So I recently read Zoe Sugg’s Girl Online and it inspired me to start a blog. To tell you the truth I know next to nothing about blogging, but after learning that it helped Zoe when dealing with anxiety I thought I’d give it a bash. So here I am.
I’m a 20 year old British girl with the mind of a fifty year old. I don’t do clubbing, parties, drinking, I work full time in marketing and have a long-term boyfriend. I’m pretty boring really. Having problems with anxiety doesn’t help – the thought of going for a night out in a club terrifies me. I tire very quickly when I’m out, and my home has become my ‘safe place’, so when I’m away from it for too long I seem to think that I’m not safe or that something awful will happen and suddenly decide that I have to go home. Right this second. It’s very unsettling and I think people think I’m a bit of a psycho. But I’m not, I just haven’t quite learnt how to control my brain yet.
I have a wonderful yet slightly dysfunctional family. I don’t live with my mother – I live with my dad and stepmother, who has bought me up since the age of four. They really keep me going.
Does anyone else create ‘safe places’? Where are yours?
Best wishes & Merry Christmas,
