It's 2020 and it's time for a mental health tune-up

It's 2020 and it's time for a mental health tune-up
I’m a big believer in therapy. Where else can you find a place where someone will let you vent about the problems in your life for an hour without judging you? Hell, after writing that sentence, I should be looking for a therapist I can talk to daily. 2020 has been hard. If it was... Read more »

I'm Graduating From Therapy
You ever have a deja vu moment? I feel like I’ve already written this post. Well damn…I did….about a year ago. I’ve been in therapy for about three years. When I first started, I needed it. I had a lot to talk about. Parkinson’s and Homelessness is good for about a years worth of sessions.... Read more »

Is It Okay To Meet A Woman Through Your Therapist?

Is It Okay To Meet A Woman Through Your Therapist?
Meeting people of the opposite sex isn’t easy. I hear folks complaining about it all the time…both guys and gals. I’m kind of burned out on dating sites. You see the same people on all the different ones. There’s a sports bar 30 feet from where I live. The Blackhawks have even brought the Stanley... Read more »

What Do You Do When You See Your Therapist In Public?

What Do You Do When You See Your Therapist In Public?
The day is last Monday, February 2. I’m scheduled to have my last session with my therapist. I’m leaving town for a month and want to make sure I’m mentally balanced. Highly unlikely but… The day before, Chicago is hit with a snowstorm, blizzard, Armageddon. 15-20 inches of snow. It’s Chicago in February, this occasionally... Read more »

My Therapist Is Breaking Up With Me

┬áIt’s not a secret that I’m in therapy. I’ve written about it many times. I’ve talked about it to friends and family. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about. There’s no shame in needing help…and getting it. I look forward to our Monday visits. A couple of times I’ve been there talking about the death of... Read more »

Support Groups R Us

Monday morning I was talking with my therapist. We were chatting about finding me another outlet to deal with some of my problems. One 50 minute session a week wasn’t enough and I needed some advice. Sadly, at the exact time of my therapy session, Robin Williams’ body was found in his California home. Suicide…unable... Read more »

It's Okay To Hug Your Therapist

If you’ve read this blog over the last year, it’s pretty common knowledge that I have a therapist. Here’s how it went down. When I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s about 18 months ago, one of my doctors recommended it. He said your body is going to be going through a lot of changes and it... Read more »

They Call Me Mellow Yellow

There’s a fine line between being a good guy and being a chump. There’s a fine line between being able to roll with what happens and being a wuss. There’s a fine line between being mellow and being a fucking pussy!!!! As always there’s a back story, so let’s start there….. A couple of months... Read more »

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
