About Me

Hi, I’m Meg. I have what I call a ‘tangled brain’ – it lies to me and engages me in self-destructive behaviour.
I’ve decided to stop letting my struggles call the shots and start exploring what it means to ‘live my best life’. This blog is where I talk about my journey with my mind, and my experiences.

Come with me as I navigate healing from trauma, grief, my borderline personality disorder, alcoholism and anxiety.

I’m a feminist.
I’m queer.
I’m brutally honest.
I’m learning.
