My name is Emily.

I live on the south coast, a mile from the sea with my husband and 3 small boys. Amongst the busyness of life running a home and raising boys I like to write.  I have lived with varying levels of anxiety my whole life, and have been diagnosed with OCD. Having held it all inside for so many years as a means of coping, this blog shares my story. Not just for myself, but for countless others who I know will relate. Anxiety is cruel, common, has the ability to make one feel so desperately alone. And as I ramble away, trying to make sense of where my thoughts end and I begin, I hope that (if you relate to this) this will serve to make some of that loneliness feel more bearable.   

Take a look at my blogs, and let me know what you think...
