Hey, thanks for stopping by! I know you’re busy, but I just wanted to chat real quick and let you know what you’re getting into before you dive into my other stuff. You know, have a little DTR.
Well, first of all, my name is Haddi Trebisovsky, and it’s honestly not as hard as it looks. Haddi rhymes with Patty and if you break down the last name by syllable – you got it (though it’s not -sky like the blue sky, it’s -sky like downhill ski). While we’re just getting acquainted, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I suppose that’s why you’re here, after all!
I started out in the education field and moved on to behavioral therapy before becoming a mama for the first time nearly four years ago. Shortly after she was born, I worked at home for a dietitian until I was able to “retire” and become a stay-at-home-mom full-time.
Being a SAHM has been a lifelong dream of mine, and being able to make it work has been great for all of us. However, about a year ago, a friend asked me what was new in my life and I honestly couldn’t tell him anything other than what was happening in my husband’s or children’s lives and I realized: I needed a hobby.
That’s what brings us here. I’ve always loved writing. LOVED it. But I never really knew what to do with that. I decided to start writing a book, which ended up being YA speculative fiction, and it also ended up spurring on my love of writing even more! There are things that fiction can’t quite touch on in the same way a blog post can, and I found I had more to say than I realized.
I mostly like blogging about overcoming and freedom. I’ve been diagnosed with depression and/or anxiety by four different medical professionals over the course of my lifetime. Though never officially diagnosed or treated, I had anorexia for seven years. For over a decade, my normal coping mechanism for stress or low-self esteem was to visualize my suicide, and I hated every ounce of my being. None of those things are true about me anymore, and I want that to be true for everyone who’s dealing with these or other issues.
So if you also like pondering the ways life has brought you to where you are today, hang around, grab a coffee, get comfortable. I write a post once a week, but sometimes those posts need a part 2 or 3, so you’ll get a bonus every once in awhile. I’d love for you to join me in processing how everything I’ve gone through has led me to today, and how achieving my goals in spite of my past, maybe even because of it, has been possible. I believe it’s possible for you too!
