My first (and only) attempt at poetry. Decided to post it on my old site since it doesn’t really fit my usual content and is a one-off. https://thatnewcrunchymom.wordpress.com/2017/03/25/love-war/
I’ve often heard people talking about what they deserve in relationships and how they don’t know how to get it. So I’ve written a post on how to do just that!
I don’t normally talk about depression (though I do talk about anorexia and NICU PTSD), but after a conversation with my husband last night, we decided this post would be helpful to many and worth writing. And so, here we are.
Here are 5 pieces of advice for helping your spouse through a period of depression!
Hey there folks! 🙂
This is another video collaboration with the Relationship Blogger, Raymond Baxtor. I’ve really enjoyed doing this video series with him and I expect we may do more in the future. If you have a question that you’d like one of us to answer, please leave me a comment in my comment’s section and I will do my best to get a response made. We really appreciate all the positive feedback and support we’ve received while doing this series.

I have a friend in the UK who is a recovered Porn addict. I find his story to be extremely interesting because he grew up religious and no longer considers himself to be, so his motivation for not using porn is not tied to religion. He’s written about it elsewhere, but this past week I asked him for an interview and he was thrilled to have a chance to answer some questions. He’s an open book to most people and you can find a lot of his story on his blog. We’ve worked together before when I’ve written for him on recovering from Purity culture, and discussed how we’ve lived a bit on opposite poles. I wanted to learn more about Porn addiction, so he’s answered 15 questions of mine.
