Let’s be friends.

Hey.  You know how sometimes you feel very alone because so many of the people in your real life are alarmingly normal and never have picnics in cemeteries or dress up taxidermy in Victorian clothes or are just not generally fucked up in the same way that you are?   Me too.  And that’s why today we’re making friends.

In the comments, leave your link to your twitter or Facebook or blog and tell us who you are in a sentence or two.  Share as little or as much as you want.

Here I am:

I’m @thebloggess on facebook, twitter, instagram and I am into dark humor, true crime and I want to be an otter when I grow up.  I am not good at life and often disappear because of my depression and anxiety.  I am too empathetic, I collect creepy dolls, I love horror and reading, I make tiny houses when I’m in anxiety spirals so I make way too many of them and then leave them in parks for kids (or spiders) to find. I once tried to rescue a decapitated human head.  I am often terrified and I am super weird and I am totally okay with that.  I can never pass this at the grocery store without making it into a very loud Lionel Richie song:

Your turn.

PS. To make it easier let’s use a hashtag on twitter today to find each other.  How about #letsbefriends?

PPS.  I totally knew it was Billy Ocean.  I was just testing you.

PPPS.  That’s a lie.  I’m a liar.

    I care deeply about everything and what everyone thinks and that sends me into anxiety spirals that I ride out watching old comedy clips and cooking. I love books, food, and taking too many pictures of everyone and everything. I once did a Target workers job for them because I’m a doormat with strangers.

I’m Jodie Utter, I blog at utterimperfection.com where I work to connect pain to pain and struggle to struggle so we’ll feel less alone inside our stories and more at home in our hearts, minds, and relationships. I write my truths and share my stories, including struggling to survive infidelity 20 years into my marriage, a real shit show that we’re now on the other side of. I talk about all of it, for the sake of my own healing and for that of others who feel all too silenced in the shame of betrayal. But don’t worry, every once in awhile, I’m funny too. But in the in between, I source my funny here on Jenny’s page. https://www.facebook.com/utterimperfection/

    I’m a Leo (if you couldn’t tell) which means I love attention. But I also have some pretty serious social anxiety. I used to love flying but now I can’t get on a plane without a xanax or two. I’d like to say I have crafting hobbies but realistically I like watching TV. I love writing but I don’t keep up with it enough. I love tiny animals and pasta. Some days I get really dark and depressed when I think I’m not doing enough to save the world.

  16. Hi! I’m Nitallica, or Nicki, if you prefer. I’m a geeky sysadmin in Alabama. I also struggle with anxiety and depression. I cope by playing video games, blaring death or black metal, and binging stuff on Netflix/Hulu. I make sure that my poor therapist earns every dollar I pay. 🙂 I have an “inappropriate” level of humor according to my mother. I love animals and abhor most humans. I’m empathetic as well, and that gets me into a lot of trouble. I have a lot of fears and am working on most of them … the rest I deal with by ingesting large amounts of vodka and/or bourbon. My blog is http://www.nickifaulk.com (I promise I’m posting an update soon…ish), my facebook is facebook.com/nitallica, and my twitter is twitter.com/nitallica.

Hi, I’m Stephanie, and at the very moment I saw this post I was thinking about how, if I ever wrote an autobiography, I’d title it, “The Call Me Quirky.” I’m not exactly sure how I’m quirky, except that I appear to retain the most random information, none of which I can call up right now, because that’s the way my brain works, as in it works really well when I don’t need it to, and kind of broken when it’s important, because I’m fun like that. And I wanted to be the first comment, because, like Elizabeth, I just had to say that Caribbean Queen is Billy Ocean.

I have a wonderful husband who supports me, but other than that, I don’t really socialize. I am currently unemployed again due to my broken brain (depression, anxiety) & my general inability to function in the “real” world (still not sure what that actually is). Think I have fibromyalgia too, which is super fun, as anybody who has chronic pain knows. I am RagdollPoet on Twitter, but I got rid of Facebook months ago, as it freaked me out too much. I also have some videos as RagdollPoet on Facebook via my old friend Hal McGee, who I really don’t see much anymore, since I live almost 2 hours away. This was way too long.

I love cats and they love me (my neighbor’s cat keeps trying to adopt me), but other than cats I feel so alone most of the time because of depression and anxiety. Even today, I’ve pretty much given up on adulting and will probably go hide in my room the rest of today playing games or reading Discworld. I have hobbies, but crippling depression keeps me from doing them as often as I’d like.; games and anime are more escapes than hobbies. I’ve driven one therapist to give up on me and my current therapist keeps falling asleep on me when she isn’t fussing about me isolating. I function at work only because my brain is a special kind of broken that can separate obligation to someone paying me to do something vs something I can and should do for myself which my brain seems to think is far less important.

    I have a lot of plants, I even keep the dead ones. They all have names. (Tom, Phil, Bob, Dave…etc. Not sure why they are all dude names.) I collect little toys to put them in the plants because they look happy there.

    My anxiety controls my life and I’m struggling to find ways to battle it. Painting helps… but I’ve come to realize I enjoy getting the paint all over myself and my furniture rather than the canvas.

  63. My name is Kat, I like cats. I have a Twitter (sacredmeow), Instagram (sacredmeow), and I’m also on FB if you can pick me out (Kat that posts weird replies.) I cuss like a sailor, enjoy spooky shit, Jenny’s blog (I feel less alone in my weirdness), and musical things. I also have a rather passionate interest in anything to do with Asian cooking. I’m not picky. Kimchi is good.

  65. Hi. I’m a bit of a hermit and cripplingly introverted! I’m classic ‘scared of my own shadow’. I started my blog because I needed to find something to save my sanity after I kept being made redundant. I needed a creative outlet where people can laugh at my misfortune. I’ve always felt like I didn’t fit in, but I’ve learnt to be ok with that. My friends are well-used to my social anxiety. They know I’d rather eat my kneecaps than go to a party! Finding The Bloggess and tribe has made me feel at home. I don’t collect taxidermy. I do love chips and crisps (fries & chips 😉 ). I can be very brave when it comes to doing stupid stuff. I feel physically sick at any hint of conflict or disharmony, personal, external, global. I’ve started drinking Vermouth. Rosso.

  68. Hey Jenny, I don’t do Facebook any more since they think my information should be an open book to the Trump ne’re do wells. My blog is https://bloggingdysfunction.blog. Twitter is @pamela_lapier. I alternate between calling mysel the biggest piece of shit that ever lived to thinking I’m going to be a great writer like our lovely bloggess. I want to be a cat when I grow up because they don’t give a damn what anyone thinks and they believe they’re here to be worshipped. I’d like that kind of confidence. I haven’t found fun outlets like you have so I mostly hide in my apartment and batter myself for bad things I’ve done both real and imagined. I have a demon inside me too that I can’t shut up. I think you know about that.

One of my many hobbies is collecting bad erotica writing, I own a postcard of a gangrenous hand in a jar, and if you can imagine a socially awkward, loud red panda, that’s me. I have anxiety disorder, PTSD, bipolar and ADD, so my daily weird level is pretty high. I can’t decide if I want to be Carrie Fisher or Emma Thompson when I grow up.

