About the Author

Hi, I’m Rosalind.

I’m 24 years old and I’m from East Anglia (UK). If we’re not judging books by covers, I like to think my soul-portrait would look like this:

Zooey Deschanel, my spirit animal
Zooey Deschanel, my spirit animal

But alas, inside I usually feel like this:

AaaRrrRGggGHhhhHh!!?!*£$*£!!!!
AAAAARGHHHH*!H!*&^!**!!!

That’s because I have chronic pelvic pain – well, if I’m being polite or aloof.  If I know you, like you, trust you, or if I’m on a low-spoon day and I’m tired of trying to sound sophisticated, I have vulvodynia, otherwise known as “Hmmm, That’s Weird, Everything Looks Perfectly Healthy, But You Still Feels Like You’re On Fire, You Say?”-itis.  Separate from this (or perhaps as a result of this – ooh, #intrigue), I also suffer from fibromyalgia, which has left me paddling in the shallow end of disability. In short, I know rather a lot about invisible, devastating pain. Now there’s a recipe for fun if ever I saw one!!!1!1!

Aside from feeling the raging fires of hell in my crotch (for more on this, follow this link), here are some other things I like to talk/think about:

  • writing
  • books
  • feminism
  • philosophy
  • cats and dogs (none of your false dichotomy here)
  • Spoonie living*
  • music
  • comedy
  • my family
  • sticky toffee pudding

*If you’re not aware of Spoon Theory, here’s a description: Urban Dictionary definition of “Spoonie”.  Shout out to Christine Miserando for this useful vocabulary!

You can navigate my blog posts using the menu at the top or via the righthand sidebar. If you’d prefer to browse by date, you can see choose from the archive in the footer.

Please leave footprints by writing a comment, reblogging, or saying hello on social media (I especially love it when people Tweet me).

Remember, folks: Pyjamas are perfectly acceptable daywear. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a liar, and is almost certainly hiding the best biscuits from you in a secret cupboard. These are dark times we live in. Stay alert.
