10 things

going to share 10 things about me I was inspired to do this by another blogger, lets see if I can come up with 10 things ya’ll don’t know about me…

I’ve had two previous guide dogs. they were both female. goldie who was a golden retriever and Maisie who was a yellow lab. They both retired early.

My depression runs in the family. My gramma on moms side had chronic debilitating depression for most of her life.

I had meningitis when I was 7. Luckily it was just the viral one, not the bacterial kind. I was hospitalised for 2 weeks when I got it.

When I was 5 I got a rash all over my body and my mom thought I had leukaemia. We still aren’t sure to this day what it actually was but again I was hospitalised for it.

I learned to touch type at age 9. It is one of the few things I am thankful for that the school for the blind taught me.

When I was 21 I had a huge birthday party. Its a thing here to have a big party for your 21st. There were about 200 people at mine. We had a karaoke and a dj and lots of food.

I was anorexic as a teen. Nowadays we are more bulimic than anorexic but we still tend to restrict sometimes or do anorexic type behaviours.

I was hospitalised at age 17 for acute stress related disorder, which I now know was the very start of my ptsd symptoms coming out, I was later rediagnosed about a year later with complex ptsd and then diagnosed with did later on again after that.

I have won medals and trophys for gymnastics, I used to participate in them when I was little.

I am fiercely independent. Its a quality I admire about myself. If I can do something by myself, I will. I’m not against asking for help but I like to try things on my own too.
