About the Author and This Blog in a Nutshell

Hello readers. First, thank you, kindly, for your interest. This blog is about my personal journey through severe mental illness and my continual struggle to achieve some amount of normality in my life. In this about page, you will find some brief background information information, about myself, the author. While it won’t be comprehensive, it should give you a general idea about where this belong stands currently and where it is going in the future.

Current mental health diagnoses: Schizophrenia and Bipolar I. (No, not schizoaffective.) Substance abuse disorder. I’ve been sober for 5 months after literally almost dying from an alcohol related disorder.

I have a college degree. I have a Bachelor’s in mathematics. I’m a a female in my twenties. I’m on disability, but I keep attempting to go back to work. I’m stubborn. I never give up, and I suppose I never will.

I hope to share my thoughts and feelings in my own “unique” way, as I pursue my ultimate goal. My ultimate goal being to hold down a real full time job like everyone else. Something with enough money to pay my own bills and enough money left over to go out maybe once a week. I’ll need benefits too. I want to get off social security. I want to be fully functioning member of society. I don’t need glitz and and glam. Mundane is just fine for me.
