Newest Deviations

~I am a "varied artist." I make stamps, photo-manipulations, take photos, write poetry, do my makeup, write short stories, (though I have only one posted)...
~My deviations vary in nature from dark subjects to happier things like animal photos and poems about hope.
~Be warned a lot of my work has mature content!
~Take a peek at my gallery! My "Newest Deviations" are only a sliver of what I have created.


Random Favourites

I love to favorite dark and Gothic things, but things of lighter nature are among my interest as well.


Hello, darlings :blackrose:

I have been on hiatus for a year now trying to get my life sorted out:
I was diagnosed with Schizoaffective Disorder which is a disorder where I have symptoms of BOTH Bipolat Disorder and Schizophrenia.
I have been struggling with this disorder on and off, psychosis, paranoia, and constant mood swings.
It doesn't help that I suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress disorder resulting from witnessing my father pass away.
And I have been struggling with smoking and drinking.  NOT fun, let me tell you that...

In other news, on December 6th, 2014, I became engaged to the love of my life. <3

Well, I'll be on here to appreciate art and submit some work.

I love you all so much and thank you for the support over the years!!

Happy Birthday. Hope you feel better. 
HoshisamaValmor Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2014

thanks the fav

I was never diagnosed with BPD but I had a lot of its symptoms. I've been a lot better for the last couple of years, but remembering the hard days, those were really bad. Anxiety problems still remain, but again, not as bad as before. I wish you the best.

And you have a great music taste :)
