The Guilt Only Working Parents Understand

You could say my parents and my parent’s parents and anyone in my extended family have always been quintessential, hard-working Americans. Salt of the earth, as the old saying goes. They wore soiled, tattered boots. A sweaty handkerchief dangled from the back of their jeans. They kept their heads down, never complained, and provided for their wives and children. Conversely, ...

As I write this, the ongoing war between the medical community and the anti-vaccination community is raging to new heights which – quite frankly – I didn’t even know was possible.

Toddlers: The Real Masters Of Gaslighting

I have a confession to make. For the last year or so of my life, I’ve been mentally and emotionally abused by a man I love.
