Not sure that anyone really cares, but, here I am. Over the last year I’ve really pulled away from my blog. I think if I had a following I would feel really bad about neglecting Glamour Pants but since it’s really juts been me, myself and I… aside from a few lovely viewers here and there I felt it was the right thing to do. I’ve had a really difficult 13 months and my blog has, sadly, been the very last of my priorities.
I was taken into hospital very ill in July of last year with meningitis, the night I was admitted I was extremely poorly and ended up passing out, having an out of body experience and having seizures. One after another the next day and I had a total of around 120 seizures within a 24 hour period. It was extremely stressful and since then I’ve been in and out of appointments trying to figure out what was going on as the seizures never stopped and even ended up in hospital for another 5 days running tests. It really hasn’t helped my other health problems either.
With all of that going on, I sort of lost my way with writing. It’s rather difficult to write and be all happy behind a screen when in real life I’m actually miserable. And nobody wants to be reading a miserable whiny blog post. Especially on a blog that was created for beauty and all things beautiful. But over the last few months I have experienced some tough situations which have really opened my eyes to some things I need to be doing in my life. I need to get back to doing the things that made me once so happy, I need to have a hobby and a purpose. I’ve had to sacrifice so much for my health challenges, and I didn’t want to sacrifice my writing, or my blog.
So here I am, sat writing away working on genuine posts for the first time in twelve months. I’m planning and writing now so I don’t feel so overwhelmed and I’m finding it oddly therapeutic. Writing really is a great way to express yourself, and also to take your mind off of some of the stressful things you have to deal with in real life. It’s almost an escape, somewhere you can be entirely yourself.
I’m currently working on some improvements for Glamour Pants, and am very excited to get started again. Hopefully good things will come from pursuing this blog, after all… a girl needs a hobby. I’m happy to be returning to my happier, healthier self, and to my blog.
