Eleven Facts about me
The etymology of my full name means “princess, rose of Sharon, Lily of the valley, son of God”.
I was sued by my city for fashioning a middle finger with Christmas lights on my roof. I won my case in Federal court with the gracious help of the ACLU, with a special thanks to Justin Harrison, of the ACLU. This made international news two years in a row.
Though I am his daughter, my father referred to me as “son” and “boy”.
I was married for seven years until it ended in a bitter divorce in 2013, at which time I lost custody of my youngest three children.
My mother lost custody of me when I was a year and a half old and spent the next three decades slowly drinking herself to death.
I am currently drinking myself to death.
Before I broke off my five year relationship with my last psychiatrist, he diagnosed me with Major Depression.
I am a recluse.
Besides alcohol, I remain unmedicated.
My dog just threw up.
Eleven is my second favorite number.
Why did you start blogging? I started blogging mostly so my children will have their questions about me answered, in case I don’t live long enough to answer them. I have so many questions I need to ask my mom, but I can’t because she’s dead, I don’t want that to be the case for my children.
Who, what, and/or where does your blogging inspiration come from? Pain, anger, unanswered questions, sadness, and the hope that someone else will relate
What is your favorite quote? “Hey, you, are you trying to be mean? You live with apes, man, it’s hard to be clean.” -Marilyn Manson
If you were the main character in a movie, which actress would you want to play your role?Juliette Lewis
5. What do you dislike about blogging? (Be honest!) Mean people….but that’s usually the reason I dislike anything.
What is your favorite book? oh…wow…um…..yeah….ummmm…there’s SO MANY….books are my thing. However, I have two that I don’t live without and those are ‘Sephir Sapphires’ Volumes 1 & 2.
What is the hardest thing you have ever done, or the biggest obstacle you have faced in your life? Losing my children and I haven’t finished facing it…I still have a ways to go and I’m not going about it intelligently, I do realize this….I guess I’m a pussy and the pain is so much to bear, so on most days, I really just want to die.
If you could be invisible for a day, what would you do or where would you go? This is funny because when I was a kid, being invisible was always the second super-power I fantasized about having, besides the ability to stop time. I haven’t thought about being invisible much as an adult…I think I already am.
What do your friends/family think about your blogging? I’m not sure what my friends think and since my family hates me, I’m pretty sure they REALLY hate my blogging….especially dear old dad.
What is one of the best things you like about yourself? My ability to always speak the truth.
Here’s my questions for you:

5. What is your favorite thing to do, besides blogging?
I lived with and was married to a female malignant narcissist for 12 years who has BPD and HPD. I endured significant trauma, gas lighting, degrading comments and was left feeling worthless. Now I'm out, living with C-PTSD and watching my kids be treated like textbook Golden Child and Scapegoat children. My daily struggle to get them the hell away from her claws. Have questions, comments, advice? Ask, tell, share. I am here to recover.