    I’m a bit paranoid about being “outed” online for reasons too long/boring to go into here so you can just call me C. I love most animals (but ESPECIALLY cats, nature’s perfect creation), reading like it was my job (I WISH it was my job), 80s music, Hatsune Miku, conspiracy theories (not that I believe 99% of them, I just like reading them), and video games, especially survival horror like Silent Hill and Resident Evil. I don’t have a sweet tooth, I have a sweet JAW. My favorite movie is The Fall, starring Lee Pace, another one of nature’s perfect creations.

  82. I’m Laura! My friends selected the title of my future memoirs: “My Brother Killed Himself, I Left My Husband, And Then I Joined The Circus.” Subtitle: “And she’s strong and could probably kill you with her bare hands”. In a nutshell, after my brother’s suicide in 2009 I basically decided to focus on things that made me happy, so I quit my job and my marriage and became a circus artist and flying trapeze instructor. I still have big dreams at 42, and even though society wants me to be invisible I’m not going quietly (nor am I letting my panic and anxiety disorders keep me down!). You can follow me on Instagram at @lifeafternormal, but it’s mostly pictures of my dog and two cats. And alcohol. Occasionally circus fun. I blog occasionally (trying to do more!!!!) at http://www.lifeafternormal.com and tweet occasionally at @lifeafternormal. I love that you are doing this, Jenny! Thank you! Can’t wait to follow away!

I’m into morbid things like death and dying rituals, nerdy stuff, watching hulu/Netflix, and old tea cups. I work in a library which leads to reading too many books at once and pushing people around me to use their library. My anxiety likes to tell me everyone hates me which leads to depression. I am a very empathic person which leads to alot of pain that I absorb from toxic people. Basically I’m a cat who drinks coffee and can pull off brow line glasses.

I escape my brain demons by running (slowly), swimming (even slower), getting lost in sci-fi, and watching true crime shows. Recently when searching for the show “unmasking a killer”, my tv pulled up the show “unmasking the idol” so my husband and I shrugged and pressed play. If you love to make one liners while watching odd movies, that’s a good one to add to the list. I recently Moved to a new state, and have been drowning in sadness from a lack of having a person out here, but I’m also petrified to open up when I meet people, so it’s a hamster wheel problem.

  89. Hi I’m Brenda, I am a rocker – in the way that as a child I would bounce my back against the car seat or chair, wherever I was sitting. This is still my favorite way to deal with anxiety only now I try to restrict it to a rocker recliner. I have three small stuffed animals, Ribbert, Roarbert and Patch and I have them packed in a gym bag (sitting up on a folded blanket so they can see out) and take them along with me for the car ride wherever I go. I make up stories about them and they each have very unique personalities. I refer to them as CSAs, Certified Service Animals. When left in the car alone, they love to blow the horn to startle people then they giggle and act like they are just stuffed animals. I have an amazing husband who knows everything about me and loves and supports me anyway! He will carry the CSA’s bag if I have my hands full and he makes up adventures for them too. Roarbert calls my husband, “Big Guy” and likes my husband to call him, “Tankster”.
    I normally try to hide my crazy but sometimes it gets away from me and I know I’m not fooling anyone! Jenny, you have been so important to me since my breakdown in 2015. Thank you for helping me make a comeback. I would love more friends!

And yes, I do know that my lemurs will someday die too so they aren’t really a very good substitute for a dog in that sense but at least I will get to live in a house full of lemurs.

    Me: I share a first name with our lovely hostess. (Writing ‘Hostess’ made me think of snack food. I love junk food and hate exercise, which I guess I shouldn’t admit on the internet, but…
    I have a huge collection of plush animals (not taxidermied, though I have a B.Sc. in conservation and was gifted a cat skeleton by a lab tech at my university..) The plushies all have names: Puppy (a plush puppy on permanent loan from my therapist) usually comes with me to psychiatrist appointments, though Bunny (yes, a bunny) has come too. I wish I could have a real pet, but I live with my parents, and they say no, so I volunteer to dog walk at the animal shelter.
    I’m autistic (not ‘a person with autism’) and have GAD, social anxiety disorder (which apparently can be diagnosed in addition to autism), MDD with an extra fun side of dysthymia, and likely complex PTSD (which is the biggest problem IMHO). I’ve been on the med merry go round since age 12 and can’t remember everything I’ve been on anymore.
    I wish I could go to Disney World (was there once and didn’t get to 2 of the parks), but can barely work and the majority of what I make goes to my health care, so I read Disney guidebooks and am hoping to find a Universal Orlando guidebook at the library (because Harry Potter is awesome).

  118. Hi, I’m Rachael. I look pretty normal on the outside and do a good job of pretending. I am constantly worrying that everyone I know will figure out that I don’t know what the hell I’m doing. I have anxiety to the max, and constantly worry about things that might harm/kill my son. I am a gardener. I run, when I can (well, riggle is more like it–running/jiggling). I wish I could turn my brain off more of the time and stop thinking so hard about everything. Meditations is great, when I’m not too anxious to do it ;). I’m worried there is something wrong with me because I haven’t managed to make much of a community in the new town where I live–I wonder why my parent’s generation had such great community and it seems so much harder now. My son is struggling with school because in the last year he has: moved, been to 4 schools, seen his parents divorce, and his father become mentally ill (or, as I like to say, finally be diagnosed). He’s at risk of being kicked out of kindergarten people!!! Wow, talk about feeling like a terrible parent. I worry about how much I’ve fucked up my kid. And hope he will turn out to be at least mildly happy as an adult.

    I’m Lesley. I pronounce it LEZlee though most people call me LESSlee, which I hate almost as much as having to correct people who say it wrong. Every. Damn. Time. I love hanging out with my 3 little dogs; people, not so much. We moved from East coast to West coast a couple of years ago but so far, I’ve managed to avoid making friends. Since retiring, my personal motto is I DON’T CARE. My carpet needs vacuuming? I don’t care. My night table looks like I’m a hoarder? I don’t care. My closet looks like Love Canal? —— fill in the blanks. As long as my dogs – and my wonderful husband – think I’m cool, I don’t care about anyone else.

    Everyone says I’m kind, upbeat and friendly – obviously, they don’t know me AT ALL.

    You can find me on Facebook, but why would you want to?

