Meet the author

Hi, I am Megan Griffith, Millennial, mom, and mental health advocate. Thank you so much for checking out my blog! I started this blog in 2018 as a way to share my thoughts on what it’s like to be a dysfunctional 20-something.

As someone who lives with depression, generalized anxiety disorder, and a shame-based personality born of little “t” childhood trauma (not to mention living in a time of intense political upheaval), I am pretty dysfunctional. I found myself struggling to function, and I wanted a space to air all of my dysfunctions. By doing so, I hoped to strip them of their power over me and let other dysfunctional 20-somethings know they weren’t alone. I’m happy to announce that this blog has been a moderate success on both counts.

I am learning to function in an incredibly dysfunctional world, and I want to help others do the same. Sometimes that looks like meaningful posts investigating my harmful coping mechanisms, and other times that looks like silly posts on how I dye my hair. Insight is important, but so is fun. I’m here to bring both. I hope you enjoy.

10 fun/useless facts about me:

  1. I’m the oldest of 4 kids (this might seem like one of the useless facts, but every stereotype you’ve ever read about oldest kids 100% applies to me, so it’s actually very informational)
  2. Two years ago I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Speech Pathology and immediately abandoned it to get my Master’s in Creative Writing
  3. I’m obsessed with ice cream, especially Graeter’s (an Ohio specialty)
  4. My husband and I used to live with his parents, but we just bought a house!
  5. I’ve been in therapy for over 5 years now, and I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone
  6. I am a Hufflepuff and if you have anything nasty to say about that I will bake you cookies until you either change your mind or choke 🙂
  7. I’m also a Gemini…yeah, sorry about that one, I get it
  8. I’m a full-time freelance writer, and I couldn’t be more grateful and amazed that I get to live this life that I used to dream about as a kid
  9. I sometimes eat blocks of cheese. Like, I just bite into them until they’re gone.
  10. I’m really happy you’re here reading my blog. Seriously, thank you for supporting people like me, we couldn’t do what we do without you
