Hi everyone, welcome.

My decision to start this was many years in the making. I have always wanted to write and share my struggles with various things. I know there are other people out there like me, people who might feel alone in their struggles. What I’ve come to understand is that nobody is alone. There is always someone out there who is just like me.

I have struggled with my self-confidence and my self-worth for as long as I remember. I have read many self-help books, listened to others’ stories, talked to others, and struggled with depression which took me to a place so dark it is scary to think of now.

I have been diagnosed with incurable things (MS) that have made me rethink my life and realize what is actually important. I am far from perfect, nor do I have things “figured out” and I’m not convinced that anyone really figures everything out.

I love animals, reading, movies, and video games. I want to share my journey with others and would love to hear yours as well. I have come to understand the importance of communicating, even just through the internet. Back in the way, yes I’m aging myself here, we used to have pen pals, and we would write letters to each other.

Crazy idea I know, but this is the same, just faster than snail mail.

I have found that even just writing things out here, even if nobody responds helps to get this out of my brain.
