I saw a post on facebook today that said that The Blackdog tribe was looking for people to write a guest blog for their site. Now me being me thought ‘Why not’ and sent them an email saying I was interested. They’ve asked me about myself and what I would be happy to write about…poor woman probably didn’t know what she was in for when she asked me that!
“Ohhh it’s like a job interview! hmmmm well I’m 28 from Yorkshire. I work as a support worker for adults with learning difficulties part time and love it (most of the time!). I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety since I was a child and after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 4 years ago it all came to a head and I finally went to ask for help when my MS nurse pushed me in the GP’s direction. I was diagnosed with an adjustment disorder but after some time in a psych ward they also said I showed borderline personality traits though they didn’t explain it was a disorder all by itself and I’m now being referred back to psych to find out what on earth I can do about it lol. I write about a lot of different things from how I cope with day to day life, work etc to past experiences and how I got through them though that’s mostly to try and organise those memories in my own head when they take over. I’m at the point now where I don’t want to have to hide my problems from people and my blog is a way of trying to make sure I can talk about it.
