I have no idea what it’s like to live a normal, average life. Raised on what was referred to as a ‘permanent vacation,’ I travelled with my grandparents through most of the contiguous United States, living out of a camper and seeing some of the most amazing sights this country has to offer.
Later as an adult I was diagnosed with a congenital brain condition called Chiari Malformation, which I endured decompression surgery for, and now need to deal with on a daily basis.
Through all this I have accumulated a vast amount of knowledge and education on an array of artistic, scientific, and diy skills that have helped me deal with my anxiety and depression in healthy, constructive ways.
I love movies, manga, anime, and video games. I make pies at Christmas, and take too many pictures of my cats. I have been in therapy since I was four. I believe that books are one of the reasons I am still alive.
Content warning. I will be openly talking about medical and mental health, childhood abuse, trauma, and the all around craziness that has been my life. I will not sugar coat my words. I will not blur my experiences to make others comfortable. I suppose in a way, this is me making a line in the sand. Doing what is right for me, not what is comfortable for others. If this sounds like it will disturb you, then this blog is not for you.
