This blog is about my life; I'm a single mother of 2 children and live in London; I have had lifelong issues with anxiety and depression although I do declare myself 'cured' from chronic anxiety which I suffered from for years. My depression is also in remission pretty much most of the time. I had a challenging childhood and I am sharing about this on my blog and my life and challenges I face in general. Women, especially later in life, become invisible. To some degree I enjoy this invisibility but I am still an intelligent woman with something to say and I have resented my position in life and the consequences of it on numerous occasions. I want to help to make life better for girls if I can do that at all by writing about my life - and not be silent.
