    The Best Life Yet

    @Magdlyn yeah, sometimes I feel like a defective animal, basically. I know it's silly, but I do. I feel like any ol' alley cat can have some kittens, any butterfly can make some caterpillars, and here I am, a healthy, stable, well-partnered human mammal, and I'm struggling. It's hard sometimes...

    The Best Life Yet

    @Evie Thanks for your kind reply! The spoiler button is a gem. It's in the formatting bar under the three dots near "table," if you have trouble finding it. I like the new format. At least on my laptop. It's a bit annoying to me on mobile. I still lurk like once a month or so to catch up on the...

    The Best Life Yet

    Hello! Checking in for my yearly update. Things are a bit crazy here. I'm finishing my second semester of grad school, which has been a lot, but so far not more than I can handle. I'm doing part-time, so I still have two years left after this. Dustin and I just went through our second...

    I still lurk here sometimes (hi!!) and re: the Reddit post thing, I no longer remember the details because it was like 2 or almost 3 years ago at this point, but I remember someone I am friendly with on here came to my thread with a similar thing: they'd read out in the wild somewhere a post...

    Thanks, Mags, I will definitely explore that lead! :D

    The Best Life Yet

    Thank you all for weighing in on this—that is all really helpful and optimistic information. I do tend to doing things the natural/crunchy way, and I definitely like the idea of not being at a germ-filled hospital at this point in our global health, so maybe it would work out for me. Perhaps I...

    The Best Life Yet

    Hiiii everyone! :D Thanks for the concern, Mags! I love hearing from experienced professionals about things that I know little about. I meant the forceps were to pull the IUD out myself if I couldn't get an appointment to do so. I've done a bunch of in-depth reading and apparently 80% of IUD...

    The Best Life Yet

    I said maybe I'd make another update in another year, and I guess it's been a little over that. A lot has happened again! I got accepted to my first choice of grad schools and start this coming August. It's an online program so I don't have to leave town. I'm currently finishing up my last...

    I am deeply sorry to hear of your recent hard times, and I hope you mend as cleanly and as swiftly as possible, given the messy and ill-timed circumstances.

    Thanks, folks! Yeah, it has been a wild and amazing ride. Maybe I will post another update in another year. :)

    The Best Life Yet

    Well, hello there! It's been a year since my last post. I had marked it on my calendar to see if I felt like doing an update post a year on, and when I saw it today, I thought "why not?!" I do occasionally miss you guys—after all, you were my REAL internet friends—and sometimes I still lurk...

    The Best Life Yet

    ( . . . continued from previous) About a week before Rider and I broke up, Dustin and I broke up too. Dustin had been perfect and amazing for about a month, and then one day, he lost his shit again. I told him that he had a decision to make: either he gets his shit under control (by whatever...

    The Best Life Yet

    The last thing I posted in this blog ended in ellipsis. It's been two months, and I think I'm ready to move on to a true chapter closing, with a period. After a conversation I had with Rider this morning, I decided that it would feel better for closure to tell the ending of this story. Rider...

    The story of Spork.

    Does he like to read? I just started reading this book, and it's great. It was also on e-book lend from my public library, available to read on Kindle App (so on computers, phones, etc. in the absence of a Kindle). If you can get him to read this, it might help him. I know it's been helping me...
