New Begginings

After a lot of mithering over the decision, I've finally made the move to Wordpress. Blogger will always be in my heart but unfortunately we've just outgrown each other (it's not you, it's me). No longer will I be known as the infamous 'Above Anxiety', my new blog is going to be called 'Lisa's Reality' and I will be blogging about various things such as lifestyle and student life, rather than limiting myself to only mental-health (of course I will still be blogging about mental health, too!).

There's a few reasons for this decision:

I am more than my mental health conditions!

I no longer want to be defined by my mental health conditions. Yes, I'm wired a little differently up in the ol' noggin but my identity is more than just anxiety on legs (although that's debatable). Believe it or not, I have hobbies (yes, I do get out of bed some days!).

I want to write about everything that I'm interested in, share tips I've learnt throughout my first year of university (although good luck if you take my advice!) and talk about the things I love. Yes I have OCD, anxiety and anorexia and I still struggle with those things every single day of my life but I'm also Lisa, a nineteen year old student trying to navigate her way in adult life!

Bye bye, Blogger!

As I've already mentioned Blogger just ain't doing it for me anymore. I've had this blog for one year and in that time I have gained one follower (I'll never forget you). Yes, it's not all about followers but before you judge me, I think we all like to know that people are actually reading the blog we are putting our heart and soul into (if you disagree, you're lying). On Wordpress it just seems so much easier to discover and follow your favourite blogs.

So is it really over?

I probably won't be posting here on Above Anxiety much more (if at all). Instead, I'll be posting all of my mental-health related content on my new blog, 'Lisa's Reality'. Above Anxiety served me well when I simply needed a place to vent my feelings but I'd like to think I've grown in this past year and that means it's time to embrace everything that is me.

I haven't completely decided what I'm going to do with Above Anxiety, maybe just leave it here as some of the content may still be useful for people to read? Or leave this post here for a while directing you to Lisa's Reality before deleting this blog altogether. I have however pulled over a few of my posts from here onto Wordpress to get me started.

Who knows what I'll do. It feels wrong to delete a year's worth of my most personal thoughts and feelings and I'm sure it will be nice (perhaps not the right word) to look back on this blog.

Let me know what you think of this move and if you think it's a terrible idea, perhaps keep it to yourself because it's too darn late! (Only kidding, say what ya like).

Goodbye! (oh no I'm terrible with goodbyes typing that is filling me with dread)

Lisa :)
