Spirit Animal Blog Award

12 Jan


I was nominated for this award by 21andsensory at https://21andsensory.wordpress.com/. Check out her blog if you have the chance – it is a great blog about being an adult with sensory processing disorder

Here are the rules:

  1. Post the award picture on your blog


2.  Write a short paragraph about yourself and what your blog means to you

My name is Marci, I’mm 33 single (but maybe not for long) gay female.  I go to a couple local community colleges and am looking forward to transferring to UC Davis in the fall along with finally moving out.  My blog began 6 years ago as a place for me to vent when I was very un-well mentally.  I’ve gotten better and relapsed within those 6 years and try to have my blog as an authentic representation of what it’s like to live with severe mental illness.  I have Borderline Personality Disorder, PTSD, Sensory Processing Disorder, and Schizoaffective Disorder Bipolar type.   What’s that mean?  I hear voices, have rapid mood swings, sensory issues mostly with touch, flashbacks, night terrors (which I haven’t had in awhile), deep depressions, abandonment fears, and a lot of anxiety.  However, I am not just my disorders so I blog about other things that are going on in my life, music I relate to, poetry, LGBT info, other mental health information from other sources or blogs.  I have 1,014 followers, my own blog FB page, and over 3,000 posts here.  My blog means a lot to me.

3.  If you could be any animal, what would you be?

I would like to be an owl.  They are wise and noctornal.  I see them kinda being loners but still being majestic.  I’d probably be a little afraid to fly but I’d get over that.

4.  Pick ten nominees.

  1. Midnight Demons about chronic pain and chronic suicidality.
  2. Living with Borderline Personality Disorder about Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and mental health.
  3. Pride in Madness about mental health in an unashamed sort of way.
  4. Sunshine After the Rain is another blog about daily living with Borderline Personality Disorder.
  5. Life in a Bind: BPD and Me  another blog about Borderline Personality Disorder this one is more focused on lengthy posts of topics related to the disorder or therapy.
  6. And the World Spins Madly On a blog about Borderline Personality Disorder, eating disorders, addiction, and recovery.
  7. Closer to Happiness 
  8. Maybe getting there
  9. Understanding me and her
  10. Dear Darling Sanity
