New here. Thought I'd join as a way of standing up, bravely and accepting, I have anxiety and depression. It's kinda hard to admit, right? Been off work since November and went back last week on phased return which I don't think was a great decision as now feel I've gone back several steps and thinking I need to be signed off again and/or quit my job. I find it hard at the moment to know what is the depression/anxiety and what is a 'real thought'. I have a tendency to avoidance.
Anyway, that is not all me, so here goes: -
I love music, love, love, love music. Going to gigs is my favourite thing to do, and I have travelled all around the world to see the bands I love. My favourite band is The Maccabees and Hugo White is my guitar hero. I also love Pearl Jam, and have done since I was 16.
I am learning the guitar, piano and have singing lessons.
I am always reading and love buying books even though I have a book case full of unread books. It makes me feel secure to know that I will never run out of books. Libraries make me happy. I am going through a Russian writers stage at the moment.
I want to be a writer and have written 3 novels, and have 2 in half done states. my New Years Resolution is to send out my work.
Thanks for reading to the end. Looking forward to knowing you all better
