What? You actually clicked on this link? Shit…I guess I should say something, no?
I’m a twice divorced father of three (17-year-old twins and a 6-year-old) boys whom I love incredibly much. Right now my world revolves around them. I’m trying to get the twins ready for life after high school and my 6yo to simply make it through school.
I suffer from depression, a reality I finally acknowledged only a handful of years ago. Until that point I was in steadfast in my denial and refused to seek treatment until I was broken by my second divorce, of which my depression was largely the catalyst.
For years I blogged under the pseudonym Twindaddy on Stuphblog, a multiblogger site I founded and ran with Revis Edgewater and 1Jaded1. Then, in a severely manic state, I took my blog offline and closed up shop. Not a proud moment. Anyhow, I eventually decided to set up shop here.
I call this little space Mental Defecation, because, quite simply, this is where my mind poops. Anything my mind needs to get rid of ends up in this virtual toilet bowl. I’ve been known to write poetry, fiction, editorials, anecdotes, or even philosophical pieces on life. One thing I’ve always been while writing is brutally honest – about myself, my feelings, and about events that have come to pass. I try to add a dash of humor to most of my pieces as humor in writing is something I value as a reader, hence the line “sometimes funny, sometimes serious, but always genuine.”
