People who equate truth with fact are missing the point.


More like furious with occasional episodes of rage, but as post titles go, “Angry” seems a little less like something written by the scary old woman who won’t let the neighborhood kids play in her yard, right?

So, I’m pissed off in an extreme way and I intend to express that here. If you . . . → Read More: Angry

AnonyBlogger: Feeling Normal

Wait, what’s this? Two AnonyBlogger posts in a row? Isn’t that, like, cheating?

Yes. Yes, it is. But honestly, with Carter’s psychotic symptoms increasing by the day, and being without Brian last week while he worked in Japan, plus all the ordinary tasks of life, I’m pretty relieved to have something to post that . . . → Read More: AnonyBlogger: Feeling Normal

AnonyBlogger: Difficult Decisions

I am incredibly pleased to host this story, the first of many (I hope!) stories about loving (and struggling to love) a person who is living with mental illness.

Please be generous with your comments and be sure this blogger knows she’s not alone in this experience!

Getting Kinda Crowded

I started a blog post on Saturday. It was about how I feel like someone is standing on my chest, how sometimes the weight of the world descends upon me and I feel suffocated. All of that seemed very important until yesterday when, for the first time, Carter opened up about his psychotic world: . . . → Read More: Getting Kinda Crowded

We all need to keep our money somewhere…

When Carter was in pre-school, I loved it when the older kids had in-service days but Carter still went to school. It was (and still is) so nice to be with Jacob, Abbie, and Spencer without Carter constantly pulling at my attention!

The day in question was during Carter’s first year of pre-school so . . . → Read More: We all need to keep our money somewhere…

Just Say No

…to remodeling your kitchen.

Hate the layout? Need an island? Ugly cabinets got you down? You have three options:

Learn to love it the way it is. Move. Burn the house down.

That’s it. Those are the only options.

Not convinced?

You’re not as smart as you look.

Or perhaps you have the same . . . → Read More: Just Say No

Southern New Mexico: How Not to See It

In the fall of 2001, the tiny private school that Jacob and Abbie attended had an all-school, three-day field trip to southern New Mexico.

Let’s get something straight right off the top: I love New Mexico. Seriously love it. There is so much that’s beautiful here, but in-between one beautiful and another beautiful? A . . . → Read More: Southern New Mexico: How Not to See It

Tears and Triumph – Mostly Tears, Though

I went to Carter’s end-of-the-school-year awards luncheon last week and it put me in a thoughtful mood. This year has been one for the record books. I expect we’ll look back on it as the period during which we lost our emotional virginity. Interestingly, while Carter is probably more obviously unwell than he was . . . → Read More: Tears and Triumph – Mostly Tears, Though

Blisters and Bad Hats

I’d like to introduce you to Brian in a new way. You know how I’m always, “Oh, my husband is the bomb! He’s so smart and funny and awesome!”

He’s also a dumbass.

A redheaded man who lives on the high desert Southwest who goes outside to work in the yard for 3+ . . . → Read More: Blisters and Bad Hats

I’m Full of Surprises

Surprise! It’s not as good as a pony or one of those giant rainbow lollipops, but still, a surprise is a surprise, right?

I’ve been waiting on pins and needles to get moved into my new blog home to unveil two new features here at No Points for Style. The first is a blog . . . → Read More: I’m Full of Surprises
