I’ve been in a few Twitter chats recently where people have said they love to read personal posts from bloggers. I like to think all my posts are at least slightly personal and show a bit about who I am, but I also thought it was time to share a little bit more about me, and what better way than a ‘things you don’t know about me’ post? So here we go…

  1. I rarely get enough sleep

    Since being a teenager I have struggled to sleep. I go through phases of getting to sleep really easily and waking up every few hours, or lying awake for ages waiting to drift off. I have however found one way to help with the later – wave sounds make me think of lying on a beach sunbathing which helps me relax and drift off.

  2. I don’t think I’ll meet my 2017 goals

    I’ve set myself some goals on 2017 – exercise 3 times a week and learn Spanish. As usual things have started off well but part of me is waiting for the other shoe to drop. I have rarely finished new year’s resolutions when I have started them and often set my sights too high – hopefully if I try hard enough this year will be different.

  3. I’ve been diagnosed with a personality disorder

    In a previous post I talked about my recent diagnosis but didn’t mention what it was. There is still a lot I am trying to wrap my head around and I still change how I feel about it on a daily basis, but my dianosis has now changed from anxiety and depression to a personality disorder and I looking into various therapy options.

  4. There is only one type of food I refuse to eat

    Oysters and mussels – I guess snails and other gross things like that would be included in there too. Anything that has no real texture, looks like snot and has such a minimal taste that you have to focus on its slimy nature is just disgusting to me. There are other flavours I am not a fan of but I would never refuse to eat them.

  5. I hate sneezing

    I don’t know what it is about it, but I really, really, honestly dislike it. If I could wipe its existence off the face of the earth I would. Not only does it spread germs and disease, it makes you look like a moron, you loose control of anything you’re doing and it’s just plain uncomfortable.

  6. I don’t believe in romance

    I read romance novels, I gew up on Disney films and the idea of happly ever after makes me want to jump for joy, but whever anyone has ever done anything romantic for me I have either treated it with suspicion or laughed in their face (Yes, I’m kinda really mean). Don’t get me wrong I believe in love and I believe that’s what G and I have – but romance is just something to sell gifts, books and films. Sorry.

  7. I don’t want to actively ‘grow’ my blog

    I blog for me. If people read it that’s great. I love you for it and I hope that what I share maybe helps other people. But I am not blogging to grow it into a business or reach a certain amount of followers. I do it because I want to share my experiences and help othere people like me feel less alone.

  8. I feel bad for being ill

    There are times when I physically don’t function. I get tired more easily, I get trapped in my head or I just completely wig out. All of it is part of my constant battle with mental health. But worse than all of that is the fact that I feel guilty for being ill. I know I can’t help it and that I’m doing the best that I can, but I also know that I should be doing better, that I shouldn’t be so easily affected and that if it was anyone else they would be OK.

So there’s 8 new things you now know about me. What don’t I know about you?

One thought on “8 Things You Don’t Know About Me

  1. Interesting to read and I can honestly say that I feel exactly the same about these things (with the exception of sneezing which I don’t do very often anyway for some reason). This post has also given me an idea (as you suggested) to list some things that people don’t know about me either in my blog. Thanks for sharing, Ellie x 🙂
