I am passionate about all things Mental Health related. Plus: Early Childhood Development, Minority Studies/Hate Group Tracking, Addiction/Recovery, Juveniles/ Teens in the system, Parenting, Advocacy & much more.
I'm a single mom livin' in Oregon, diagnosed as Rapid Cycling Depressive Bipolar & CPTSD w/ D.I.D (on the Dissociation side of the spectrum). Sadly I am recovering from 15 years of narcissistic & domestic abuse, as well.
My weaknesses include (but are not limited to): being insufferable, brutally honest, obscene at times, an uncanny ability to alienate people, & I speak w/conviction so many incorrectly assume I am unbending.
My strengths: I'm a life long learner. I have extensive theoretical & practical knowledge on many subjects, I could empathize w/ a serial killer (I won't) b/c I'm that empathetic, I take accountability, I'm willing to change my views, I address behaviors not character, I'm incredibly self aware, and I will always listen.
I take an active role in my recovery and mental health management, so I'm here for me as much as for you💚
