Living in the Pacific Northwest is a blessing. The beautiful landscapes and thriving communities make for a fine place to call home or just visit. I live in Bremerton, Washington which is a 1 hour ferry ride from Seattle. I am an adult with mental health challenges. I have a Madrona branch which I found at my friend Natasha's property in Seabeck, Washington. This branch has features resembling an androgynous person and makes for a nice walking stick. I need to get more exercise... I named this branch Maddy. Her full name is Madrona Maddy Madison. Over the years I have had some struggles with depression and anxiety. After finding Maddy I developed a meaningful relationship with God, the spirit world, family, friends, myself, and interestingly schizophrenia. I am currently a client at Kitsap Mental Health and will continue with keeping positive while managing my time and lifestyle. I love people and want to like everybody all the time but I've learned this to be impossible. Maddy is supportive and has an optimistic attitude which is wonderful.
