A twenty-something-year-old chronically ill artist living in the Pacific Northwest. Hoping to one day pursue a career in medicine, if I ever get well enough to do so.
I’m a real-life mutant/cyborg, so that’s pretty cool! One of the illnesses I have (Marfan Syndrome) was caused by a spontaneous mutation of the Fibrillin-1 gene in my genetic code. Thus, technically a mutant. Didn’t really get any superpowers out of the deal, but I am tall and I have really long dexterous fingers that are good for doing art and craftwork!
Another one of my conditions is called Gastroparesis and in August of 2016 I had surgery to place a gastric stimulator implant and a feeding tube, upgrading me to cyborg status (and giving me the idea for a cool username)
My life may not be turning out the way I thought it would (honestly, whose does), but I try to keep a good sense of humor about things most of the time.
I am the momma to a very handsome cat named Mr. Ollivander (Ollie).
