5 things about me you probably didn’t know

X ray by Gil Elvgren

 

With a new year and a new domain comes somewhat of a fresh slate but to be honest this year is no different than the last year or the year before unless I make it.

So I’m starting off this new blog domain with a few things about be you may not have known.

Many of these things are very personal but I find if I can’t admit them to you and my friends I don’t have a hope with coping with them do I!

So lets begin

1. I hardly wear make up normally

I know I’m a beauty blogger but the truth is I hardly wear make-up in fact its quite common for me to leave the house with no make up on at all. Sometimes I will just put some mascara on but to be honest unless its a special event or I’m reviewing something I’m very lazy!

 

2. I wear pj’s all the time!

Seriously I’m the type of person who strips of their jeans and top and slips into a large t-shirt and running pants as soon as I get home! I have all these lovely clothes which I do love to wear but I hardly do.

 

3. I have servere scoliosis

Scoliosis for those who don’t know is a curvature of the spine. I have severe scoliosis of over 80 degrees of benditure in all three directions it can form in. To give you some contrast and standard spine has 0 degrees.

This deforms my body causing my ribs, hips, back, chest, shoulders, neck and legs to be twisted. It does cause me some pain and it defiantly affects my self esteem. Some day’s I’m fine and I barely notice it others I want to drive my fingers into my flesh and physically move my ribs and spine. They are unsure what or why it formed they simply know if formed during adolescence and will continue to get worse over the years. I had to wear a brace for 2 years in high school and I wish I had been more responsible and had worn it more but in the end it didn’t help. I’m currently looking into seeing a spine specialist in adelaide to get a few opinions on options at the moment.

 

4. I have been on anti-depressents since I was 12

I have depression. I was lucky enough to have a mother who took notice of my moods and thought maybe I wasn’t being a whiny teenager and something was actually wrong. It still affects me today and I still have off days but I worked through a lot of my issues  but still have a serotonin imbalance. I also suffer from moderate anxiety which can pretty much cripple me and cause me to have panic attacks. Which is super fun.

 

5. I’m incredibly lazy

Seriously my biggest enemy is procrastination. There are so many things I want to do but I find it hard to stay motivated or even if I am motivated I get distracted very easily. I always have so much to do and never enough time because I end up not managing my time well enough.

 

I hope these things give a little insight into who I am. Hopefully documenting them and openly expressing them helps me to work on a few things.

      Aww thank you!!
      Somedays I really don’t want to even get out of bed. This was a big issue for me when I was younger around your age. Now that im 22 it’s more that I don’t want to leave the house or go to work. Sadly we have to push past it but I know so many people with depression or anxiety issues. Seriously it’s such a common issue.

      Thanks so much for the comment!
      Jen
