About Me

Update: I am currently going through a work up for an autoimmune disease and have not been feeling well. It’s pretty overwhelming. Please be patient with me. I try to check my messages twice a week and send most things on Saturday if possible. I still work full time so I’ve had to cut back on swaps which makes me sad but I have to. Please just contact me if there is anything you feel isn’t right or doesn’t come. Thank you and I appreciate your understanding ❤️

I’m 41 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. I currently work as an Anticoagulation nurse. I stopped drinking alcohol 4 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! @mermaidsandmailboxes I am trying to become the worlds biggest mermaid postcard collector! You can hear me on Episode 97 of the Postcardist Podcast (if you love postcards you should subscribe) https://thepostcardist.com/e97-mermaid-tales/

I am a Christian. I have been a photographer since I was 15 years old and enjoy candid and portrait photography along with manipulating angles and creative photography

I collect a lot of things, mermaids (send the postcards my way lol) in particular but I love old medical items, religious iconic art, interesting ceramics, enamel pins and weird stuff in general. I talk too much about serial killers (sorry not sorry) and Deadliest Catch (I talk too much in general). I’m obsessed with all things Hawaii because I don’t have headaches there and I LOVE coconut everything. Anatomy and science are AWESOME. I like trivia and memorizing historical stuff.

My Etsy Wishlist https://www.etsy.com/people/betsykiri/favorites/wishlist?ref=profile

I don’t do judgement... 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 Trigeminal neuralgia, plus neuropathy. 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. Mental Health Matters!

Hobbies

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: Hi Betsy! Thank you for the pretty pc and share! Your work sounds awful with the drama - are the folks younger or older? Either way it would stink to be in the middle of all of it! I hope things improve - for some it is harder than other to work remotely! I love it and feel like I get more done but I know a few people that are missing the social side of being in the office, so it's not for everyone but still folks need to try to get along and not drag others into their BS! All the Best! Hugs and Happy Swapping! ;)

Comment: Thanks for the nice PC. I’m going to have to visit the Black Hills Central when I get back to IL. I watched my share of TV series when I was younger but have gotten away from it. I pretty much only watch the news now.

Comment: Thank you for the card! I didn't have cable growing up either; I was always so jealous because the other kids would talk about Disney Channel and Nickelodeon, and I still rented VHS from the library. Streaming is a good equalizer. :-) I hope you're doing well and staying safe!
