Hey there!

I’m in a strange place in my life. I have just finished my final exams of a 3 year degree in History and Philosophy. I am now searching for jobs and internships and just trying to find my place in the world. It’s difficult, it’s weird to be out of academia for the first time in so many years. I feel a huge sense of achievement but also, fear. What is it even like to be a real adult in the real world? How do I do this?

On top of this, I am still in recovery from an eating disorder. That’s a battle every single day! I developed an eating disorder when I was about 14. I’ve been in recovery for 3 years now and it hasn’t got any easier. Depression and anxiety are also ongoing problems for me which I’m still trying to find ways of coping with. I am on medication but not in therapy at the moment. All of this and trying to figure out what I want to do with my life makes things very difficult!

I guess this blog will be a bunch of posts about how I’m dealing with my mental health problems, how I manage to fit into adult life and my thoughts on feminism and music. Those are two things which I’m hugely passionate about and keep me sane when my head is driving me absolutely crazy. So here it goes, my journey into adult life and recovery…
