“Now, this is a story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute
Just sit right there…”
Okay, so I’m not a prince, and I live in Beverly Hills (my neighborhood’s name…I swear…we have a sign in the median and everything. It’s right next to Arcadia!), not BelAir, so I’ll quit with that.
a high school English teacher
a PhD student who may be ABD FOREVER
a track coach
a crappy distance runner
a slightly less crappy triathlete (I’m decent in the water & on the bike)
a dog mom
and more than a little crazy.
I suffer from a cycling mood disorder, pretty much a nice way of saying Bipolar, with which I was diagnosed in 2011. I’m certain I’ve been crazy for far longer than my time post diagnosis. I’m a suicide attempt survivor, but I have lost two close friends to suicide. I love life and my jobs and my dog, but some days are just a little too hard…
