Something New.

Hey Vulnerabites! Do this with me… I know you’ve subscribed to my blog because you want to hear from me—- I’m most grateful for you and I’m honestly quite humbled by the gesture— but I want to hear from you too! Comment below with some topics you’d be interested in reading about. OR— If you’d like…

Should We Expect Our Friends To…

Hey Vulnerabites, So about this time last year in my blog post, Mentally I’ve Left.  I wrote… Me: I’m alright — still at my job. Want to be gone next year. Really doing myself a disservice by being there.  Guess what? I resigned from my job last week.

My Friends Don’t Trust Me

Hey Vulnerabites, So, I went to counseling recently… TEAM VULNERABLE HERE… Yes BLACK WOMEN DO COUNSELING TOO! Rolling my eyes at everyone who just withdrew my “Strong Black Women” card! But why did I even just do that? I just countered my efforts to live emotionally healthy with a side note that ‘y’all probably think…

How Facebook Helped Me Lie.

Dear Vulnerabites, I really wasn’t ok, but I wanted to give the perception that I was. In fact, I was scrolling through Google deciding which “how to commit suicide” link I wanted to click on. I was searching for a sure way to cement my attempted overdose. I did not want my stomach being pumped…

How Skydiving Changed My Life.

Hey Vulnerabites… WHERE IS THE DOOR?!?!? What if I change my mind? WHERE IS THE !@$%@$@ DOOR!?!?! No door… just something that looks like a thick plastic blind that goes up and down. Calm down honey! Whhooo Sssaaaa. The aircraft is lifting off the runway and I’m laughing hysterically — not out of excitement… just in between the…

He’s Just Not That Into You.

Hey Vulnerabites… take it from me, the girl who has been dumped in ALL of her relationships… I’m not even kidding… lol (that was a very awkward lol). Whether or not I deserved to be dumped in some of those relationships, now that’s a different story. Am I the only one who’s ever been dumped…

I weighed 200 pounds.

Hey Vulnerabites! Just like that… I saw the numbers rolling onward and upward…157…165…174… 181… What the ?#$%@^ Ok, so I never actually hit 200lbs… but I was well on my way. This was the heaviest I had been in my entire life! (I’m 5’7 if that helps you get a better picture). Look! I grew…

Don’t bring porn to Cuba.

No, seriously Vulnerabites! This was part of my introduction as I sat in the clouds filling out my customs form before arriving in this land ‘forbidden to Americans.’ Among the list of things I was asked to declare, right next to live animals (like, do people claim their pets?)… there it was PORNOGRALIA… and in…

10 Months In…I’m Leaving My Husband.

Hey Vulnerabites, Tara and I hit it off instantly (we literally skipped the small talk and tapped into some very vulnerable places in our FIRST conversation). I knew right away this was someone I’d want to ‘keep around.’ Journeying alongside her behind the scenes has been an honor. I hope that you’ll grow to love her as you get…

We’re All Waiting For…

My phone would not stop buzzing, one text after another came rolling in. I ignored it. I wasn’t ready for people’s opinions on how I should’ve just ‘kept that to myself.’ When my ‘panic-attack-like’ symptoms subsided and I had the guts to face what my ‘pinnacle of vulnerability’ had brought me, I looked at my…

I Got Tested Again.

Hey Vulnerabites, This is it! The last part of My Trilogy… You’ll need to read this first and then this… so that you’ll be able to savor what happens here… Go read those and I’ll be here waiting for you… ************************************************************ “It looks like you have cleared the virus to a negative level.” SELAH. I…

It’s About Time!

Hey Vulnerabites… >>>> A commercial break from that heavy heavy trilogy I”m unpacking..lol.<<<< I’m grateful for the precious soul in a young woman named “D”. She’s been the silent partner nudging me along with accountable texts like, “Umm when’s the next blog coming?”  I’d hit her with the “Girl, I’ve been busy,” line. And she’d give me…
