I love animals and nature, especially forests:-) I care very deeply about people and will always try to help if I can. I'm finding things very hard right now. My Mum was diagnosed with breast cancer & also has rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis. She had the mastectomy on the 4th of January.
The cancer had spread to the lymph nodes. She had radiotherapy and is now out of hospital and being monitored. My Dads prostate cancer is advanced and all that can be done now is to try to manage the pain. He had both radiotherapy and chemo but neither treatment worked for him.
I spend a lot of my time on my artwork, especially of late as with the way things have been its a means of escape for me. I love writing too and have an unfinished story which has been lying around for years.
I've always been incredibly shy but especially with my family situation things escalated to the extent I couldn't deal with anything or seeing anyone. Things got so bad I just couldn't cope anymore and saw my doctor. I was put on antidepressants and have seen a counsellor.
I have social anxiety and find it very difficult being around people. In the past people have often had the opinion that I'm snobbish. I feel quite vulnerable writing about this but I'm tired of having to pretend and just want to be honest.
