Hiya o/ My name is Zai! Many people have asked how to pronounce my username so I'll toss the pronunciation here: "zay-veenx".
I spent most of my life in Oklahoma and Arkansas, USA. The peaceful, rural forests of Oklahoma were a place I called home until I ended up in Arkansas around the age of 14. To keep things brief: I had a good life to start, experienced several years of abuse, and then proceeded to develop frustratingly bad anxiety. This anxiety - along with other factors - trapped me in a small, dark, and very lonely world.
During 2015, I experienced the beginnings of a series of lifechanging events that ultimately led me to where I now reside: in Australia with my husband, the love of my life. Now, I am rising from the ashes of my past in an attempt to be more than I was. I am now surrounded by positive people in my life and feel that I can finally move forward.
In late 2020, I was finally medically diagnosed with Social Anxiety Disorder and General Anxiety Disorder. I am now on medication, which has made life a tad bit easier!
