More Popular Than Getting Overwhelmed With Gratitude

This week has been busy behind the scenes, which is why I only posted one other time after Monday although if you missed out on my husband’s awesomeness, you should probably feel sad.

The family in Monday’s post were overwhelmed in a wonderful way by your thoughts, comments, shares and love. I put some people in touch with the mom and with other friends to help support young gay teens growing up in conservative homes and towns. I’ve been emotional and excited and overwhelmed myself, which is not very different from most weeks of my life except there weren’t 2700+ Facebook shares to go with it.

What I’m trying to say is…


Also, this is why I’m a writer, not a graphic artist.

When I’m not getting overwhelmed by the Internet, I’m becoming more popular by reading and writing elsewhere.

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. Things on the internet don’t make me cry very often, but the secret Happiness Happens story made me tear up. So did the 21 pictures… I have to admit, mainly because of all the cat-related ones.

  2. The article about woman over 50 with eating disorders is very timely for me. I recently spent a few days with a woman in her mid-50s who behaved like a anorexic college girl. I kind of thought that I was crazy, but now I see that it’s possible [probable?] that she is suffering from disordered eating. Thanks for the link.

  3. I assumed that nothing posted on the internet could get though to my cold black heart today. And then there were firemen! with kittens! Ugh. Stupid kittens making me cry.
