Thanks to kimberlyf over at this girls got curves for nominating me for this lovely blogger recognition award!
Kimberlyf’s blog is great. I highly recommend you check it out. She blogs about her experiences with being bipolar and living with mental illness, I find her blog to be truly inspiring and so will you!
steps to accepting the award
1. Write about how and why you started blogging.
well i originally started blogging in 2012. originally my blog was just called many of us’s blog. I had the first blog for 3 years. But my domain ran out and i forgot to reregister and so it went dormant and so i restarted a new blog over here at therapy bits.
I blog about living with did, complex ptsd, and what its like to go through intensive psychotherapy. I also blog about my daily life, and I throw a sprinkling of quotes, recipes, songs, and reblogs in the mix too.
I wanted to start a blog originally because there werent many did people blogging out there, on wordpress, that I could find. I wanted to dispel the myths about did and ptsd and I wanted others to know they were not alone on their journey.

my advice to new bloggers would be
