I’m Difficult Grl, a thirty-something female living with depression and anxiety–and an unfortunately large reservoir of bad memories and bad coping skills that feed them every day. (You’re welcome, assholes.)

I live in the Midwest with my extremely tall boyfriend and my extremely fat cat. I work in marketing, but sometimes I don’t… Like when my jerk brain tells my body it is in real physical danger and must avoid my office at all costs. During those times, you’ll find me running around the house doing literally anything that will distract me from thinking about the future.

I write about mental illness, the mundane, and trying to find direction in life. I dream about travel and escaping the confines of my desk job. ’cause life is hard. How else should I deal with it?
