( to those who want to skip this bit – just know like you I am awesome too! Ha ha! )
Salut, flowers and (in my gruffest, manly voice) Trees!
Welcome to the world of a stereotyped-not typical Bipolar, Chronic Anorexic (with a normal BMI) with elements of an emotional unstable personality disorder
No hiding from my experiences. Ha ha!
Yup, but I like to keep things optimistic.
I’ve been a militant Anorexic with multiple stays in hospitals.
What’s that I hear you say?
“that is so gross – I hate skinny bitches it makes me want to vomit”
I have a colorful label of Bipolar but I take my meds by each prescription these days.
I have never been governed by boundaries. I’ve been in toxic relationships that crushed the small self-esteem I had.
My self-esteem is a lot better now, thanks for asking 😀.
I have a post graduate degree diploma in the Arts and the Humanities. I studied ‘Myth in the Greek and Roman worlds’ because I thought it would be interesting, (I had never ever studied Mythology before) and then focused my other last module on ‘Advanced creative writing’.
I have a foundation degree in ‘Acting performance’. I’m always doing a course on something and everything. My Brain needs stimulation or I will end up strung out. Wasted: physically and metaphorically.
I also have an MA (Hons)in the school of hard knocks. Speaking of which I start my (ahem..) Masters in Creative Writing with the Open University in October 2016. WOOP!
I help manage a retro and vintage accessories online business to bring in some cash. If that is your vibe -check my shop out at https://www.labellabijouxltd.co.uk
I volunteer/ work with Mental health charities. Doing anything and everything I can. I do loads of dance workouts to keep fit and focused.
I can only work out to an epic dance playlist or there is no point.I love to dance and I love music.
I love cats and all our earthling friends. I have nearly had massive fisty cuffs with people about my passion for animals.
I’m not trying to sell anything on this blog. Rest at ease, soldier.
I am a writer. Always have been.
I am a proud Mom to a gorgeous little girl. She means everything to me because I never thought I could have kids with all the crap I did to my body but there you go..
She is my living delight.
So, I figured if I start writing about my thoughts and experiences – regularly, I may stop over analyzing and over criticizing myself. I am harsh.
It has worked.
I have made a few friends and gained some new perspective and interests. I know a lot about actions and consequences.
I spent 16 month’s (up until 06/05/2015) fighting social services and my ex partner,because they wanted my child to be put up for adoption,in case, I emotionally neglected my child, because of my mental health issue’s. My new life started on the 6th may 2015.
I FOUGHT A DRACONIAN SYSTEM AND GOT MY BABY BACK. FREEDOM!
Write what you know, right?
I got betrothed on the 22/06/2016. It was all about the jazz. New Orleans theme.
See all these ‘bad’ things are balanced with good’ things. I always look for that silver lining.
I am not that person who hides her skeletons in her closet.
I like to rattle and rag the bone out of them.
I love my family even though most of my Dad’s side think I am the devil’s spawn. I find it hilarious. I have to, otherwise, I would have a few more issues and I am doing just fine with the ones I have already.
I love my family roots.
I was born in South Africa. I have French nationality and I have a mongrel mix of Russian and English to add to my Latin temprement.
I’m 100% dysfunctional but use my weaknesses, to turn them into a strength
I love to observe people and I have a warped sense of humor at times. ( I can be ridiculously silly and childish in my sense of humor or quite sarcastic)
I may share some new ways of coping in this life, in a way that I never have, and a bunch of other stuff. I write for myself first and foremost.
welcome everyone 😀. I write a lot as you can see. Ha.
So that is a rather large bit about me.
I’ve been blogging since September 2015. I’m impressed that I have found a bunch of lovely flowers who get me – I kind of get some of you too!
P.S I love the theater,laughing, music writing and reading, movies- Horror films, learning, cardio dance workouts, playing pool and volunteering. Haribos, cookies, licorice, cocktails,traveling and I am sure there will be a load of other likes and loves that will crop up when I remember them.
