Today marked the publication of my 50th post here on my blog!
It’s difficult for me to stick at things like this, so I want to celebrate the personal achievement!
Here’s a look back on just a handful of my posts so far…
Raw cacao vs cocoa – By far my most popular post! Four years ago I started this blog as a nutrition and fitness blog and this was one of my first posts. I spent a lot of time researching and writing it and it paid off!
Behind smiling eyes – this is the first post of my personal story battling bipolar disorder, which I may or may not publish later as a memoir. It links on to the other three posts in that series I’ve published so far. There’s a lot more to come!
Depression as an opportunity – I like this post because it was the discovery of something good I experience for myself from the really dark times. It’s not just empathy and understanding we gain from depression, but an opportunity to step up and morph ourselves into who we really want to be.
Self-harm in my life – It’s hard to admit I’ve self harmed quite a lot over the last decade, but here it is. I described in this post the reasons why I personally started harming myself and the different methods I used to cope with undiagnosed bipolar disorder.
My suicide attempt that went unnoticed – like self-harm, suicide attempts are very hard to disclose, but I find the message in this post very important. I’m certainly not the first to have a suicide attempt go unnoticed and I won’t be the last. This post is more about the reality of the dangers unnoticed attempts pose.
Getting a quick grip on anxiety and intrusive thoughts – I’ll be posting more methods of dealing with depression, anxiety, OCD and bipolar disorder in the future, but this is a breathing technique I find really helpful in the moment.
Of course there’s far more here on this blog than just these posts. I encourage you to have a bit of a browse and to follow me as I continue my blogging journey!
Thank you all for your support and for following me thus far! The community here on wordpress.com is amazing and that’s what has kept me keep coming back and posting!
