I realized I hadn’t come straight out and said it.
Why did I make this announcement?
When I decided to make a blog I thought a lot about my “voice”. I decided that open honesty was the way to go.
I made A Place to be Real to be totally myself. In doing this I hope I help other feel like they can be totally themselves.
My diagnosis is a big part of me. I deal with this everyday.
I mean I’ve been up for the past two days obsessively posting animal subjects on Facebook. From funny and cute to downright disturbing.
Last night I went through 400 comments making new friends so I have lots of animal friends.
Previously I made hundreds of author friends because I wanted to learn how to write better. Those people aren’t into giving writing tips their into writing books and promoting them on Facebook. I barely even speak to any of them. I read true crime and their into Gothic novels. You know with half naked people on the front by a lake in the moonlight. This just isn’t me.
Before that it was Farmville…
Now will I get bored with this animal rights movement (like I do everything else) and have a ton of pictures of mutilated animals going down my page incessantly? Maybe.
What has me encouraged about the whole animal thing is that I’ve always been into animals mostly dogs even when I was little. So this could be a great building block in my foundation. Time will tell…
And I’m making real friends. It’s fun. But for me everything is fun at first then bam bored!
I’ve actually been alternating between Facebook and my new Twitter (and Google Plus a little). I have over 300 followers already. Most of them useless but it’s a start.
I’ve come a long way with this disorder. But since boyfriend’s been here I’ve pretty much just been winging it. It’s too hard to deal with my issues if I’m always confronted with his. And he has myriads of issues!
He’s moving out the third so I’ll have my life back.
I’m a little nervous about being completely alone. It’s going to be an adjustment. It’s important that I do this though.
I need to establish a routine of some sort. I need to work at getting healthier. I mean all around health. Inside and out. Business and personal. A total overhaul.
I’ll take it slow. Change doesn’t come overnight.
Take Care Everyone!
