I’m really just testing out the features of this site in this post but I figured I could kill two birds with one stone and throw out some quick little (and random) tidbits about myself in the process…

My name is not Geranium. 

Geraniums are not my favorite flower.

No name in this journal will be “real”.

Red is not my favorite color but it is my color for 2018.

“Revenge” is my word for 2018. 

Don’t worry, I don’t fully understand the use of a color/word of the year, either. But I like it.

I live in the US.

I have been married for 15 years. 

I love my husband dearly. Likely to the point of obsession.

Let’s call my him Oak. 

We have children. A handful of them. 

I do not work outside the home but I do have a “job” in the home.

I am religious.

I’m not religious in the sense you may assume. 

I’m an INTJ (according to the internet).

I was raised by a single mother.

My mother and I have never been on friendly terms but we do still talk.

I never knew my father. He died before I could.

I’m a sex addict. 

I’m kinky.

My current goals include weight loss, mastering personal finance, writing a book, and establishing a “hobby” Instagram account. 

Because I like to keep busy.

I don’t have friends, really. 

My husband is my best friend and I his. 

We are unapologetically co-dependent. 

The entire point of this journal is to fill-in for some aspects of having a good friend who isn’t my husband.

I’m on medication for my depression and anxiety. 

I was abused as a child. I do have PTSD from that.

I do cuss quite a bit.

I don’t particularly like myself but I also tend to like other people even less.

I’m a history nerd.

And a bookworm.

I don’t bite. 

I suffer from Resting Bitch Face.

I do have deep emotions but I rarely openly emote. 

I want to be a writer. 

It embarrasses me that I want to be a writer and I don’t know why.

I’m running out of things to list.

  1. You and I have many things in common. I don’t give my real name so I can be real and don’t have to worry about hurting anyone’s feelings. I am on Disability for Depression and PTSD. I too was sexually abused as a child and teenager. And the biggest thing is …. I too am a writer, and what I love to write is Erotica. I too am a kinky person when I am writing. I am very religious and been proven there is a God many ways. But I do swear a lot. especially when I am writing. I was a single mom with 2 until I married the first time, and then he passed away after we had 2 more kids. So I ended up being a single mom of 4. I have remarried. I cant say my husband is my best friend anymore because he cheated on me, but I do love him and we are working it out. I love to journal and just started here not to long ago because I want to have a friend and honest opinions.

    So welcome to Journaling.

  2. We do sound really similar! Thanks for the welcome and sorry to hear we have so much in common. Because this life is shit, isn’t it? With so much more, I suppose, but so shitty, too. I don’t wish it on anyone.

    I also am a big fan of erotica. I don’t write it as much as I read it but the truth is my ultimate dream is to be an erotic romance writer. Maybe someday.
