Hello internet, it's good to see you again.

It's been a stressful month or so - take moving house, combine it with computer problems and a short stay in hospital and oh it's nice to be sitting down on my couch, a cat next to me and just relaxing.

I'm doing ok but I don't want to talk about it.

New house is starting to feel like home. It's still new and a little weird and as strange as it sounds, it doesn't smell the same. Although in all fairness, I haven't really spent much time here but I'm hoping over the next week I'll start to settle in.

J's been having great fun with some DIY projects and he's got quite the list of jobs he wants to get accomplished, big manchild with a toolbox that he is! We've also got some decorating to finish off so it's going to be busy couple of week especially with S starting her new job this month but it's also all very exciting and I'm looking forward to it.

I've been trying to watch NCIS with J this morning but it's not be overly successful. I've been having some auditory issues, not hearing the bitch who attacks me or the kid who wants to play, more just white noise buzzing. and that makes it really difficult to concentrate on both the TV and on what J's been saying to me. J's confirmed that he can't hear it so it's most likely in my head. I'm actually hopping it's just a hallucination and not a physical problem with my ears. It's not constant though so I guess it's psychological. It's fucking annoying though!

Could it be interesting to write a post about my auditory hallucinations?

It's a shame because I've been enjoying NCIS. It's our first time watching it and we saw like 5 episodes last week. I'm starting to see why S loves these 'heres a dead body lets find out what happened to it' shows.
Gibbs. He's a bit of a bastard, isn't he? Very strange way of showing he cares and I bet he's got some big tragedy he's hiding that's stopping him from letting people in. He's also utterly gorgeous
Tony. Can we say favourite character? He's so cute and funny and yet really good at what he does and I want to do all kinds of filthy things to/with him!
Kate. I don't like her at all. She's so stuck up and I hate how she treats Tony.
Ducky. Reminds me of my dad, the way he's always got these stories and random facts about everything.
Abby. I'm not quite sure what I make of Abby. She's very unique isn't she? J says her exuberance and love reminds him of me <3

Instead of watching NCIS 1x06 I did some really geeky online things. I normally log all the TV and movies that I watch using Trakt and Letterboxd but I've been really slack at keeping up with it the last month or so. J's been listing still and I wrote most things down in my bujo so I've brought them up to date as much as I could.

Is it weird that I still refer to J as... well... J, considering I know some of you guys read his DW? (he's [personal profile] jackjanderson for anyone who doesn't know) so it's not like you don't know he's called Jack. And he uses Sam's name when he talks about her in his posts but I still refer to her as S here.
I guess I've just got used to using J&S when I write about them because I've been doing it for so long.

J and I have both lost weight over the last few months.

I've been actively trying for the last year and have lost 45lb, hit my target and am very very proud of myself. I've been making an effort to eat heathier, drink more water, only eat when I'm hungry, get exercise regularly.

J, the little shit, hasn't been trying and has unintentionally lost 30lb since Christmas. Which isn't fair but I'm very proud of him and damn he looks good right now. That man is sexy, you know?

To reward us, S took us both shopping. I was very happy about this. I love shopping for clothes and I've got some new dresses, some new jeans, some new tops, new underwear, had my hair done. It's like I've spring cleaned myself!

J... was a lot less happy about it. Honestly, the way he was going on you'd think we were torturing him or something. He actually ended up really pissing S off and oh boy, he got into trouble. Let's just say he got intimately acquainted with the cane this afternoon and I'm not sure he's gonna be sitting down anytime soon. He's also on a sex and orgasm ban for the rest of the month. I feel a bit bad for him but really he brought it on himself.

Crazy Month

Feb. 5th, 2017 06:41 am
lucymorningstar: (#teamsteve)
It's been an absolutely crazy couple of weeks. I don't know where the time has gone, I feel like it's completely run away with me and I've achieved nothing. I've not made it online or anything! It's also been manic and stressful and J and I have been fighting and we both got punished a lot and not in the really fun way either :(

See, J retired just before Christmas and it was all fun over the break. But then January and reality and normal kicked in and he didn't know what to do with himself. He's not used to being home and having nothing to do and he got bored - and even more bored once S had gone back to school. It was fun to start with, having J around all the time and, yes, there was a lot of sex :)

But then it stopped being so fun. Chores and errands weren't getting done. S would get mad at both of us. Then because my routine was interrupted, I wasn't taking my medications and got sick and there was yelling and guilt and it all really wasn't fun. I got lectured on routines and distractions and the importance of my health, and J did too. And he was told that he has to let me do my jobs first and if he wants to help he has to ask because my routine is important. He was also told to find something to do, to find a new hobby.

