First Introductions

Hello, and welcome to my blog. I'm using my first blog as an intro to my life and I! To pinpoint the blog, expect me to write about life and everything in-between.. this is the aim

I'm Lucy, 24 25! years old from the lovely UK. Also a student social worker... for a while I have been looking for a source of a creative, cathartic outlet, and I am hoping this is it. My inspiration comes from a recent Cosmopolitan article about women living with scars and burns. I found the article heart warming and applauded their courage. It took me back to eight years ago when I was diagnosed with a benign brain tumour. I looked at my life and thought, "I've done well, I want other women to feel like this too". I'm all clear now but the bitter aftertaste still lingers at times. Here are my scars:

Shunt insertion from my brain to stomach to drain cerebral fluid
This scar was operated on twice as my tumour decided to re-grow!!
Tumour was located in my left cerebellum

So, that's me. Hope this wasn't too lengthy, feel free to ask questions!! My illness span a couple of years of recovery so if anyone would like to hear what occurred, let me know and I shall write a post. Have you had a life threatening illness or trauma in life you'd like to share? 

I hope you enjoy reading my blog whilst I enjoy writing and getting to know you all (bear with me while I update the aesthetics and get a professional template!)

Luce x.
