Deactivating my Twitter account means I have a major case of FOMO – Fear Of Missing Out (even if I only did it 3 hours ago.)

It’s the main reason why I haven’t deactivated it before when I knew it was what I needed.

I fear I will miss out on new posts from the bloggers and writers I admire so much. (I have subscribed by email to a lot but I know there are some I have missed out.)

I fear I will miss out on supporting the friends that I’ve made on Twitter when they are going through tough times and this will makes me feel like a very bad friend (so many of them have always been there for me and I am incredibly grateful for them.)

I fear people will forget about me.

I fear people won’t actually miss me (and who would when I’ve been in such a bad mood lately.)

But most of all I fear that if I don’t take a big step back to try and forget what is causing me so much emotional pain I will sink even further into the extremely depressive state I have been in for the past few days (or 9 months depending on how you look at it.)

If you do want to contact me then just email me at

    I “left Twitter” too a few weeks ago. Keeping in touch with those I want via my blog – I really don’t feel I’m missing out at all. Just not having my day filled with “rubbish” … I hope you’ll feel better for it – I know I do.
    BMN xx
