Who Am I?

The Background

Born and raised in Wisconsin, took a brief sojourn out of state when my highschool sweetheart enlisted in the Marine Corps. We sealed the deal in 2004 at the cutest little church, and moved on out to California.
Our daughter, little Question was born about 10months later, in June of 2005.
She was followed by our son, Truck, who was born in September of 2007, about 4 weeks before we moved back across the country, via roadtrip, to Wisconsin.
I started school in 2008, while The Man started his apprenticeship in the millwright industry. I’m going for the RN program.
I’ve been unemployed since 2008, and in the first few months of 2009 The Man was laid off, and has been ever since.

But, who am I REALLY?
Really? I am a dork who tries to hard. I have some serious social anxiety, which can lead to me trying to overcompensate.

I am a smart woman with a barbed sense of humor. I use that humor both to diffuse situations, and to protect myself. I have a hard time trusting people, and humor is one of my layers of armor. Especially the self-deprecating kind.

I like to think I’m strong, I like others to think of me as strong, but in my heart, I know I have my fair share of weaknesses.

Deep down, I’m a sensitive soul. Sometimes a little too much of a sensitive soul. I care about people, and hate to see them suffer. Even when they bring it on themselves.

I’ve battled with depression off and on almost since I can remember. And? I have chosen some really poor methods of coping in the past. I still struggle sometimes not to give in to the urge to use some of those methods.
One of my greatest fears is that my kids will have to deal with this same issue.