Please ignore the prior post and chalk it up to my weirdness. I’m Maggi. I live in PA but I grew up in CA and have lived everywhere in between and overseas as well. I’m obsessed with the Yankees and the Giants, and everything superheroes. Marvel. DC. Star Wars. Suspend reality type stuff cuz let’s face it. Life sometimes sucks donkey balls. I collect those weird vinyl Pop figures and am slightly addicted to finding the chases. If you don’t know what I mean, GOOD! More for me. 😂 I like animals better than 99.9% of humans. My boyfriend calls me crazy and I think he’s only half joking. I have bipolar disorder and serious social anxiety plus enough physical ailments to make my medicine cabinet looks like a Pharmacy, but it is what it is. Most days I’m too focused on finding a way to laugh that shit off. Life is too short. I’m really working to enjoy it. Some days I win that battle. Other days I fail badly in a hugely epic way. Oh. I’m also a redhead AND an only child. Yep. I’m way weird. I’m on twitter as @ctyankeesfan: you’ve been warned. #letsbefriends

  174. I’m Josie. That’s not my real name. I hate my real name. I like things like camping and hiking where I can just get away from people. I play roller derby so I can hit people and knock them over without getting arrested. I can be wildly irreverent and enjoy childish humor- like laughing at the fact Uranus smells like farts. I have three pet rabbits who live inside my house- 2 of the three hate me unless I’m giving them food. The third one is obsessed with licking my feet and the couch. I’m a 37 year old college senior with a 4.0 GPA and a crippling fear that I’m not good enough, smart enough or hard working enough to get a job after college. This leads me to push myself too hard and causes me bouts of anxiety where I am convinced everyone hates me and I can’t sleep well at night for fear of a bad grade crippling my chances at getting a degree.

    I think I belong here…
    I’m not that interesting really.

Example: When I was about five I took a whole row of cake pieces from the pan, because it would be less obvious that a row was missing than one piece. I crumbled one of the pieces leaving a trail to my brothers’ bedroom door so they would take the blame. (Apparently no one noticed the crumble trail.) If I could think up that at the age of five, bahaha…world domination! Instead I’ve channeled that into writing and with the help of my dil have set up a blog and facebook and started publishing. http://helenmatheyhornbooks.com/ https://www.facebook.com/helenmatheyhornbooks/ I love that you share with us and totally love your sense of humor.

I tried to get traditionally published, but was told face to face by an agent no one wanted to read about a pharmaceutical rep and that I should rewrite the main character to work for a magazine. I ignored her advice. I discovered this blog 8 years ago and have been a faithful reader since (note – for years I commented under a different alias, because paranoia). I consider this group of people my tribe and I wrote a sentence in my novel that secretly pays homage to us. Only true followers will catch it.

    I am on Pinterest still, so if you want to look me up there you can. I’m “Pibbity Bibbity” there. I can’t guarantee I’ll be staying on there, because politics and gross Nazi trolls seem to be creeping in there at a faster rate every day. I’m finding the world harder to navigate every day.

  225. emerges from the cave I’m T and I’m broken. But aren’t we all, in one way or another? Retired civil servant, dislocated liberal snowflake Yankee trapped in blood-red Oklahoma (yuk yuk yuk hate hate hate). I’m poor. And mentally damaged (depression, severe anxiety issues, a touch of OCD, PTSD). I hardly leave my house. I write lots but have trouble finishing things (oh, did I mention the ADD?), I knit (see the ADD comment), used to travel when I had money, love to sail, like to take photographs. I live far removed from every living member of my family. It’s just me and the cats. Four of them. With a fifth, the stray, still living outside until I can get him neutered. Considering it’s traumatic for me to even go to the theater to see a movie, I live a lonely, solitary life… oh, fuck it. I have no life. I swear a lot. Which I blame on my sailor father. I can be found on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/iskandariya), instagram (@tirenegardner) and twitter (@iskandariya), though I don’t pay a lot of attention to twitter these days…. I also have a permanent livejournal account, though I don’t think I’ve posted there in over a year…. more than a year (https://iskandariya.livejournal.com/).

  239. Hey there! I’m Diane Cantwell Corso (writerly name is D.C. Corso) on Facebook. I have no Twitter as I don’t quite understand how it works hides. I tried to have a Twitter feed, but I’m not sure how to re-Tweet or comment on Tweets or really what a Tweet is, so I ignored my account until it was hacked, so….I have an Instagram account but honestly I am even less sure about the workings of it, so I largely ignore that account.

    I’ve been writing since I was about 10 years old, when a desire to play with my big sister’s electric typewriter prompted me to write a series of short stories about her cat, later dubbed “Fonzie Fairy Tails” GET IT? BECAUSE HE’S A CAT! TAILS NOT TALES! Yeah, I was pretty proud of that. I wrote a lot, usually during class because it was boring as hell; I wrote a series of novellas about crime-solving non-identical twins, inspired by Nancy Drew. And in high school, I tried to write Stephen-King inspired horror stories but it turns out I liked my characters too much to off them. I kept trying though, and wrote a lot of other ambling fiction well into adulthood.

    I have a blog linked in this post, which again, I largely ignore and need to pay attention to, thanks for the reminder. I am a writer – I published one psychological thriller called Skin and Bones (https://www.amazon.com/Skin-Bones-D-C-Corso/dp/1934733385) in 2009; I think it’s out of print but you can usually dig up a copy on Amazon. I am writing a new supernatural thriller (read: haunted lake house story!!!) called Broken Things. It’s the first new book I’ve seriously attempted in about 9 years, so yayyyyy. Jenny, I think you would like it; there is a unique music box in it.I’ve always wanted to write a haunted cabin story, so I’m psyched.

    Things one might not guess by looking at me: As a child, I tended to buy and proudly wear things that made me look like a giant dork, like the bonnet I sported when going through an obsessive passion for “Little House on the Prairie” (the only one I could find was white with green polkadots, which was a bit of an anachronism because Laura Ingalls definitely stuck with calico) and an assortment of graphic tees that made no sense to me as a kid but for some reason thought they were hilarious anyway. OH and kneesocks pulled ALL THE WAY UP. I kind of miss that unwavering self-confidence that was crushed by high school, which was filled with gothy angst and yet a laziness to really dress the part. I liked the people, but dammit, putting on that much make-up in the morning was never my thing.

    I have been on meds for epilepsy since I was about 12, and then later, depression. Turns out the depakote they had me on for most of youth/early adulthood was masking severe depression, so when they changed my meds I was really not fun to be around at all.

    I am married to my best friend in the world, Michael, who is so supportive of everything I try to do and want to do that honestly, t don’t know what I would do without him. It’s our 12th anniversary today, actually.

    Stuff I like: horror with a brain (Ravenous, Cabin in the Woods, Get Out, etc), true crime (OMG the ID channel!!!!), writing writing writing and chatting with like minds. Wanna be my friend??? Wait, did that sound desperate? Anyway, friend/folow away! I promise to save you some chocolate. And maybe even a taxidermied bird.

    I am pidge.white on Instagram and I very seldom use FB and don’t know the other social media. Although when I met my husband he called me a social butterfly 🦋 which is tattooed on my ankle along with several other tattoos on arms and legs. I spent my whole life until 35 being crazy awesome outstanding, or at least that’s how it felt with many friends and a job at which I could tell the boss to blow and come back later to find she’d passed out on the floor. I was a ROCKSTAR . Something happened to me though. I died. Or I’m somewhere that I can’t find me. I have no friends and my husband who cherished me barely speaks to me. Can a person die yet still live? Surely so because that is me. If not for the love of an amazing dog i would easily say fuck this place and be gone. The truth is sometimes all I want to be is a missing person. The best quote I’ve found to describe my inner wellbeing is this –
    There is a thing, like a bird weak and fluttering within my chest. I cradle it and care for it as anyone would an injured thing, yet I silently pray for its death.
    I have lost the most awesome friend I ever had. Me.

