A very good place to start!
Hello there, welcome to my first blog post!
I suppose, this is by way of an introduction to me and my life… so here goes!
For the purpose of this blog, you can call me Luna. As you may have guessed from the title of my page, this is based on the character of Luna Lovegood from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books. I love these books very dearly and find that listening to their associated Audio Books (read by the genius that is Stephen Fry) can help even on a day when all else seems broken.
If you have read my “about me” blurb then will already be aware that part of the purpose of this blog is to openly talk about my personal struggles with Anxiety and Depression in the various forms they present themselves. I was diagnosed early last year and it has taken me a good deal of time to come to terms with my diagnosis and what that means for me going forwards.
All in all, last year was quite the roller coaster! I bought my first house (WOOHOO go me!) complete with a mortgage-y thing and all the bills that come with it! I ended a relationship with my long-term partner once I’d realised that it was WAY beyond the point of repair. When combining these things with my mental health problems it is somewhat surprising that I feel strong enough to begin this journey now.
I hope to be writing posts as often as I can (at least once a week), in order that I have a written account of the things I have done this year.
I look forward to telling you more stories and sharing my life with you!
For the record, any names you see in my posts have been changed to protect all concerned!
Well… I guess that’s all for now!
