I'm A Serial Blogger...

I'm a serial blogger...and I love it!

I have always been into writing for as long as I can remember and I first started a Blog after the birth of my baby girl (who's not such a baby!) almsot 2 years ago. It was a horror birth and I had so many friends that wanted to know what happened but telling it again and again was hard, tiring and quite frankly a bit re-traumatizing. So I wrote it, once, and shared it. I could express what had happened so much better and it really helped other people to udnerstand what happened.

A few weeks later I started on another weird adventure- being admitted to hospital for mental health. I started writing the Blog again, partly to keep my friends updated about what was happening but also as a way of recording my thoughts and remembering what was happening at that time. At one stage I had over 70 readers and I would get messages every day from people who said my blog had helped them with their own journeys or even just to understand a bit more about Depression & PTSD.

A few unfortunate turns of events meant I had to make my Blog private, but I still love it :-) There's something so great that starts when I sit down and start writing and it is truly amazing to look back and read over what was going on in my head and with life a few weeks/months/years ago. 

Writing is such a good way to express yourself and to help you figure out what's going on in your head. I encourage everyone to try it!