We have doggos whom I love unconditionally, even though sometimes the little one shits on the bathroom rug, the oldest barks at his own shadow and the middle one is just a bitch. I hide behind my blog for the time being because I’ve been too scared to attach my name to it, for fear of upsetting someone – friends, colleagues, family. Lately, though, that hasn’t been much of a concern. I’m now at a point of the mantra “You Do You” and screw everyone else. http://www.writefrommyhead.blogspot.com

  276. I am astoundingly normal in all outward respects. But I am drawn to people who are unusual like a moth to a flame. I just saw an interview about Graham Chapman of Monty Python. His writing partner, the famouse John Cleese, tells this story (that I just lifted from a Reddit thread)- “At one point, Graham was invited to attend this big seminar and was expected to perform a 12 minute speech on some nuclear thermo whatever and instead showed up dressed as a carrot and stood stock still and silent for the entirety of the presentation. John said that Graham was quite pleased that he was able to get the audience members good and worked up over his refusal to speak” People like this make me so deeply happy I want to simply cry and cry when I am around them or hear about them. They give me hope and I can’t articulate why.

    Hi, I’m Olivia. I used to blog, but they’ve all been pretty much abandoned for years. The only social media presence I have is really Instagram. I’m countess.christophine there. I crochet, draw, write music, and IRL I think of myself as something of a cross between Morticia Addams and Glinda the Good Witch of the South from The Wizard of Oz. I am an absolute extrovert stuck in a situation where I am mostly home taking care of my disabled mother so rarely get to be social and the only friends I have at this point are online. At the same time, the further from face-to-face interaction it gets, the more uncomfortable and anxious I get, thanks to PTSD from years of abuse.. Reading non-verbal cues was often how I survived, so not having any to go by makes me nervous and sometimes triggers fight or flight responses. So I love to have friends online – but rarely find I’m able to say anything to anyone, even though I love to hear/see/read what people are up to because doing so gets me too anxious. This right now is making me severely anxious, so I’m going to stop now and go color or crochet to calm down. If anyone cares to find me on Instagram, please know I am happy to look at your pictures and memes and enjoy your comments if you make any, even if it’s met with a lot of silence because I couldn’t wrestle my issues into their straightjackets for the day.

My creative outlet for the last two years has been D&D however, where I specifically play characters who try to inject kindness into the fictional worlds they traverse, even when I can’t always muster myself to go out into the real world when my anxiety and depression get to me and make me want to hide away. I love TV but am perpetually behind all my shows, mostly because I have hit the point that binging seasons just works better for my brain. I love podcasts, too, love them love them – ones that teach me things, ones that tell me fictional stories, ones that tell me about the worst and best of humanity. I’m currently getting certification online for IT Support and hope to shift my focus on that as I get my life together.

    Seriously, my wife and I started reading your blog about a year before the first book came out – snatched the book out of the Powell’s Bookstore at PDX the minute it hit the shelves and nearly had an accident driving home while reading the book out loud to each other.
    I’m a typical community theatre buff, introverted, own way too many books, and sing constantly (when I’m not talking to myself). So, yeah, I’m damaged.

    That’s why I admire you so much. How do you make it all funny while you’re so, so vulnerable? Amazing courage and talent. I am never going to be normal – wouldn’t want to be – and you make me understand that it’s all good. So thank you.

  295. Hi,
    My name is Diane. I work in an office, and participate in the daily rat race. I sometimes throw up a little on my ride to work because I think my entire soul is slowly being crushed due to my routine work life.
    I definitely prefer being around my dogs more than most people. While I am grateful for all I have (including my office job), I secretly would love to drop out of the rat race and travel the world, or at least the states, with my dogs, in a funky RV that I design myself. I’m not a hippy, I just long to be free.
    I don’t like anything popular so I have a hard time relating to most people. Don’t like pop music, the latest trendy tv show or movie, latest trendy fashion, etc. I do love movies but generally I go for the low budget, artsy ones. I love fashion and design, just not what everyone else would like. This is okay with me as I figure if I don’t fit in with the norm I won’t have to deal with many crowds, which I hate!
    I have too many conversations with myself. On the positive side, I am hilarious! At least I think so.
    I am single and recently have been dating. Being that I consider myself different, weird, etc, I will give you one guess as to how my search for my true love is going…not good. I am generally happy living the single life as I do find fun, interesting things to do but I had thought that it would be nice to find another weirdo to enjoy them with. How do weirdos find other weirdos that they can fall in love with?
    Well, that’s more than a sentence or two….

    Ten years ago, when I was 35, I was diagnosed with (complex) PTSD and an anxiety disorder.

But the fallout from a difficult childhood means I will always be a work in progress, and I’m trying to come to peace with that.

The first person to reach out to me privately, as opposed to in a #TheBloggessTribe group setting, was a kind man. Cheo Jackson. It helped that he was a guy too. And he was just lovely. Patient, kind, insightful, helped me see things from a different perspective. Pushed my mind to think in ways I never had regarding my own mental demons. He was a good man. He passed away unexpectedly last November. You wrote about him shortly after. I still miss him. We never met live and in person but we still did manage to get really close really fast. He and his family, his wonderful wife Anya, were just the best people. I still talk to her, hopefully we’ll stay friends forever.

    Hi everyone, I’m Jenni. I’m looking forward to reading everyone’s post and then reaching out weeks later because my social anxiety is really bad. 🙂
    Let’s see, I don’t like talking about myself so this is a good exercise for me. I love my two cats, reading (my current mission is to read every single Agatha Christie book – I’m @arlenefrancis on Goodreads), binge-watching tv shows and movies to avoid reality, cooking, yoga, traveling when I can afford it and don’t worry too much about leaving my cats alone, art, and alpacas. I’m gay and currently live in Germany with my American wife.
    My dream is to become a pastry chef but right now I’m unemployed and directionless due to my mental health issues (hey, it feels good to say that and not be afraid of being judged. I know you’re all awesome). I live with anxiety and depression, take lexapro and see my therapist once a week.
    I love Jane Fonda and met her last October, one day after my birthday. I’m very lonely and isolated and find it excruciatingly hard to reach out to people, but would love to find some friends through Jenny. I’m @helenmirrens on twitter, @nightoats on instagram and @normashearer on Facebook. 🙂

