I’ve recently been blessed with a lot of time. We always say we don’t have enough of it – how we would love more of it and how it seem to flies. Until recently I didn’t know what to do with the amount I had on my hands. I’ve always been super busy, with two jobs I barely had time to stand still let alone do anything else. In 2011 after performing at Bestival I was taken ill with a brain infection called mengo-encephalitis. I was in hospital for three weeks and after experiencing a suspected mini stroke also, I had to learn how to walk and write again. Ever since things haven’t gone smoothly with hospital visits and tests into what has actually happened to my brain since the infection. I get really bad headaches, dizziness and my right side can get extremely difficult to cope with – it feels like i’m strapped to a lead balloon. This means I have to spend a lot of time in bed and in my house and have a tendency on my good days to want to get everything I possibly can done, which I soon get reminded by my brain isn’t possible. When given so much time you can do one of two things you can sit and let the pain and the rubbish that comes with it consume you or you can do something ace. I’ve always loved post, even when I was little I’d always want to open everyones letters. I know that sometimes people just need a little reminder by someone that they are just amazing and that’s what I want to do with the time that I’ve been given.
If you would like a letter, email me at email@example.com
Please include your address and why you would like one, for example:
“I’m feeling a little glum”
anything really, just why you need a little cheering up or a reminder that actually you are really lovely.
