    Thank you so much for answering my questions! I love learning a little more about other mental health bloggers that they may not have posted about. Dragon violence rocks!!!!

    I had a LiveJournal that I kept for about a year in 2004. Believe it or not, it still exists! It’s private though, and just ramblings and bullet points about what I did that day lol
