[ ADD ME ]


So I joined DT in 2008 at a really difficult time in a my life. I left school in 2007 at 16 and wanted to go straight into work but dad said I had to stay in education (you don't wanna get on the wrong side of my dad) so he enrolled me onto a media course, I enjoyed the photography aspect but the novelty soon wore off and I started skipping classes, then whole days..i went into town and blew all my savings on random crap I didn't need just to waste time till I could go home. I started to get really depressed doing nothing. my mum was pushing me hard to find a part time job, after months of applying I finally heard back from a café (I ended up working there for 6 years) I left last year. somehow I passed the media course?! but I got declined for year 2 so I applied to go full time at my job which was also declined! This was a real confidence knock..i told my parents I got it as to not let them down so I signed up for as many shifts as I could. there were good weeks and bad. on the bad days I found myself going for really long walks to avoid going home and being found out. I became an extremely good liar! after a year of doing this I applied for a college course out of desperation, I didn't hold much hope but I got accepted! I studied interior design, first year was fun I made a couple of friends and people seemed to like me especially my teacher ( a bit too much) I got a boyfriend. year 2 my good friend left, I felt lost without him, year 3 was traumatic I was sexually abused by an older student. and my boyfriend broke up with me coz I was self harming. so all in all I wasted 3 years doing that. I did find a job in interior design but I was miserable. the guys bullied me verbally and treated me like dirt! I stuck at it for 3 years. I recently quit ( that took A HELL OF ALOT OF GUTS) now finally i'm starting to get my life back on track, I have a new lovely boyfriend, I've moved out of home to live on my own, I have 2 cats, I have a car, and I have a new job as a support worker. I want to help people with mental health difficulties in the future but I know I have to get myself back on track first.
My diagnosis is Borderline Personality Disorder, Post traumatic stress disorder, generalised anxiety (especially socially) and depression.
I still struggle with these every day without a doubt but now I've changed my lifestyle and the people around me things are hopefully starting to improve. some days are easier than others, I struggle with my self harm urges but heck i'm doing so much better..thanks to my therapist who helped me explore my creativity, she was amazing. I'd even go as far to say she saved my life.

'Depression is also a form of fear, and at its deepest, it is also paralytic. It is as useless to ask a person immobilized by depression to summon the power of will as it is to bug a dance of a corpse.' Paul Gruchow, 'Letters to a Young Madman: A Memoir'

I love musicals! Wicked is my favourite. I like 90's music (my era). rock, anything decent really.
