Please Allow Me to Introduce Myself
Hello, hello. Welcome to Being The Little Spoon!
I’m Daisy aka Little Spoon (she/her), the human behind the blog.
Here’s a little introduction to me and what I am all about.
I am a disabled queer femme in my late twenties, currently residing in the UK. I live with my amazing partner/Big Spoon (he/they) of 12 years and a lot of pet birds!
Mental Health & Chronic Illness
I am autistic with a whole other bunch of mental health diagnoses that I hope to raise awareness of by sharing my first hand experiences on this blog. At present I have a formal diagnosis of complex post-traumatic stress disorder (C-PTSD) and borderline personality disorder (BPD) and am currently receiving treatment for both. I also have provisional diagnoses of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), a dissociative disorder, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) and a chronic pain condition. I struggle with self harm and am in recovery from an eating disorder.
So yeah, life is not the easiest sometimes, but I hope to spread some positivity by sharing my journey and a few spoonie life hacks!
I used to run a successful sex blog and that is where my writing roots lie. This blog will also be a sex and kink positive space aimed at folks age 18+ where I intend to share a bit of the knowledge that I gained over those years. I specialised in adult product reviews so you can expect to see a few of those on here as well as personal essays and musings.
A current value of mine is making the conscious effort to live more sustainably which I will also discuss on the blog. I am only making my first baby steps, from consuming fewer animal products to reducing my use of single use plastic. I have a strong ethical stance on animal testing and only promote cruelty free/vegan cosmetics and beauty products.
…and the rest!
My other passions include horror movies, heavy metal, alternative fashion and gaming (especially Pokémon!)
I am also an award winning burlesque artist and perform around the country.
