Buenos Dias my captive (see : unwilling) audience (see: victims) ! Allow me to introduce myself, your author/ cohost / captain in this nonsensical hilarious chronicle and/or inner workings of my mind. I am a child of the 80’s, and while a true lady never reveals her age, I was hatched somewhere between the release of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and the birth of Van Hagar. I grew up in a picturesque New England vacation destination where the weather is schizophrenic, the rocky ice cold surf separates the men from the boys, and I know how to use a rotary. Blinkah’s (see: motor vehicle directional) and pronunciation of ‘R’ optional.

I am a medical enigma of sorts. I was born with two birth defects that should’ve claimed victory had it not been for my parent’s unparalleled determination and persuasion skills (see: slamming of fists on the desk and throwing chairs). I had my first (of many) surgeries at 18 months, and spent the remainder of my childhood being the “sick kid”. I skated by most of my student career on minimal attendance and no gym class with my doctor’s note. I was diagnosed with endometriosis at 17 years old, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome almost ten years later, and am now facing a hysterectomy after my most recent diagnosis of adenomyosis.

I am a full time working wife and mom with a super fabulous job helping people and coworkers that are like extended family, putting the ‘fun’ in dysfunction is what keeps this ship sailing. I created this blog as an outlet to vent when life inevitably shows its sense of humor at my expense. Just kidding, I think I’m hilarious, but I actually do have really bad luck, so it all works out.

Life is one weird @$$ journey, maybe in my over sharing of way too personal stuff you never wanted to know about me it may help you along the way. On a side note , if you’re wondering about my pen name ‘Birdie’ is a nickname I acquired as a kid, I’ve never really felt like a ‘Robin’, I found it a rather odd choice for it being the early – ish eighties in a sea of Jennifer’s , Nicole’s, Sarah’s and Amanda’s . Apparently my parents had a fondness for the Kennedy administration since that was the last time my name was popular. Way to go.
