Dangerous - Depeche Mode
I have to say I have been stuck on this song for the last couple of days. Wish I could get it for my iShuffle. Of course, that's a whole other issue!

Spots of Brightness
I've had some dark days as of late. Having PTSD isn't fun and the more you get triggered the worse it gets. But I have been going on the morning walks after Community Meeting. It's just around the block, but it's a nice little walk. A couple of days ago I d...

Holly Not So Jolly Christmas and Beyond
Well, Christmas was actually very nice though Christmas Eve was one of the WORST I had ever had. Jason was a total ass and yelling about Ajay and pulling all kinds of crap. He got angry with Cassi because she screamed and cussed him out about how he was tre...

It's a Relatively Holly Jolly Start to the Holidays
Thanksgiving at my mother's ended up being a lot nicer than I expected. It was me, the kids, Nancy, her boyfriend, Tim and Taylor an of course my mom. Tim pretty much stayed out of everyone's way. That was for the best. Of course, he didn't look very good e...

Dang I'm tired and I have more stuff to do around here for the holidays! This year has been so so and I can't say I'm not looking forward to the end of it. But this holiday hasn't been a very jolly one.I have moments of really getting into the holiday spirit and then it's just gone again. It just happens considering what things have been going on around here. I am looking forward to Christmas Eve and Christmas day, but doing the stuff I usually do every year was more a chore than fun. :-( Maybe I should just sleep the day away! :-P We'll see!  Hope you all are having a great holiday season!!

There is NO Excuse for Abuse
Well, I saw this coming for awhile. My friends Scott and Kathleen are heading for a divorce. To be honest they have for a couple or years now. They were tied financially, of course, but there were things going on that I should have gotten more involved with...

Gearing Up for the Holidays
Well, what can I say? Monday night I took a bath to do some reading - yes the tub is my reading place! LOL! I was reading "I, Alex Cross" by James Patterson. I was about half way through it when I picked up. My mistake was not putting it down. The farther I...

Story
Tagline
I'm Not Here! You Just Think I Am!
Introduction
I have loved writing all my life. It was a way to deal with the world which I found unnerving. I loved my friends and I make lasting friendships. I was married and had two beautiful children almost 6 years apart exactly. Unfortunately the marriage ended, though it was for the best. My son Jordan and my daughter Cassi are still the loves of my life. They might not be little anymore, but they are still my babies.

I also suffer from bipolar II and PTSD. The bipolar is under control. The PTSD I am working on. I am soon to seek the help of a trauma therapist. It's not a process I am looking forward to, but it's the only way to help me reconcile the past and truly move forward into a great future where I can use my experiences to help others as a Peer Support Specialist.

Basically, I am the kind of person that is what you see is what you get. I'm a very open and honest person. If you have questions, just shoot me a message and ask!
Bragging rights
I passed my High School Proficiency test and didn't have to go back to school for 12th Grade - Yay! No Geometry and Chemistry! Though had I not has so much anxiety I think I would have gotten into chemistry. I also have two kids, I have finished three novellas, but no where to go with them yet. I have also had Gastric Bypass and I have lost over 200 pounds!
Education
  • San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts
    Writing and Drama, 1984 - 1986
    I loved my school though I did not enjoy going to school. I loved every minute of being in my Drama classes and Writer's Workshop. I did a lot of short story writing back then! I made some good friends though lost contact with most. There weren't many cliches to worry about. Everyone was too busy working on their own projects and no one would turn down someone if they needed help with anything. I remember doing a cold reading for a friend in drama because their partner didn't show up for their scene. That was fun! It's a time in my life I won't forget.
