100 Word Challenge: Grouch



by Teresa (Tessa) Smeigh

Copyright October 2016 – 100 words

I am a grouch. I hate the term, but it fits my mentality due to my mental health disorders. I have bipolar disorder for one and also borderline personality disorder. They affect my moods and most of the time I want to be left alone. I don’t want to be grouchy, but I have no control over it. It is, what it is.

My family and few friends know that I am grouchy most of the time. I can’t find a medicine that will help my moods change to happiness and perkiness. Thankfully my family and friends love me anyway.

-Advocate For Mental And Invisible Illnesses

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.
