Highly Sensitive PersonTalk-Therapy Scribblings

Today is my day off at work, and I could make better use of it than just sit at home by the heater and complain. But it’s the hurricane season in the Atlantic and the weather is pretty crazy today. The cold front has brought dark clouds, occasional heavy showers, hail, and the wind, so […]
