Hi, my name is Kristin. Welcome to INFJ.D.!
The site name is a play on my Myers Briggs personality type (INFJ) and my profession (lawyer by training).
INFJ.D. is all about living with mood and anxiety disorders and being a sensitive introvert (HSP, INFJ) in a loud world. I blog about what we can glean from (1) book learning and research (the brains), (2) lifting heavy ‘ish and putting it down (the brawn) and (3) stretching ourselves emotionally and mentally (the beauty of being) and how all of these things can help us to survive and thrive.
I have struggled with mood and anxiety disorders for over a decade and I know what it’s like to try to make life, relationships and careers work while shrouded in a black cloud. I know what it’s like when you just. can’t. even.
I’m a Bermuda Onion who came of age in the South Bronx (I’m still Krissy from the Block). Now I live in Connecticut where I’m a 4th year associate in a major regional law firm. I’ve learned the hard way that me + biglaw = a hot mess. Just ask my partner, F.L. — poor guy. So now I’m transitioning.
I started INFJ.D. to create a helpful and hopeful space to share with others who battle depression and anxiety on a daily basis, whether they’re winning or losing.
I am on a journey, as we all are, to find my place in the world.
Here’s to honoring your truth.
I am not a certified personal trainer, nutritionist or mental health professional.
Any law I discuss on this blog should not be considered legal advice or counsel. No attorney-client relationship has been formed or entered into. These are just my thoughts on the world.
