Welcome to Gray’s Cozy Nook and Emporium!
My name is Gray and welcome to the Cozy Nook and Emporium, where I discuss everything and anything that I feel like chatting about. If you’re looking for a page with a consistent theme of some sort, you’ve wander in the wrong Wonderland, Alice! For the brave who wish to come on this adventure, on the left side of the door are the zombie lasers, hard hats, bullet proof vests, and sarcastic puns. You’ll need them to survive the emporium at night, because some paranormal events and Yaoi seem to run out wildly from time to time.
A little bit about myself about two years ago, I suffered a very bad panic attack which caused a downward spiral for me. Yep, I’m going hard and heavy with this introduction, but I promise it’ll lead up to why I created this blog. You see, I have been working as a nurse for almost about seven years now, while it is good money, this is just a job but not my passion.
Back to the point though, I started having severe anxiety attacks after becoming licensed, it suddenly came to a point where I wouldn’t even have the energy to move. My attacks would leave me breathless and unable to roll out of bed, it would feel as if someone decided to place the Empire State Building on top of my chest.
It wasn’t until I forced myself to take time off and away from nursing that I started to feel the passion for things I enjoyed again. Writing, reading, gaming, learning a new language; I found an outlet to vent my anxieties and frustrations. In turn, I was helping to ease the strength of the attacks and the depression that would cozy up next to me after all the panic had caused.
I started to realized that the strength and resilience that I had locked inside for so long, had awakened because I had returned to the things I loved doing. I had found a way to combat my anxieties.
So reader… I am glad you’re here, and I’m glad you woke up today and felt the sun on your skin. You’re alive and winning. I hope you can laugh, rage, or possibly get confused with my antics on this page as I’m pretty sure I will go on a tangent from time to time, or I might make a something explode…
