I am Kris, I am 34 years old and the mother of two special and wonderful children, Carmen and Cody. I am also engaged to Jason. We have been together several years now. After a deep depression and untreated bipolar, I nearly lost my family and myself. Now, I am starting to pull myself out of that black hole and am trying to fix mistakes of the past, starting with myself and my family. I gained a lot of weight and about 100 pounds of it was on purpose. I will be honest because perhaps someone out there may think they are also alone and seeing the courage I am trying to have, maybe they will also have courage to defeat this illness.

Personal Information:
I have lived all over the country, but I think I have found a permanent home here in Minnesota. I am working for the county parks and recreations. I absolutely love it. It is so physical and I burn a ton of calories. I am also in college and I homeschool my son. I have high hopes that I will succeed.

Other Information:
I enjoy almost any type of craft. I knit, I sew, I crochet, basically anything to keep my hands busy during the cold winter months! I have few close friends but the ones I include in my little world mean everything to me. I am a devoted and loyal person who believes in old world values and morals, so I usually mesh better with people closer to my age or older. I rarely meet a person younger that I can call friends, but I do have a few!

Find out who you are and do it on purpose.
