Xe and Me

Who am I?

I am an Afghanistan war veteran who maintains sanity through semi-regular adventures with my service dog (Xe), socializing online on discord servers and sharing my creative expressions in art.

Amidst the chaotic times of the 2020 pandemic I discovered my painting abilities and began embracing my innate creative nature, moving from one medium to the next. As of 2021 my creatives include photography, writing, yarn magic (fiber arts), digital design and acrylic painting.

I have been diagnosed with an alphabet soup of mental illnesses, so it’s a topic I tend to migrate towards with my journal writings. If you’d like to know my thoughts on a thing, ask in the comments and we can discuss!

Research is revealing today that trauma — unhealed — can be passed down in both nature and nurture from one generation toContinue reading “Generational Trauma”
  • It’s ok to be ok
    We all know the popular song “it’s ok not to be okay” and that is also truth. We all struggle sometimes and it’s ok to speak up about it. Being in pursuit of healing since 2006 when I saw my first therapist, I have experienced literal decades of my life feeling broken and believing IContinue reading “It’s ok to be ok”
