I sent out a request via twitter asking other bloggers to ask me some questions, to get to know me better. Here they are:
Questions from The lovely @inspiredbythev

Q1. If you could turn back time, would you?
That’s a tricky one, Id turn it back so I could re live my daughters first year. But without the PTSD and PND. But then if I think about it, despite me suffering with a mental illness, she has become a confident, independent little three year old who is doing so well. So it’s 50/50.
Q2. What is your favourite thing to do?
My favourite thing to do by myself is write. I love to write poetry and i’m working on my first book. It’s such a release to get everything off my chest. I use to love to dance, I have done classes since I was very young. But now I am always exhausted and don’t have the energy, ha! #mumlife
My favourite thing to do with my daughter is gardening. She loves it and her little face lights up.
Q3. When did you start writing and whats your favourite thing to do to unload?
I started writing from a very young age, I kept a diary. I have always written poetry. I started my Blog nearly a year ago in the hope to raise awareness and make a little difference. My favourite way to unwind would be to have a nice hot bubble bath, then grab a cuppa and get stuck in a book. I love a good crime or horror book. I find writing therapeutic to.

Q1. What made you start a blog?
I was approached to do an article for the birth trauma awareness week. I have always loved to write. I decided I was ready to share my story last year, I then continued to blog from there with the Huffington Post. I then created my own blog. I have loved it every since. It’s therapeutic but also great to try and raise awareness for something that is so important to me. Because it had such an impact on my life.

Q1. What post are you most proud of?
I would say I am most proud of my very first post. The Worst And Happiest Day Of My Life It took a lot of courage and strength to share it. I was scared of the repercussions. Would I get any negative comments etc..But I am glad that I chose to share it. As I said above I am trying my best to raise as much awareness as I can. I am a small fish in a big pond but every little helps.
Q2. What would be the title of your autobiography?
oooo I am actually writing my first book, I have completed my first draft so I will keep it a secret for now. I am hoping to release it this year, Fingers crossed. It may be a complete flop, but I tried ha!

Q1. Whats the hardest thing you’ve found whilst blogging?
I think the hardest thing I have found is finding the confidence to release each post, as I always worry about the back lash. I know not everyone is going to agree with you or the things you share, but I guess I find that quite nerve wracking.
Q2. Whats your greatest blogging achievement to date?
I think for me It’s receiving messages from people thanking me for sharing my story and sharing my advice. Telling me that it has helped them. I feel like I have made a small difference in sharing my story.
Q3. How do You wish Your blog to be in a year’s time?
I am hoping that people are still reading my blog posts, ha. I hope that I have released my book and someone has read it. Fingers crossed.
Thank you so much for taking the time to ask me these questions. Check out their pages above, they are Amazing, talented people.
