Hi, my name is Kate and I live in Manchester in the UK. I am currently (frustratingly) living at home after completely depleting all my money at uni. I started to make some of that money back due to a job in a call centre. Call centre jobs are of course notoriously stressful and after six months I had to leave.
This was because I had begun to have quite extreme anxiety and panic attacks. At first I was naive enough to believe that this was due to my horribly stressful job, and I believed that all i needed was a couple of weeks away from that environment and the anxiety would just go away and I would be fine.
However, as I started seeing my therapist I realised that the anxiety had always been there, and the job had just brought it to the surface. I had always been on the edge of the cliff, the job had just pushed me over.
Now, thanks to my amazing therapist and my wonderful boyfriend, I am beginning to make huge changes in my life. And I don’t mean changes like cutting my hair, getting a new job, moving to a different city. I mean changes in the way I live my life from day to day, changes in the way I think. Changes I know will transform my life in the long run.
And, finally, I get to this blog. I realised that I had so many ideas stuck in my head, I needed to get them out onto paper and give my mind a break. I also want to let myself be creative – something I have always denied myself in the past. So, this blog is a huge part of my changing my life. This is why I chose the name Rebuild. I feel like I’m rebuilding my life from the bottom up and I can’t wait to see how it turns out. But what I know for certain that it will be better than the way it was before.
Thank you if you actually read through all of this, I didn’t realise it would become so long! I welcome any sort of comments and hope you all enjoy my blog.
