I am a twenty three year old woman and I grew up in Wollongong. As a young girl I was diagnosed with a rare sleep disorder, Ondine's curse. It caused me to lose my life four times and spend the first three years of my life in hospital.
During my time in hospital I forgot how to talk and was spoiled rotten by the nurses. My mother and father would always find the nurses had bought me a new toy to play with.
I have two older sisters who I absolutely adore. I was bullied in primary school and high school. My parents divorced when I was eleven. I had a mental break down at 14 and my mother pulled me out of school. I continued schooling else where.
In 2009 I moved to Newcastle and continued to live there until 2014. During my time in that city, my depression and anxiety worsened, I became an alcoholic and got into a spiral that I thought I would never get myself out of. In 2014 I had a friend violate me, that was the icing on the cake, my lowest point. I tried a two week program to get myself sober, but it fell short after my grandmother passed away.
Finally my mother bought me home and I have been rebuilding my life ever since. I am currently sober and on the repair. I am eating healthier and exercising. I just acquired my own house near my mother's and sisters. I have a kitten named Dawn and a dog named London. I was vegan for three years. I adore my niece and nephew and my partner Joshua.
Each day is a brand new day and I am hoping this year will be brighter. I am a survivor, through everything, I made it through and I am happy. This is why I am trying to get my work out there. I love writing. It frees me and I love hearing what people think.
I hope I put a smile on your face and make you fascinated in my work.
