About Me

40 but a kid at heart. I like all things weird. I have two teenagers and a husband. I grew up in Renton, WA and didn’t go too far! My training is as a nurse but I don’t know what I want to do when I grow up still. Currently unemployed and looking (My position got eliminated after 8 years). I am sarcastic and I try to make fun out of “the suck” as I call it. I stopped drinking alcohol 3 years ago and not ashamed at all! I’m a bit of a goof and spend a lot of time “snapping” my life on Instagram. Follow me if you like! Some stuff will bore you, but it’s me! I love Jesus and Francis Chan is my current favorite leader! I don’t judge others beliefs or life’s and I enjoy learning about them. I’m more concerned by someone’s character than their choice of partner, faith, color, or place of origin....so on! I support human beings.

I suffer from a rare disease called Chronic Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (google it sometime 🤪) and both Trigeminal and Occipital neuralgia. I have Degenerative Joint Disease as well, yipeee!

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 believe deserve. My first love was ballet

Favorite Things

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

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.

Things I like or collect

Strange medical stuff or antique medical stuff like books and old bottles. Interesting ceramics, usually animals and usually whatever pops out to me when I’m out hunting for stuff. Vintage Needle point. Old military stuff (my Dad is a retired Captain in the US Navy). Enamel pins usually with funny sayings. Religious and Iconic art I find so beautiful. I own many Virgin Mary/Madonna depictions from other countries as well as Rosary’s.

Comment: Loving the so cute puppies! Which I love puppies and have one, 4 month old Chihuahua named Jasper. He is the sweetest & I love him so much! You say you have DJD & nerve problems. That's terrible to have & I feel for you! About as bad as MS & the Degenerative disc disease I have. Plus other not so pleasant illnesses & I truly hate it & wish things were different. I was just at my MS doctors today & got my daily does chemo. So much fun! Not ! But I have to have it every day, for the next 3 weeks. Thank god my doctor is close by! You take care & I hope you're doing okay.

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.
