My brain is experiencing technical difficulties please stand by…
I am, to the world, an ordinary 26 year old female, working fulltime and paying a mortgage. Goofing around and trying to have a good time. But on the inside I’m struggling like hell.
I have started this blog to help open up about my mental and my physical health and the impact this has on each day of my life! I would like to hopefully reach out to other people suffering with similar issues and help you realise you’re not alone.
I am living with a diagnoses of Borderline Personality Disorder. Chances are you’re looking at my blog because you know what that is but if not check out ‘Mind‘ …
I also battle Body Dysmorphia Disorder and when I say battle I mean I hide in the corner whilst the voices in my head tell me I am fat. I am ugly. I am not good enough. But… I’m suiting up and I’m getting ready to fight.
Along with many other people with BPD I have had my fair share of trauma in my life. Traumatic events that have unfortunately and sometimes fortunately shaped the person I am. Whilst I am broken I am also strong. Whilst I am hurt I am also winning. Whilst I’m dying inside, I’m also surviving.
Along with a couple of other MH diagnoses including PTSD, and Depression. I also have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, M.E, Fibromyalgia, Bilateral Hip Dysplasia and Acetabular Retroversion.
I’d love for you to join me on this journey. It won’t be easy. It will be bloody hard. It may even be fun. I can promise it will be a bumpy ride of craziness, silliness and few profanities here and there but it will be real. It will be worth it. And it will be me.
So yeah… Life is pretty freaking tough but I am trying to get through it one shitty day at a time with a little help from my family, friends and my loony dog!
So click ‘follow’ and let’s do this!!
On the surface I am swimming gracefully, but under water I am paddling like crazy to stay afloat!
