About me

Occupation Disabled
Location Somewhere Out There, Michigan, United States
Introduction Late 20's. Jewish. Disabled. Femme. Lesbian. Feminist. Booknerd. INFP. Pisces Sun, Scorpio Moon, and Aries Rising. Quirky. Fierce. Fiery. Full of life. Nerdy. Optimistic Realist. Autodidact. Bit of a hippy. Makeup and skincare addict. Have Chronic Intestinal Pseudo Obstruction, intestinal failure, EDS, probable Mito, blah, blah, blah. I'm still a mystery case and on the severe end of it all. I'm TPN (IV nutrition) dependent and don't eat. I'm on disability and on a journey to make the best of things. Living with chronic malnutrition and lots of chronic pain. But it is what it is. I'm a big nerd and love to read and write. My major was in Middle East Studies and if I hadn't gotten sick I wanted to work for the Foreign Services or make aliyah to Israel and work in the government there. I still love foreign affairs and Middle East culture and history. I'm a political junkie as well, especially with Israeli politics (Tzipi Livni is my role model). I had big dreams but it seems life has other plans for me, just not sure what.
Interests Judaism, Israel, Writing, Reading, Foreign Affairs, International Relations, Mitochondrial Disease, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Gastroparesis, Chronic Intestinal Pseudo Obstruction, Living with chronic illness, drawing, art, photography, watching movies, music, Israeli politics, politics in general, finding myself, making the most of life
