I love bunnies. I am a nerd and a geek. I love math. I love star trek and star wars. I love F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I love Big Bang! I love video games! I love arts and crafts, especially upcycling. I love internet memes. I want to understand and explore the world. I want to travel. I want to find myself. I want to laugh and smile. I want to love and be loved. I want to be happy. I have a bizarre sense of humor. I have changed my career path 3 times (generally after an immense amount of time and money has been put into educating myself for that career area). I lived in Australia for 4 months. I was a cheerleader. I played soccer and softball. I have worked as a server, in retail, as a framer at Michael's Arts and Crafts, and as a mentor. I wish I could conquer the world. I wish I could have it all. I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, but I do not let it define me. I am strong and smart. Basically, I am an awesome person to know!
I don’t talk about my illness so that you will feel sorry for me. I talk about it so you will know what I’m going through, why I am the way I am. I don’t want your pity. I want your understanding.
And sometimes, I talk about it because I had a bad day and just like you, talking about the bad thing makes me feel better. I just so happens I have a lot of bad days and my illness is usually at the core of it.