  332. I’m Carma. I have two cats and a fiancé who keep me here because escapism is my biggest addiction. I love British and absurdist and dark and nihilistic and dumb and all other kinds of humor. I think farts are pretty funny in appropriste settings. I’m a veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan. I love to do things – everything – but alone or with cats/fiancé. People intimidate me but I’ve never met an animal I didn’t love. I’m a slytherin, and the more I think about it the more it makes sense (I was blindsided when it happened – and then continued on every test thereafter). Not a bad one, I think, im not a bigot, I’m not violent or angry, I don’t hate anyone, I’m actually super empathetic… I’m just not an idealist. Not at all. I work in a crazy high stress job (law enforcement) and I still am surprised about it (it’s been fourteen years). I have nightmares all the time about failing to protect people. Until my fiancé, I wasn’t afraid of death though I’m very well acquainted with it. I read too much fiction and do my nails too often and cry easily. I trust way too easily. I paint, but badly. I obsess endlessly over my awkwardness with friends and people I’d like to befriend. Despite this, I’ve been told I’m very cold. I hate hugs, maybe that’s why. I like rainy days best. I will struggle to post this, because it feels super exposed. I’m not sure I’ll put my IG in either. I wish I understood people better. I use too many parenthesis. I’m only a perfectionist with my work. I wish I could connect to you all as openly as you connect to each other, but for whatever reason it’s much too scary. I wish I had more grass and trees and flowers around me. Believe it or not, I’m not sad 🙂 just wistful that it’s so hard for me to be as open as so many of the comments I see here. I wish I was brave enough to do that. I wish I was brave enough to tell the people I love and admire how much I love and admire them. Even strangers. Carma isn’t even my real name, but it’s the one I can give. Jenny has helped me through so much without even knowing who I am (started reading while in Iraq, which was definitely a time I needed it most without even knowing).

    To be fair, I’m not sure who I am a lot of the time. But I’m figuring it out, little by little.

    (This isn’t meant to be sad but I feel like it reads sadly? Please know I’m not sad- I do wish I was brave and outgoing and friendly but I’m also very happy in general. Maybe this was just a place for me to dump some demons anonymously?)

    officerripley

    Hi, I’m not on twitter anymore (kept getting too many marriage proposals…hey it could happen! Yes, it could TOO! Oh, okay, just got one). Only way to connect with me is thru goodreads.com, epicyears.com, or paperbackswap.com; I’m officerripley on all 3 sites and would love it if somebody connected with me on any of those sites. I’m an old lefty, liberal, atheist, feminist, childless-by-choice–neither of my parents should’ve had kids & I knew I shouldn’t either–gal living in a very old-fashioned, conservative area where all the women in my age group are horrified by me since they consider their grandkids the 2nd most important thing in the world. (That part is cool; I wish I had had grandparents, hell even parents, like that.) The 1st-most important thing to them is church. Plus I’m married to a guy who used to be liberal like me & who has turned right-wing on me in his old age. (I blame all the golf he’s been playing; could this be an alt-right plot?!.) So I get pretty lonely & feel stranded here in APlaceIDon’tFitInville. Yep I know I’d be happier in or near a big city but moving is out; Hubby refuses to move & we couldn’t afford it anyway. So my advice to any of you younger gals: if possible, do not strand yourself out in the middle of nowhere; when you get older, most of the time it’s too late to make a move. I was chatting online with a gal who grew up near a big city like I did & couldn’t wait to leave & move to a smaller, less expensive area. Her mother warned her about doing that, said to really think about it becuz if she ever decided she wanted to move back to the city, she wouldn’t be able to afford to. Annnd, that’s exactly what happened; the closest she can afford to live near that big city that she misses so much is 2 states away & is, like me, trying to make peace with the fact that this is how we’re going to be spending our “golden” years, living in a place we hate.

    Apologies for all the whining but the loneliness gets to me more & more the older I get; there are some groups around here that fit my interests/leanings, but I’m always older by at least 25 yrs than the gals in those groups; the gals are always so nice but it’d be nice to have a friend near my age who understands stuff like not being able to go to the movies anymore since I can’t sit thru a whole movie without having to go use the restroom.

    I saw you…I saw you in an orange grove.

Occasionally their normality makes me have flashbacks to high school when pretty much everything I said was “shocking.” My blog has turned from salty profanity into musings about my cats and nature in part because my family now reads it. Many things I would like to say would prompt my mother to show up on my doorstep. I love to read. Mostly horror and fantasy or sci-fi, humor when Ican find it. This also bleeds into my movies and tv tastes. In good weather, I live for my garden and someone to go hiking with.

I love books, the ocean, improv, making what on good days I call art and on bad days I call a shitty waste of art supplies, documentaries, late 70s/early 80s synthpop and New Wave music, history, museums, astronomy, archaeology, libraries, crochet, sewing, beads, buttons, guerrilla art, mixed media, embroidery, helicopters (USCG Dolphins and Jayhawks are my favorites), juggling, and an embarrassing number of 80s TV shows. I love wearing earrings I’ve made and long skirts. I’m a no makeup, no high heels kinda chic. My favorite band is OMD. And, I also love all sorts of world music. When I was a little girl, Debbie Harry, Princess Leia, Wonder Woman, and Morticia Addams were my heroes. This hasn’t changed. I have a 19yo son who’s on the autism spectrum. I’m neuroatypical. Anxiety and depression are bullies. So is asthma. I changed religions a few years ago so that tends to freak some people out. I’m a geeky, activistic, liberal, Jewish feminist.

I love mystery & fantasy books, just about all types of music, and am part of too many Fandoms to list here! (Supernatural is my current fave!) I have recently pulled myself out of a severe depression & am trying to get a handle my anxiety (which I’m not being very successful at today!). As a teenager, I made a conscious decision to become a comedian in social situations so that I could make fun of and laugh at myself before anyone else did. Due to this, many of my coworkers and students think I’m extremely outgoing. I am not. I love to sing and perform because when I’m on stage I don’t have to be me: I can be the brave warrior princess or the daring pirate queen or anything else I’m too nervous to be in reall life. I am old enough to know better, but still too young to care. I love being part of your tribe because I know that I’m not alone & that others understand. I could go on, but I won’t.

I adopted 2 cats several years ago from our local animal shelter, and named them Ralf and Waldo. Ralf got his name because he was the first of the 2 to hornk up a hairball. Waldo got his name because a day or two after I brought them home (and DESPITE MY STRONG WISHES AND THE SIGN ON THE DOOR) someone left the basement door open, he escaped to the basement, and we couldn’t find him for 3 days. Named him from the children’s book_Where’s Waldo? By Martin Handford. And of course, since I had a Ralf and a Waldo, it gave me wiggle room to lobby for an Emerson too. Emerson showed up about 4 years later. She is a mighty cricket hunter. Sadly, Ralf died about 2 years afterwards from a cancerous tumor. I am sad not to have a Ralf, Waldo & Emerson cat team anymore. Something my colleagues do not know about me is that of the many hundreds of times I have come to work, I have been wearing tie-dyed underwear all except about 6 times. When my sister’s sons got married and had babies, my sister and I tie-dyed onesies, baby sheets, receiving blankets, cloth diapers (which we use as burp cloths), and bibs for the babies. Their moms loved it. Their babies can hang out with the cool babies (or maybe the stoner babies) I once purposely sent my nephew a birthday card late, because the one I liked best that day was a Belated Birthday card. I sent it in a padded envelope to my sister, with instructions to give it to him the day after his birthday. I read a great many books. I love Bloggess columns in general, but especially where Jenny asks people about their favorite books, because then I can get leads on authors with whose work I don’t know yet. I only like about 4 TV shows, but I am OK with that because it gives me more reading time. And speaking of reading and TV, I LOVED Jeff Lindsay’s “Dexter” books, but when I tried the TV show based on the books, I only got about 20 minutes into Season 1, episode 1, before I felt too nauseated to watch anymore. And this is from a person who likes Forensic Files. Bleahchhh.

