Who the hell is she?

Mixed chic with and afro, shamless selfie taker, mental health advocate, coffee lover.

guess I’ll start by introducing myself…

My name is Lizzy was also known as Liz, Elisabeth, Ellie, Lilly, Dude, Kirk, sister, daughter, auntie and probably a few names I don’t know about.I’m 36 years old, very close to being 37 years old but still 36! I live in Nottingham, England where I have pretty much lived all my life. I have a mother, 4 brothers and auntie to a million (8) nieces and nephews. Our clan is all totally bonkers!

I have spent most of my adult life battling mental health issues, depression, an eating disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and all the other fun stuff that comes attached to being totally crazy.
I can’t really remember there ever being a trigger for the problems starting they just kind of crept up on me. Mostly I have been very secretive about it all not wanting to open up to anyone fear of being judged, but as the years have gone by a realise that keeping it all bottled up to yourself is probably one of the most destructive things you can do.I worry! A lot! Too much! I worry about how much I worry. I can spend days over thinking and worrying about a situation or something that someone has said to me, driving myself and everyone crazy lolNot totally sure what I expect to gain from this blog or if anyone of sound body and mind will read it, but I already feel somewhat lighter for getting just a few things out there in the open.

If anyone who reads this and has ever felt or experienced anything I speak about I hope you will realise you are not the only ones and you don’t need to keep it to yourselves. So get strapped in and follow me on this journey…
