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! UPDATE: As of March 7th, 2018 my diagnosis has been changed to Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Hypermobility Type which is another connective tissue disorder very similar to Marfan Syndrome
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).
