just me~

Hello, my name is Bridgette and I was born and raised here in Oklahoma. I have also lived in Texas for a few years. 

I do consider myself well educated. That is something I am proud of. I hold three college degrees, two associate and one bachelor. I have a college degree in Science, Nursing, and in Criminal Justice. I have experience in the medical field, pharmaceutical field, and in the healthcare system in general. I enjoyed my experience as well,  in probation and parole. I believe that our biggest hero’s are those that risk their own lives to save others!

I have many hobbies. I enjoy music and playing the guitar and keyboards. I am also a song writer.  I like to cook and crochet. I prefer to be outdoors in nature. Fishing is one of my favorite pass times.  I also enjoy building things and creating art. I prefer to drive trucks over cars, yet I have both! : ) My favorite people are the elderly. 

I am an inquisitive person always searching for the WHY!

I do have depression issues. I’ve been living with depression for as long as I can remember. I come from generations of bipolar, major depressives, alcoholics, drug addicts, and gamblers. I’m sure there are other issues, but my mind is blank at this time. I never took to the use of drugs and alcohol but I am a gambling addict and I have been diagnosed with major depression, ptsd, and anxiety disorders. I suffer from low self esteem, moodiness, and anger issues. 

I am a suicide survivor as well as an incest survivor! 

I often find myself feeling alone, yet I tend to isolate, go figure that one. I am currently 50 years old and maybe its about time I stop searching for something to write about, and just write about some of my experiences, the things I think about, my passions, and my feelings. 

My goal before I leave this world, is to find some peace, some type of feeling that I am okay with being me. My topics may vary greatly when writing, because my attitude and thought processes vary from time to time, so I will not limit myself.  I would also like to share some of my personal experiences. 

I am a woman of strength and weakness, I love myself, I hate myself. I am book smart, yet common sense stupid. Tell me something I can’t do, and I will try to prove you wrong! 

Thank you for stopping by!

I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself.

A bird will fall frozen from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.”

  1. I am so sorry you are suffering. Bridgette, most of us suffer in some form, it is what we do with ourselves that defines us, You are doing the best you can with the hand that was dealt you. You cannot forget your past, but hopefully, someday you realize the people that hurt you are the ones that should feel guilty. You deserve no shame or guilt. Sending hugs.

  2. I have read this story of yours around 20 times, and I still can’t believe it. I am glad that you are pushing forward and that you are working on the problem. Every day is a new fight, so please never stop fighting.

    P.S. I donated an insignificant amount of money to you, but that’s to let you know I feel you and like what you are doing. I promise you though that you will get a cut from my first paycheck! I love your writing immensely! Keep writing, and keep inspiring!

    P.S.2 You are the first one to find out my real name. Hahaha
