Introduction I'm a middle-aged woman living under the delusion that I'm much younger. I'm married, and have a canine/feline assortment. I am estranged from almost everyone, especially after they all couldn't run away fast enough when I was first diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and then I became suicidal--and dared to talk about it openly. It later turned out I don't have BP at all, but the mistake taught me a lot about people. I do have ADHD, which was not a surprising diagnosis. I work with people from all over the world. I probably could have done something great in my lifetime, but my brain didn't cooperate long enough for that to happen, so I proudly embrace my averageness, mediocrity, and limited contributions to the betterment of mankind. So much wasted potential. Oh well. I have a lot to say about that and many other things.
