    Not proud so to speak, but happy (just didn't know where to put this) all mam wanted for Christmas was that cinnamon diet coke but no where here was selling it (troubles of island life) and couldn't buy it online. I just offered her a bottle of clementine diet coke and she was like 'nah, I just wanted the cinnamon one' little does she know there's 2 bottles coming in the post for her from my lovely friend in England 😁 can't wait to see her face when it comes, it's the little things in life 😂

    Edit : let's all just pray it doesn't explode in the post 😂😂

    I spoke to my manager about the fact I'm not coping well with full days, so she's going to ask head office about reducing my hours for a month or two 😁😁 don't know if it will be possible since I'm on a contract but at least I asked 😊

    Today I actually remembered that the uniform policy for my volunteering does not count when there is a meeting  (I volunteer at my gymnastics club along with about 20 other young people- we all do different days and times and we all have to wear a specific blue t-shirt with the club logo when volunteering due to safeguarding reasons.)
    Even if you're little you can do a lot. You musn't let a little thing like little stop you. If you sit around and let them get on top you might as well be saying you think that it's okay, and that's not right. And if it's not right you have to put it right.

    Spoke to a jewellery company about them making a mental health awareness charm for their bracelets and the idea was passed on to the design department and hopefully I can help with the creation!

    A year ago today I posted about my trauma for the first time on social media. The support i  received was incredible, the same this year. One comment still rings true 'they may have tried to break me but I will show them how enormously they failed.' and that's what I'm doing. I may still struggle with nightmares and flashbacks and voices but the biggest thing I can do right now is to just live. This time last year I had 3 hospital admissions in 3 weeks, now I am over 3 months admission free, yes I still have bad days, and horrendous days, but I refuse to let them take anymore of my life from me. #sexualabuseandsexualviolenceawarenessweek
