There are so many topics I’d like to cover in this blog and I really hope I’ll find the time to do it. Luckily, I don’t have a writer’s block at the moment. I have the exact opposite, actually: I just open my laptop and start typing. Whatever it is — emails, social media stuff, work, blog posts, it just happens very naturally. It doesn’t feel as challenging as it did a while ago.
I’m starting to wonder if this is because of my new meds that are supposed to put my brains in a whole new order… but I’m thinking it’s too early to tell. You see, I was diagnosed to have ADHD in December and I’ve just started treating it with meds a couple of weeks ago. It’s super strange to get diagnosed with something that is (commonly & often mistakenly) considered as a children’s disorder. Something that’s more common in boys than girls, no less. But here we are.
I’m a 41-year-old woman with an ADHD diagnose.
So, that actually covers one of the many topics I’m going to cover in the future. I’ve always tried my very best to be open about my mental health and recurring depression, even in those dark moments when I worry about it affecting my chances of getting a job, getting included in fun things, or finding a partner, whatever. Because I’m very much one of those people who thinks the stigma around mental health issues needs to be erased. It shouldn’t be any different from having a broken leg, the flu or a migraine. It should be treated as what it is: illness. Something that’s normal, can happen to anyone at any point of their lives and something that can be treated just as the next thing.
But those arent’t the happiest of topics. They’re important, yes, but they’re not fun. What’s fun is all the creative stuff I do for living and as a hobby: photography, arts, illustrations, graphic design and blogging, which are definitely going into the list of “things I want to write about”.
And then there’s Travel, of course. I travel a lot, mostly with my bff Satu & our fantastic, adventurous filming location travel blog Fangirl Quest. My precious dog Einari also deserves some blog space every now and then. And I can’t forget about movies & TV. There’s going to be some of that, too.
I’m thinking that about covers it.
Oh, but an important note: I’m really hoping this blog becomes a safe place to talk about any of the above things for myself, but also for others. So I’m leaving the comment field open for anonymous visitors too. I’ll answer any questions you may have, I’ll help you out with anything I can. I promise.
I don’t want to be shouting into the void – I’d like there to be some echo back.
