About Me


So a little about me and my daily struggles:

My name is Ona and I am a 41 (nearly 42) year old wife and mother. I was born in San Diego, CA and the child of a Military father. I lived in Northern California until 7 1/2 years ago when the recession had us looking (my husband not me) for work. We ended up in Pennsylvania. My husband and I are both only children, and we have 4 children. We have a 21 year old girl, 13 year old boy, 12 year old girl and 5 year old boy. I am a stay at home mom due to a visually disability. I have con/rod distrophy which is similiar to macular degeneration. I lost more and more vision as I got into my late 20’s and early 30’s, I finally had to quit working (made me sad). I was a C.N.A. for 15 years and I loved my job. I also suffer with arthritis of my knees, back (due to 2 surgeries), wrist (due to shattering it at 18) and many other places. I suffer with chronic pain, depression and axiety. Work used to allow me an outlet for working through my depression. I am a very social person, but since I don’t get out of my house much, I struggle. Doing ordinary household chores can be very difficult for me to work through. I used to write a lot, short stories, poetry and nonsense, but it was also an outlet. Since I have found myself in the rut of wifedom and motherhood I have let my desires slip away. I am eternally grateful for That’s Inappropriate and Hot Mess Express for helping me to realize that I do not have to be alone, that I do not have to sit in the rut, that I can be more than what I have become and that I deserves all of this, as well. It brings a spark to my day, but the struggles are still real, I am doing my best to work through them. Thank you for reading my story… and thank you to all my new found Hot Mess connections.
