Here i am!

1.Do you do anything creative like art,poetry,singing,writing or playing music,dancing or other?
Yes!! Ballet, writing poetry, singing, ballet, and now i am trying my hand at writing rap lyrics. I love it even when i am bad at it!
2.Were you been abused as a child or teen?
Yes...i was. I lived with my abusers (biological parents) until early February of 2011. It is painful to describe right now and painful to think about always. Physical and emotional and lots of painful scars, esp. from my mother.
3.Do you collect dolls or toys?
Sort of--i had a HUGE collection of Disney Princess stuff. Dolls, figurines, tea sets, blankets, pillows, everything you can imagine. I sold about half of it and donated the proceeds to an anti-child abuse organisation and what i didn't sell, i gave to a few little girls who live near me & my fiance's house, or donated to a local thrift store. I still have a couple porcelain dolls--and i have a few things of The Little Mermaid that i got afterward. I do collect mermaids in general, esp. Ariel, and also Snow White. I also have a few Calico Critters playsets and families which *shifty eyes* I occasionally play with and reenact how i would have liked my parents to act.
4.At what age did you start dating?
21. I was a bit of an ugly duckling, to say the least. I'm not the kind of girl most would date...not "sexy" or "hot".
5.Do you have any physical conditions? Like migraines,ibs,arthritis,fybromialga etc,,?
I have gastroparesis, which is very painful. It's basically gradual paralysis of the digestive system due to nerve damage. In my case caused by poor nutrition and frequent food borne illness as a small child.
6.Do you suffer from depression?
7.Do you suffer from anxiety?
Sort of...panic attacks from PTSD.
8.Do you suffer from PTSD or other?
Yes...only diagnosed in September 2011. My fiance/Prince Charming/Mr Right had me go to a psychiatrist and tell them about the abuse and the misdiagnosis with Bipolar Disorder. I was diagnosed as having PTSD and depression.
9.Are you shy?.
Sometimes, esp. around people i don't trust, or when i have flashbacks. But if i trust people i cut the rug and hang out with everyone!
10.Are you on any anti-depressants or anti anxiety medication or any other psychotroptic meds for psychiatric reasons?
Not anymore!! :D I'm really happy about that, especially since i am getting better now without them!!
11.Do you have a hopeful future outlook?
Yeppers peppers. I worry about the details but i somehow always know that things will work out for the best.
12.Do you take life one day at a time or plan ahead for the future?
I worry about the future, but i generally take life with a relaxed attitude.
13.Do you trust easily or is it very hard for you to trust?
I trust very easily...but if you hurt me i won't trust you ever again.
14.Do you like art? If so what are your favorite kinds?
Yes!!! Degas, because i love ballet...Hieronymous Bosch, fun esp. at Halloween for scaring myself...ancient Egyptian temple art...religious and spiritual artwork...fantasy/sci-fi related (Boris Vallejo, Jonothan Earl Bowser, Amy Brown), and of course, Disney!!
15.What kind of music do you listen to usually?
Hip-hop/rap/R & B, reggae, 90s music, Christian rock/punk, Celtic New Age, and Disney soundtracks make up a large part of my collection :D
16.Name 3 favorite movies.
Aww, only 3? Ok...if one saga or genre counts as one big movie, then....
1 Disney Princess films 2 Star Wars Saga 3 LOTR Trilogy
(Sorry if it's cheating!!)

17.Why did you join this community?
I don't want to feel alone anymore. I want to know i am not alone...
