How my blog started…well, I wanted to raise awareness of mental health, especially of dissociative identity disorder, which is my primary diagnosis. My blog also focuses on therapy and on my psychotherapy sessions. But over time it has evolved and now includes daily living, recipes, quotes, etc. I had an old blog under another name but I deleted it and restarted using this one about 5 years ago.
My two pieces of advice would be to be real, and honest. Write from the heart. And write what you know! Oh and write often and be engaging! Respond to comments! Ok thats way more than two pieces, lol!

And I nominate the following bloggers for this award!
trina of its good to be crazy sometimes
emilia of my inner mish mash

The book pimped

I’m reading a fantastic book at the moment, it’s called pimped and it’s by Samantha Owens. It’s a really really good read and I would highly recommend it.

It’s a non-fiction book, a memoir, a true life story.

The thing is this poor teenager had to go through our shocking, really shocking. But they are all to relate able to me some of them at least especially the sexual abuse. Since I was abused not in the same way but in a similar way. I mean I wasn’t pimped out to men, it wasn’t that sort of abuse, but I was raped and so I can relate to what she went through in that way.

If you’re not easily triggered, and you enjoy true stories, I would highly recommend this book to you.

It’s available on audible and probably in kindle format as well.


Remember I did a presentation a few weeks ago on schizophrenia for college? Well my results are in. I got 75 percent. That’s a fantastic result. Anything over 70 is a first class honour. I am ecstatic. Thrills to bits. I cant believe I got such a great result. The feedback I got was awesome too. Not many people in the class got a very high mark, so I am so happy that I did. I must have made an impression. I know a lot of the class liked the way I presented. They all said I was good and had a good speaking voice and presented the topic clearly and simply. I’m absolutely delighted with the two grades I’ve gotten yesterday and today. That’s is two parts of my module completed now. I got a 60 on my article review and a 75 on my presentation. One more to go and I will hand that in next week, I wont have the result for a few weeks though after I hand in the journal of learning. Once I get my result the 3 parts of the module will be put together and then an overalll grade will be given. Anyway. Just so happy right now. It’s a real confidence boost.

I had a Fantastic time today at the party!

The party was amazing! We had so much fun at it!
I am sure some of you saw my posts to my blog and on facebook with all of the photos and video and stuff!
It was a BBQ! There was lots of very yummy food! I ate way too much! I was sooo baaad!
I am surely going to be up at weigh in next wednesday! I hope I wont be but who knows!
There was burgers, potato wedges, chicken, sausages, and then things like salad, different types of salad, there was brishetta and dip, chips, cake, birthday cake and cupcakes.
It was amazing!
We had the music blaring, and were having lots of fun dancing and just enjoying the nice weather!
The party was a kids party, but the adults were able to drink alcohol too!
I didnt drink at all though, all I had was pepsi, and tea!
We got there at 3 Pm and didnt get home until midnight! What a blast though!
Really really enjoyed it!


Random saturday ramblings

I woke up early. Dad came in to the bedroom at 7 AM. He woke me up. I didn’t get up until after 8 though. I had a nice healthy breakfast and then I read blogs for a while. I’m having a very low key day today. Not doing a whole lot. Just relaxing. I rang my mom earlier. Its raining where they are. It has rained here too this morning but its dried up now. Im planning on finishing my book today. I need to finish it. There is about 3 hours of it left to read. I will get to it later after I’ve had dinner. The dogs are all hyped up. Dad went out for a while, he didn’t walk the dogs though. He’s back now and going to rest for an hour before making dinner. He’s still getting along well with me. He’s not driving me crazy which is good. My mood is good too today. I’ll take it. I love that I woke up feeling good. Beats feeling sad and low. I hope I continue to feel good for the rest of the day.

Nonfiction prompt, June 1st, the haunted wordsmith

Today’s prompt: What is a city that you would love to visit or have visited?

I have visited Paris!It was lovely there! But very very expensive! But I enjoyed my time there. I did some touristy things, like visiting the Eifel tower, and going on a cruise on the river, and visiting a few other places. I would go back again, although I didn’t think the french people were very friendly! They can be a bit rude at times! Not all of them of course, but the ones I came in contact with were!
Overall the city was nice, though.
