I need a bit of support in getting me through a tough patch in my life.
Currently I'm unable to commit to work due to ongoing physical conditions and I've been refused social benefits unless I'm actively seeking work, so I find myself in a vicious circle. I've turned to art in a bid to raise funds to help pay for daily living expenses and to give me the time I need to heal my body and mind ~ getting my life back on track, back to activity and back to being self sufficient and self reliant. I now live with my son but I want to relieve him of my financial expenses and to stop being reliant upon him for all my needs ~ although I'm fortunate, grateful and blessed for this, it's not a good feeling as it's another thing on top of everything else.
I've had my fair share of 'problems' in the past and I now have current 'problems' that I'm dealing with.
I was raised in a negative loveless environment by a narcissistic father and a mother who was addicted to prescribed medication and was emotionally detached and cold. It wasn't a great start and I believe this contributed to my addictions of alcohol, drug and eating disorders. I also suffer from social anxiety and depression. In the last 3 years my health has declined and I'm now dealing with sciatica, scoliosis, spondylosis, leaky gut, pernicious anemia, a large ovarian dermoid cyst and all the secondary conditions that come with these conditions. I've gone from cycling, running, kick boxing, hill walking, dog walking, gym sessions to chronic pain, trapped nerves, sore, cracking and achy bones, digestive problems, muscle wastage and more. I try to remain positive: and practice positivity, but I do sometimes find it difficult with everything coming at once as I feel bombarded and become overwhelmed. Hopefully this 'hiccup' will be short lived <3
