Welcome to The Neurosis Files, a running commentary on all that vexes and amuses me. I hope you’ll come out and play.

A bit about me: My hobbies are steeping in negativity, embracing victimhood, and choosing linens for my death bed. Presently I’m suffering a mid-life crisis — my third so far. I can never find jeans that fit right; I speak of it often. I spend my days making fun of golf carts, railing at insurance companies and obsessing over my hair. My chief talent is reacting to petty irritations as crises.

I am in the process of completing a humorous memoir and am seeking a publisher. My stories appear in “The Battered Suitcase,” “Mused Magazine,” “Tryst,” “Ducts” and “The Connotation Press,” which named me one of their top nine contributors in 2012. I’ve also been a frequent contributor to Humor Outcasts and The Yahoo Contributor Network. One of my blog posts was a semi-finalist in the Humor Press Awards; four others received honorable mentions.

I can be contacted at juneohara65@gmail.com.

    Excellent! LOL re “Writing for Dummies.”

    You’ve just about covered all my neurosis, excluding golf carts and insurance companies. I like to rail at lobbyists and special interest groups. I’m also convinced my dogs are working for the CIA.

  2. Love your writing. I’ll be back for more.

    I found you through Redhead Ranting/Tribal Blogs and I truly fell in love with you when I read the following line:

    My chief talent is reacting to petty irritations as crises.

    I have three kids who are sucking the life out of me this summer, but when I am back in full force come September I will be back to stalk you full-time. Until then I’ll have to do this in between swimming, gymnastics and cries of “I’m bored!”

    Nice to meet you, June!

      Cardiogirl, your comment made my day, if not my week. With three little ones, God bless you. I’d love to see you again. And, I must say, stalking gets a bad rap.

    Where have you been hiding? Found you on SheWrites at midnight last night. You are perfect in my book. Will subscribe immediately.

    • June O'Hara says:

      Scrollwork, that’s one of the nicest compliments I can remember getting. Thank you. I’ll try to keep you smiling.

    I can completely relate to your inability to find jeans that fit. It’s been a lifelong quest of mine to find jeans that fit well. I’m getting closer, but there’s always something that’s off about each pair. I guess there’s worse things in life…although sometimes it’s harder to imagine that’s the case when staring into the dressing room mirror.

    You have a great sense of humor, I look forward to reading more!

  6. June O'Hara says:

    Carly, problems worse than the jeans issue only exist if you choose to acknowledge them. Seriously, though, it is a real pain!

    I’m thrilled to have you here. Hope to see you again soon.

    I would very much like for you to send me an advance copy of your memoirs as I cannot seem to finish — or even begin — the literary masterpiece my mother gave me last Christmas. Perhaps your story, more than any other since Christ’s, can reintroduce me to my former love of reading books.

    “I believe in my work and am determined to see it published.”

    Man, did I come to the right place tonight.

    Thank you.

  9. June O'Hara says:

    I’m so glad, Alexandra. This shit’s not easy.

    And by the way, I’m thrilled that you’re reading my blog.

    Okay, I found the little envelope and subscribed. Yeah, I’m supposedly “visual” … yet somehow missed it there at the top of your blog where it says SUBSCRIBE. Love what I’m reading here so far and look forward to more! (And that book title rocks!)

    So I think I have read every single post on this blog. It was a most interesting read, and I am now subscribed. Often, I laughed at the reactions and the perspective you have for life’s daily grind. Great blog.

      Elijah, I’m absolutely thrilled that you enjoyed reading my blog. I can’t tell you how happy it makes me. I’ll check out yours as well!
