Having grown up with obsessive-compulsive disorder and depression I chose creative writing as an outlet for my daily trials. In my teenage years I created many short stories in poetic verse,mostly of a dark nature,as a form of expression.
As I grew from a teenager to a young adult I recieved more recongnition of my work. However as my talents evolved so too did my symptoms progress. At one point in my life I was completely lost in despair and became very suicidal. After getting the help that I needed from many wonderful people including my loving family,I realized that many of the things I sought after were trivial at best.
I returned to the Catholic faith and began to concern myself with much more important matters that are disregarded by this world. I am now blessed with a peace and happiness that many do not know.
I live in the small town of Alton,Illinois where I take care of my father and continue to do holy hours at the adoration chapel in St. Anthony's hospital. I am an avid rpg video gamer and enjoy watching animation. I am also a animal lover and a huge fan of man's best friend.
