Hi! My name is Leigh, and I’m writing this from my couch in Kansas.

Photo of Leigh: very fair skin, dark rimmed glasses, dark brown hair about cheekbone length, wearing a sleeveless black shirt.

A little about me. I’m 37, married, and a mother to four kids. They are 17, 15, 11, and 7, so I’ve got some time on my hands now.

I deal with depression, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, fibromyalgia, dysautonomia, and inflammatory arthritis. I may have ADD, but I haven’t been diagnosed.

If I continue to define myself by what I can't do, or what normal people do, I will destroy myself." Quote from LauraChamberlain.co.uk

Faced with all of that, I find myself feeling like a failure most of the time. I recently had some breakthroughs, and discovered ways to change it. I started this blog to share them, because if I can help one person feel better about themselves, and more empowered about their life, I’ll have accomplished something.

flawed, & (still) worthy

(Update July 3, 2017: I’ve written a much better introduction on my About Me page. )
