Welcome to Charlie’s blog!
Welcome to my latest project, where I attempt to funnel my thoughts about health, current events, life, people, sex, feminism and everything else into nice little rants disguised as blog posts.
My first post explains my inclination to start writing online (even though I’ve never considered writing a strength – seems like it’s just because I was writing about the wrong thing!).
I have recently been diagnosed with a rare, chronic illness called Common Variable Immunodeficiency so have set up a separate page for posts focusing on health and well-being and tracking my ups and downs living with an immune deficiency!
At the start of this year I made a New Years resolution:
I will not have a boyfriend this year.
And I know how that sounds. A bit commitment-phobe. A bit mid-life crisis. A bit, dare I say, slutty. But it was actually much more than that.
“This is probably going to be a long and less than pleasant thing to read/write and there are probably some people who shouldn’t find out on Facebook (I apologise), but I think it’s something that needs to be spoken about, for myself and for other people’s sake.
Also, trigger warning: Rape.”
