I look at the last post I put here and I realise that it looks a little flippant. This place has been good to me, so I feel like I owe this blog at least one more post.
Two months ago I received a diagnosis for Attention Deficit Disorder, something that took quite a long time reach. Spending time and money investigating my own mental health is been one of the most difficult things to do, but looking at it from this end I wish I’d done it much earlier. Medication has helped a lot, but it’s life changes that began even before the course that is really bearing fruit. I realise that it’s only been a couple of months - a diagnosis, some pills and a new outlook does not mean everything is now a permanent and static improvement. In a way though, knowing where I am now means knowing that I can find my way back here - and I hope to keep pushing that boundary higher.
I would never had begun any of this if I hadn’t seen some wonderful people here using their own personal space as an outlet to deal with their own issues. I’m grateful for that.
I’m still trying to decide what exactly to do with this space. I occasionally get the urge to write still, but it becomes a passing fancy when I’m finding a lot of other forms of expression. Leaving this here as a bit of a dear diary high/low light of my life thing isn’t really that useful anymore either.
If you’re interested in catching up with me and you’re a Melbourne local, then just add me on facebook as I think I may trim this blog down to a sort of archive soon. Particularly if you share some common interests:
- Photography/Light painting
- Bike Riding
- Live bands & open mic nights
- Psytrance, doofs and lifestyle festivals
- Craft Beer/wine/bars
- Massage therapy
