I’m Laura. I’m 29 years old and I love to write, sing and make stuff. I am a bit unhinged, but I reckon most interesting people are. I think there is a lot of pain in the world and this often gets in the way of us noticing the good. As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, I find trusting people and looking for the positives really hard. But I try to keep an open heart and an open mind.
Last year I had a breakthrough / breakdown, however you like to see it. I prefer the former. My diagnosis is major depression with complex PTSD. Lately the doctors have also tried to throw Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder into the mix. Frankly, I don’t believe in naming my illness, it doesn’t make any difference. It’s just who I am right now and I’m working through it.
Thanks for stopping by to read about my journey. If you like my blog, I’d love to hear from you. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
