My name is Angie and I’m the mother of two adult daughters. I am co-parenting my autistic grandson with his mama, Older Daughter (I write semi-anonymously to protect Ben’s privacy) I, Older Daughter and Ben live together in one house that is ruled by King Ben. Gramma & Mommy are his loyal subjects.

I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse as well as domestic abuse from my alcoholic (ex)husband of 20+ years. I occasionally have problems with PTSD from the abuse and clinical depression because… life and also heredity.

On top of that, or slithering through it, I am also disabled with Fibromyalgia. Fibro brings it’s friends Fibro Fog, Insomnia, IBS and Plaque Psoriasis to play along. I also have problems with gravity, so I fall down a lot. Inanimate objects suddenly jump into my path.

I am a voracious reader of books and eater of cheese. I like to dance with my cart while in the grocery store. Sarcasm is my primary language. I am a Myers-Briggs INFP, a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), an Empath and a Pisces… I feel.

Bottom line, I’m kind of a mess. A generally happy mess, but a mess all the same. My blog is part journal, part rant space with a little attempt at education mixed in.

I’m a pragmatic eternal-optimist with a touch of cynicism.

  1. Hi 🙂
    I hope you don’t mind me reaching out in a comment — I couldn’t find a way to contact you privately (you can always delete this comment…)
    I noticed that your Gravatar doesn’t link to your blog. This makes it more difficult for others to find you. Please take a look at my blog post linked below, which explains the easy steps you can take to fix this 🙂
    Happy blogging!

  2. I know what it’s like to live with chronic ill health. You are not alone and there are people out there who do understand. I’ve been there, myself, which is why I’m now reaching out to others in sharing something that is helping me (and thousands of others around the globe), tremendously to recover. Please check it out on my recent post. There is hope. Wishing you well.
