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 🙂
