This is my day to day Twitter feed, I have a separate one for Weight Loss Surgery stuff @Its_still_TRina
Hi I am T’Rina…
I am a woman in my 40's (born 12-7-68) from Boise Idaho. I am an artist, a writer, a crafter, a liberal, a giver, a decent person, I am an Eclectic, a mix of Goth, bohemian, geeky nerd artist.
I am married to and madly in love with a man 16 years my junior (shhhh dont tell him he thinks I am 25...JK) I try to live my life to the fullest, I love to spend time talking to a wide variety of people and hanging out with my friends doing all sorts of things, watching movies, having coffee or going out to clubs though I dont drink for health reasons.
I enjoy people who have a dark sense of humor and weird outlook on life yet manage to be positive overall, I despise having other people's unwanted drama dumped on my lap because for some reason people feel the need to drag me into their drama. I am always willing to listen to a friend who needs me but I find many other people are just looking for an audience.
I am a geek/nerd and I enjoy webcomics, role playing games (World of Darkness games, Vampire, Changeling and Werewolf) and I enjoy odd little gadgets.
Everything in my life is in flux, I am changing all the time right now, I had Duodenal Switch Weight Loss Surgery on April 24th 2010 to help with the arthritis that has caused me trouble for years now. I am trying to redefine myself and I am not sure who I will be in the coming years. I have lost over 240 pounds before and after surgery which is changing a lot about my body and how I deal with the world. I also have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and I am finally realizing that many of the things I have spent years hating myself for thinking they were due to being fat and lazy is related to much maligned and little understood illness that I have had for going on 30 years. I go in and out of remission with this illness and have good times and bad.
