But seriously…

I’m Vicky Poutas,  freelance writer and blogger, and I’m here to make your life seem easier and lots more interesting.

Take a load off. I’ll fill my blog with the sparkling entertainment of the life of a post-menopausal woman with a dog, a husband who is always working and leaving me home alone most of the time, and my struggle with mental illness and how to beat it to death with humor.

Vicky Poutas - Freelance Writer

Let’s talk. I’d love to hear from you in the comments. Even if you just need to vent or talk to someone who hears you and gets it.

You can contact me by email by simply clicking the button above (on mobile devices) and clicking the “Contact” link, filling out the form, and pressing “Send,” or click the “Contact” tab directly above and on the right on desktop/laptops, directly at vicky@vickypoutas.com, or talking to me at Twitter at @vickypoutas. I also have an Instagram account, @vickypoutas.

(Who am I kidding? I never check my emails on this thing. I do check vickypoutas@gmail.com occasionally, though. Email me there if you need to talk. Use the “contact” link to subscribe to my blog. Don’t worry, I don’t spam. That would take too much energy. I have to save that to brush my teeth in the morning. I do respond to comments, though, so comment away.)

Feel free to click that “Blog” button, too. That’s what this site is all about. You’ll feel so much better about your own lives when you read about mine. On laptops and desktops, links are at the top of this page. Easy peasy.

Make sure you click the “continue” button at the bottom of the blog excerpt you’re reading. The whole blog post is revealed in all its crazy glory behind that button. All it takes is for you to click, read, and have a good laugh. You’ll come away from the experience feeling much better about your own life in comparison.

I’ve been writing a long time and I’ve written and write about a lot of different stuff, but my blog is where I let myself be me. I rip the “Nancy Normal” mask off, and then I make just as much fun as I can of my assortment of fruit flavored mental illnesses.

I’ve been diagnosed with depression, anxiety, and Bi-Polar Two. At one point in my life, I was even given the mantle of Schizo-non affective and a personality mood disorder I’ve forgotten the name of, since I didn’t agree with it.

It starts with a B…no, not bitch, although I have heard that’s what type of person has it…oh – Borderline Personality disorder. Apparently, someone thought I was walking a thin line. Who knows? I take so much medication that I should just be diagnosed with numbness, since I feel numb now, and always. I do enjoy writing, though. Thus, the blog. I get to spill my guts on the page for fun and your entertainment.

I’m technologically impaired as well, so excuse the site for its many imperfections. I’m working on it, but right now it’s like we all are-perfectly imperfect.

This site is here solely for you to read and enjoy and to let you know somebody out there truly cares about you. I do. I care.

I’m also available for hire to do guest posting on the subject of your choosing. Hint: I know a lot about mental illness, and animals.

But, I can seriously write about anything from case studies to white papers, and I do some serious copywriting, too.
