When life gets in the way …

When life gets in the way …

I started this blog with the intentions of writing a post every day or every couple of days hahahaha I was so naive!

Although its great to get all your thoughts out, it can be a little disheartening when you know that no one is really reading them. Its also harder than I thought to find the time to write, working full time with 2 kids doesn’t leave much time for anything let alone writing a blog.

Even when you have some extra time, it always seems best to use it wisely, with spring coming in, I have been using my extra time to clear some cupboards, clear out old clothes for the charity shop and generally everything else except writing here.

In terms of my own life, I have had a new diagnosis of Body Dysmorphia. I’ve not started my CBT treatment yet but it makes sense to how I’ve felt about my body for a long time.

I suppose that is another new journey I will be able to blog about as I start my treatment. I’ve always been quite a private person and no one really knows about my new diagnosis. I’m not quite sure how I feel about it all yet or what people will think if I tell them about it.

Its strange if you have a sore leg you would see your DR and probably be quite open about it with family and friends, yet if you are having problems with your mind, you feel like you can’t tell anyone in fear of what they will think. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health, so why do we as a society make it so hard to talk about?

Hopefully I’ll get back to writing more regularly and can update others on my new journey.
