A little about me

Well, after about three years of writing my blog, I’ve decided it was about time that I updated my ‘About Me’ page so here I am, having evolved from who I was back in 2014 into who I am today.

This blog is about my feelings and opinions on life from my view in my rather sensitive and often complicated mind. I enjoy writing but I’d say that was more or less equal to my love of coffee. I’m also a cat lover but it’s unfortunate for me that I am very allergic to cats so I can’t have one living with me. However, I do share my life and home in England with George, my sometimes demented electric wheelchair who can do an impressive three-point turn in a tight corner when he wants to impress, and Brian, my stairlift whose speed is determined by what mood he happens to be in at the time I want to travel.

I have a passionate interest in mental health as I have Emotional Intensity Disorder (EID) which is also known as Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). This is ‘what it says on the tin’ – my emotions are greatly magnified when compared to people without EID which means I get hurt very easily and I’m super-sensitive. I wasn’t diagnosed till 1996 so it’s been a few years since then and I’ve learned to live with it pretty well now. One of the good things about having a mental health condition is that I often get the opportunity to tutor students who are studying mental health practices at my local University which I very much enjoy.

Well, that’s me, in a nutshell! Thanks for stopping by at my blog – I hope you’ll stay awhile and come back and visit often. It’s always nice to make new blogging buddies so you are very welcome here … Ellie x 🙂

    1. I feel very touched by your message. I should thank you too for all the caring support you give me. You are a very valuable member of this bloggers’ community. I will definitely connect with your new blog – i feel honoured that you have asked me. Sending you healing love and hugs, my friend xxx

  1. My, Friend, I read your new blog right the way through and can identify with so much of it, it’s almost like looking in a mirror, especially the mom transference parts. I had a similar relationship with a therapist for 8 years but again, it all ended in tears (mine, that is,not hers). You have been through one hell of a lot and have no need to be ashamed of anything you did. It was your only way to survive. You are definitely not ‘stupid’, ‘crazy’ or ‘weird’. If anything, it was those around you who deserved those labels. I coped with my abuse triggering off shameful orgasms, and then endlessly tried to repeat that feeling, guiltily, by myself too so you are not alone and i daresay there are many more who would like to brave enough to tell people. I have so much respect for you . Huge, huge HUGS for you, and love to you for the courage you have shown in this blog xxx

  2. Nice to read about you..and wish you a very happy time in future as compared to your experienced at your childhood..!
    As well as very welcome on my blog too..!
    Stay blessed and live around me.. 🙂
    Cheers
    Tahir
