My name is Fiona and I've been hopping around the internets making friends and creating sparkly chaos for many years.
I love in Newcastle Australia with my partner and our dog. I have Borderline Personality Disorder and I'm working hard in therapy to learn to manage my emotions and my actions so that I can enjoy life and maybe one day be a more productive member of society.
I have a background as a speech pathologist but don't work in it any more, but I am still very interested in communication and inclusive education. My last job was as a disability support worker, and I think I'd like to do advocacy work or at least use my skills, knowledge and life experience to help others navigate and survive the obstacles this government puts up to accessing services and financial supports.
I currently rely on the JobSeeker payment to get by. I'm seeing the disability employment service, but not currently looking for work as I have way too many mental health obstacles and work to do on myself at the moment. I'm going to weekly group sessions and fortnightly therapy. I'm also trying to stay sober, because alcohol has not led me on a good path.
You can usually find me over on Twitter, hopefully not causing too many arguments.
I'd love if you could tip me some cash here for spending moneys, or maybe buy me a treat from my Amazon Wishlist? But I know times are tough all around, so virtual hugs are more than welcome!
