Yesterday, we took a trip down to Hannibal to see Robin. It was a gorgeous day and we got her out and about town for a few hours. It was great! She’d dyed her hair a pretty auburn color that looked nice on her. We took her shopping and stopped at a Chinese restaurant that(…)
This is such a difficult thing to write, so please bear with me. Robin and I have been together for over 15 years, married over 11. We weren’t together long before her alcoholism was made apparent, but she stopped it… for me. But that’s when the real problems became apparent. She’d been self-medicating her bipolar,(…)
At the Sunrise Christian Academy, Arcadia, FL, 1987.
Robin finally ran across an old VHS recording of her singing a song at the Sunrise Christian Academy when she was in her early teens! I’ll work on getting the VCR hooked up to the laptop so I can digitize it. Until then, there’s this:
I just wanted to brag a little about how awesome this collector’s edition is that came out recently. This over-sized hardcover edition collects issues 1 thru 10 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 8 in all its glory, including a gallery of all the alternate covers in the back (the TPB covers, too) and a(…)
I worry about the stress these last few weeks have put on Robin, and she’s been fantastic, so everyone knows. So today, I got out of the shower and noticed in the mirror this strip of hair shaved away from my chest for the EKG test yesterday. An idea came to mind. I grabbed a(…)
I see that when grad student Sandra Fluke suggested “that women are often prescribed birth control for medical reasons,” Rush claimed this must make a woman a slut, prostitute, and all sorts of other insulting things (click on the quote above to read all about it). Well, Robin has been taking Yaz for years for the(…)
Nine years ago today, it was time to go get our driver’s licenses renewed, and it had been weighing heavily on my mind how concerned Robin had been that I might leave her. See, her schizophrenia had been worsening, and she felt she was becoming too much of a burden to me. I wanted to(…)
We have a boombox in the bathroom for when we’re taking a shower, doing laundry, etc. Tonight, I switched out the Genitorturers CD with a 90s dance CD before Robin’s shower. Let’s see if she notices… When she returned to the living room, our terrier mix had taken over the couch, having stretched out like(…)
Anyone on Playstation 3? With both of us stuck at home, ours is a lifesaver with all the games, Netflix, Music Unlimited, and blu ray fun we have on it. With Robin‘s birthday coming up next Sunday (14th), I thought I’d try something new for the fun of it. We’re big fans of Playstation Home,(…)
Yay! And she seems much more calm. Well, gotta go spend time with my honey!
Sorry to keep this short and sweet, but to be honest, these seizures are killing me. Robin is doing better. She was hoping to come home tonight but she was pretty sick last night, so her doctor thought it best to stay through the weekend. Unless anything serious comes up, she should be coming home(…)
I apologize for the back-and-forth, but we were able to reach Robin’s doctor today and he secured her a room. No visit to the ER first and all that red tape. All she has to do is show up and they’ll get her settled in. She went with us to Columbia to see my neurologist(…)
UPDATE: She’s home! See full update at the bottom: I’ve been extremely proud of Robin. She used to need a stay at the hospital at least a few times a year (usually during big changes in season), but she’s managed to do okay for about a year and a half. Well, she’s been having a(…)
Well, less “counting” and more “enjoying,” but Monday, February 7th marks 8 years that Robin and I have married! I remember during the first year that we were dating, I’d told her how I didn’t think of her as a girlfriend. Being the sadistic ass that I am, I waited a moment to let the(…)
I’m certainly not the first to get hate mail from the deranged idiot, Nickolaus Pacione. After all, he steadily goes after such greats as Brian Keene, Poppy Z. Brite, and Ray Garton, to name but a few. But tonight I got some love from him, and he not only goes after me, but my wife.(…)
Robin received her flu shot for this season. I have never had one in my life. Currently, Robin is very sick. Go figure.
This morning, Robin accidentally took her night time meds instead of her 8am meds. These were the ones that knock her out, but still very important for other things. Since she needed her 8am meds and they were totally different, she went ahead and took those, but this means she took her night pills over(…)
