Loving a Sociopath

Loving a Sociopath

I hate that word. “Sociopath.” It makes you sound like a complete monster. Like some serial killer that we hear about on the news. I don’t think you’re a monster. Well, I didn’t used to think that you were a monster. Because when I think of monsters I think of horrifying creatures that reside in […]

Let’s Talk About Sex

Koalas.

Koalas.

Welcome to the Psych Ward (It’s more like a vacation spot)

Welcome to the Psych Ward (It’s more like a vacation spot)

“What’re you in for?” She asked that as I sat down at the cafeteria table where the rest of the 20 year old girl patients were sitting. “Dammit, Kate. Could you be more blunt?” asked the girl sitting across from me. She was Kate’s roommate. Kate rolled her eyes and looked back at me. Waiting. […]
