The Fantabulous Unicorn.
Hi, I'm Mirazh. I like zombie survival video games, long conversations about European pre-Christian deities, and long walks on the beach... oh wait.
Let's try this again! I came to CB in the second half of 2011; my old life burned down to the ground at the very end of 2011 and I lived in the ashes of its remains for the first few months of 2012. CB was instrumental in helping me to hold it together during that time, during my diagnosis, and during my medication trials that were fortunately short yet no less frustrating. I was asked to join the moderation team in the second half of 2012 and accepted gladly; serving the community that has given me so much is an honour. I believe strongly in paying it forward.
I consider myself both genderqueer and trans*; my gender identity is neither as a man or a woman, and I am pursuing medical transitioning. Some people can find this a bit confusing. I am glad to answer polite and well-intentioned questions, though you may find it helpful to think of me as something like a trans guy who is a flaming drag queen (or maybe that makes it worse, oh well.) If you're trans* and/or genderqueer and/or gender-weird/odd/different/etc. in any way, I am especially glad to help you with links to information, resources, support forums, and more -- I also love to talk about the subject in general. Just don't call me brave. **Please don't take this as an offer for one-on-one PM support; resources and a bit of conversation are fine, direct support is best left to the whole of the community.**
If you haven't figured it out yet, I'm one of the GLBTQAI/etc. contacts here on CB. I'm queer, kinky, polyamorous, and yes I already mentioned that I am trans*/genderqueer. These are but some of the viewpoints I bring to CB. Being crazy and being queer, kinky, poly, or trans* can carry its own set of unique challenges and frustrations in the world. Please know that you are not alone.
Additionally I am a neo-Pagan, currently engaged in religious studies with a lineage-based eclectic Wiccan tradition. If you're crazy and Pagan, you're not alone on CB either. May the Gods and Goddesses give you bright blessings.
You'll usually find me around the following boards: bipolar, self injury, substance abuse, panic/anxiety, OCD, social phobia, ADHD, ASDs, ACs/MSs, cocktails, benzos, stimulants, what the hell is that, therapy, family feud, relationships, spirituality, GLBT(QIA/etc.), whatever, and good stuff. I'm also known to lurk in chat.
Anyone curious about my diagnoses, medications, personal interests, etc. can check out my profile.
