If any should read this be aware that I am irreverent and nonsensical at times, I'm thinking that a previous life in the seedy dark underground of drugs might have something to do with that. I was a hardcore dopefiend living on the streets of America for a very long time. I won't go into detail about that kind of life unless asked and even then, I'll shed light on it as a very negative experience, save to say that through that, I have found a different way of life that to me, is nothing short of incredible. As of today I have over 18 years clean & sober and try to help others like me get and stay clean & sober. I am currently employed at a Detox Center and work with our Men and Women in the Armed Services who are having severe problems with alcohol and drugs. And while the hours are bad, at least the pay sucks... but the pay-off is priceless. In the very near future, I will have finished my current educational goals and be Certified with 48 States to practice counciling. And then on to an MA in Psychology.
I'm a Navy brat myself, and having caught my first felony before I was 18 they would not accept me in any branch of service, so I continued with my lifestyle of drugs, sex, and yes, rock and roll.
I don't judge anyone with any kind of drug history... in fact, I sometimes envy those who are predispositioned to be able to use socially, and/or drink like a normal person, my hats off to you. These are things I have never been able to do, and will never be able to do.
I am highly intelligent with an IQ of over 165, and still do some of the stupidest things. I am also an artist by nature, and highly creative. I love to read, write, and can't stand math, or to be totally honest, numbers baffle me. They make my head hurt. I have recently gotten into photography as well... so if there are any Fu's out there in my area who are wanting to get some profile pics done from a different perspective rather than the self-shots in the mirror, gimme a holla. No worries, I do know how to remain professional.
As to Fubar: I am still new at this, so I still have a lot to learn. I am undecided as to whether or not I will go full bore with all the blings and leveling ups and so on, that is not why I joined. As you will undoubtedly notice, all my friends here are female at this time. This will change over time as I get more comfortable with people here. I am not looking for anything in particular, just exploring, I'm a curious sort of person.
On that note, I'll stop there as I have a client coming in for an intake.
If you have any questions don't hesitate, my life and self are pretty open and I can be brutally honest at times, so be prepared for that.
