I haven’t blogged in forever. It wasn’t that I didn’t have anything to say, it’s just that I had so much to say that I didn’t know where to start. But I recently wrote a short paragraph for a competition, called Life, and realised how much I missed writing. I’ve never published my blogs, I’ve always kept them just for myself, but I think it’s time to start going public. It might be rubbish, no one might read it, but I’ll enjoy doing it. 

I called the blog Untangling the Yarn for a few reasons. I love crochet, it’s my creative outlet, and untangling a mess of yarn is SO therapeutic. But also I have lived with anxiety, depression and stress since my teens, and when I’m feeling really poorly with it it feels like my head is a ball of tangled yarn. Writing helps me through this. Finally, I have a number of chronic illnesses, which all interlink and aggravate each other, I have severe Crohn’s disease (an inflammatory bowel disease), Ankylosing Spondylitis (an inflammatory arthritis), asthma, and much more. They all tangle together setting each other off, and treatments for one will inflame another! 

So that’s a little bit about the blog, it’ll be a big mix of other things things too

Thanks for checking it out
