Introducing Me

Hello there,

I'm not sure what this little ole blog is going to fall into the spectrum of niches that create the blog-o-sphere. But I am thinking it's going to be more of a lifestyle blog. Yeah, that's it, lifestyle. The broad description of a lifestyle blog is a daily representation of the bloggers day and interest. That sounds exactly like what I want out of this little part of the internet that I want to be my own. 

What topics will you find here? 

Well of course daily life. I am a mom of two girls, ages 11 and 16. I homeschool my youngest and if my oldest daughters father would let me I'd homeschool her as well. I am a housewife by choice and by my husband's good grace. We have been married nearly twelve years now and he has had the patience of a saint while dealing with my craziness. 

What else? 
For me, bipolarism is a lot like a mess of limbs and branches.
Hard to navigate and a good chance for nicks and cuts.

I'll probably talk a lot about my depression and my bipolarism. This is a newer journey in my life. I was misdiagnosed for many years as severely depressed. It wasn't until I had a break down on a family vacation that we realized there was more wrong with me than being depressed.  The last year or so has been me trying one medication after another and learning to handle my manic episodes in a healthy manner.

I'll also talk a lot about my passions like cooking and crocheting. I may even talk about my diet, the husband and I have jumped on the keto diet bandwagon and so far it's not been too terrible.

So why the title Acutely Felicia?

That's easy. I wanted something to remind to stay true to my voice and not get sidetracked by all the other bloggers out there that I admire. I've been around the block a time or two as a mom blogger and it's never really fit me the way I wanted too. I always feel like I have to mind my P's and Q's when in that realm of blogging. I've always admired the bloggers who tell it like it is in their life in raw format. It's about time I stop admiring and using my own voice to talk.
