Hello from me

I’m Laura. I’m 31 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.

A few years ago 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 blackspotblog@gmail.com*.

    Writing is cathartic so blogging is a wonderful outlet to express emotions. You’re brave to share also what happened to you, pat yourself on the back, so happy to connect to your blog. Deb

    Hi there, I’m more than twice your age, but like you I’ve spent quite a bit of time working through some painful stuff. Back in the early 1990s I crashed and burned emotionally. However, I feel I managed to come out the other end of it.

    If you can stand reading about other peoples struggles, and find it helpful to do so, then please feel free to take a look at my memoir.

    Take care, be kind to yourself :0)

    Hi Laura, wow some bleak stuff in there, and so beautifully expressed. I think that’s what a lot of us blog for, to be able to express our deepest thoughts, as eloquently as we can, and to connect with people. All of which you are doing. Stay with that, and us. All the best, Enda
