Hello, and thank you for taking the time to learn more about me. This blog is my catharsis. For years, I pretended to be OK with what was going on with me. I put on a brave face, sucked it up, and buried my demons.
That did not go well.
Now, I present myself to you, raw, unfettered, and naked (metaphorically). I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) in 2008, followed by Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and Depression. I am struggling to come to terms with these demons. Instead of burying them within my subconscious, I am attacking them head on. I am owning my physical, mental, and spiritual limitations. I am, have been, and always will be a work in progress. I’m not where I want to be, but I’m getting there.
Born and raised in PA, I moved to San Diego, CA when I joined the Navy. Now, I’m a tech writer who is trapped in a well-paying but soul-crushing job. I’m just a middle-aged family guy who feels like he has something to say.
I am very proud to have graduated from Penn State in 1997 with a BA in English. Yes, I’m still trying to figure out what to do with it.
My true passion is San Diego Comic-Con. For five days out of the year, I get to spend time with 129,999+ people who love the same things I do. When I’m there, I feel safe and relaxed enough to be myself. I would like to carry that feeling with me through the other 360 days of the year. Thus, my blog.
