Hi everyone, happy weekend!
When I posted about the dogs and their impact on my life at the beginning of the week, I didn't expect to get the overwhelmingly positive response that I got. This blog is still just a new, little space, with just a few followers, and I really didn't expect so many people to email or tweet me, expressing their own feelings and telling their own stories. It was so lovely, and I just wanted to say a little thank you to everyone who took the time to leave a comment or message me privately.
It's quite daunting to share a story so personal, generally I'm not a person who shouts from the rooftops about mental illness... in fact, until very recently I denied the existence of my depression altogether. It's only once you start to emerge from the other side, that you realise the true gravity of the situation. It felt almost frivolous to go back to cute dog photos and reviews after that, so I took a few days off from Blogmas to gather my thoughts... if you follow my youtube channel, you'll probably have noticed that I took a few days off from Vlogmas, too. I'm back now though, and I have cute dog photos galore! Haha.
I hope you're all well, and that you're enjoying the festive period! I'm off work for two weeks now (perks of working in a school!) so I'm hoping to go back to blogging every other day, at least.
