Gratitude

Today I am very grateful for technology. Specifically my laptop, the internet, the TV and the DVD player. And Marvel's Agent Carter.

Day 2 of being sick, and I am bored. Bored bored bored. I don't think I got as sick as J - I'm already feeling better than he was at this point but I'm still ill. My stomach is still cramping but not expelling. I have a headache and a temperature but nothing that some panadol won't shift. The worst is that I'm so tired and all my joints hurt.

S basically told me and J to stay in bed. Now, usually this would be a most wonderful suggestion but it's not as fun we we can't have fun! We are however continuing to watch Season 1 of Agent Carter. And I'm futzing around on the internet. Which appears to be quite dangerous as I've managed to sign up for Pinterest and Tumblr. I'm not entirely sure what I need them for but I seem to have them regardless.

I've also been learning about bullet journals which seem quite interesting. I was telling J about them and he kinda just grunted. S, on the other hand, seems to think I need a 'creative outlet' and has been nagging me about that for a while now, so there's a potential trip to Hobbycraft or somewhere when I'm feeling better to buy journalling/scrapbooking supplies.

What are you grateful for today?

Hello!!

Hello everyone!

It felt really wonderful to log on this morning and see that people have added me! That people want to hear what I have to say. Although it's also a little unnerving in a way. Will I live up to being interesting?

I found it strange when writing the 'about me' post that I made to friending communities that the first thing I wrote about myself were my diagnoses. Can you imagine doing that in real life? Meeting someone, shaking their hand and saying "Hi, I'm Lucy. I'm a schizophrenic with ADHD and bipolar disorder!'
They'd look at me... well I was going to say strangely but then a lot of people do that anyway so it wouldn't be much of a difference really

I suppose it's different to actually introducing yourself, though, these posts. It's more a sales pitch in a way, isn't it? And my health is a large part of what make me who I am, so it is interesting that people understand that I have them. I am very much interested in finding out who I am outside of my diagnoses. You'd think by now I'd know who I am but I've always let these labels define me, rather than just... be. For too long I've been "Lucy the Schizo" and I want to find out who "Lucy the Person" is.

And welcome aboard my journey. I'm glad you're here and looking forward to getting to know you as we get to know me!

I am sitting in the room in our house known as 'the library' - it's basically a bedroom full of books, comfortable chairs and a desk. And a CD player. I'm listening to some Mendelssohn as I type this: A Midsummer Night's Dream - Overture if you're interested. I'm also thinking I need to a) cut my nails and b) learn to type. I have no idea where keys are and this is hard work. I don't know what to do with my other 6 fingers or my thumbs!

I've been setting up various accounts online. I now have a Twitter (@lucyshiningone) and a last.fm (lists! alphabetised!). I've heard about a to-do website called Habitica which sounds interesting so I think that might be my next stopping point.

What websites do you use on a regular basis/find useful?
Where can I learn to type?!

Hello!

Hello Internet. I'm Lucy and I haven't really got the faintest idea what I'm actually supposed to be doing here, but I figured the best thing to do would be hit the 'post an entry' button and jump in wiht both feet first, hoping for a good outcome!

Which brings me here. My very first post. How incredibly exciting.

You're probably wondering who the hell I am. Well, as I already said a couple of paragraphs ago (but I'll repeat for the memory-deficient), my name is Lucy. I am a 30-something submissive bisexual polyamorous schizophrenic with ADHD & bipolar who lives in Wales. I love rock music, mythology, board games and shopping!
Yay very mini bio. But those are kind of the basic/important things about me.

I'm pretty verbose so I'm glad this isn't anything like twitter with that pesky 140 character limit. It keeps cutting me off mid-tweet. Very rude of it, don't you think?

So there we go. A first post, a mini introduction and a couple of icons. There's a bunch of likes in my profile too. Now all I need is a layout. I do feel a little like I need some kind of reward for all of this hard work you know!

Croeso!

I'm Lucy, a 30-something woman who is trying to figure out this whole 'life' thing.

I'm bisexual and poly, living in North Wales with my partners J&S. I'm a home maker, love to bake and cook, and am a huge sci-fi fan. I'm also a little obsessed with journals/planners right now.

I haved lived for so long under the shadow of a number of mental health diagnoses, letting them define me rather than just be part of me. For too long I've been "Lucy the Schizo" and I want to find out who 'Lucy' is

Welcome aboard my journey. I'm glad you're here and looking forward to getting to know you as we get to know me!
