So, Who the Heck Am I?

in #introduceyourself2 years ago (edited)

So, who am I? I'm not sure of the answer to that myself.

What comes to mind:

  • Canadian woman
  • Writer
  • Artist
  • Mother
  • Animal rights activist
  • Vegan
  • Mental health informer
  • Lover of trees
  • Taker of photos... Wanna be photographer
  • Intrigued by paranormal
  • Seeker of enlightenment
  • Intelligent yet, quite the dimwit at times

I went to school for Advertising and Marketing Communications, which I love. I enjoy researching random topics- it's not uncommon that I find myself panicking when I hear the birds chirping at 4:30am and I have a bazillion tabs open; the first tab, "how to clean a Keirg" and, the last tab, "weird experiments in history".

I'm a writer. Perhaps that's why I stay up late. Perhaps I write because I stay up late. I've always had sleeping issues; before I was a year old my Mother took me to the Doctor to address why I slept in the day and awake at night. I guess that's just how some people are wired; backwards.

I'm a Mother of a special needs child who is a tough cookie. My Daughter experiences FASD, Anxiety, ADHD, and Oppositional Defiance Disorder. I'm worn out before the days begin and I don't help the matter with insomnia.

I've personally been diagnosed insomniac, anxious, borderline personality, depressed, and PTSD. I should be diagnosed OCD but, I'm sick of medical appointments. I get it already, I'm broken.

In the summer months my Daughter and I essentially live outside. That said, I've noticed outdoor activities have decreased as both our mental and physical health have decreased. We love to hike, parks and your standard outdoor life wanderings. I don't understand why everyone drives five minutes to the corner store when it's nice out- and that's coming from someone as fucked up as myself.

I swear a lot and care not what others think about that. They're words- get the fk over it. I love musik, art, dancing, and am disgustingly addicted to Netflix.

I guess you could say I'm a over consumer of things that I love.

Happy to meet you. Can't wait to connect. 💕

HEY GREAT TO MEET YOU! WELCOME TO STEEMIT AND THE STEEM BLOCKCHAIN! (NOT SHOUTING JUST BLIND, I CANT SEE THE SHAPE OF SMALL LETTERS) BUT! MY SON IS 13 AND HAS HIGH FUNCTIONING AUTISM AND ADHD AND IT IS A LOT OF WORK! BUT I CAN BE PROUD OF THE WORK THAT I PUT IN, NOT HEALTHCARE BUT ME. HES AN ALRIGHT KID! I DEAL WITH MEDICAL ISSUES, SO I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU MEAN BY THE APPOINTMENTS. I USE CANNABIS TO RELIEVE MY SYMPTOMS. THE HEALTHCARE FIELD IS JUST FOR EXPERIMENTING. ALL THEY WANT TO DO IS GIVE YOU PILLS AND ASK HOW YOUR SYMPTOMS ARE INSTEAD OF DOING WHAT THEY NEED TO. BUT I THINK YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT! IN ANY RATE MY NAME FRANCESCA @PRETTYNICEVIDEO. IF YOU EVER HAVE QUESTIONS, JUST ASK! ALSO IM PART OF A GREAT CANNABIS COMMUNITY. GREAT PEOPLE.

Greetings and Welcome to the Steem Community!

Welcome to the community, Anaclark! I hear you on having a plethora of tabs open at all times on your computer. I'll get rid of one just to add three others when a thought pops into my head. 😁 Many of us on this platform are night owls so you're in a great place to have others to interact with during those wee hours.

One of my friends has also had it with doctors and continuously swears that she'll be publishing a book someday about being a, as she calls it, 'medical misfit'.

Love that you and your daughter use summer as intended, outside and enjoying it. I wish that more people would do the same.

I hope that you have a wonderful day and please feel free to ask any questions that you may have.


We encourage everyone to explore the various posts and to leave personal comments on those that you wish (for example - thoughts regarding the content or a sharing of a similar experience you've had). This platform thrives through interaction as it's the best way to build relationships with other Steemians while finding communities and initiatives that peak your interests.

We like to advise bloggers to cite if images, videos, etc. used in their posts are of their own creation. This practice gives the creators an opportunity to have it clearly labeled that the works portrayed are the rightful property of the party posting it.

Another tip that we share with everyone is to be careful of copyright infringement when using material that is not of their original creation. Content (for example - images from a website) that grants permission for reuse is acceptable for content creators to utilize within their posts provided there is appropriate attribution to the source. Here's a link that will provide you with more information.

Awww. I already 💜 your presence on here.
You're real and raw, and this world needs more beautiful souls like yours.
I have been diagnosed with mental health issues as well, and for some reason, I can relate so much to when you say " I get it already, I'm broken".💔

Much love from a canadian to another:)
I wish you a wonderful journey on Steemit. xxxx

Awe. Thank you so much. I have never been too open (or even aware) of the severity of mine and my Daughter's mental (and physical) health- this is a little scary for me as I've always presented the strong, capable persona. I'm still a little unsure about how open I'm being but, messages like this pour a cup of certainty and strength into the recipe. 💕

you are welcome

I was homeschooled as a kid. Some thought I might have had ADHD, etc. Mom helped me. I made it past it. So, I may have or had things like autism, Treacher Collins Syndrome, etc. So, I say that to say that I know it can be tough. Yeah, hiking, music, art, dancing, binge watching shows on Netflix, sounds like fun.
