I saw there were a number of other introduction posts in this area so I hope I am correct about placing this here.
I'm Jenni. I don't really know what to say here. I started pagan. I mean I knew I wasn't christian but I didn't know what I was for a long time. I knew I was different. I'm from Mississippi and I am not like the people around me at all. I was kind of camped out in front of a bookshelf at a bookstore on day. I was reading trying to find something- then I found a copy of Satanic Bible way back in between the two shelves. I saw the first few pages and quickly paid for it and left. I felt like I had gotten a hold of something I wasn't supposed to have. But I read it and it was just so cathartic. I felt like I had finally found out what I was. I had a name. I had people like me to look to. I haven't looked back since. I came from a home where my mom was a single mom and worked two jobs and with what I learned from LaVey I have gone to school, built a family, a business, and a life. I'm not continuing the welfare cycle that people get so stuck in here. So much of what I am I would not have done had I not found that small book that day, had I not found LaVey. It's hard dealing with these stupid sheeple and being a Satanist brings some much needed humor to the situation.
Anyway, so I'm a mom. I homeschool my children, now teenagers so they do much of it themselves. I had to, I needed them to learn evolution and real science. I love my dogs. I live and breathe for my dogs. I rescue dogs, I take care of the neighborhood dogs here, I advocate for various animal causes.
I guess I'm mainly here for occasional moral support and camaraderie. I have been a CoS member for years and never really reached out. But I occasionally find myself overwhelmed by things and I need to find that center. "Psychic vampires" are a plenty! I think of this as a dark, soothing liar I can come and be amongst my own kind.
Thank you for allowing me to be here.
