Welcome to PerKreations,
I’m so glad you decided to stop by. I’m Kim Perkins and this my website. I am an author, artist, writer, fanatical reader, and dictionary collecter with a dark sense of humour, a lover of the word, fuck, and shaken margaritas.
I also have mental illnesses; I suffer from anxiety, depression, social phobias, self-harm urges and panic attacks. I have been hospitalized twice for being suicidal. Combined with those issues I also suffer from severe chronic pain. I’m also grieving the Loss of my maternal Grandmother 1 year ago and my own Mother 4 and a half years ago.
I started my blog 2 years ago because I felt so alone with my struggles. I thought it might be a good way to connect with others and I could perhaps draw attention to mental illness and help break down stigmas by offering first-hand accounts of what it’s like to live with these issues.
I had no idea it would be so cathartic and fun to write this and how many people I would hear from who could relate or were happy to better understand what might be going on with someone experiencing anxiety, for example.
I also occasionally write rants or opinion pieces about feminism, humour, empathy, love, and whatever else rattles from my mind and onto the page.
If you have questions or suggestions for me please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can leave a note in the comment section.