  367. I was nervous the first time I posted and what I said sounds sad and pathetic to me, so I wanted to try again which is probably also sad and pathetic, but that’s not stopping me. Yay anxiety! I was called weird as a child and bullied for it, so I suppressed that part of myself. I have finally reached an age where I no longer want to care about what others think and embrace the weird me. I am working on digging that girl back up and would love friends who understand and accept a little weirdness. I love exploring cemeteries and feel more comfortable there than in public. Hoodies make me feel safe. I am in my happy place with a book and a cup of hot chocolate or hot tea. I am an introvert, but would love some friends.

I’m fortunate to have an exceedingly wonderful and patient husband who not only tolerates my shit but knows me well enough to help in the small ways he can. I like food and booze way too much. I prefer dogs over people, because dogs are awesome and people are…not. I’ve recently discovered Jenny and finally have a positive association with Texas.

    I’m @wildrider51 on Twitter. Why? I haven’t actually ridden a horse in more than 40 years, but I got the name from a song title and never bothered to change it as I stopped really loving the singer of the song. The 51 is from a game I used to play and write stories for but haven’t played in more than 20 years. So clearly, the first impression I must give is how incomprehensibly lazy I am. I am also emotional, opinionated, somewhat aggressive, and have a bad temper, which is probably why I have so few friends. The ones I have mean all the wide world to me. And possibly why I think so many people in my computer are my friends, too. I collect bottles (in bright colors or interesting designs), cats (figurines and increasingly the living, fluffy kind), and books; I have miscellaneous tons of other crap and every time people say “you need to de-clutter!” and I think about it myself, I look at my “junk” and realize it still brings me joy, so I send an apology to the future when some poor sod will have to clean out my house after my wife and I die, and HE can throw all my junk away, because I won’t need it anymore. I have been with my wife for 30 years and we finally married legally back in 2008 (thank you, California). For our tenth anniversary, our state finally agreed it was a legal marriage.

    I laugh like a hyena when I read your work, Jenny. You make joy. Thank you for being a friend. (We actually have met, at a book signing, but I’m sure you made more of an impression on me than vice-versa.)

I work at the vet so I can pet dogs and cats all day. That’s it, that was my whole reason for applying for the job.

    I have two cats, Fitz and Jemma, who are named after two adorable scientists on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, with which I am obsessed, as I am obsessed with all things Marvel. I LIVE for film and TV, which you will see me scream about a ton on social media, and music, when I have time between film and TV. I also like to read when I have time, and can stay awake. I used to be a prolific fan fiction writer before I had a full time job, which sucks your creativity right out. I still love writing, and hope to publish something original before I die. I also hate the Trump administration, if you’re into that.

    I suffer from severe chronic pain due to a jacked up spine (no sports playing, no traumatic injuries, always a WTF? look on the doctor’s face), lifelong anxiety and depression, and the funnest of fun traumas with my reproductive organs. Good health times! Jenny’s blog and books have made it quite clear that it’s not just me, and I am not alone.

There was a headstone with the name Sherlock on it! Yes. I fangirled out as soon as I noticed it. Btw, it was Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati if you are so inclined to look it up.

  419. Hi my name is Catalina. I read nonstop and post almost nothing but true crime, feminist & political content. And memes, dear god do I love memes. I show everyone I meet pictures of my dog, and I paint my nails twice a week sometimes because it soothes my anxiety. That is also a reason for all the memes. I do pub quiz and am really good at it. Also love ghosts.

    I say almost hubby, because we are eloping at the courthouse next week. We can’t really have a big wedding right now. I had to quit my teaching job because of anxiety and depression. And then he was diagnosed with lymphoma, and is undergoing treatment for it. I have a gofundme page (gofundme.com/brandonlymphoma) that I’ve kind of been using as a blog to keep people updated.

Took awhile after leaving to find out who that is, in fact I’m still figuring me out. Turns out I am still the offbeat, eccentric and a bit silly person I was before I got married. I was afraid at first that someone was going to squelch me again like my ex but I found out people actually like me as I am! Even my girls. I think they resented me for years for divorcing their dad and I still deal with anxiety and depression, along with such low self esteem and guilt that some days getting out of bed was impossible. I still have those days but not as often. I’ve discovered I’m not alone, that the abuse wasn’t my fault and neither were all the problems and failures my ex blamed me for.

It is a daily struggle…I mean the girls are great, but I don’t exactly “fit the mold”. When I read your description of yourself, it was word for word, exactly me!

I have social anxiety and occasional bouts of depression. I am a proud Introvert.
    My defense against the “normals” is to create a nice bubble from which I rarely emerge where I read your blog, do jigsaw puzzles, binge watch horror movies, and garden. You can find me at Sasabella2207 on insta. That is the most social media I can handle.

    Hi Jenny, I love your blog and you make me smile every time.

    I’m an introvert who is extremely extroverted to those I feel comfortable with, and would really like some more friends here in NYC. I suffer from occasional depressions. I think these are due to the fact I feel lonely, but I am not a people person and don’t go out much to meet people and make friends. I don’t have a lot of patience with people either so I find it hard to find people I want to spend time with. A sense of humor is essential.

    I’m at least 30-40 years younger inside than on my outside and hate that most things that interest me are filled with younger people who don’t want to hang out with an aging Baby Boomer (no matter what her insides are like).

    I don’t have children, nor like them very much, and if you talk about your cat/your kid/your spouse more than three times in an hour, I cannot stop my eyes from rolling up in my head, my brain from going all white-noisey, and then my needing to leave. I love to read memoirs, humor and about traveling; documentaries; true crime podcasts; zombies; traveling; people-watching; laughing; all kitschy stuff; and going on adventures. I dabble in humor writing and have posted on Medium.com http://ow.ly/Avyj30jGR2W

    I also have a blog that I don’t post on much because nobody reads it, but it’s at http://www.lauriefellezs.com. I wrote a lot about living in Japan for 9 months, and now I write about living in NYC.

I grew up with depression and anxiety, in a family of folks very different from me, but who shared those two afflictions with love and understanding. I perceive my inner workings — my feelings, beliefs, thought patterns and habits — through an almost synesthesia-like sense of touch. It makes me feel alone, because I have to constantly work to express the things I understand intuitively in words to others. And while I’ve gotten pretty good at that, I’ve never met anybody who has the same way of experiencing their insides, so I know that at best I’m being understood pretty incompletely.