That was about 10 days ago. We now both have behaviour and chore charts and we have to report to S each day about what we did. We get either daily punishment or reward as necessary. It's working though. I'm recovering again, I've got my routine back and I'm happier. Still a little insomnia but it's getting better. And the house is back to normal standards. Which makes S happier. J's been letting me get on with my work, or helping out in little ways but he mostly reads or watches TV while I'm working. And he's got a new hobby - he's discovered the internet, got himself a laptop and even has a blog

Hopefully this new equilibrium will continue!

I was thinking about New Years Resolutions and what I want to achieve, my goals for 2017.

I definitely want to continue working on my English, Maths and Science. I want to continue eating healthily and exercising. I want to retain my current mental health levels.
These are all things that have been working well for me in 2016

I heard about a website called Day Zero Project which says it's an an online community for people who love creating lists, setting challenges, and making positive changes in their lives. and it's most famous for being the home of the 101 Things In 1001 Days challenge... which is something I know I cannot commit to.

But they have a challenge called '7 Things x 2017' which is taglined as An alternative to boring New Years' resolutions. A list of seven prompts to get you thinking about what you want to achieve in 2017. And based on these prompts, I've set myself the below goals
Learn how to speak German
Start drinking more water
Stop eating when I'm not hungry
Take a vacation to somewhere new
Find happiness in the small things
Try rock climbing
Be more patient with myself

It would appear that every post I've made in the last month I've managed to set as keeping private rather than public/showing everyone. I am such an idiot. I'm going to go through them and change the visibility so I'm sorry if I end up flooding your flists!

In other news, it's Saturday, it's raining and I've got an upset stomach. S is feeling queasy too so we don't know if it's a bug or something we ate last night. J's gone and done grocery shopping, got us both some ginger tea and now we're curled up watching the new Lethal Weapon tv show. We're about 4 or 5 episodes behind but it's a fun show so I enjoy a good mini marathon
lucymorningstar: (Default)
In my group session last night, we were talking about how with all the crap that goes on - in our brains, in our lives, in the world around us and in the world in general - and how it's really easy to get lost in the negativity and how we get caught in a dark feedback cycle which really isn't very easy to break. And we talked about how important it is to look after ourselves, to take the time to do things for us, to do the things we like, the things we enjoy, the things that make us feel better. How self-care is good for us.

Being me, I went and made a Self Care spread in my journal, listing out some of the things I can do for myself when I start to feel stressed and overwhelmed. My top items are:

  • go for a walk

  • play with the dog and/or cats

  • do some yoga

  • take a nap

  • dance

  • take a bath

  • have a massage

  • buy fresh flowers

  • listen to some music

  • bake


  • What do you do for yourself to help combat stress? What are your favourite self-care routines?

I'm pleased to report my ankle is healed and I'm back on my feet. I've spent a lot of time cuddled up with the cats and watching some of the new TV shows that have started this season. There's quite a few really good ones that have got me all excited! :)

I think Frequency, Lethal Weapon and The Exorcist are among my favourites. And, as much as I really hate to admit it? I'm really enjoying the new MacGyver. S wanted to watch it to see how they weave the science and engineering into the storyline and I ended up watching it and... yeah, it's ok. That kid is no Richard Dean Anderson and it's not my MacyGyver but it's watchable.

But that's not what I opened up this 'post an entry' to talk about. It was either going to start with that or planwithme videos on Youtube because I've also been spending a lot of time playing catchup on those. They're so relaxing. It's not my style of planning, I tried it and it doesn't work for me. I'm definitely sticking with my bujo but there's something calming and relaxing and hynotic about watching people plan their weeks out and putting down stickers. I don't know how or why but it is!

I'm going as off topic as a MacGyver voiceover here - stop me if I start telling tales about my grandather! LOL

I actually wanted to talk about something I don't understand. Clowns. Or, why people are scared of them. I don't get it. I don't get it at all. It's just a guy in some face paint, a wig, some colourful clothing and big shoes. They're supposed to be funny - has no-one ever been to a circus and watched their routines? Or been squirted in the face with water from a plastic flower?
It's all just basic slapstick comedy

Maybe it's the fact my brain is wired differently from 'normal' but I really don't associate them with fear but with laughter. I get that there's scary clowns in horror movies but... those aren't real. They're stories. They're fictional.

And I thought I was the one with the tenuous grip on reality...

Self Care

Oct. 9th, 2016 03:02 pm

I have an ouchie. I've no idea how I've done it* but I've sprained my ankle - not badly just enough that it's aching and I can't put enough weight on it. Spent a couple of hours in A&E this morning, got it x-rayed to check it wasn't broken. They've strapped it up, given me some painkillers and instructed me to rest it for a few days.

