About Me

I haven’t posted anything really about me on this blog. I will rectify that now.

Hi, I’m Natalie. I am a public librarian in NY. I have five fur babies, read mostly YA fiction (though my go-to for “big people” fiction books are fantasy and romance), I watch a lot of TV and have many many fandoms, and am plagued with some annoying, but not life threatening chronic illnesses (osteoarthritis, IBS, interstitial cystitis). I also have dysthymia (the nicer way of saying chronic depression) and anxiety disorder.

My brain likes to pick at things. It could be work related, life related, health related, it doesn’t matter. Today it’s picking at the IBS bloating and how it’s making me feel about my body. It’s ridiculous. I have no right to complain about how I look. I’m fine. If I mention it to my friends who are struggling with their weight, they rightfully roll their eyes at me. There are times when I let my brain be and times when I worry about why I’m thinking about. It’s never dull in my head, that’s for sure.

I’m also an open book and and over-sharer. If you read my tweets, you probably figured that out. I know I should be more private and I am working on keeping more things to myself, but most of the time, I honestly don’t care who knows what’s going on with me. It’s not like any of it is a federal secret or anything, but I should learn to keep some stuff to myself.

I will write more posts like this in between book reviews, I promise!

  1. I know what you mean about the “picking.” I have the monthly bloat and it’s awful. It’s like my brain is split in two–the rational half that says “You know it’s all water and it will go away” and the irrational half that says “YOU LOOK HORRIFIC!”

    Thinking about it, I vacillate between over-sharing and being intensely private. I will tell anyone and everyone about just how much phlegm I coughed up when I had bronchitis, but say nothing about my anxiety.

    Are your fur babies of the feline inclination?

    1. When my stomach is acting up, the bloat can be daily. My brain splits in the same exact way! It’s so aggravating!

      I will talk days about my anxiety, but if I’m sick, I will barely mention it. Brains are weird.

      I have 3 cats and 2 dogs.
