I'm Back!! But where have I been? | Lifestyle Update


Hey Beauties...
Wow it really has been such a long time! I thought my first post back should be a just a quick update as to what has happened and why I haven't posted in so long. I think I owe you all that much at least, without going into too much boring detail of course.
First of all let me say a massive thank-you to everyone that has stuck around, shown your support, sent messages, a big hello to all you lovely new followers and readers, and a huge apology for my absence.

So where have I been?
In a nutshell I have been dealing with A LOT of personal issues, which I will indulge you in shortly, and decided it needed to take a well deserved break to find myself again, get my head screwed back on and concentrate on the more important things in life, such as my Daughter. 

What's been going on?
I wont bore you with too much detail, mostly because it is pretty personal and very long winded. Basically, back in May 2014, me and my FiancĂ© Oli, Tias Dad, split up after almost 7 years together. I wasn't expecting it and to make a very long story short, there was another girl involved. Anyway, he moved out of my house, leaving me and Tia, which was tough enough on its own.
 However around that Time, or about a month later, I was diagnosed with Chronic Biological Depression, Anxiety and OCD, so that was quite a huge adjustment to deal with as I was diagnosed 7 years ago with Depression and Anorexia. Just after the split I had lost over a stone in weight in just over 2 weeks and basically since then my year has been getting progressively worse. I realised that because of my OCD, I would get stressed out quite a lot more especially if something wasn't how I wanted it or in my control, which due to my anxiety and Depression would cause me to sleep, sometimes to a point where I could not stop myself sleeping. Let me know if you want me to do some posts on how I deal/live with it ect. I don't really want to get into too much detail in this post.

What am I doing now?
Now I have been dealing with my depression and anxiety pretty well I would say although my OCD still needs some controlling at times, but I don't sleep as much as I used to so that's progress. Anyway I decided enough was enough and I dusted myself off, stood up tall and completely changed my outlook on things. I've gotten to the point of not caring what people think of me and I am actually really proud of how far I have come in the past 6 months, mostly on my own but also with the help of a few extremely close friends and family. I have completely changed my style, bought a whole new wardrobe, changed my hair and developed a positive, F*** you attitude. 
Me and Oli still get along, we have our ups and downs, and as far as my 'Mental Health issues' I have my good and bad days but its looking good so I decided it was about time I got back into doing something I love and give myself back some structure and routine.

I hope you enjoyed this post, as I said it's just a quick post to get me back in the swing of things and update you all. If you would like future posts on anything I have mentioned above (except my break-up) then please feel free to leave a comment below and I will see what I can do! Here's a little snap of my new daring hair hope you like it.
