Guess what this section is about? You guessed it right its ＡＬＬ ＡＢＯＵＴ ＭＥ, most of you reading this will already know a lot about me, but for the few who don’t know anything about me, here goes nothing…
My name is Harriet Elizabeth Thorne, I found out just the other day that my mum was going to call me Beatrice not too fond of that name I have to say, but I would still rock it. I would have shortened it to Bea (sorry if anyone gets offended). All you have to do is sneeze wrong these days, and you get slated for it.
I am 22 years old my birthday is the 26th September.
My life is everything I have ever wanted it to be, like a magical fairy tail on a beautiful never-ending story. Of course, there have been times in my life which I do regret, but it’s made me the person I am now.
I wouldn’t change a thing.
I battle with Bipolar, it’s been a long journey, but now with help from treatment and medication, everything is under control. I don’t need to go into detail as my mental health is not what my blog is focused on. Just because I have been given a label, I tend to ignore it. I don’t need attention with things I suffer with.
I also have an eye condition which I am still undergoing treatment. In a short version of the story, my tear ducts are too big for my eyes which mean water drains too quickly. Which now results in having steroids injected into my eyes and all these crazy colour eye drops which run out my nose. Oh, and of course not forgetting I have plugs put into my eyes to stop my eyes getting dry and sore from all the moisture escaping.
Next thing is my Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) but not been diagnosed yet I can’t even have my clothes in my wardrobe if they are not colour coded. It’s crazy how particular one person is with things which are so small. A “normal” person wouldn’t be frustrated with.
Last but not least, ITP Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, the name makes it sound so terrifying I know! It’s simple to understand it’s a disorder that can lead to easy or excessive bruising and bleeding. The bleeding results from unusually low levels of platelets — the cells that help blood clot. When I was 11, I had no platelets which are extremely seriously dangerous, in an average person body the platelet count should be between 150,000 to 450,000 I had none. Which meant if I were to fall at any time I would bleed internally which could lead to death. The hospital didn’t even know what to do with me; they first diagnosed me with Leukemia. But they were completely wrong, as they soon found out what it was I had, I was hooked up to this scary, terrifying machine to have four platelet transfusions. I still suffer with it today, but I now control with taking a high dose of iron tablets. The doctors check up on me with regular blood tests to make sure my platelet count is the correct amount.
But hey enough about my health wise as that stuff just gets annoying and boring.
Besides I feel fantastic now and that all that matters!
My Mum and Dad are my entire world, two wonderful brothers who are a pain in my backsides but I love them to pieces.
My four homes that I have lived in, originally I am from Caterham then moved to South Godstone for ten years, then went back to Caterham… I now live in the gorgeous south west Devon Barnstaple.
Last but not least I have Two gorgeous dogs Rolo and Ralph who will also be mentioned in the future and all the crazy wild things these two dogs get up to which you wouldn’t believe.
I have to dedicate a small part of this to my amazing soulmate and my bestfriend, he has been there through everything with me, we have been together for three years. I love him dearly, and I trust him with everything, he is my knight in shining armour yes it’s soppy, I know! Rhys Botterill, soon to be Mrs Botterill ( Just waiting).
He has supported me with everything I have ever wanted to do; our next fairy tale is the big move to Devon to find our Castle. To set up our own comfortable, cute home to start to build our compact sweet family.
My wonderful Friends
My friends are amazing, they all know who I am talking about. These are people who have been there for me since day one, who can support me when I need help.
To be that shoulder to cry on, who can make me laugh even when crying, who would do anything for me.. just like I would do the same to them and always to have that trust, knowing I can tell them anything and not be judged and most important who understand me fully.
I love you all! I couldn’t leave you out, could I? You’re all so important to me.
Well.. why have I start blogging, it all started when I spoke to this fabulous, confident blogger I got in contact with through my Instagram, she told me all the benefits and how it made her feel so vibrant, she felt like her mind could wander off without being judged and feel completely free! I thought why not give it ago! There is nothing wrong that could happen, as I am doing this for me, not for anything and anyone else.
I can also express everything down on to my computer, things I like things that I
dislike. I feel like a whole new person.
My hobbies where do I start, I paint everything I can get my hands on pink of course. If charity shopping is a hobby that would have to be one!
I am a journal freak; I complete adult colouring books which are amazing for my mental health, puzzles, Reading, sewing.
Since I was young I have always been into sports I played football for many football clubs I gave up my love for the sport two years ago, due to injuries ( ripped Achilles heel and my weakend knees).
I also took Windsurfing up for many years then developed my training into becoming an instructor, which now means I can teach anywhere around the world.
I have a speed boat licence which can also be used around the world, which I love doing.
I also now have my own Avon business which I love doing I have met so many people and made so many friends, I think this is a hobby as I am still going to customers houses and communicating with different people all the time and the most important thing about it is that I enjoy It.
That’s about it for the moment if you have any more questions don’t be afraid to ask.
Put your feet up and have a cuppa!
