I’m a 21 year old girl living in the UK. I have a husband and two lovely children. I’ve been married for 2 years now.
I blog mainly about my struggle with anxiety and depression. I’ve been struggling at varying levels for 3 years and I’m currently on prescribed medication for it.
Anxiety and depression are a big part of who I am, but I also play the piano, cello, ukulele and I sing. I love listening to music too, I find it really calms me down. I love reading, and again I find that it can calm me a lot. I feel lost without a book to read. I love spending time with my husband, he’s my best friend and I’m so grateful for him.
Another big aspect of my life right now is that my parents have just separated. This has really affected me deeply and has hurt me quite a lot.
Anyway. I haven’t been to university but I intend to one day. I’m interested in getting a degree in either English Literature or Psychology. My experience with mental illness has led me to feel that a career in counselling might be something I am interested in.
I have 2 younger sisters and a younger brother, all of whom I’m very close to.