Which is how I'm sitting on the couch with my foot up on a stool. S made us a roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings which was delicious. And now we're all curled up on the couch, with mugs of tea, under nice warm blankets with purring cats (and Odin flopped down over J's feet) and we're trying out some of the new season tv shows.

Some are hits, some are misses but it's fun and it's one of my favourite ways to spend time. Of course, S got all cranky with some of the science of time travel in Timeless. Although we do all agree that Hayley Atwell has amazing ass and tits in Conviction.

So yes, despite my ankle hurting, I'm focusing on the positive. I'm warm, I'm comfy, I'm snuggled up under blankets with the people I love, I have apple and cinnamon tea and I'm spending an afternoon watching TV... what's not to enjoy about that?

* Actually, I know exactly what I've done to it. J's got himself all interested in predicament bondage...and this is not a complaint because that is just fun! But when we were playing this morning, I wobbled a little too much and went over on my ankle. Oops!

Good life

Oct. 8th, 2016 11:16 am
lucymorningstar: (Harry)
It's not something you often see people saying online but things are really good right. I'm really content, really happy and yeah, things are good.

My health is about as stable as it gets - good combination of medication and therapy and my support group.

S is home from her research position in Manchester. She's still flying high from it but she's also really enjoying being back to teaching. She loves doing both and J and I love seeing her so happy and energised. She has this... glow, this aura around her and it's infectious. I hope it's inspiring her students to see how excited someone can get.

We spent a few weeks reconnecting as a family, just enjoying spending time together - doing stuff and... not doing stuff and simply being together. We really do work in sync so much better when the three of us are togther - it just... works. We're definitely all happier.

Now, things are back to normal and the usual routines are back in place and everything is just wonderful :)
lucymorningstar: (Lucifer Beach Wings)
I have the best boyfriend* ever!

J popped home on his lunchbreak today - he'd bought me a papercraft magazine he'd seen, and because it came with some stamps, he also got me an acrylic block and a couple of ink pads. Add that to the watercolour paints and brushes that I ordered came today and I'm looking forward to seeing what I come up with. I'm not particularly artistic or creative but I think it'll be fun to play.

Healthwise I'm starting to feel better. My fever has dropped and I'm keeping down dry toast and water. I'm mostly just completely exhausted. Curled up on the couch with my S watching cheesy sci-fi DVDs, although I keep falling asleep. Oops.



*Although somehow calling J my 'boyfriend' makes me feel like we're teenagers. I don't like 'other half' or 'partner'... I really need to find a better term, although 'My J' is how I think of him.
lucymorningstar: (Pencil Circle)
S dragged J & I to a beginner pilates class this morning and can I just say that I am still hurting. Clearly I do have core muscles because they are absolutely killing me. I would like to collapse down dead and die!

Although, I swear at one point J - and possibly me - was going to get kicked out for a combination of swearing and laughing. He'd be trying to do the routine and swearing away, which would start me laughing, then he'd start laughing... Or then I'd be swearing cos she wanted my body to do what now? So J'd start laughing at me. We're as bad as kids at times.
If the exercises hadn't killed us, S pretty much would have. Luckily, she could see the funny side of it and, like me, J's smile leaves her knees weak.
S enjoyed the exercise part of the class so that's important at least. She wants to continue going but I'm not sure how welcome me and J will be next week.

Mind you, I would like to sit down with that perky titted instructor and discuss with her the meaning of the word 'beginner'. Because that class? Did NOT feel very beginning. Trust me.

Hi there

Sorry for the long absence there, internet. Long story involving mental health, hallucinations, psychotic episodes. Stress-related, most likely related to J's mum passing and everything around it. Not very exciting, not very fun. But I'm starting to feel a lot better - ok, so I'm still curled up in bed because the thought of doing stuff is Too Much - but I'm actully more aware and awkae and online and how mny emails do I have?
lucymorningstar: (Coulson)
Things are getting back to normal around here, finally! J went back to work today. S is being incredibly stubborn and trying not to let this gastroenteritis get her down, but J was firm with her and told her to stay home, at least for today, and rest.

S and I did to to the supermarket today to get the groceries no-one got at the weekend and just that was enough to send her back to bed for a nap, so at least we know J was right. She's sort of half-working and half-resting.

I've been able to get back on with as normal as my life gets around here, which makes me feel better. Following my lists and knowing what I'm doing is always a good thing.

