Parenting is far from easy, this much is fact. But then you add in complications. That said I guess I will start at the beginning so you have a rough idea whom I am, my family is, n why this blog has come to me.
May 2012, yes that long ago I did a pregnancy test, I remember it vividly sat in the bathroom of a high street department store, peeing on a stick, and then waiting, the wait that appeared to take an eternity, whilst not the most glamorous of settings it served its intended purpose BUT their was a issue, I am legally blind, have been since March 2010. I couldn’t see a line let alone two on said test, so ended up Whatsapping a photo of said test to a friend who knows whom she is and asking her what she could see! The outcome being those 2 lines are now a human called Jemima who will be 6 years young in January.
That is the crux: now to the more complex aspects of why I have opted to set up a blog.
I am many things yet nothing, I am someone yet something, I live with and deal with a lot, far more than many actually could or try to comprehend and that impacts on every element of my being.
I am a solo parent, all be it dating an incredible human called Chris.
I am a human of lived experience, which includes but doesn’t just include as to list all would bore you to tears n pain my hands to type:
Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
and have I mentioned I am blind.
Alongside all this I also happen to be Gender Fluid, Pansexual and Jewish.
Whilst this blog will cover a lot including my day to day life, it may also let you the reader into darker aspects of my being, as earlier this year I was raped twice in 6 days by someone whom was at the time a friend, his actions resulted in me loosing my Mental Wealth and ending up in a dark hole of Mental Illness once more. I am now left failed by the system as have had the police tell me due too lack of witnesses and or CCTV they can’t take the case Luther, no support from the Community Mental Health Trust ie NHS I am having to self fund private Trauma Therapy – if you can spare anything itd mean a lot
So settle down, take a seat, and come on a journey as I attempt to process my head via the medium of blogging
