I’m 30. I’ve been married. I’ve also been divorced. I used to be Mormon, but I’m not anymore. I don’t know if I believe in God or even if there is a God. I love animals, most of the time more than human beings, and Diet Coke is my drug of choice. I’m also finally in a fulfilling relationship, with both a New Zealander and a wiener dog.
I’ve dealt with mental illness for probably the last two decades. I’m currently in therapy and on a journey to help me make my way through to the other side of the past I haven’t dealt with, and learn to cope with depression and anxiety. Learning to “ride the wave” is one of those steps.
