My bright is too slight to hold back all my dark.

...all the tears I cried never salted any wounds...

30 September 1978
I am 34, married and have a 12 year old daughter. We live in Minnesota. I am a Registered Nurse working full time at a Transitional Care Unit as the Nurse Manager. I like to knit, especially socks and hats, but have limited time for leisure activities between work, chores, and happy-kiddo-time. I am a believer in the greater good. I despise the republican agenda. I am pro-choice, pro-gay marriage, pro-universal health care, and anti-war. My journal is mostly friends only because Im paranoid and discuss personal issues. I do not need strangers evaluating my mental health and leaving snide comments sending me into an emotional black hole for days on end </sarcasm>. If you are interested in reading, let me know. Maybe we can arrange something. Got any yarn?

"That's the thing about depression: A human being can survive almost anything, as long as she sees the end in sight. But depression is so insidious, and it compounds daily, that it's impossible to ever see the end. The fog is like a cage without a key."
