I’m a jinx. No, not the Pokemon, or the League of Legends character, nor am I lucky enough to own a clothing brand (though if I did it would be all soft clothing that is comfortable). I am a jinx in the spirit of the dictionary definition, an unlucky creature, in this case, one who lives with numerous chronic conditions and the absurdity and frustration that comes with it.
I decided to start a blog both as a form of catharsis for myself because, on top of being a spoonie, I’m also a nonconformist when it comes to many societal and cultural norms. And to create a safe space for others who are looking for validation. I’m by no means a writer, so I apologize if my content is bland and full of errors. Here’s hoping that doing this will gain me some skill.
I’m childfree; I have a nontraditional romantic life and am not spiritual or religious. Having spent far too many years married to an abusive man, I am working on healing and survival. I love animals and have rescued many. I can go days without speaking to people and am not bothered by it due to being quite the introvert. If you believe in such things, I am an INTJ personality.

I am an ally of the LQBTQ+ community, and any underrepresented and mistreated minorities (Black Lives Matter, people with disabilities, etc.)
Here’s a list of my chronic ailments:
- Allergies/chronic rhinitis
- PTSD/Anxiety/Depression/Mild OCD
- Arthritis (Osteo)
- Lower back pain that is recurring
- Interstitial Cystitis
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Eczema/contact dermatitis/atopic dermatitis
- Mild narcolepsy
I’m very fond of nature, animals, art, comics, sci-fi, fantasy, etc. I play video/board/card games, and I enjoy making things with my hands. My hobbies and animals are often how I manage to get through the day. Currently, I am teaching myself to crochet.
I will fill this in more if I receive enough questions about my life to add a piece in.
* I have nothing against faith or spirituality; I do not like organized religion and the mob mentality that often comes with it.
