Twisted, tormented spirit.
Born and bred in the great forest’s of Oregon.
Raised hugging trees
talking to unicorns
burying my feet in the sand
being sad
reading books
Not much has changed.

I write to survive.
My thoughts fill me and fill me and fill me,
until they leak onto the paper.
It is a fearsome thing to behold.

I am crazy.
I have a past full of
depression, addiction, self harm, abuse, suicide attempts, therapy and medication
to prove it.

Join me on this daring adventure.

  1. Great About Bio! I really admire your honesty. It’s hard to be open about mental health issues, but it is the bravery of people like you that inspires me to try and face the struggle rather than run away from it. I too find blogging a great way to help figure oneself out. I look forward to reading your blog. Kam

  2. you are beautiful and absolutely refreshing and you are unique, but most importantly is appears that you are accepted for who you are. That is worth more than anything!

  3. Hey there Erica,
    As a mom of two teens and a former sad youth (spent a lot of time with tears, a diary and the door closed), I’m so very glad you found the spirit to turn your life in a new direction. There is much, much more good stuff to come. Even the stuff that’s not so great, can be made better with a strong spirit and you’ve got that in spades. Wonderful, welcoming blog and congrats on finding succeess with it too.

  4. Wow! What an inspiration you are. Your writing connects with all the senses. I am new to your blog, but I have already smiled, cried and felt some of your pain. Thank you for letting us into your life. I wish you all the luck in the world xx
