The story behind Eirene & Eudaimon.

Hey you! So happy to see you here!

I'm Em,

I have Borderline Personality Disorder (also known as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder) , Inattentive ADHD as well as Binge Eating Disorder.

I am aware that not everyone is pro-diagnosis.I share mine for awareness and to hopefully show others diagnosed, not or awaiting, that they are not alone nor do they need to feel they should keep quiet.

I have found that my diagnosis' have allowed me to understand my difficulties in processing every day life and ultimately enabled me to tap into the little links of happiness life can also offer. 

I believe it is in mutual agreement that there are certain times in life that give you big chunks of feelingmeaning to life, happiness or comfort.

It sounds incredibly cliche AF, but we need to find those moments that provide those kinds of clarity.

When deciding on what to call this blog, I wanted to encapsulate this.

'Eirene' is the name of the Greek Goddess of Peace. 

Eudaimon/Eudaimonia is Greek for good spirit/happiness or welfare. Closer translations have been proposed to be 'human flourishing, prosperity and blessedness'.

Through the usual UPS and DOWNS from life and MH issues I have learnt the following: 

- Take hold of life's little lessons whatever they may be.

- To cherish those moments of good spirit and use them to help build yourself and others around you.

So why don't we put everything of the above together?!

And so I welcome you to Eirene & Eudaimon. 

Call it what you will. A safe space? A blog for random musings? A spiritual awakening?



Em xx
