After a few months of posting, I guess it’s time for a proper “About Me” page. When I started this blog, I was pretty lost, isolated and suffering from deep seated anxiety and depression. Writing about my deepest and darkest thoughts help me heal. After a number of comments and interacting with other blog writers, I’ve gained a sense of community and hope, and knowing I’m not alone in my thoughts has given me an anchor to hold on to when I’m at my darkest and most stressed.
Like the blog title says, I’m a twenty-something female, using this corner of the internet to gain some insight into myself. I suffer from self diagnosed social anxiety and depression. Some days are better than others. Some days I can’t get out of bed. I want to get better. Writing helps, but I’m still very shy, even on the internet. I’ll reply to anyone who contacts me, but I’m hesitant to initiate contact. Please don’t be offended.
You are welcome to comment on anything. If you want to contact me privately, you can reach me here. I hope you enjoy your visit to my mind.
My Original “About Me”:
I’ve tried blogging a few times, but I never really got the hang of it. Never sure what to write. I didn’t want to expose my thoughts to the world, either they would be too boring or too intimate.
Not this time.
Consider this an experiment in the human psyche. I will post my thoughts, feelings and vicious observations about myself for the internet to consume. What drives me, what drives me crazy, everything I think is wrong with me. I can detach from my real world identity, without fear of pity or disgust or exasperation from my “friends”. So here you go hive mind. Feel free to offer advice or tear me apart, or just yell at me to stop being so self centered and needy.
You’d think this sort of thing was meant for a diary, stuffed under a bed somewhere. I want my thoughts out in the open, where maybe someone will hear me. Either to help me or maybe I can help someone else, by showing them they aren’t alone in their thoughts.