Speaking of lists, a couple of days ago I posted about some belated goals that I'd put together for the year, a little list that looks like:
1) Keep taking my medication regime and tracking my moods and attention etc
2) Keep using to-do lists and alarms to focus myself on my task at hand
3) Lose approximately 30lb by the end of 2016
4) Start studying my GCSEs - ideally English and Maths as well as Physics
5) Learn to type

Well, inspired by Kara @ www.bohoberry.com's very popular style bullet journal, I've decided to something a little similar myself. Breaking the big goals down into steps that make them seem less daunting.

4 BIG GOALS



  1. RETAIN CURRENT MENTAL HEALTH LEVELS

  2. LOSE 30 LB

  3. TAKE GCSES IN ENGLISH, MATHS AND SCIENCE - AT MINIMUM

  4. LEARN TO TYPE


ACTION STEPS FOR APRIL



  • RETAIN CURRENT MENTAL HEALTH LEVELS

    1. Keep taking medications


      • Fill pill older on Sunday evenings

      • Alarms set on phone when medications are due

      • Including medications on daily to-do lists and Habitica


    2. Using to-do lists and Habitica for focus

    3. Attending therapy and group sessions

    4. Weekly reward for all medications taken -need to discuss/set with J&S




  • LOSE 30LB

    1. Cut out excessive unhealthy snacks - replace chocolate/crisps with carrot sticks/rice cakes

    2. Keeping a daily food log

    3. Investigate eating programs such as Whole30

    4. Weekly weight loss reward -need to discuss/set with J&S




  • TAKE GCSES

    1. Continue daily maths missions on Khan Academy

    2. Pull together a list of revision guides, workbooks and stationery needed, along with price

    3. Discuss turning 2nd floor storage room into a small study room - price of desk, cupboards etc

    4. Weekly reward -need to discuss/set with J&S




  • LEARN TO TYPE

    1. General use of computer, familiarising myself with keyboard layout

    2. Try a couple of diffrent online 'courses' to find a good fit

    3. Weekly reward - what parameters? -need to discuss/set with J&S



Tonight, depending on how J feels, S wants us to all sit down and work on rewards. And whether or not I should be disciplined for failing in the tasks - since these are all mine, not set by them - and what the parameters etc would be.

I'm planning on starting an actual physical bullet journal too, but because we were all sick, S didn't take me to Hobbycraft at the weekend to buy supplies. Perhaps that will be my reward this weekend for doing my maths everyday?

I'm feeling quite positive about most of these. A little nervous at the idea of actually prepping to do exams, but that's quite a way ahead in the future still. I'm just trying to get used to the idea. Although hopefully if I continue to enjoy the maths the way I am with Khan, and find equally enjoyable/working methods for other subjects then I think I'll be fine!

S is quite firm that none of these interfere with my existing duties/roles as they were. I've been fitting in the Khan Academy quite easily though over the last couple of weeks, and there's been no complaints about housework so I think I'm going to succeed quite nicely! :)

Keeping a food log will begin properly next week. This week, because we've all been so ill, is going to consist of a lot of pretty bland food - the old BRAT diet: bananas, rice, applesauce, toast. Simple proteins like egg and chicken. Crackers. Then next week, paying proper attention to calories and carbs etc.

I can do this!

Gratitude

Apr. 9th, 2016 02:01 pm
lucymorningstar: (Elephant)
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?
lucymorningstar: (McKay)
And so it came to pass that I too have caught the same virus that J has. I've now got an upset stomach and a high fever, and J has slightly lesser high fever, no voice and aching joints. That leads to us both being curled up in bed - him continuing to be miserable, and me wanting to get on and do my maths.

That Khan Academy is actually really fun. And I've discovered that I don't actually know many of my shapes - octagons and hexagons and rhombuses... WTF? I don't recall ever having learned them, or needed them, but now I am. According to my stats, I've completed 81% of the 'Early Maths' with 74 skills mastered, 2 skills at level two, 1 skill at level one, 5 skills practiced and 13 skills not started.
In total, of all the 'world of math' on the site, I have completed 6% with 1093 skills not started.

I don't think I have much ability to brain today, plus the whole running to the loo thing. so I'm going to stay here, warm and cuddled up with my J, drinking Pink Lemonade Lucozade and randomly craving bacon, and J's waving the Agent Carter season 1 DVD at me... guess that's the rest of the day sorted!
No complaints here, Hayley Atwell is stunning.

I really need an Agent Carter icon... (And, at some point, to figure out where to find a new layout and how to use it!)

Saturdays have always been me and J's day together. (Thursday is my day with S, she has no classes that day). We started off going grocery shopping, probably my least favourite chore and I could never do it alone. It stresses me out and is the time my psychosis is likely to trigger, and I struggle telling what's real and what isn't. I've been known to walk around talking to imaginary people and thinking I'm picking up one thing when it's completely different.

