I maintained for over 3 years, but stress over the last several have led me to eating a lot of feelings and internalizing some very negative messages from a very bad job situation. It has taken me nearly 2 years to fight back from that internalized negativity and PTSD. I have been at my new job ...

It has taken me nearly 2 years to fight back from that internalized negativity and PTSD. I have been at my new job for 3 months now and I finally feel like I have a solid floor on which I can begin to rebuild and get back on the path to the person I know I can be.

I sadly have never been able to attend any local cons. I thought about doing the one that was in KC this year, but it conflicted with my drill schedule. Darn things always taking place the first weekend of the month.

It is a big plan of mine to go to one sooner rather than later. We do the music fest thing each summer so sometimes it's hard to fit a lot else into the schedule.

Columbia is so small for the size of town it is, I wouldn't be surprised if we've crossed paths. I actually serve at Flat Branch so if you're ever there and see a short little red head, that's me!
