About luckyotter

This blog is my journal. I just choose to share it with the world instead of keeping everything inside my head. I'm a recovering Borderline and have also struggled with Avoidant Personality Disorder. I also have Complex PTSD due to having been the victim of narcissistic abuse for most of my life. I write mostly about narcissism, because I was the child of a narcissistic mother, and then married to a sociopathic malignant narcissist for 20 years. But there's a silver lining too. In some ways they taught me about myself. This blog is about all that. Not all my articles will be about NPD, BPD or other personality disorders or mental conditions. I pretty much write about whatever's on my mind at the moment. So there's something for everyone here. Blogging about stuff is crack for my soul. It's self therapy, and hopefully my insights and observations may help others too.

Spring repotting and planting.

A few of the smaller plants on my porch.  The newly repotted money tree is on the right. It’s still early, but I think the frosts are over.   It was a pretty day so I headed over to Lowe’s … Continue reading

Everything Old is New Again, Ancient Hieroglyphics Modern Emoji

Originally posted on The Tony Burgess Blog:
Hieroglyphics were ancient Egypt’s way of communicating. Emoji is how we do it on cell phones today. They both seem to be very similar ways of sharing information in symbolic form. I found…

Video Killed The Radio Star (The Buggles)

I played this one-hit-wonder nonstop when it came out in 1979.   It was definitely ahead of its time, setting the stage for the sounds of the ’80s and the MTV age.

Trump’s budget, repealing the ACA, the triumph of evil, and the rebirth of community spirit.

I absolutely hate Trump’s projected budget, as well as Trump’s Obamacare replacement, which although is nearly universally hated  not only on the left but on the right too (albeit for different reasons), is likely to pass this Thursday when Congress votes … Continue reading
