The First Entry.

I’ve always been someone that loves to write, but I’ve never really had much to write about. I’ll start a diary in January and because my life was pretty mundane, I’d give up by March. I mean who wants to read about getting up and going to work or what I had on for tea on Friday night anyway?

However, what I’ve found more recently is that due to events that have taken place in my life over the past few years, I now have all these chapters rattling around in my head that I need to let out. I often find myself lying awake at night trying to make sense of my own story, overanalysing parts and wondering how I ended up where I am?

I thought about writing a book but I have no idea what I’d achieve by doing that. And what would you even title it? Welcome to the life of a 28 (now 29) year old who has been through some really shitty stuff? It doesn’t exactly sound like a Sunday Times Best Seller or something that anyone would rush to the bookstore to purchase.

But when I was going through some of this complete and utter shite, I found myself spending hours and hours on Google just trying to find someone else who’d been through the same, someone I could talk to about it all. Unfortunately I didn’t find anyone open enough to help me and whoever I did find didn’t want to share any detail and was worried about what others would think. Whilst that’s completely understandable, I’m more open than that and I’m not ashamed of anything.

So instead of a potentially failed novel I created this blog, which is in essence a diary containing chapters of ‘stuff’ thrown together in the attempt to share my journey with the world. I won’t lie, it’s a really crappy diary about losing a parent, losing a child and being given shitty news over and over again – but with the hope that my story will have some kind of happy ending eventually…

And am I bothered if anyone actually reads it? No absolutely not. If nothing else, I get to leave my story in a very small corner of the internet which someone could stumble across one day. However, if this blog eventually helps just one person feel slightly less alone in the world, then it has achieved something.

My posts will be extremely open and I won’t hide anything from you just because it’s awkward or upsetting. Everyone has the right to their own opinion but if you get all judgemental,, I won’t take you on. If something is pretty rough I’ll add a trigger warning at the beginning of the entry so you can decide whether or not you want to read it.

And if I don’t write about something enough or you have any questions, use the contact page or find me on Instagram.

So here we go…
