Illness + Creature = Mental Picture Battle

Depression Demons

Anxiety Aliens

Bipolar Boogeymen

Yes, each mental illness I deal with becomes a weird/evil creature with the same starting letter. I’m strange like that. But it makes me feel like I’m battling something I can picture.

If I didn’t do what I just said, I would feel like I’m battling someone with an invisibility cloak on. I can’t see them. I don’t know where they are. I can’t protect myself. I can’t rally the army and warn them of the coming attack.

But with these mental pictures,  I can stab at their hearts and cut limbs off and decapitate them. I feel like I can actually do something.

The war will never be over, but it will be one that I rise to victory with my army in battles.

About Me

Hello! Welcome! My name is Katy!
You can find me drinking coffee until it’s time for wine. Currently have 5 tattoos, but plans for more are in the works.
I’m a birthmom over 8 years post placement. I’ve been in a birthmom support group since November 2018, and will be leading my own come May 2023.
On Sunday mornings you can usually find me in the nursery or on the production team at church.
Various times throughout the year, you can find me staying with someone’s dog(s) while they’re away on a trip – so don’t be surprised if there are stories or pictures every so often.
