Bio: David Curtis

Hi, I’m David and I’m a part time contributor to the Zebra Pit. I’m married to Michelle and a co-parent to one grown son, two cats and twelve fish ūüėĀ. I battle chronic back pain due to a congenital disorder called spondylolisthesis. I also have osteoarthritis and I am most likely an undiagnosed spoonie; I have many symptoms and even more questions.

I am also Michelle’s caretaker when her symptoms become overwhelming and work full-time as a retail department manager. It’s not often I write for the Zebra Pit. I am usually behind-the-scenes, helping Michelle with editing, revisions and other tasks as time allows.

In my spare time, my hobbies include reading, exploring history, watching football, sci-fi, fantasy or comic book shows and film, along with fighting for truth, justice, and the human condition. I also drink (coffee) and know things.
