As far as writing a blog goes, that's a pretty cool milestone to reach I'd say. However, given that I've been writing this blog for more than 4 years now I'd say that was pretty poor form! It amounts to only 25 blogs per year.
Much as I enjoy writing, it is quite exhausting to sit and focus on any one subject for an extended period of time these days. For the past 4 years or so I have delved deep into my personal life and shared things I thought relevant. Things that would help others realise they are not alone. That, in and of itself, has been difficult. Mostly because things that I have written have had to be diluted somewhat. Mostly for the sake of my own sanity! It has been difficult to divulge personal information to perfect strangers. More recently, I have shared information that I have never disclosed to anyone outside my innermost circle of friends (consisting of about 3 people!)
It is important to me to voice my experiences in order to help others but simply thinking about these things has been mentally draining. Especially with my new job in the mix! Thinking about things that should be shared, cutting out some things that I'm just not ready to share and sharing those things has taken it's toll on me.
I've been experiencing crippling loneliness of late. I guess that's down to living alone again (although now I have my cat too). It's often so difficult to talk about being alone because I have a LOT of truly incredible friends but even when I've been out and surrounded by my lovelies recently, I've felt so alone and isolated. I'm hoping it's just a passing funk!
I will endeavour to keep blogging as I believe my blog helps people. I do have two blogs backed up and ready for release. One of them I'm still only 5% sure I will share as it's quite a traumatic blog for me.
I just want to give huge thanks for those who read my blog, share my blog and continue to show their support via the Facebook page. It's very difficult being so open about my mental health and putting myself out there for all to see.
So, thanks to all of my readers and I hope you all stay in touch!
