Finally rewriting the About Me page, so I decided to write up my bio. It’s longer than I want on the page, so I shall post it here & link back. :) It feels a little Oliver Twist (before he meets the Artful Dodger), so I would like to say at my core I am a happy person. That is who I believe I truly am. That person just gets overwhelmed sometimes by the other voices waging war inside me. Also, this is meant to outline my mental health experience rather than a full life story. I have lots of funny, happy, good memories. Stick around long enough & I might tell you some!
I was born in the mid-seventies to a couple in rural Alabama, but my story doesn’t start there. I was conceived in drama. I’ll save the details for another time, but even before I knew the truth of my own origin story, I believed we absorb emotions in the womb. Science backs me up, so it seems I was actually born to be sad (& anxious & irritable & angry).
