An Introduction

I’m a 26 year old lady living in Dallas, TX.

My life partner is my terrier mix, Professor Pomona Sprout.


So why am I here? Good question. I was laid off from my job last week when the company went out of business. I knew there were financial troubles so it wasn’t entirely unexpected, but I spent two years working there and was left without severance. My accrued PTO was lost and I don’t have health insurance for the first time in my life.

I have a long history of depression and anxiety. All of this uncertainty is unsettling for me. My medications aren’t cheap. Therapy isn’t cheap. Nothing in the healthcare system is affordable, particularly for those coping with mental illness.

So my life has been shaken up a bit. It’s uncomfortable, but I think it might be a good thing. I’m going to write about my life going forward. I’m not sure if it will even be interesting, but one can hope. Let’s see what tentative adventures await.
