Despite Dysfunction is operated by me, Kristen.  I will forever be a Rhode Islander, as this is where I was born and raised.  I currently work as a nurse in San Diego and enjoy writing, surfing, rock climbing, and embracing God’s will in my life.  I am a follower of Christ and dedicated my life to Him on August 14, 2016.  It is my hope that this blog serves God in a way that I can be a comfort and a resource to others who have suffered from alcoholism or have lived in a family in which alcoholism was/is still present.
