About Me

I genuinely thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about me.

I’m a free-spirited woman whose opinions and ideas have greatly changed and evolved throughout my adult life, mostly as a result of a combination of circumstances, maturity and learning a lot of difficult life lessons – and learning some of them the hard way. am such a stronger person than I was a year ago, two years ago, five years ago. I have made an overwhelming amount of positive changes, I have haters–I have doubters–I don’t care about those people though, because anyone who doesn’t support me, see what I’m worth and how far I have come, isn’t worth my time and certainly isn’t worth my emotions. You don’t know what an accomplishment that is, me being able to say that. Big step forward.
I started this blog in an effort to get the creative juices flowing for me in the writing of my first book. It’s so wonderful having blogs. I have six. When I started this blog, it was my third blog but it has become my most popular one, although my Evil StepMonster Chronicles blog is also doing very well. Unfortunately out of respect for my family and the people I love, I have to take this blog down. I am very disappointed about it, however I’m thinking maybe I will replace it with another, cooler blog.  I think the WordPress Community is just amazing! When I started my first blog, I had never read another blog, but I knew the concept and what it was all about. Now I follow so many blogs I don’t even know how many, more than 50. It’s so important that you explore lots and lots of blogs–they teach you a great deal about your own writing and about being real… being yourself. I also learned the hard way that writing and blogging are very different, but thanks to the wise words of a very wise woman and someone I look up to very much (you know who are fellow WordPress blogger) I realized that, although writing and blogging are extraordinarily different, knowing how to do both can be a very rewarding experience because each has its own unique beauty and style. Each is its own unique art form.

The book I’m writing, which I hope to finish early next year, is the difficult and painful story of my very personal struggle with opiate abuse and, more specifically, my short but horrific battle with the very dangerous and very serious narcotic OxyContin which I have spent years researching and have a great deal of knowledge about–now, unfortunately; if only I knew before taking it what I know now…. and how it works is really, really scary. Because of the depression I experienced after getting off OxyContin–I don’t mean depression as in “a mild sadness” I’m referring to real, serious, all-encompassing, life-altering, mind changing major depression in which every single day I thought about dying–the depression had me in such a bad place that I was making continual bad choices which were making my life even worse than it already was, and I got so deep in this awful hole that I couldn’t breathe–I couldn’t get out of it, but even worse, it was pulling me down like quicksand and I felt like I was drowning a little more each day. Since I started my blog I have learned a great deal about people, about writing and blogging, about some very useful skills such as web design, and some tools which I have used in my own creative process which have been very useful and helpful; for example, some websites which feature writing prompts which really help me in times of writer’s block and I also came across a wonderful “writer’s toolbox” which has been a wonderful resource to me, and I’ve used quite a lot.

I hope you like my blog; please comment on my entries as well as subscribe to my blog and be interactive with me–I love that!

    My husband is going through oxy addiction and your story was so interesting and informative to read. I am trying to help him to quit but I don’t know the best way. Can you give me some guidance on this.

  2. Hi there Lulu! I read your post on oxycontine, I can relate to that, to being an addict I mean. Glad you share this. And as hard as it is to be sober, you do come out of it much stronger and you realise the small but beautiful things in life you´ve missed. You appreciate them much more.

    Another trait about you that I like, and about other people, is having passion. Whatever that passion might be. And then go out there and pursuing it. Writing is your passion same as mine (although I´ve been in a 11 year hiatus without writing and new to this social media-blog world), looking forward to reading more of your post.

    I´m glad you stumbled upon my nutty un paid blog, that way I´ve have found this blog.
