Today, I bleed. In the space of a year, everything has changed.
I can’t wait to read your answers, I hope they are uplifting and spread positivity.
I got to thinking about that and realised the poem with the experience is about enigma.
I felt emotionally exhausted and wanted the opportunity to transfer this emotional struggle into a physical challenge that I could overcome, learn and develop from.
This month we would like to do As Told By You a little bit differently. We would like you to focus on a theme. This month’s theme is “The Many Faces of Grief”. This can include; facets of grief that you have experienced that you believe are overlooked in the discourse surrounding grief. What is an unconventional part of grief for you?
For me, the first of the month is an opportunity where I can reflect and recollect before I move into the new month. I reflect on what I enjoyed from the last month, and what I want to happen in the next month.
October was quite hard for me, and I am proud to have moved through it peacefully. Now, the new month is about taking a deep breath and focussing on where I want to be next.
In case you missed anything from October…

It makes me feel bad that my family have had to look after me so much. I hate being a burden, boring and a frustration. I hate that they had to wake up in the night to help me with medicines or when I was throwing up.
