About Me and My Blog

‘Do you not know I am a woman? When I think, I must speak.’ (Rosalind, As You Like It, Shakespeare)

I have an artificial hip made of plastic and ceramic. I also have chronic pain, Raynaurds, OCD, autism and some anxiety and depression issues. However I have been told that my mental and physical problems are all considered mild or border line and not that serious. However I find when you combine them together frankly they make me a bit of a mess. I cross over into so many boxes the education system, medical professionals and work advisers people never knew where to place me. Through this blog I am interested in exploring how being border line disabled and special needs affects people. Sometimes I am very glad I can hide my issues and am not worse, but at times I wonder if admitting to them and playing them up would not help me to get on in life.

I was on long-term job seekers allowance benefit for over two years till recently. Now I am on Employment Support Allowance due to my mental health issues. I also want to explore how being on benefits long-term can effect things. I will also write about other issues that effect me and make an impact on my life and ocassionsly write something else a bit random.

This blog is my opinion of things, not always actuate fact. I do try and research things and I will always try to show my sources. Some posts will be more about facts and figures and some will be more opinion based.
