The Short Version:
Mother Hen is Jodi Edwards Wright, a former moderator of a Depression forum, former teacher, mother, and all around eccentric writer/poet.
The Long Version:
Welcome to my world!
I am a wife, mother, writer, poet, former teacher, unconventional Christian, and now, a typing chicken. For a number of years I was a team leader and co-moderator of the Dealing with Depression team at SparkPeople.com. I was Senior Moderator of the DwD team for two years, during which time the group grew from a few thousand to over 500,00 members.
I have fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, clinical depression, and a host of other quirks and impediments, not the least of which is an almost terminal case of honesty. I have lived through divorce, abuse, single motherhood, bankruptcy, poverty, the chronic illness and eventual death of a child, the loss of my career, and a few other things not worth mentioning at the moment. Humor and faith were two anchors that helped me survive the storm.
I am now married to the most wonderful man in the world (my sympathies to all the other women out there — he’s taken), and am owned by two cats, Cosmo and Zinnia.
Hope you enjoy the ride!
