So a few people have asked me in personal messages how and why I disappeared from the BT community for 3 years after having been such a huge part of it since 2005. The simple answer: drugs. I was dealt a tough hand in late 2013 with an autoimmune disorder of the brain which caused my immune system to attack my eyes. I had large black spots in front of me at all times, making it almost impossible to work out. I wasn't able to drive. Being the Type A person that I am, I looked for some other way of keeping myself busy. I started going out with friends who were not athletic so I wouldn't be reminded of the fact I couldn't work out. Thus, I started a short but destructive relationship with methamphetamine. I was high for almost a month. My relationship ended, I moved out of Florida to DC where I was homeless for two months. Upon realizing I was gonna die if I didn't do something, I picked myself up and moved to Provincetown, MA and got two jobs and stayed with a good friend until I could get an apartment. Soon after, I met met Kevin and we just clicked so suddenly and completely that I up and moved in with him in Chelmsford, MA a week after we met. Two years later we are planning our wedding in Fairfield County, Connecticut at his sister's house. We are both very athletic and we both love cars and sports so we are perfectly matched. Kevin's name on here is DivergentKev. I changed my name to DivergentQ because Kevin and I are just that...divergent. We are so alike in so many ways and we both have interests in so many things that you just can't classify us. He is 60 and I am 42, yet we think exactly alike. We have spent every night together in the last 21 months...no lie. Its amazing that we never get tired of being around each other. That's why I know this is the beginning of the rest of my life. Kevin will be doing his first Tri in July, and my return to the sport will be on that day as well. Q is back and better than ever!
