BB2G World Tour: Who Am I? - I'm Awesome
bandbacktogether: This post is part of the BB2G Bringing the Happy Back World Tour. July’s prompt is to define yourself. “I Am Me.” Now, who are YOU? I hate coffee, gum, salad, and water. I love sour cream chicken enchiladas. Read More
bandbacktogether: Dear world – here’s the deal – if you’ve never had a special needs child, do not tell us how to manage ours. Telling us to spank our kids when they’re “bad” is ridiculous. Telling us “Oh I know! My two-year old does that,” isn’t helpful. Because your two-year old? Will grow out of that behavior. My kid may not. Read More
Why I Don't Like To Drive
bandbacktogether: You’ve accused me of not going places unless I have to. I used to love to drive. Not that I was very good at it, but I enjoyed it. Long drives were the norm, and I had no issue driving two hours one way just to hang out. I now make light of my lack of driving with jokes about dragging along two small children and the soaring price of gas, but that’s only part of the...
bandbacktogether: my dad was, and still is, a serious control freak. he wants everything to go his way, all the time, forever. His need to control + my rebellious streak – any display of love or affection = a seriously fucked up child. Read More
BB2G World Tour: Who Am I? - Defining Amy
bandbacktogether: I am a mom, a daughter, a friend and an ex-wife. I am a survivor of my brother’s suicide, and a survivor of my parents’ suicide attempts. I have less understanding of why my husband left than why my brother did. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to have a serious relationship again. I love to laugh and I love to listen to music when it’s really really loud. Read More
Pick Pick Pick
bandbacktogether: I remember when it started. I was eight years old, bored, sitting in my third grade classroom. I vaguely remember a math book being open. I was a bright kid; school was always easy for me. By that age, I was day-dreaming through many of my lessons. Read More
Feeling All Sprat-Like
bandbacktogether: I grew up in a house where thinness was next to godliness. You could never be too thin. Jutting hipbones or razor-sharp clavicles were a source of pride. A badge of fucking honor. Unfortunately for me, my mother was convinced that I was fat. I went on my first diet at six. Read More
Band Back Together: On Being A Hermit →
bandbacktogether: Not too long ago, I sat talking to one of my many online friends. I noted that I hadn’t written anything in quite awhile (I write erotica/porn as a hobby … yes I’m a perv, hush). Told her I hadn’t felt any strong inspiration or desire to write. She said that’s one of the things that happens when…

If you, or anyone else you know, is a victim of child of child abuse, please call the National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-4-A-CHILD. it’s 1971. my parents are going out to dinner, and they ask our next door neighbor to babysit me. he insists that i call him *grandpa* al.

Terrified We Won't Have a Baby
bandbacktogether: When my husband and I started trying for a baby almost fifteen months ago, we were hopeful. I had a feeling it would take a while because I’d been on the Pill for over ten years, but I still figured we’d be announcing a pregnancy in no time. I bought Taking Charge of Your Fertility (the trying to conceive Bible) and a thermometer and started charting my temps to make sure...
I'm Gay, And I Wouldn't Want It Any Other Way
bandbacktogether: Well no big surprise there, according to my family, all my friends, my teachers, and anyone who has met me. I wouldn’t call myself a flamer, but I am not very inconspicuous about being me. Read More
I Am Me
bandbacktogether: This post is part of the BB2G Bringing the Happy Back World Tour. July’s prompt is to define yourself. “I Am Me.” Contribute, yo. This is my first time here at Band Back Together. Contributing, I mean. Most of the time I’m a lurker, but not anymore. I’ve worked up the courage to try and define myself for the BB2G World Tour. So here goes… Read More