  522. Yes, I need a friend right now. And I just want to say something first. I grew up in rural West Texas, too, and I am sure that we peed in the same bathrooms. So, let me give you an example of how I roll. Several years ago, I was eating at a restaurant where Poppy and Barbara Bush happened to be eating as well. My then-boyfriend (now husband) dared me to go up to Babs when she went to the salad bar. To be frank, we were not fans of that particular administration, but I mean, here was a former first lady and yes, she was extremely elegant. So, CLEARLY I had to meet her. My approach was cautious, so as not to alarm the two Secret Service agents I saw. I tried to match her grace–you know she had those pearls, and boy, was she working them–but when I got next to her, I tripped and head butted her. She dropped her salad plate, and of course, when it connected with the floor, the sound echoed and the restaurant fell silent. Myriads of Secret Service materialized from several alternate realities and realms–it was frightening.

    I said to her, “I’m so sorry, I just wanted to meet you.”

    She said, “Well, Honey, you sure know how to make an entrance.” The Secret Service horde vanished as quickly as they had appeared, and I went back to the table, and though I got the stink eye from several people for head butting Barbara Bush, I felt like I had physically connected with American history.

    Ok, so I am exceptionally weird, even before you add in the PTSD, Depression, and Anxiety–a charming cocktail that has made me THAT person to friends and family. It is very difficult, but I have a wonderful husband and father. The rest of my family doesn’t talk to me. And if I happen to show a symptom, other folks get very weird, leave the room, or leave me alone for months. I feel very vulnerable right now, because I have just had a PTSD flashback when I thought I was past the worst of it, and it has knocked me back a bit. I am working very hard on the self-care. I am not going to give in.

    Sorry for the ramble, but I am really glad you posted this opportunity. When I grow up, I want to be a unicorn

  526. I’m Jessica. I’m a mom. I have this goal of one day writing a book…Children’s bookmthiugh. I wanted to write an adult book a long time ago, and then I had kids and realized how much I like reading children’s books, so here we are. I get anxious about changes…and there have been a ton of them lately in my life, so that’s hard. I’m trying to stay positive and conjure all the positive energy…but while I’ve been out in LA with my two boys (who audition and act and all that), I have had to move rental places twice..once because someone died, once because the person was a borderline hoarder. And now potentially three times because we might be moving to this side of the country somewhere but we aren’t sure yet. Ahhhh!!!! Oh, I am littlechickenbees on insta and Twitter. I don’t tweet though. I just have it for no good reason other than to check weather and news. Instagram is full of our adventures, though!

  527. Greetings from Texas. I actually live in a tiny house. Not as tiny as the ones you probably make, though. That would be alarming and impressive. My partner built it and I appreciate him, but I don’t appreciate his sleep farts. 200 square feet of festering sleep farts. I just can’t sometimes.

  528. Heya. I’m Noddy. I’m 72 years old and I’ve decided to become a SF/F author so I created a blog where I hold trivial conversations with a reluctant imaginary Muse named Pym. I have a twitter account but I haven’t quite figured out how to use it. I think I have to get a cell phone? I’m a champ at using FB, though, and help others learn how to use it so they are cozy with it. I have a tiny hearing assistance dog that makes up his own signs to talk with me – some of it is snarky so it took me a while to figure out what he was saying. I garden, but my favorite plants are toxic. I sneak plants into the gardens of my friends. Sometimes I blatantly work in their gardens because I can’t abide a dull garden.

And while mastering a trade is still on the cards, I have no qualms being the Jack, so long as I get to dabble with anything that piques my interest. I’m impulsive and feisty, and would want to stay away from the coulda-woulda-shouldas. When I’m old and sitting in my rocking chair, i want to have stories and adventures that I can narrate, and want to look back at a life that was well lived and has amassed its fair share of lessons and adages that I can very humbly dispense. I currently am a management corporate junkie in one of the worlds largest banks. I’m also a full time doggie mom and I’m currently working on using my experiences to influence women in my demographic by introducing them to lifestyle and fashion choices beyond the obvious.

    I suffer anxiety attacks at the worst possible times; in grocery stores where I have been known to leave a full cart of groceries and run out of the store and sit in my vehicle taking deep breaths. Not sure if there are any grocery stores I can return to due to embarrassing moments at any of them 🙂 I dress up stuffed animals, my quite alive cat Mr. Alex and I would dress up my dog if I still had one.

    I am a 30-something chick who is a soon-to-be registered nurse…once I get past all of the hurdles that I created for myself because that’s how I roll. I too fight the fight against depression and anxiety, but thankfully I think I’ve found the right combo of meds that will help me. I am constantly working on some sort of project and about 50% of the time, I’m in over my head. I have two boy cats, Walter and Stanley. My Favorite Murder is my favorite podcast and I not so secretly wish I could be friends with Georgia and Karen in real life. Recently I discovered that @thebloggess is also a fan of MFM and it was an inception type moment finding out the women I’m a fan of are fans of one another. Staying home is the best ever, especially if it is to avoid something that I would have to try to be social at. Resting bitch face is a major problem of mine when in reality I’m just quiet until I’ve gotten to know people. I curse like a motha fucking sailor and I am itching to get more tattoos like one.

St. Clair resides with his wife in North Central Texas, where he writes books (mostly urban paranormal fiction and mysteries) and poetry, blogs on The Midnight Goose (https://themidnightgoose.com), takes every opportunity to make his wife roll her eyes, and hustles like the rent was due yesterday. He is currently working on the second book in his MKPI Odd Case Files series as well as the first book in a new mystery series (tentatively referred to as “The Lake Agate Mysteries”). Allen and his wife recently re-rescued a dog from Hurricane Harvey and named her Jolene…mostly so they’d have (yet another) reason to randomly break out into song. Tap routines to follow.

  560. Hi, friends!
    My name is Lauren, and I just started a blog where I’ll be covering my journey through everything from an eating disorde and living with endo to anxiety, depression, trauma, and grief. I devour books when life gets to be too much (so just about every day) and I love going for walks in the desert with my doggies, practicing yoga, gardening, listening to music, drinking tea, and googling every question that pops into my head that I don’t have an answer for. I’m very sensitive to my surroundings and like to be by myself in my room when I get sensory overload. New people and places exhaust me and I detest small talk and inevitably say the wrong thing which I then obsess about at 2am and every subsequent time I see said person. I, too, am very empathic (funny how many empaths have anxiety and depression) and recently adopted a vegan/vegetarian lifestyle which has helped me immensely with the profound guilt I always have and can never seem to let go of in anyway. Also I babble when I get nervous. I’m sorry this is so long.

I have ZERO followers because when I joined I wanted it that way. No, really. I just follow a lot of interesting people (like you, Jenny) as well as politicos whose opinions and information I respect. Or they make me laugh. I’m slooooowly making the move away from Facebook and more into Twitter, so I’m ready to have followers. At this stage, though, it’d be a lot like following air. I’m old. I take pictures. I used to be in publishing. I have cats and a bazillion books. Ever since Nov. 9, 2016, though, I’m having a hella time focusing on reading. This. Is. Not. Like. Me. I’m sure that once this national clusterf@@k ends, this, too, shall pass. Like a very painful kidney stone. #LetsBeFriends

  585. Hi Jenny. Another Jen here, wife, mother to 3. I found your blog through a friend and haven’t stopped reading you since. When I read Let’s Pretend this never happened I laughed so much my husband kept coming in from the next room to see what all the hilarity was and finally started saying, oh, that book again. I have missed my chances to meet you because we were in the midst of moving from SA to Nashville and you were there when I wasn’t. Pretty please come visit Nashville again so I can meet the tribe? Anyway, thanks for sharing your humor with us all.

