About Me

38, nurse, photographer, with 2 Kids in their teens. I have lived in the Seattle Area my whole life. Married 17 years to the love of my life, my hot Ukrainian husband 😁with 2 kids (B14,G11). I have a pretty amazing job in outreach. I’m finally getting paid for talking too much (the teachers lied, it is a talent).

I suffer from a rare disease called Chronic Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (google it sometime 🤪) and both Trigeminal and Occipital neuralgia.

I started writing again to combat the isolation and loneliness that comes with an invisible, chronic and very painful condition (I look fine to everyone else). I count my blessings and I refuse to give up even though many day I do want to. I try to live like I have little time left, not a lifetime to come. I try to love all people the way they feel they deserve, not the way I think they deserve. Bottom line is everyone deserves the love that we deserve. My first love was ballet.

Favorite Music

I pretty much will listen to any type of music. I like them all for different reasons. Music was pretty much my life growing up.

Favorite Books

Non Fiction True Crime (serial killers) or Medical Best Sellers Favorite books: A Few Sarah’s Key, The Alieniest, Working Stiff, Flu, Starvation Heights, Gone Girl, Miss Perigreines, The Night Circus, Defending Gary, Stiff, Spooked, Angelology, A Discovery of Witches, Relapse, North By Northwestern, What Lies Above the Clouds...so many

Favorite Movies

Goonies, The Little Mermaid, The Notebook, When a Man Loves a Woman, Atonment, The Imitation Game, A Star is Born....ALL Leonardo DiCaprio films so if you got postcards send them my way!

Favorite Television

Deadliest Catch (never miss it) Criminal Minds, How to Get Away with Murder, American Horror Story, Glee, Super Store, The Knick, Black Mirror, Mind Hunters, Jack Ryan, Project Runway Killing Fields, Monsters Inside Me, Mystery Diagnosis, pretty much anything on Discovery ID channel

Favorite Crafts

Refinishing furniture and wooden items, Rock Painting, basic painting, DIY, coloring books, slime (with my daughter), card making, shadow boxing, upcycling

What inspires me

Real, human, stories, that’s what inspires me. I am generally interested in anyone who has something they want to share about themselves. Your strange coincidence, six degrees of separation, past and present colliding, I want those stories. Your triumphs and struggles and how you fight or overcame (because that matters).

I have some of my own that I hope inspire others too.

Comment: Such a cool vintage stamp!! Thanks so much for the fun swap. I collect stickers like that, from places, I didn't even put that on my profile because I never thought of it. So that inclusion was SO awesome!!
Response: Oh good! I try to pick those out when I’m out different places here to send people 😀

Comment: I appreciated your letter, but am very sorry to hear about all you've had to deal with in regards to your neighbor, your dog, and those pesky chickens. I'd be livid. Ugh. I certainly hope that situation is taken care of and you can all put it behind you. (: I hope your upcoming weeks are much better!
Response: Thank you. He moved the chickens 🐓 I can’t hear them anymore!

On Sunday it will be over a week and I still haven't received my swap from Airing of grievances notecard #9 so please get the letter out even it's late I don't mind waiting but if you don't and the 2 weeks are up I am going to have to give you a 1 rating

SoberMermaid3 on Jul 15, 2019:

I know! But it was so good. Definitely one of those books that stays with you.

Ooh, I love that book Sarah's Key. So utterly heartbreaking. And inspiring.
