Hiya! I’m a strong believer that you are not your mental illness. I am not my anxiety nor my depression or anything else that is deemed wrong with me. I am none of that, I am simply Sophie. I may have mental health problems but they are not the only thing I have going on about me.
I have a love for history. I love studying how the Ancient Greek and Roman countries lived all those years ago. I adore finding out about their religions and what they believed it. I find it fascinating that their Gods represented every single thing in the world and many people that the Gods were merely just the individuals conscience and own mind. I love studying about Nazi Germany and about how one stupid man did all those terrible things. I don’t condone it AT ALL by the way, I just find it interesting that a country who were once really powerful, allowed him to do such things.
I love music. I have a record player and a rather large collection of records to go along with it. I used to be emo and all the music choices I made when I was thirteen or fourteen, still have a massive impact on me today. I can still jam out to Fall Out Boy or A Day to Remember or All Time Low and have a fucking good time. I go to gigs and have a bloody good time at those too.
I have such a vast fashion taste. One day I can dress like the girl next door and the next day, I can dress like the girl next door goth sister who no one talks about. I can go from wearing band tees and skinny jeans to cute little pink dresses. I just love how different I can be every day. I’m not linear.
I love Doctor Who so much. I’ve been watching it since it came back on our screens in 2005. I know for a fact I watched it before then with my dad growing up. Fun fact: the figures I had on my shelf in the room tour post, I’ve had since I was like 10 years old. I still love that show. It formed a big part of my nerd life.
I think because of what I post about, my mental health mainly, it is a struggle for me to establish the difference between my illnesses and me as a person. I think I’m gonna make a more conscious effort to put a fine line between both of those things in my posts. I don’t want to lose myself in my illness.
