At the start of my 22nd year, I thought I'd bring this project back.
In the past year my life has changed a lot. My Mum was very ill for a while before dying. I left uni, lost where I was living, lost my job and lost a lot of friends. I've been slowly trying to rebuild my life. I have somewhere to live, I have a job (with very few hours but it's all I can manage right now), I'm beginning to meet people again who I hope will become friends. I'm beginning to dabble in faith again for the first time since I was 14.
I've also become incredibly unwell will depression, anxiety, and anorexia, especially in recent months. This has brought it's own challenges and I'm trying to rebuild a purposeful life alongside the limitations these conditions impose. They have taken a lot of 'me', including my creativity, something which I hope doing this will help me to rekindle somewhat.
I can't promise that this account will always be happy or positive, but I will always try to keep it real.
