About Me

38, nurse, photographer, with 2 Kids in their teens. I have lived in the Seattle Area my whole life. Married 17 years to the love of my life, my hot Ukrainian husband 😁with 2 kids (B14,G11). I have a pretty amazing job in outreach. I’m finally getting paid for talking too much (the teachers lied, it is a talent).

I suffer from a rare disease called Chronic Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (google it sometime 🤪) and both Trigeminal and Occipital neuralgia.

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. My first love was ballet

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: Thank you for the neat Snow PC. Really like it a lot! No, We don't get a whole lot of snow here really in PA. Like there in Seattle, it is hit or miss. But we sure get the frigid cold though!

Comment: thanks for the nice PC and your answers. I used to be tech savvy, then I got an Allpe computer. No more 'blue screen of death' but I depend on my neighbor's daughter when I have a problem.

Comment: I absolutely love this postcard, thank you! I didn't know Betsy was a shortening of Elizabeth. You're right though, it would be cool to see some more 'old school' names come back into fashion :)

On Sunday it will be over a week and I still haven't received my swap from Airing of grievances notecard #9 so please get the letter out even it's late I don't mind waiting but if you don't and the 2 weeks are up I am going to have to give you a 1 rating

I know! But it was so good. Definitely one of those books that stays with you.

Ooh, I love that book Sarah's Key. So utterly heartbreaking. And inspiring.
