What I learnt in 2017

For the past 6 months I’ve been trying to get back into blogging. From lack of technology (broken MacBook) to lack of motivation and time, I could not for the life of me, convince myself to type anything worthwhile. Seeing as 2017 is coming to an end and my 2 year blog birthday is coming…

How to Create Positive Memories #AD

Scent Triggers This year I underwent some CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) for PTSD. I learnt so much.

I WAS SEXUALLY ASSULTED
