I can't have people call me shadowing so please call me Anna. Truth be told I have been called a few other names. My reputation has facts mixed with fiction, all coming together with one big," It's my life":)...
What I am trying to say is there is no one on this site worth my peace of mind.
So now let's get into my background:
In the 1980s, I became a teen growing up in Oregon, with my family. I remember my parents always stayed close to Salem as we got older when it came to moving. Salem was my home for many reasons, even living in other towns I always had an anchor back home. My Best friend and our families always had contact no matter where we were meaning, her house was like my home. Even as an adult if I needed to go home I knew where to go. It's not just the town, people, or spirit of the place I grew up, it's where I learned to survive, thrive, and walk those roads to adulthood making me the woman I am today.
I remember spending a lot of time there even as an adult, with my own child.
I grew up with a small close-knit group of friends even when my parents moved a lot, I had them. We were known as stoners, potheads, and metalheads, you can say it was all in the music and clothing style in the 80s..lol I'm just kidding most of us were high almost daily or on weekends.
Our typical weekend and summer nights were walking around town, kicking back at graveyards, parks, and lakes, and swimming at the local Corry at night. We had our spots to get together like coffee shops, arcades, nightclubs for Teens, and the Movies. We spent a lot of time at the malls in the arcades, music stores, and of course the food court...lol
We were teenagers!
You see, we were not so different.
Next Chapter: Teen, Girlfriend, Wife:
At the age of 16, I moved away from Salem with my parents. Shortly afterward I relocated to another town and High School where I met my daughter's dad. Long story short, We got married around my 17th birthday. No, I was not pregnant before, we went into an agreement as partners.
Unexpected and difficult things happen to even the best of long marriages. That is all I will say.
Being a Mother:
When my Daughter was born it was no looking back. Time to grow up, being a teenager sleepless nights, and a lot of uncertainty when it came to the future. Her Birth was not normal, anything but normal in fact. She was born Early, small, and fighting to survive. Long story short she was a lot of work but we got her over the dangerous points.
My little miracle is 34 years old today.
She is one of the strongest and toughest women I know.
Next Chapter: Education, Life, and Beliefs:
I have studied Psychology for well over 13 years, not just for a degree. You can say it's a personal interest of mine I pick up from time to time. I believe psychologists are drawn to their profession to clear their own shadowy demons hidden within. I believe that is why I have never become a counselor professionally.
Well, that was one of my educational Endearers;)
Early Childhood and adolescent Disabilities
That is just a few from a list of 3 different Colleges between taking care of my daughter, working, and dealing with my own health.
