Hi I'm Jocelyn

I grew up in the Canada, BC. I struggle with depression. Nonetheless, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

To be blunt, I do not have an amazing success story to share. I am unemployed, unmarried, and not at all independent. I live with family, relying on their ongoing support as I struggle to get through each and every day.. On my good days, I spend my time drawing, writing, learning new things, designing game ideas, world building, organizing data as a hobby, role-playing (free form and tabletop), playing video games, and listening to other people and their problems. On my bad days, I barely leave my room and abandon all pretense of taking care of myself. However, I have aspirations of being an author, as well as learning the art of reflexology. I would like nothing better than to be able to aid the process of healing in others, and in doing so, help my own emotional healing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family. I grew up with the values, and though they were often a bit lofty for me, they kept me from making irreparable mistakes during the worst times of my depression. For that I am thankful. Being Mormon has formed an integral part of my identity, and my belief in God has seen me through during my darkest times.

How I live my faith

In all reality, I have been inactive for some time, feeling often too depressed or anxious to attend regular church meetings. However, with the prompting of some missionaries, I have decided to grit my teeth and return. It won't be easy. Nonetheless, besides attending church, I have always believed strongly in my faith, and did my best to at the very least be worthy of myself. And given some time, I hope to be able to add more to this section.
