Hello! I'm Barb!

Hey Steemers! Nice to meet you!

I'm Barb. I read/ listen to about 70 books a year, usually on history, Buddhism, science fiction, historical fiction, and humor. I'm intellectually curious, love learning, running (slowly, but it happens), and helping people and animals. I'm a fundraiser, wife, peacemaker, feminist, Star Wars geek, writer, meditator with ADD and an autoimmune disease. I have a young dog and two senior cats. I love my life. It's not perfect, but it's the only one I got, so I'll take it.



What an Entry - Congratulations you are ahead.
That is Smile of Life. Awesome .
Well i have one of the worst autoimmune disease, its hard to live with it but i share same smile as yours.

Thanks for the advice! I'm glad to hear it's about community- I've been looking for it here.

Thank you for writing about your struggles with anxiety. I'm just on the other side of an episode of agoraphobia myself! Still struggling with anxiety but I've got a great team behind me.

you are welcome! yes! there are so many communities- let me know if you need help further navigating :) and you're welcome- it's a wonderful way to use the hashtags here and encourage engagement and also the lessening of the stigma around mental health. glad to hear you have a great team behind you! <3

I'm on a personal crusade to destigmatize mental health issues and learning disabilities, and I'm always super grateful when I find those looking to do the same!

My next writing project is to come up with guides for those with ADHD and their managers. I was asked to do this years ago for one of my staff members who appreciated how I managed her, however as someone else who has ADHD, I'm just getting around to it now!

I'm soliciting personal experiences and expert opinions, so if you know anyone or of a group, I'd love any help you can offer!

Thanks! I'll check it out.

Wow you must have a sharp mind going through all those books! If our lives were perfect now would they really be ours?

I listen to a lot of audiobooks while I drive, get ready in the morning, do chores, etc.

I agree. I don't expect life to be perfect. I do love my life, but I don't want to give anyone the false impression that it's perfect. That's such an easy thing to do on social media!
