First one… scared to bits!!!

Welcome to my blog. I’m not sure where this journey will take us, all I know is that right now I need to write. I’ve been feeling it for a few weeks and I’ve been randomly writing a few thoughts down and sharing a little bit on social media. I always feel a little lighter after I get my thoughts out and one of my friends suggested I start a blog. 

I laughed and said who would actually want to read about the shit I’m going through. She pointed out that recently I’ve been getting so many positive comments on my posts about my marathon journey and that people have been texting me to say how inspired they are. 

It got me thinking. If I can help even just a few people out by posting a few random comments on Instagram and Facebook, imagine what I could do if I delved a little deeper and was completely transparent on my journey so far and the struggle I’ve been through? What if I was brutally honest about my mental health battle and the depths I’ve been to? What if just one person takes a step forward in their journey instead of backwards because my words helped them feel that they weren’t alone? 

So here we are. It’s terrifying to put myself out here like this and to know that all my ugly bits will be on display but I decided that if I can help even just one person, then it’s worth it. And knowing that people are inspired also helps me get through my difficult days and makes me strive harder for my goals. So don’t hold back in sharing with me if anything I said has helped you. 

I’m not going to try and pretend I’m great at writing or to fluff things up. I’m going to be brutally honest and tell it in my own way. So there’s going to be a lot of swearing, probably a lot of grammatical errors and also some pretty graphic and sensitive stuff covered when I go through my IVF journey. 

So buckle up and lets go on a crazy ride!

  2. Hey Jess thanks for dropping by at my pad. Just some silliness I do. I usually stick with music/film but CB likes to broaden his horizons now and then. Good luck with your journey and getting “comfortable with Me (You)”. Once that happens it becomes a “who gives a shit” kind of thing. As long as I’m taking care of business and living and let living things seem to be pretty good. Take it cool. CB

  3. After reading several of your posts I figured this one would be the best place to comment. I am also coming out of an incredibly dark place, one that almost took my life on several occasions. I was told many times things would get better, many times I didn’t believe it, but things actually are. I was told that I was on a journey, but there are times it feels more like a battle, a battle for survival. But I am fighting on, I hope you too keep fighting on. Life is an amazing thing, and I am really starting to appreciate it again. Rock bottom is a rough place to find yourself, but we can always go up, we don’t need to stay there. Take care…E

      1. I know we feel isolated in our corners, but there are other people out there going through their battles, we aren’t alone as we think. We need to reach out and give each other a reassuring nod, we’re all in this together.
