I've been married to the same man for over 30 years. I'm one of the most introverted people I know. I share my home with two Siberian Huskies. I have a grown stepson who lives in another city. At work, I'm known as the Kitty Whisperer (aka Crazy Cat Lady).
As a child, I was subjected to severe physical, emotional, sexual and verbal abuse. My father committed suicide almost a decade ago. Within the last 2 years, I've had a mastectomy, chemo, radiation and reconstruction surgery. I suffer from chronic severe depression and post traumatic stress disorder.
I work in an absolutely crazy environment. Even my therapist and psychiatrist have said so.
I'm living proof that things can always get worse. But I'm pretty entertaining about all of it.