  590. Hello lovely bloggess tribe. Thanks to Jenny, I have something to do before my MRI appointment which is making me hella nervous and I’m awkwardly sitting in the parking lot right now because I got here super early. Yay. I’m a Jenny too. Is it sad that I don’t know what my handle is on facebook? Whatever, anywho! I’m Jenny, I’ve loved unicorns all my life and when I was a little girl I wanted to be a unicorn when I grew up-the Mermaid market was too competetive. AHAHA lame jokes aside-I can be very awkward like the character Peter Klaven in the movie “I Love you, Man.” Joebiin!!! My life is a series of embarrassments I try to survive. I have anxiety and depression which are the worst and health problems and terrible HMO medical insurance that has really limited my quality of life, which will hopefully turn around soon. Our landlord is also the devil which is a long ridiculous story, I love fashion, crafting, art, anything vintage, the Phantom of the Opera, and I love make up artistry-Lisa eldridge is my favorite celebrity makeup artist-her videos are masterful!

  591. I write lots of words, dream about travel more than I actually do it, and I love meeting people. I’m a Colorado Native, living in Florida, longing to make it back to Colorado at least semi-permanently. I have this newly-found social anxiety, ever since I moved across the country completely alone. Doing some major medical things alone has only added to that stress. I think I’m better on paper, most of the time. I like to help people. I keep 3 blogs, and am on twitter a LOT. http://twitter.com/terra_walker.

He’s pretty much all you’ll see if you visit my Instagram. I have no plans to grow up. In fact, someone I respect once said “There are times when you have to be an adult. Those times are tricks. Don’t fall for them”. I believe that if you fail at normal life (which I do constantly) that means you are supposed to have a special life. I battle depression, which I refer to as my “Dire Wolf”. I collect memories, because I can fit them all in my pocket and they are the only things I’ll get to take with me when I die.

    I’m @terminallyRory on Twitter, and on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/rorybristol).
    I’m a funny and kind guy, and I’m good at making friends when I have the energy for it. Unfortunately, they seem to die a lot. I end up talking to dead people a lot, because they aren’t here to listen. (Yes, I’m crazy. No, they don’t talk back.)

    My wife and kids adore me in a way that still defies explanation. I collect LEGO, edit documents for a living, stare at my kids a lot, and play video/tabletop/roleplaying/computer games.

    I’ve got papers from the state telling me I’m crazy, with PTSD, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, and depression. I’ve also got executive dysfunction, which means I am good at making plans, and designing things, but not finishing them because my brain has a hard time going to the last part of the process.

I want something that no one can kick me out of or take away from me and I dont have to let anyone in. I just like to do art. I want to get better at it. I have to get away from poopy atmosphere to get back on track.

    I love painting and taking photographs and editing those photos. I see nature spirits. I think aliens are cloaked in the clouds. There. I said it. I swear I’ve found them while editing photos. I’m not crazy.
      I collect words and quotes. I wear a tiara a lot. My hair is usually half a dozen colors.
    I can usually MacGyver anything. I LOVE ROCKS. Rock hounding. Playing with rocks. I can do that for days on end. I like to collect things. Antique things, rusty things, bones of things, rocks of course..  interesting weirdness.
    Unicorns, glitter, rainbows,  angels, kittens…. I’m basically still 14 but wiser and dealing with trauma and I have a hard time trusting ppl/feeling safe.

    #letsbefriends
    I’ve written a memoir ‘Catch A Falling Star’ about growing up with a famous mum, she made clothes out of garbage bags and was a bit like an Aussie Phyllis Diller with a voice SO LOUD it could strip paint!

    Poor Mum got diagnosed with Alzheimer’s 8 years ago – that was fucking hard, living through that when I had little kids and NO IDEA what I was doing… I also got home invaded during that time and was completely screwed over by a business employee… I came close to loosing my mind there for a while.

    My eldest has just hit 13, my youngest has just started school, my book is at the publishers. I’m excited at the possibilities ahead… I’m also nervous.

    In the past week I’ve had two people give me flowers, one person give me a plate of schnitzel and a gristly old bloke let my son and his friends on a fairground ride without tickets, I’ve also had my house paint-bombed by an unknown lunatic, had my car punched by a woman at a traffic light and lost my dog down a sinkhole…

    I’d love to get to know you all better – you sound like my kind of people!!

    My name is Melanie Whyte and I just started Girls Aren’t Funny, a safe space for women on the internet. But sexier. It’s a submission-based blog where I want funny women like all of you to submit stories filled with your ridiculous escapades. It’s a community to support all women in their fart jokes and period poetry glory. I’m young and mostly scared but this is my step towards disproving girls aren’t funny. I’m currently traveling and spending all my savings in the hope to learn something. Nice to meet you all!

BUT I do blog somewhat regularly, the link to a recent post will be attached. I suffer from ADD. major depressive disorder(subject to change), social anxiety, general anxiety, and paranoia over weird things. I collect teapots and like old typewriters. My mom lives with me, I have two little boys, I left my husband almost a year ago, and now I’m with a woman. Lots of therapy has made me realize I’ve probably been gay the whole time and just lied to myself.

  612. I’m not on anything other than facebook. I can barely keep up with that. I think I’m boring but three times I’ve scared my husband nearly to death. One of those times was when I was in a 12-day coma. (depression/anxiety sucks) Lots of people visited the hospital while I was unconscious, not so much after I went home. This happened in 2010 and I haven’t seen most of my ‘friends’ since then. I haven’t had anyone visit with me in person or on the phone for several years. They just don’t know what to say. My sister-in- law would not allow me to be around her children. Tonight we are going to their house for a birthday party for their 14 year old son. He and his sister don’t know me at all. Just what their mother has told them.

    I would really like some friends. I’ve got many facebook friends with people I have never met. I’m not very savvy about Facebook, I go by Kelly Wright Small on facebook. I need some friends. I need comradery with someone who knows and understands depression and anxiety but I also need to laugh. Frequently. I can be raunchy. I can be gross. Most of the time I am pretty silly. Other times, I am a big fat dork. Please stop by and say HI.

    I was a comedian and writer, but now I’m disabled so performing on stage is out for now. I still write humor and began a copywriting biz from home but I have to fill in with things like Lyft driving (and hopefully my new projects will bring income) to make enough to survive.

    I’m trying to carve out this new existence around a body that doesn’t work well anymore due to congenital things that I had no control over but left me fat in a society that thinks I’m just disabled because I like chocolate. I’m just out of a battle with severe depression…or I guess still fighting with it but on stellar meds. Still trying to decide if I want to live for the next 50 years like this. That could be the anxiety talking though. Or not.
