I am human (homo sapiens sapiens), a native of the planet Earth. I am also an Animal, a Mammal, and a Primate: as such I am warm-blooded, and personally semi-nocturnal. I’m roughly six feet tall, brown-eyed, and have a relatively low melanin content in my skin. I currently live on the continent of North America and am also a native thereof. I was born in the last third of the Twentieth Century of the Common Era ( C.E., aka: A.D.). Incidentally, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease in 1986, and with Bipolar Disorder in 2004. I am currently disabled and live on Social Security and Food Stamps ( a grand total of $874/month). I rely on Medicaid for all of my health care needs. This blog is mostly about living with Crohn’s Disease and Bipolar Disorder, both complicated by poverty.
