Welcome back to my blog! I am going to apologise first and foremost as I have been really absent from here. I’ve taken some time for myself to just find my feet again and realise who I am and where I’m going in life so I’m hoping you guys will understand!
How are you all? Tell me all in the comments below I’d love to hear what you’ve all been up to and enjoying and how life has been treating you!
2018 was a whirlwind of a year for me with so many exciting things happening, firstly I turned 21 and had the most amazing birthday surrounded by all my fave people and spent a lovely few days in Brighton (I’ve spoken about that trip in a previous blog if you want to read more!)
I then went downhill with regards to my conditions and am in the middle of the mother of all flare ups (it’s been on going since March….my body hates me but that’s okay I hate it too so we’re all even) but I did get to go and see Ed Sheeran and the Foo Fighters in June and that was flipping INSANE…I will admit I was so poorly when I went to see the Foo Fighters I fell asleep mid way through the gig in my wheelchair (yes that’s a personal achievement and FUCK YOU STREP THROAT) Ross had a fab time tho and that’s all that matters!
So since then I’ve managed to come to terms with my flare, yes I’m on crutches and yes it sucks but actually it could be worse, I’m still me, I’m still Scarlett the pink haired weirdo that’s obsessed with unicorns, books and generally is an embarrassment to society but that’s how I’m comfortable and if you don’t like it that’s not my problem to be honest….
So overall at the minute I’m in a bloody good place, my mental health is 90% there with the odd day where it wants to ruin my life but that’s the thing about mental health it’s unpredictable and wants to be the centre of attention!
For future blogs this year I will be using this as a book review/life update/chronic illness blog and I’d love you all to stick with me on the journey….sat writing this now I’ve bloody missed writing everything down and getting it out in the open even if 1 person reads this or 1000 it’ll be worth it to me!
As always my inbox is always open to anyone struggling or anyone who just wants to say a friendly hello. I’d love if you followed my social media pages and also shared the shit out of my blog and let me know what you think 🙂
My Facebook and Instagram handles are: unconventionallynormal so I’m pretty easy to find so drop by and say hi!
Signing off for now (this time not for so long I promise)
