Hello. My name is Christi. I’m a 30 something year old. At the age of 13, I was formally diagnosed with depression later attributed to PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and I also suffer from a chronic form of the auto-immune disorder called Mucha Habermann disease. Living in Indianapolis, IN, I have married, divorced, and currently have three children. My children are my heart and soul, as well as the main source of hope in this world.
I am known as a shy, dorky, opinionated, intelligent, caring, understanding, and strong woman who is prone to random acts of bitchiness and stupidity. I have no preconceived notion of fame, nor do I expect anyone to even like anything that comes out of this head of mine. I am here for nobody else but myself. I can be bold. I can be abrasive. I rarely apologize for anything I think, feel, or say. I’m of the simple minded view that if you don’t like me? Not my problem.
