about me

 

Hello,

A little bit about me. I am a 32-year-old girl from New Zealand. Sometimes I have brown hair unless it is between dyes, I have poo brown eyes, crooked teeth, and a cheesy smile.

I tend to see the world a different way to most people and am often described as quirky, unique or weird. That’s ok though, everyone is weird, they just show it in varying degrees. Plus who wants to be the same as everybody else? If we were all the same. the world would be a very dull place. The world needs a bit of fun and a bit of unique in it. We are only here for a short while so we may as well have some fun along the way.

Writing, reading, cross stitch knitting, and sewing are all things I enjoy. But I also enjoy being outdoors, walking, exploring, camping and finding adventures. I am a creature of habit but I also get bored if I do the same thing every day. I like spontaneity but I also enjoy routine. A complete contrast of characters but I am a girl and we are difficult creatures to decipher.

 

My Story

I have suffered from mental illnesses since my early teens. I have had bouts of depression, anxiety and suspected bipolar. I have not always handled these very well but over the years I have learned what works for me personally. Mental illness runs in my family and I know many people who have been covered by the black cloud.

Through talking to people, reading, writing, therapy and experimentation I have come to learn more about these illnesses.

 

Why blog?

Helping people is something that I have always enjoyed doing. I am hopeful that we can learn some tips and tricks to creating a positive lifestyle together. It does take a little bit of elbow grease, and by no means am I ‘cured’ so we will be working alongside each other.

 

So drop me a line, if you want to share your story I would love to read it

Jem
