Hi! my name is Kirsty Marie and I’m a 22 year old ordinary girl from Birmingham.
Once upon a time I’d imagined myself to write a blog, but never did. So here I am biting the bullet and doing just that! You may ask what is the create your own sunshine blog about? well here goes…
In 2007 my life began to take a turn for the worst as my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, being a child I never really understood what was going on and this affected me in ways I wasn’t aware of yet. later on in my life I was diagnosed with depression, anxiety and body dysmorphic disorder, on top of this I began to face obstacles that I never thought id have to, which naturally, worsened my depression and anxiety.
Dealing with depression and anxiety every single day up to the age of seventeen can become extremely tiring, so at what point does it stop? well truthfully I don’t think it ever just stops and it hasn’t for me yet but I know I have to take back control.
One boring evening I had a light bulb moment, to create a blog! So here I am in the hopes to share my experiences and to take back control of my life whilst creating my own sunshine.
