My original purpose in starting this blog was to try and deal with the pain and betrayal I felt after learning that the man I loved was married. I’m still dealing with that, but it is not the only thing in my life. I don’t want to let what he did to me define who I am. So, with that in mind, here are a few other things about me . . .
I have dealt with depression my entire life, and I’ve only recently discovered that writing actually helps. So I’ll be dealing with that some here, as well as my ongoing attempts to figure out what exactly it is that I want out of life, over and above a true and meaningful love, of course.
I am an artist. In the past, that has been the means I’ve used to deal with my depressive episodes. Recently, I’ve had a major artistic block, and I haven’t created much of anything new this year. One or two paintings, that is all. I’d really like to get through this block, as I miss the outlet.
I’m a mama, a friend, a voracious reader and basically a geek. I’m loyal, intense and I can be overly emotional.
I have a sneaking suspicion that I am having some sort of a life crisis. I’m definitely questioning things, from my past as well as my future.
I’m much more complex than anything I’ve written here.
