Talking about myself makes me feel really self-conscious so I’ll try to keep it brief.
I have a congenital heart condition which I’ve had three open heart surgeries for. I now have a metallic heart valve and have to take daily medications and regular blood tests for the rest of my life. I’m doing pretty good, I think, although there are side-effects from the surgeries and medications that impact my life.
I also have some mental health issues (which yes, are partly due to my heart condition and surgeries). Depression and social anxiety are the main ones. I’m a bit of a recluse due to this and mostly stay home with my cats, Silas and Otis. I’ve always been rather introverted though so this fits me fine, most of the time. I does affect my ability to get a job though (i.e. I’m unemployed).
I used to be a music blogger at various sites until I got my own blog, I Am The Crime which is archived here.
I’ve studied a bit of psychology, sociology, literature, and creative writing.
My tumblr blog mostly consists of art, music, fashion, pop culture, and photos of cats. There used to be a lot more politics but I’ve decided to cut back on that for the sake of my mental well being.
If you have any comments or questions, feel free to send them my way. I promise I don’t bite! (my cats might though, if you’re rude).
