I come from a decent sized family….(1-out of 6 children)…My parents ,God love them ,are still will us on earth….I have three great sisters…and two cool as hell brothers…(My brothers and I are the youngest of all 6,and we are also Triplets ,and I am THE youngest ,of all of them…..I am 45 , was born a Midwestern gal….and henceforth , here in the Midwest ,I now reside…
At 3 weeks of age , I was diagnosed with hydrocephalus..(which is “water-on-the-brain”).The symptoms were life threatening ,back in those days….the prognosis was given little or no hope for recovery .(“no guarantees”,the doctors told my parents)I have had 10 revisions to date (surgeries) in which the surgeons insert a shunt…)You wouldn’t know it by looking at me that I had this , other than certain characteristics people knew to look for ,and a “lazy eye”….
I graduated High School …in 1995 with a GED….I was married ,and had two kids….I still “have the kids” ,not the marriage….did that for 9-10 years…I had been homeless before … raped , and abused….
I grew up as a Methodist, and became Eastern Orthodox in 2001….and haven’t looked back since!
I started blogging o r writing in 8th grade English ,because of a required assignment….ever since that time ,I haven’t stopped writing…..People have insisted that I should , would ,or could write a book of some sort ,merely based on the tidbits I had written in the past.
Some are quite humorous , and light-hearted ,others being deeply profound and provocative….I wasn’t into writing fiction……because there’s so much that is fiction in writing ,that reality for me , has to exist plainly ,as it is…..
