I suffer from severe manic depressive disorder. So I don't leave my room very much and when I do leave the house I take my daughter almost everywhere I go. Swapbot is one of the few happy places I have in life.
Please do not send extras unless its specific to what is in my wish list.
Personal status; Age 43, widowed since 2012, unattached.
I live not too far from death valley in 29 palms! We are home to the marines desert training base. Its extremely hot here in the summer! It can get up to 127, well that's the hottest I've been in. I live in a small town with light traffic and blue skies! Palm Springs is 50 miles down the hill where I went to high school.
I stay to myself. I've had 2 right side strokes and two suicide attempts in July 2015, my heart stopped and I was on life support. So I should be dead. For the past two years I've had a terrible stutter, but its almost gone. I have a frontal lobe brain injury that leads to some drastic behavior, but its getting better! I'm only working my management job that pays my rent, I can't go back into any stressful job.
Since I've had two nervous breakdowns and have come out of them I can say to those who are feeling like they've had enough of life, tomorrow is a new day. Go to a crisis center to talk to someone and get set up with a therapist. Asap. Two years ago for me was crappy. But here I am!!!!maybe things aren't perfect, but they're good. I'm on a very fixed income, but my xbf keeps me supplied with postage and craft supplies.
I make ATC cards. I did a quick count, I have around 3500 cards from all over the world. I have around 1500 inchies and around 300 twinchies. Omg! Add to that about 150 skinny cards and I've done more than 50 matchbox swaps! I need professional help lol! I do not rate based on extras received. In fact, I do t need extras. I have to much. Although, anything sent is appreciated
