Hello! I’m Hazel (a.k.a. the patchwork fox).

About (

So who am I?

Well, I’m still figuring out that part, but I’m getting there.

I’m a:

  • writer and poet
  • peer support volunteer (mental health)
  • cat mum
  • human daughter/sister/friend

I started this blog to share my lived experience of mental illness: Borderline Personality Disorder, depression and anxiety.

Over time, it has evolved and expanded to include more topics, including but not limited to self-care, addiction, recovery, relationships, personal growth, and creativity.

I’m sure that this blog will continue to grow and branch out into new, interesting areas… that’s the plan, anyway!

The two loves of my life are my cats, Anna and Elsa. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you will see them often.

If you have any questions for me, you can send me an email at, or you can use the contact form here.
