Journeling

Journal.jpgI’m probably skipping ahead… but so is my will 😊

I’m quite sick – my health is precarious at best.  I have multiple sclerosis and bi-polar lite.  It’s a lot of illness for a 31 year old girl (now 32 year old woman).

And journeling is how I process everything.  It has helped me realise my actual feelings about a lot of things and find my authentic voice.

Half-way through writing a book called ‘My MS-ey Life’ I realised it was all pretty, romanticised bullshit.  It was difficult but I started to be honest with myself.  Having MS sucks many balls.

Life has felt better since then, and I’m making more healthy decisions.

It is well known in the alt. health world for its therapeutic value and I thoroughly endorse it.

(I might still write the book but it will look very different.)

      Thank you so much it warms my heart to know there’s a community of us out there. I will read your blog thoroughly and hopefully we can collaborate on our wellness techniques. I was diagnosed at 23 and it’s been such a rough journey – I completely lost my sanity at one point – I’ll share my mental hospital story at some point it’s quite funny. At this point I’m so positive and my self-care is through the roof. I just bought a stress ball… ooh nice. Thank you for following me it means so much – yay to good things and good people and journeling :))) Thank you xxx

        It is only natural to go through some mental changes or issues after dealing with a lot of struggles. I am so happy to hear that you are positive and taking good care of yourself! It is so important to remember that you have to be number 1 in life, I am still working on that thought!!
