Jade is a retired specialty performance artist, storyteller, and internet junkie. She writes an online journal chronicling her recovery from post-traumatic stress disorder, a nasty self-harm addiction, and her struggle with fibromyalgia. She hopes that what she learns along the way will be of benefit to others too. She is passionate about philosophy, biology, cynical metaphysics, psychology, and a couple other 'ologies' she probably can't remember due to living in fibro-fog. She likes fire but has never burned anything down.
