I used to be very extroverted when I was a kid. By the time I was a teenager, I became an introvert. I started shutting out new people in fear of getting hurt. It kept me from finding a meaningful relationship. Part of it was having gone through abuse and then trying to ignore dealing…

by Martha Maggio aka Crafty B/poopiemcgoo 🙂 I really hate holidays. As a recovering food addict and post-surgery weight loss patient, I really deep-down hate holidays.

I was driving to work this morning. A Possum ran into the middle of the road. I did my best to dodge it, but I accidently hit it and it is bothering me. Some might say that it was just a Possum, but to me, it was one of God’s creatures. My wife and I…
