First things first! I am not a professional blogger, reporter or writer, nor do I pretend to or think that I will ever be. I also have to add, that I am not a doctor, psychologist, psychiatrist, role model, inspirational person or a motivational speaker. I’m just another speck of dust, in our humongous universe, or better yet, I’m just another human being on our planet, that has a life that is complicated by his own mental demons on a daily basis.
On a personal note! My name is Tony “Tone” Vega and I’m just a 48-year-old Dominican born, New Yorker, the ninth of nine children and the only son. A loner who loves weekend beer binge drinking, but who is also trying to stay sober for as long as possible. I’m also a three times college dropout, husband to the most beautiful, inspirational, supportive and understanding women in whole wide universe. Dad to two of the most intelligent adult kids in the galaxy and owner of the craziest, yet most fun and loving dog in the whole wide world….. Nino. I have been working full-time as a customer service representative for the last twelve years and I have to say, that I am grateful to my employer and till this day, I get along with 99.99% of my co-workers.
On the mental side of things. I have been diagnosed as suffering from Bipolar II disorder, Purely Obsessional OCD and Social Anxiety Disorder by my incredible shrink Dr. C. At this moment my “crazy meds” are Ambien, Buspirone, Prozac and Risperidone.
With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!
