Children of Lightning

A traumagenic system called Lyn

Hi! I'm Tyra.

I'm the host of the system, and also the core. I was born in summer of year 2000, and it was a pretty and sunny day. While my mother was in the hospital, the sky darkened, and a thunder storm began. Right in the moment I was born, lightning struck the hospital. See where I got this site's title from? It's a pretty metal story, if you ask me. Another thing that's pretty metal is that I'm named after the norse god of war Týr.

I like to draw, listen to music, talk to people online, and play video games. I also love to read about different topics I find interesting, such as psychology and the different types of disorders. I've got a lot on my plate in my day to day life. I'm mentally ill and neurodivergent with multiple comorbities, as well as physically disabled. "Neurodivergent" means that I'm not neurologically typical (also known as "neurotypical"). People who have neurodevelopmental disorders often refer to themselves as neurodivergent. I have a pretty purple cane with nice patterned details on it, and it makes my life way easier.

While things aren't easy, I'm in a pretty good mood most of the time. I have a friend who insists my souls is bubblegum pink, and the look of this site may or may not confirm that. Sadly my actual wardrobe in real life consists mostly of black clothes, and I can't stand clothing stores and don't like buying clothes online, so that probably won't change in a while. I stim a lot; when I get excited I flap my hands up and down really fast, and when I'm frustrated I bounce my arms to my sides like a penguin. I'll go from a hyperactive talking machine to a napping sloth in the span of 10 seconds, and I'm known in my family to have - on multiple occasions - fallen asleep in the middle of a sentence.

My alters, that you can learn more about if you want to, have gotten me through many very difficult and traumatic situations. Sometimes I don't hear from them for weeks, other times they're present around the clock. It all depends on how life is treating us, but I wouldn't trade them away for anything. They're my brain tenants, my little pink goo family, my supporters. I hope to make the concept of me having them less scary by making (hopefully up to date) information about them readily available to those who know me.

I hope you have a great day 💜