Although going around a supermaket with J is somewhat akin to going with a child "That's not on the list, J", or "S won't be happy if you bring that home." But he has fun and he has the cutest smile, still makes me weak to the knees.

We came home with just enough extras to make S roll her eyes and swat J on the ass heh. Not me, since I'm his responsibility when we're alone. But we did manage to bring home everything that was on the list. Why she doesn't just do it herself when she's so particular about it, I don't know!
Probably because she'd kill J in the middle of an aisle or something ;)

J, old man that he is, decided he needed an afternoon nap. He also decided that he needed me to nap with him. Safe to say there was a lot more kissing and cuddling and fucking than there was actual napping, but laying half asleep and thoroughly orgasmic in his arms is definitely a favourite place to be. Even if S busted us eating chocolate. I mentioned yesterday that S told me I was going on a diet. Well, J and I managed to bring home half the store's worth of half-price Easter chocolate. And part of the cuddling involved an Easter egg being eaten. She just stood there, leaning against the door frame, arms crossed and trying to decide if she was annoyed or amused.

I'm not the only one who's being denied tasty treats now. J is sulking. It's cute. Ever seen a 63 year old guy sulking because his chocolate was taken away from him?
At least he won't get enforced exercise because of his age and the fact he has bad knees! S is a big believer in punishment fitting the crime.

Although, while we were 'napping', S has installed a bunch of updates on my laptop and set it up to work with the printer through the wireless network. She's a bit of a computer nerd is my S! Which is a good job since I'm pretty clueless and J is probably more likely to throw it out of the window!

I've found a promising looking typing teaching website so I'll be looking at that tomorrow. See if I can get more than just my index fingers in on the action. I have no idea how long it's supposed to take to learn though, but there's 15 lessons, so probably a couple of weeks.

Other than that, it's been a pretty standard Saturday around here. Sheets and bedding changed, laundered and put away. Everywhere's clean and tidy and it's time for our usual weekend family movie night. S is being evil and making herself some popcorn in the microwave, and I know me and J won't be allowed any. It looks like J's choosing Rock Of Ages so that should be fun.

Hope you're all having a good Saturday xxx
lucymorningstar: (Elephant)
I spent a fair bit of this morning in the doghouse. Figuratively, not literally. When cooking dinner last night, I accidentally lightly burnt the rice. S was very unamused to say the least. I'm not even sure J actually noticed, he just inhaled the food like always. But S is very much a stickler for details and was very disappointed in me. And I was basically sent to dinner without dessert and on my own.

This morning there was a small lecture on paying more attention to what I'm doing. S knows I'm trying though, that it was an accident so nothing more than a telling off and a light spanking. It felt worse knowing I'd let her down more than anything.

J bought fish and chips home with him tonight so no cooking for me to ruin. I noticed S frowning at me some and asked her what was wrong. She commented that I'd put weight on, and as much as I hate to admit it, she's right. Not a lot, just enough that it's noticeable. This means as of Monday I'm starting a new diet and exercise routine. I have to keep a food and exercise diary and I'm aiming to have lost 8lb by the beginning of May.
Wish me luck?

I'd also really like to properly study some physics. I left school with no qualifications so I'm thinking about actually taking my GCSE physics since I'm getting interested in it through watching science-fiction. S&J have ordered me some textbooks off Amazon, they should come next week. I'm looking forward to settling down with that.

I also signed up for a penpal club and am waiting to get 'paired' with my first penpal. It's very exciting, actually.

J says he's very proud of me right now, how he can tell the medications I'm on are working because I'm actually wanting to do things for me, and finding things I'm interested in. He and S both think its cute too that I'm doing this whole online thing and are encouraging me to keep with it and hoping this self-discovery thing works. He even suggested that maybe I could list out my hopes and dreams and plans for the rest of the year - show them it and we'll work on them together.

I done that on paper but thought I'd share them here too:

1) Keep taking my medication regime and tracking my moods and attention etc
2) Keep using to-do lists and alarms to focus myself on my task at hand
3) Lose approximately 30lb by the end of 2016
4) Start studying my GCSEs - ideally English and Maths as well as Physics
5) Learn to type

Maybe April is a little late in the year to be setting resolutions but I guess anytime you're ready is the right time.

What hopes/dreams/plans/goals, if any, have you set yourself for this year? And what are you doing to achieve them?<b?

Hello!!

Mar. 31st, 2016 03:21 pm
lucymorningstar: (Lucy aka me)
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?!

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
