Hello, I am Tay!
Nice to meet you! Here are some basics about me. I am a 40-something-year-old student, a native southern Californian living with mental health concerns. Outside of school, cooking, and blogging, I love all things “geeky,” such as anime, computer games, comic books, fantasy, and sci-fi movies. On the flip side, I also enjoy the beach, art, music, camping, and traveling. Indeed, I have no biological children. In April of 2018, I moved to Dayton, Ohio. I had a wonderful older emotional support cat named Trinity that passed in January 2021.
Since everyone in this area always asks, the primary reason I left CA was to live a better life with a better cost of living. Furthermore, I want to bring Simply Taysty Catering and Events to life.
Now, let’s get a little deeper. Since I was a child, I have had mental health issues due to biology and traumatic events. At first, my diagnosis is Bipolar Disorder II and PTSD. It took several years of ups and downs, broken relationships, and internal discovery to realized something was not right. For several years I was in and out of therapy, trying different medications and coping skills. It was only recently, I have found a combination that worked for me. Nonetheless, I still struggle; however, I have armed myself with the tools and support to help overcome setbacks.
