I realise through my blogs I have taken everyone through my mental illness with me but yet haven’t let any of you into my life .
There is more to me than just illness .
Where do I start ?
I’m 27 years young and I live in a small town in South West Wales, UK.
My parents are happily married with over 40 years together .
I have 2 older brothers .
I have had 2 labradors over the past 20 years . Tess was my first , a golden lab. And Ellie my second, a black lab.
I have had 2 rabbits, Sooty and Flopsey.
A hamster , Yoda (Yoda was a girl haha)
And a budgie named Ben .
I adore animals !!
I used to work , from the age of 16 until I was 22 .
I studied Performing Arts for a year.
Then went on to study Theatre Lighting for 3 years .
I also went to University and studied Theatre Design & Production but I didn’t finish my first year . (Illness)
Films are a passion of mine .
My hobbies are :
📒 Writing books
✏ Art – Sketching & Painting
🎮 Gaming – Pc , PS4 , Xbox & Nintendo
🎀 Collect models / figures
🃏 Collect Pokémon cards
As I don’t work , I stay at home a lot . I very very rarely leave the house . So I have a lot of hobbies , along side blogging , to keep me entertained .
Although, I don’t get to do these daily .
I have 2 wonderful Nieces who I love spending time with, and my little cousin who lives with them .
I basically live a very simple life .
I have a wonderful Fiancé who has supported me for over 6 years and honestly , I don’t know where I would be without him .
That’s basically me .
I don’t talk a lot about myself because I’m not that interesting haha .
But I thought I would give you a little info about me 🙂
I am more than my illnesses and I just wanted to point that out .
My whole point to blogging is to help end the stigma against Mental health . To do this people also need to know there are 2 sides to everyone. The person & the illness .
We don’t choose this life, Mental health is not a choice .
I wish it was .
