Who is Ellie Murphy Anyway?
How much time have you got exactly? Lol!
The truth is I could literally write a book about my life…..and I have threatened to do it many times. Maybe one of these days I will. In the meantime here are some of the main things you might be interested to know about me:
Firstly, I started working online after health problems meant I was no longer able to hold down a regular job. I was diagnosed with depression at the age of 18, and several other debilitating conditions since that. Migraine, Fibromyalgia, Endometriosis, and Anxiety are the main ones that affect me on a daily or almost daily basis…. Its almost always a pain or a mood day. Despite that I do believe that life is what you make of it. I try my best to not let my health stop me from doing the things that I love!
If you continue to read my blog posts you will no doubt find that I am very open about my health issues. I worked in mental health for years and proudly campaigned against stigma. I hope that by being open and discussing the impact of conditions like depression and anxiety that some general understanding of what it is like to live with mental health problems is gained. It also seems to have a positive impact on others with health issues….. I like how my honesty sometimes helps to motivate others with similar problems to take positive action to improve their own lives.
Here is a video I recorded for exactly that reason:
In a funny kind of way it is thanks to my health issues that I live ‘my best life’. If it wasn’t for all of the bad health stuff I have had to deal with, well I would still be working in a job that I loved, but left me little time or energy for anything else.
Since I started working online I have found a much more rewarding and interesting way to make money, to meet new people, and to learn some very useful skills. The best bit though is every day I get to work on following my dreams…..
Talking of dreams, for years I have wanted a campervan. Thanks to working online I bought one in 2020. I love the outdoors and especially going for walks with my beloved dog. I have a particular affinity with big dogs and started 2021 by buying an American Bull Dog puppy. I imagine my van, and Sienna my big and beautiful puppy, will both feature quite a lot in my updates.
To Your Success
