New About Me Page

I wrote my last About Me page in 2014 and it’s was time for a major overhaul. Well, here it is. I’d love to hear feedback or any questions you have. Does this profile give you enough information about me to want to read my blog and follow me or do I need to expand?

Looking for the Light is a Health and Lifestyle blog started in 2005 under the name Defining Memories. I spent my early years blogging about my grandparent’s death, sharing the grieving process and caregiving tips, I openly talked about being sexually assaulted, growing up in the house of domestic violence, alcoholism, emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. I went thru the grieving process of losing my father to suicide in 1992. When it comes to baggage, I have it multiples.
In 2014 I needed a new direction, there wasn’t light at the end of my tunnel, as they say, I went to look for it and hoped to share my life lessons with others who may not be in the same place and Looking for the Light was born.
Today I’m a happy, mostly healthy, pretty adjusted woman who is working hard to lift others up at the same time I expand my horizons.

 

 


Looking for the Light

A portion of my post is dedicated to subjects on Chronic Illnesses, for which I have a few. Lyme Disease, and Immune Deficiency Disorder, Fibromyalgia, and Bipolar Disorder. I call myself an armchair advocate, but that I try to educate and share what I know and learn thru my blog not thru a charity or an agency. Due to my ongoing health issues, I’m not able to volunteer at this time.
I have a wide range of interests from Travel, World History, Ancestry, Education for Children, Global Warming, Animal Abuse, Reading, and above Writing is Photography.

        1. I rarely complain about mine! My life is so good, God has a way of working things out. The love of others and time can heal wounds. I’m not a bitter person and have forgiven others. Not forgotten, but forgviing. I’m truly blessed.

          You motivated me to join Audible! I joined yesterday, was the day after many years of not reading a complete book except for reviews. My Dementia makes reading books very hard but I think listening will sink in better. I bought Charles Spencer’s new book and one other. We’ll see,

          I have high hopes of expanding my mind! That’s one thing I admire about you, you’re always learning!

          Have you always had a sleeping problem? Is it your personality type? You know what I mean. I was an executive once too. Mine has come on quickly and I can’t pin point anything. I think after 25+ yrs my sleeping meds may need to increase. I’m off to write my doctor.

          Take care.
