Many BIG BIG Changes!

Long time no see kiddies! I have missed sharing my stories here, my autobiographical musings! I have been riding the tide of my Bipolar Rollercoaster, flying up, down and around, losing my grip at times, nearly flying out of my seat! 

The financial mind blocks I seem to be forever plagued with continue unabated….This month 4 (four!) bounced check fees, and a long sob story to boot, so get out the world’s smallest violin! Sure, it could have been different, if I had been diligent in using the tools I learned in PT. 1.Write things down 2.keep all receipts 3. CHECK BALANCE EVERYDAY! 4.Journal. Journal. Journal 5.Keep all Suncoast Appointments ! 6.Make lists when going shopping !

.  I sold a bunch of art at the Morean  Arts Center, but the money mistakes wiped out any advancements! Ah , Well… Onwards and upwards!  Now that I am logged back in I intend to get my other blog moving again too! See you soon !ACF1F19A-E357-4A7F-A967-D4BEE6E3E198

 

By Susan T. Martin

I am an Artist, Poet and Author. A Survivor of Violent Sexual Abuse and Rape, I have lived thru Severe Domestic Violence, Twenty Three years of Addiction and Alcoholism, Family Dysfunction, Chronic Pain, Dependence on Opioids, and 2 Venomous Snake Bites...I have Been Stabbed, Shot at, Tied to a Tree and Choked Unconscious. A Quarter Horse Rolled on Me, as did a Lawn Tractor. I also Wrecked a Harley into a Tree! I also have PTSD and Rapid Cycling Bipolar Disorder, and spent my 18th birthday in a Locked Psychiatric Ward. I am so much more than this: I feel like a tiny seed that sprouted in a desert, and now has grown into a Passion Vine. My Art is my Voice, Screaming, Crying, Praying, Loving, Laughing, Healing- all in Riotous Color...
