About Me

Chronically ill spoonie on healing journey. Intentionality and connection with others is what I joined for. I have a dark sense of humor, a whimsical weirdness that many find endearing. I would much rather do laundry or a casual hang out than a fancy dinner. Movies and shows were always an escapism growing up and when I get hooked on a show I love discussing and watching movies or reading together. They tend to be campy and what some would consider cheesy but that's ok. I get along with most people but there is an almost indescribable feeling when you first meet someone and you instantly click and feel so good in their energy and presence. Would love to see if we have that. I am trying to make my way out west as I lost my home due to mold and have been very sick ever since (mixed with autoimmune fun). I have lost so much due to health and I'm not even sure what I'm looking for anymore but alas, here we are on this marble! I am spiritual but not religious. I don't care what you believe as long as you are kind (and funny is always a plus).
