About

My name is Kathleen (formerly known as Michelle). I am technically middle aged although I’m planning on living until I’m at least 100 so I’ve got four more years until I reach the halfway point.

I’m an atheist and a vegan and my favourite colour is green. Well, not really. My favourite colour is iridescent but I’ve been told by umpteen billion people that’s not really a colour so I just say green now. I’m a  demi-romantic asexual (complete with five cats). I described myself as boring once and was promptly told I’m too colourful and sparkly to describe myself as boring; which is one of the nicest things anyone’s ever said about me. In real life I’m the person who says “hi” every time someone enters a room… even if I’ve already said “hi” to them six times in the past hour. I tend to wear lots of bright colours, mismatched socks, and my running shoes have sparkly silver laces. I’m autistic and struggle with major depressive disorder and severe anxiety. I’ve written two novels (one of which has been self published here) but stopped writing more due to depression. I’m slowly working on a new book now.

My oldest child is Kait (previously known as Emma). Kait’s twenty-one years old and dating Josh. She’s struggled with anxiety and depression for years and has been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder. She and Josh have an adorable orange tabby named Parrot and a tiny calico named Munchkin.

My youngest child is Emma (formerly Julie). Emma is nineteen years old. When I started this blog she identified as bisexual then bigender, agender, and finally gender fluid. Now she’s female, with the pronouns she and her.

Emma has also been diagnosed with high functioning autism. She also struggles with anxiety and has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder (type II).

Emma is obsessed with electronics, especially computers, and loves rebuilding them. I constantly have electronic bits and pieces all over the apartment. We don’t have cable but she’s watched every single episode of Doctor Who on Netflix and is fascinated with The Jimmy Dore Show on YouTube. Her goal is to someday work with computers, maybe as a programmer… hopefully something with robotics. Emma enjoys playing Five Nights At Freddys, Fear, Minecraft, and Garry’s Mod. Her favourite colour is purple (with pink a close second) and she has a burning need to acquire every purple thing she sees, whether she needs it or not. Emma also loves driving RC cars, trucks, drones, and the occasional boat (almost as much as she loves taking them apart to see how they work).

All three of us are atheists and both Emma and I are vegan.

The easiest way to reach me is by sending me a message via Facebook. The next best is to email me at secretmom@email.com. I also have a seldom used Twitter account, a regularly used Instagram account, and my above mentioned often used Facebook page. I don’t have any other accounts (other than my personal Facebook account which is under a completely different name) so if you see another, please let me know.

I got added to a blogroll which requests being shared if added. I don’t actually have a blogroll, something I should add someday, but can share it here. Feel free to go wander through Transiness.

The graphics on my banner were all made by Studio Flergs. Run to her page… she’s got amazing stuff! Everything in the banner is from her Choose to Shine collection, except for the twinkle in Julie’s eye, which is from her contribution to the Commencement May Digiscrap Parade.

Happy reading 🙂

    • Well it’s Jeremy who identifies as “fabulous”, from his aqua hair right down to his red painted toenails. He’s got about 25 cents to his name and stinks at doing dishes. You two will just have to work something out 🙂

  2. It is nice to read about others who are autistic (not aspie) and gender divergent, given how often have been told the two are mutually exclusive. Or at least, formally diagnosed GID and autism, which I suppose is not exactly the same thing but close. Thank you for writing.

  3. Hey there! I accidentally unfollowed you! I’m sorry! I’m back. Just wanted to let you know it wasn’t anything personal-just me not paying close enough attention when I’m poking around on the iPad screen.

  5. Just to let you know, as part of this years bloggging101 course, today’s assignment was that I had to read about 5 new topics and 5 new blogs. This is one of the topics I read and it really touched me. It has given me a greater understanding about the issues transgender people face.

  6. Hi, I really like your blog. You come across as incredibly honest and as though you don’t have anything to prove, to me at least that is a refreshing change 🙂

  7. Hi,

    Thanks for the outstanding posts.
    I liked reading them.

    I am running the I.A.C – Inscribink Authors’ Circle. We are a developing website with 10K+ followers on Facebook.

    Would you be interested in sharing one of your articles on our website ?

    Or, would you be interested in being one of the writers on our ever developing website project?

    Thanks for considering. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Regards,

    Hawk G.

  8. When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!

    • I have absolutely no idea how to stop that. I actually tagged the entire Liberal Party as spam (and I support them) because I couldn’t figure out how to stop getting so many emails. Can you uncheck the “Notify Me” box? That’s my only guess but, chances are, if it were me, I’d never be able to find it again.

  9. Your blog is currently included on our Actually Autistic Blogs List (anautismobserver.wordpress.com). Please personalize your blog’s description by selecting “About the list/How do you want your blog listed?” from the top menu on that site.
    Thank you.
