A woman, navigating motherhood (co-parenting with my ex-husband) of an autistic child, mental illness, fibromyalgia, and re-marriage.

Trying to make the best hand out of the cards I’ve been dealt.

I am an outsider artist, a writer/blogger, jeweler and lover of anything information (except the news).  Mom and U.S. Navy veteran, diagnosed with major depressive disorder, psychosis-NOS and PTSD.

I try to raise awareness about mental, chronic and invisible illnesses, as well as looking at health news.
