Where To Start…

If you’re visiting for the first time, it can be a little overwhelming to get caught up on my story.  I get that… it’s been a long road, and it gets longer every day.

I would recommend starting here for a general timeline of events, and then moving onto the actual posts.

As for those, if you just want a sampling of what life has been like over the past almost-five years of this journey, I’ve listed those that I think are important, funny, or informative below.  It’s still a long list, but it’s only a fraction of the 300+ posts I’ve put out there over the past few years!

Welcome to Thunderdome!  🙂

Summertime Sadness

A safe space where I discuss the racing thoughts in my head, personal struggles, and day-to-day activities while struggling with mental health and mood disorder issues. My personal goal is to reduce the stigma that comes with mental health and mood disorders, by talking more about it.
