Welcome to Mad Girl to Made Girl.
I’m a twenty something (still earlyish twenties!) girl. I’m a daughter, a sister, a very lucky girlfriend, a best friend and a friend to others. I’d love to sit here and say I’m an ordinary girl, or should I say woman?. No I’ll stick with girl, woman sounds far too sophisticated for me!
But like most I suppose, I’m not quite what you’d describe as normal. I’ve very recently got my diagnosis of anxiety and depression. After years of not being diagnosed and suffering, I can’t lie, I was relieved when I finally got what I had been feeling diagnosed. This to me was the first step to finally getting back on track with life and living like a normal, happy twenty something should.
The reason for my blog? Well, my support network isn’t great and I feel very much that I am tackling this journey to feeling human again on my own. And what do we do in the 21st Century if we feel alone and need to talk? We turn to technology and that’s exactly what I’m doing. Sometimes the best support comes from those you don’t know.
It’s also a way of me to talk and discuss my journey without boring those I know who don’t always feel comfortable talking about it. I want to share my experience. I want to be able to help others who may be in the same position. Who don’t have quite the support they need right in front of them. I want to show it is possible to do this on your own and I will come out of it a Made Girl.
I’ll keep posting regularly, and it won’t always be about mental health, I will try to be a bit more diverse. Who knows what I’ll post, but maybe about books I’ve read, crafts I’m making, the gluten free/paleo lifestyle I try my best to keep to, gigs I’ve been to and other crazy things going on in the world of me. If that is your cup of tea then I very much look forward to writing for you.
Signing off for now,
Not quite Made Girl
