I am a woman in my 40’s (born 12-7-68) from Boise Idaho. I am an artist, a writer, a crafter, a liberal, a giver, a decent person, I am an Eclectic, a mix of Goth, bohemian, geeky nerd artist.
I always had what we believed was Chronic fatigue syndrome but in the last few years it has become obvious (and fully diagnosed by 3 different Dr’s) that I have Fibromyalgia as well as a badly deteriorated spine from having been extremely heavy for decades (over 300 by 20, over 400 by 30, top known weight of 463 and Duodenal switch weight loss surgery at 41) and I am finally realizing that many of the things I have spent years hating myself for thinking they were due to being fat and lazy is related to much maligned and little understood illness that I have had for going on 30 years. I go in and out of remission with this illness and have good times and bad.
I am married to and madly in love with a man 16 years my junior (shhhh dont tell him he thinks I am 25…JK) I try to live my life to the fullest, I love to spend time talking to a wide variety of people and hanging out with my friends doing all sorts of things, watching movies, having coffee or going out to clubs though I dont drink for health reasons.
I enjoy people who have a dark sense of humor and weird outlook on life though I try to manage to be positive overall, sadly a lot of stuff gets in the way but usually I can laugh about it at least.
I am a geek/nerd and I enjoy webcomics, role playing games and I enjoy odd little gadgets.
Everything in my life is in flux, I am changing all the time right now, I am constantly trying to redefine myself and I am not sure who I will be in the coming years. I have lost over 240 pounds before and after surgery which is changing a lot about my body and how I deal with the world.
A little about what I like:
MUSIC: I am Goth and I Love all types of Goth music, I also really love Blues Music and some Techno and industrial music and a little bit of most everything else. By the same token when I really dislike a song or artist I have no patience for them
MOVIES: I seldom watch movies but when I do I adore action adventure and intelligent comedies, I also like movies that are a bit strange and really make you think like Inception. I will watch and sometimes enjoy some “chick flicks” and a few “teen comedies” but most of them are so stupid I can’t stand them.
TELEVISION: I dont really watch television and actually have an aversion to most of it because I know how easily I can be sucked in and lose hours of my day to worthless shows.
BOOKS: I love Mysteries, comedies and odd romances as well as Sc-fi
ART: I love doing art, I paint, I craft, I make jewelry, I do Art Journaling and Art trading cards as well as other forms of art. I will do art pretty much anywhere and have done Art Journaling in coffee shops, bars and at my gym.
I have a LOT to say and twitter a lot. I hope to start adding some of that to this blog
