I have a mental illness. I suffer from depression and anxiety. I blog about it and my other interests as a coping mechanism and to let others know that they are not alone.
I also have several chronic physical ailments that I may write about from time to time (arthritis, diabetes, hypothyroidism among them).
I am a science fiction fan. I read it, I watch it, I breathe it, I go to conventions to hang out with others like me. I met my fannish family at my first Worldcon in 1995 in Glasgow. I’ve been smitten ever since.
I’m a geek. I’m a gamer(table top and computer: D&D, Star Wars: The Old Republic, World of Warcraft, Tropico, etc), sf/f fan (reader, con-goer, media (Babylon 5, Firefly, anime)), SCA friendly (not currently active but was for many years), usenet junkie (reformed now a social media junkie), agnostic pagan, hedonist. I have a tendency towards navel-gazing and spend a lot of time processing about myself, my relationships, growing, learning.
