The title of my blog 'Dolly Rocker' was inspired by the Syd Barrett song of the same name. It began playing when I was creating my blog and it just felt perfect. Not only is it a song by one of my favourite people, it's also a brand of dress which was incredibly popular throughout the '60s and really epitomizes the era, and also I'm simply a dolly bird obsessed with her rock music. So you see it's completely fitting! I've been blogging for many, many years but have shifted and changed blogs a few times for various reasons - I drive myself mad with it! I moved across to here in June 2016 and it's where I'm settling in for good.
On any given day I might be found drawing and painting (I'm happiest when I'm covered in paint), taking photographs, wandering through nature, playing dress up, travelling as much as possible, binge watching movies, reading horror novels, or rooting through junk shops.
I'm a big advocate for mental illness awareness, especially as almost all online discussion is narrowed to solely discussing anxiety and depression which can be alienating when you have other disorders that are still so stigmatised. It's not something I like to bring up often as it doesn't define who I am as a human being and I don't want people to just think of me as my illness, but it is a part of me and I think it's important to share experiences about these things.
