I added a user icon. I chose the name of this blog because a despised creature named after its primary method of complaining seemed appropriate to the theme. But in reality, I think hissing cockroaches are pretty cool animals--so there's some secret hope for redemption there, I guess.

It occurs to me now that it might have been more appropriate to pick an animal that is outwardly acceptable but has little-known awful behaviors. Being despised by most but secretly pretty cool, like a cockroach, seems preferable to being outwardly tolerable but secretly abhorrent, which seems closer to my current situation. I guess even in this blog devoted to how shitty I am, I managed to sneak in some undeserved self-regard.

When I was a kid, my fantasy self was often a big toothy monster that scared everyone away except for the occasional brave soul willing to try to befriend it. Maybe that's what I should aspire to.

So this here is my blog that I have set up for Mental Health purposes. It will be self-indulgent and self-pitying and I will use it to give myself way too much credit for overcoming my bullshit fears, so you probably shouldn't read it. But the fact that someone out there could theoretically be masochistic enough to read it gives me more motivation to post, which is why I'm putting it on this public forum.

My brain thinks I'm the worst person in the world and you probably should too.
