Get to Know Me Better?
I’ve had this blog for quite a while (it used to be coffeetattoos.wordpress.com but I decided to upgrade recently) and never really introduced myself. So maybe it’s time for me to do that…??

You asked me how depression feels, and this is all I could come up with. It feels like I’m walking upstream through a current strong enough to pull me under four times. There are others with me but they are walking along the banks telling me to “just get out of the water.” But instead… Continue reading
Feeling Quite Overwhelmed
As I think I’ve said before, I’m majoring in American Sign Language Interpreting. Really I’ve been saying that for several years now. But as of this semester, I’m actually in the Interpreting program at my school. And being in the program has presented me with more work than I’m used to. I have chapters to read… Continue reading

Slowly Processing, Slowly Progressing – But I Am Moving Forward
When you’re feeling as low as I have lately, there’s really only one way you can go. And that’s up. You may feel like you’re not getting anywhere, even though you’re giving it everything you have. It may be taking time to process what happened to get you down where you are. But you know… Continue reading
I’m Enjoying Myself Right Now.. Am I Really Depressed?
I’m struggling. There… I said it. Getting up out of bed isn’t easy. Getting dressed isn’t easy. Reminding myself to eat isn’t easy. Functioning like a normal person isn’t easy. I don’t like this. I want to fight it off, but I can’t. I don’t have the energy for it. I’ve been like this for… Continue reading
Letter to Myself
Deaf You – I know things seem really difficult right now, but they won’t always be. You’re stronger than you think you are.

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.
