I love doing partial drag queen makeup when I go to shows and I used to be into doing eyes, but I’ve gotten lazy. No, I’m not lazy, just not sleeping well. Now my go-to look is Tarte BB primer, mascara, and a dramatic lip.
When I saw Eboni on MasterChef with her unmoving glitter lipstick (and gorgeous hair and face AND she’s an addiction counselor who raised a baby with her husband in a car during the Chicago winter at the age of 16), I needed that lewk. Trent suggested I go to Instagram.
Most of their colors are sold out or not featured on their website, so I started with Ace of Spades and their Magic Stick.
The white base does remind me a bit of glue in texture and smell and how it rubbed off with water. But if glue is what it takes to have lip glitter, so be it. Then you pat on the fine glitter with your fingers. It can be messy. If you have extremely miniscule makeup glitter, you could use it with this base. I took a photo with a face mask on but it may be too frightening so just imagine me looking like the woman above.
You can be a spoonie and still sparkle. And then everyone can say, you look so good! And not know how many painkillers you’re on.
Reddit agrees so it must be true. Cary has a strong personality so maybe there’s something in this for her long-term; sorry, not gonna say it’s a healthy, equal partnership, but if she signed up for some other agreement, do you. She has also been married twice before which is a statistical outlier for her age group. R
eally jealous of her sex life. “If we’re only having sex once a day, you know there’s a problem.” Or not? Maybe I’m sane if Mark’s behavior is a huge turn-off for me.

Unexplained infertility can be frustrating, but so can your brother giving you a hysterectomy while you’re pregnant.

A therapist’s life is equal parts counsel and curiosity. You send a patient on a path and wonder where that path will take them.
Therapy only works when we have a genuine desire to know ourselves as we are. Not as we would like to be.
A boy’s illusions are no basis for a man’s life.
We have a deep-seated need to interact with our children. It helps us discover who we are.
Every creative act has its destructive consequence.
What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others lives beyond us.
Even the worst of us deserve therapy.
Crossing boundaries is different than violating them.
From Hannibal’s own therapist, Bedelia du Maurier:
Some psychiatrists are so hungry for insight that they may try to manufacture it.
The traumatized are unpredictable because we know we can survive.
It’s nice when someone sees us…Or has the ability to see us. It requires trust. Trust is difficult for you.
I had my monthly check-in with a nurse practitioner in my urology practice. She is due next month and has IC too! So we recommended nightlights and motion-activated LEDs to one another and I felt a bit better that one night she decided to pee herself because the bathroom was too far away. I’ve been tempted.
She played around with my insurance and prescriptions a little so I can stay on them as long as possible once 2018 rolls around. I got more samples of Myrbetriq. Myrbetriq is Class C so I could switch to over-the-counter Oxytrol patches when I’m trying to conceive. Since I started vaping CBD oil two weeks ago, she suggested waiting until six weeks when Myrbetriq reaches peak effectiveness, and then going off for two weeks (to get medication out of my system) and see if I notice a difference. If I don’t, there’s no point in continuing Myrbetriq and all states should legalize medical marijuana. As for the hellish periods, the APN says if they continue for two more cycles to check in and we may discontinue Elmiron for a month. I’ll go to the urologist again in late December and from there, visits are biannual.
Once again, there was only one other person in the room without gray hair and they were helping an older patient fill out an intake form.
