A Special Birthday Wish on my 37th…


So, another year has passed. Today June 26, 2017, officially marks my 37th birthday and I couldn’t be happier. I mean I am the fattest I have been in my life, but lets not ruin a positive post with negative bipolar shenanigans. I have also officially maintained staying on medication for 10 years as well, which is huge for me because I always used to throw them out and end up right back in the hospital. Boy my twenties were some dark times. But I digress, the future is upon me and it couldn’t be brighter.

I had the most amazing time today too. I went to the spa with my mom and sister, followed by brunch and the movie “Wonder Woman” which was utterly fantastic! What a perfect girl’s day out! I have to say the actress that plays Wonder Woman is absolutely GORGEOUS and strong, and played the role so well. No one is more fit to step into Linda Carter’s shoes.

Anyway, I had some amazing chats last night, which led to a 48-hour manic marathon where I haven’t had any sleep since Saturday night. I usually get really tired when I have stayed up this long, but I have to say I am pretty pumped. I met some great guys last night online, and met up with some old friends who I haven’t spoken to in a while.

My best friend, (and love of my life), got a new job and it was his first day today. He was supposed to come and join my birthday celebration but he had to start his new job. It was a blessing in disguise because I really got a look at myself when I went out today and BOY did I put on weight! I am officially 100 pounds overweight and it is god awful. Something must be done! But I don’t want to let that sway my good spirits though because life couldn’t be better. As dark as the days that have passed, I can honestly say that I am hopeful to the future, (and it’s not the drinks talking).

So my birthday wish to myself, is that I live for another 37 years, drama-free and bipolar-mood-fucking-hell free.  I was born 37 years ago, when 8-track tapes and Atari were around. Where people called each other up on a landline to hang out, and we all got along better and not glued to the Digital Age. I miss my childhood. I miss growing up playing in the streets and tuning in to Star Trek the Next Generation, the A-Team, and Knight Rider. But it’s a new day, times have changed, and I am hopeful that my life gets better from here on out.

A special shout-out to those who wished me a happy birthday today, it was really kind of you all.

To the next 37!


Stay tuned.
