Update on Taylor - part II


I've been rather reluctant to write this update.  Not because I don't think it is important enough to be shared, but because this update actually hurts a little bit more than the first update.  For those of you really needing to catch up, you can read from the very beginning by clicking right here.

If you want me to be honest with you, I'm pretty sure the Taylor I once knew no longer exists.  When I see Taylor in the hallway, it's just not the same.  The person who would once stop and talk to me now is just focused on whatever task they are trying to accomplish.  When Taylor needs something to help complete a job duty, Taylor speaks as little as possible.  

Truth be told, I miss Taylor.  We had some pretty cool conversations and Taylor had an interesting personality.  I would like to think the Taylor I once knew still exists somewhere deep down inside.  Why do I think that?

Even though I'm medicated, I don't think my personality changed.  However, if you really know me, I would really like for you to tell me what you really think.  My medication is great (in my opinion) and I truly like how I feel when I am on it, but I also know myself and was very mindful to tell my doctor or any changes I noticed.  

When it comes to Taylor, we just don't know what to expect anymore.  We don't know if the personality we saw early on is really Taylor or if that was medicated Taylor.  We're not sure if a reduced medicated Taylor is the person who caused the initial issue or if it was just Taylor.  There are so many questions we do not have answers to.  Unfortunately, depending on how Taylor is outside of the office, Taylor may not know either.  

Here is what I do know - it hurts me to see a person have such a drastic change.  I hope for Taylor's sake this storm doesn't last long.  But if it does, I hope Taylor's family and friends are truly there and handle Taylor with the patience and give the confidence needed to go through this.

Big body, big hair

Earlier this week, I was cruising around the twitterverse and noticed a cool shirt floating around.  The shirt said, no you cannot touch my hair.  I thought it was funny, but it is a huge thing in the natural hair community that people do not like for their hair to be touched.  I might be the weird one because it honestly doesn't bother me.  Now, just don't come up to me and touch my hair, but if you ask and I'm feeling a bit friendly (LOL), I just might let you feel these beautiful natural curls that God so graciously gave me.  

In my opinion, my hair is awesome.  However, after my transition from processed to natural, I didn't always feel that was the case.  I was so used to my hair being straight and long.  But, I just kept cutting it shorter and shorter until I eventually did the big chop and I became 100% natural.  

I guess now, I feel more confident.  As the years have passed, I've been more confident in my body and now I'm a lot more confident in my hair.…

The Outsiders

It has been too much going on in the blogging world recently.  I mean, I know that any press is good press, but this might have been too much.  Then add it on top of that, you get people who don't blog chiming in talking about you're just doing it to get free stuff or get a real job or find something to do with your spare time.  Let me answer all three of those - I've been writing in The Plus Diaries for almost five years and have proudly made 25 dollars (by accident), I do work a full-time job with great benefits, and writing is just one of the things I do in my spare time.  For you nosey people, I also do crafts, travel, and currently studying for a couple of tests in my free time.  



Blogging is supposed to be fun!  That's why I got into it in the first place.  But trust me, I salute all the wonderful bloggers out there making money off their blogs.  That's awesome to me!  You are doing what you love and making money off it?  If the quote is true and they really l…

The Big Bang

It's been a while.  It truly has been a while.  I am typically great about telling you when I am taking a blogging break, but sometimes, life just comes at your fast.  At the end of January, life came at me hella fast.  Had it not been for the one blog post I had already written and set up to post, you would not have heard from me when you did.  But, I'm getting back to my feet and feeling more and more like my normal self.  

I know what you are thinking - what happened?!  Well, that's for me to know and for you to never find out.  There are some things in my life that I would rather keep personal and this is one of those times.  I've told the people who need to know and it will go no further than that.  But, let's get one to some fun stuff.  

I still have been active on my Instagram and Twitter pages.  I promised to keep you all updated on my weight loss madness that is happening and I've been trying to do so.  I don't want to turn into one of those people w…
