So I have a blog ~ I think!
I’m assuming I’ve set things up correctly but what is it they (whoever they are) say about assuming? “Don’t assume as it makes an ass out of u & me” something like that anyhow.
The purpose of this? Well, people are forever telling me I should write (maybe I have an irritating voice that they don’t want to hear, or maybe this way they get to choose what random waffles they ‘have’ to endure) anyhow, I do get told it frequently and although I am a shy person, once people start to get to know me and I share some of my life experiences, “You should write a book” invariably crops up at some point!
They (again, whoever ‘they’ are) say that everyone has one book in them, I have about 20, they’re all intertwined and mixed together & I don’t know where to start to unravel them. I figured if I started blogging instead, I could get some of the words that constantly fill my mind written down & try to straighten them out.
Photo Therapy ~ see, I was trying to be clever with my title, Phototherapy “The use of light in the treatment of physical or mental illness” whereas I use photography for the mental health issues I have dealt with and still deal with on a daily basis. Sadly, there’s still a big stigma about such issues so I pop a smile on my face every day and try to get on with life the best I can. The majority of people I know have no idea about the turmoil and angst that I battle with (or try to accept) on pretty much a daily basis.
I’m hoping that by sharing my thoughts and experiences, I will not only be helping myself, but may even help someone else along the way, so feel free to either sit with me & have a cuppa, or pop your boots on & lets walk at least a little part of this journey ‘they’ call life together.
