I am not a licensed mental health clinician, but I do hold a master’s degree in social work from the University of Maryland. I think my education, coupled with the fact that I have a troubled mind, entitles me to refer to myself as an amateur shrink. An armchair quarterback, if you will. Life is hard, man. Trust me, I know all about hardships. I will share anecdotes about my troubles throughout this blog should I feel doing so is relevant. After all, it is precisely because I’ve struggled so much throughout my adult life that I want to help alleviate others’ pain, albeit with a touch of sarcasm and humor. So, if you want to get to know me, then I encourage you to read this blog. It will be updated once or twice (maybe even three times!) a week, depending on how much time I have.
