About

At 45, I’m starting to appreciate the fact that I’m brain different.  I hope to inspire others like me to never give up on life and to learn to not only appreciate their differences, but incorporate creative ways to help them thrive in the ordinary world.  I also hope that other people’s stories, comments and feedback will help sustain me when I’m in need.

Being brain different comes in many forms.  Some people have extreme anxiety, some have intellectual differences and some brains are different in ways that manifest socially.  Some differences involve processing speed, while others are affected by the way their brain processes their senses.  Mine is intensity; extreme highs and debilitating lows.  I have gifts that help me achieve at a higher levels than most, a leader some would have told you, but then the intensity changes and I am unable to follow through leaving people around me confused and occasionally disappointed.

Everyday I’m finding small creative ways to overcome the lows, but its a journey more than a destination.

Dare you to tag along…

    1. Hi, nice to meet you also. I’m very happy to hear you are nearly panic free and your daughter is doing well. That is a huge accomplishment. My son and I both have our share of mental health challenges, but currently are doing well. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I’m always up for a dare! So happy to have found your blog. I’m a 50 year old mum to two and my youngest has been suffering severe anxiety for years. I’ve had my share of stresses as well! I look forward to reading more of your blog and getting to know you.
