stories circulate in my head on a constant basis. Reeling them in and trying to get them into neat little boxes that eventually intertwine and could possibly become something interesting and cohesive is an entirely different matter. So I keep either a notebook or an electronic version of a notebook with me at all times. I write down ideas, thoughts, weird things I've seen and wait for the magic to begin.

My son and I have recently begun watching the X-Files from the beginning and I realized a few elements of the show had wound up in my stories. Weird. I love the way the brain works. I love that human memories can take a dozen different experiences, warp them all together into one gigantic blob and put them in our frontal cor...

What If

It's been a weird week for me. Been really sentimental and looking at pictures of all the dogs I have loved and lost. Been thinking about where I am and where I want to be. Thinking about work and where it is going. Thinking of new stories and ideas. Thinking of people thousands of miles away whom I wish were closer so I can wrap my arms around them and tell them how happy I am they are in my life. And hoping they will be with me in this life and all others......

Yeah I live in my head. Always have. I analyze, rationalize, plot, think, re-hash and anthropomorphize  everything. Never gets lonely in there. Too many things to keep me company. I can honestly say I have never been bored. And until 7 years ago, never knew what...

I decided I want to be a hippie.  No, wait. A Hippie.....looked up the the synonyms and I guess it kind of fits:

Main Entry:  bohemian

Part of Speech:  noun

Definition:  nonconformist

Synonyms: artist, beatnik, dilettante, flower child, freespirit, gypsy, hippie*, 

 iconoclast,writer

I am an artist, a horror

writer, definitely a freespirit, always wanted to be a gypsy so I am guessing Hippie, it is....by the way, when you read this, you have to read it with a Southern accent, because in my head, that is how I sound. Always.

2012 was a wake up call in a series of wake up calls for my husband and myself. A friend, with whom we were both close to, died. She was 51, out walking her dog...
