My interests in life include web & graphic design, writing/journalism, painting (ceramics), board games with my family and doing anything related to water. I’m a professional web designer, (18 years now) so I get to make a living doing what I love. You can view my business website at: http://designgruve.us
Beyond life on the web, I live with my wonderful husband and 3 of my 4 children. I have 3 daughters (26, 14 and 12) and 1 son (23), as well as 2 grandsons. I have a pit bull, named Leonidas (Leo) and 1 kitty (Lilith). I love nature and all of it’s creatures. Except bugs. I despise bugs and arachnid! I’m also a HUGE advocate for the underdog. Mental Illness, Bullying, Pit bulls, etc.
I consider myself to be spiritually connected to Witchcraft. There is nothing more peaceful than connecting with Mother Earth. I am an Aries (Fire sign), however I am deeply connected to the element water. I love the smell of the ocean air, the sand beneath my toes and the cool breeze flowing around me.
I also have a very deep love for animals. Birds and bugs, not so much! But I’m a lover of nature and all of the Gods and Goddesses creatures!
My totem/spirit animal is the Wolf and the Bat. I am seriously drawn to them. Positive symbolism of the wolf spirit animal emphasize a deep connection with your intuition and instincts. On the negative side, the wolf could represent a perceived threat or a lack of trust in someone or your own feelings or actions. This spirit animal also reflects sharp intelligence in dealing with important matters.
I am a huge advocate for the underdogs of the world. — People who suffer from mental illness, anti-bullying, animals (especially the bully breeds — such as the pit bull, people who suffer from domestic violence, child abuse, etc. — My heart is easily broken!
I run 3 groups on Facebook. The Broom Closet, The Sparkling Moon and Whispers to the Moon. I consider my members to be a part of my family. I love them all so much. I feel like I have a better connection with my online friends than I do with those I meet in person. hence the reason I have no ‘real’ friends. LOL
On another note. I am a transmetatarcle amputee (My toes on my right foot have been removed). I had 7 surgeries in 4 months. It was rough. Spent 2.5 months in inpatient physical rehab to learn to walk. I ended up getting RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Distrophy Syndrome.) — It’s a nerve disorder and it’s so painful. I am in pain 24/7. I wish I could catch a break and be pain free for just one hour!
I also suffer from Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Depression, Anxiety and Chronic Insomnia. On top of that I have diabetes, High Cholesterol, Hashimoto’s Thyroid Disease, COPD, 3 Bulging Discs, Bursitis in my hips, Joint Pain and Vascular Disease. I have small pharmacy in my house! Trying desperately to find herbal solutions to my problems. I’m so sick of pills!
Well, that about sums me up. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me. Find me on Facebook. Namaste.
