Born in Norway, and British educated in Africa, and living in the USA. I am an ex drug user who still smokes but has by and large left intoxication behind me, with the exception of the medications I have to take due to sustained pot use and an LSD poisoning or two. The combined effects of this event and going through the mental health system left me wanting to withdraw from society, and brought me to a point where technology was my primary outlet with other people. I have finally started to come out of my shell and no longer see my disability before I see myself in my mind’s eye. My passions include Christianity and Computers, and the Zen of Everyday Living. I believe that life offers many avenues to success but perversely humans rarely understand how many successes they have. The key to living with hope is to appreciate everything you have and strive to improve oneself in God’s Eyes.
