Hi and welcome to my blog.
I’m Maja and I’m coming from Slovenia. I’m a full-time volunteer and mental health advocate.
My other passions are writing, editing, photography, and anything creative actually.
I began my blogging journey in 2006. Lampelina is my nickname since then, so the choice for the blog title was quite obvious.
My own experience
Particularly with CPTSD and life in general. I’m still a “work in progress” and I fail many times.
We’re different. What helped me, won’t necessarily help you too, but you can learn to listen to yourself better through my posts.
There are so much great materials out there already, that we can use and reuse. I’m sharing what I’ve found useful for myself.
You’ll find this content in the section “Further reading” below many posts or in the form of videos.
Sharing is caring, right?
I’m a nurse by profession. I gained my experience by helping people with physical disabilities, pulmonary patients and seniors.
I have studied midwifery, but never finished it and became a certified web developer instead. Long story.
I’m upgrading my knowledge at Coursera.
The courses I’ve finished so far:
- Psychological First Aid
- The Psychology of Thrill Seekers
- The Arts and Science of Relationships: Understanding Human Needs
- Creative Writing: The Craft of Plot
Less is more
I’m focused in providing the content that is short and easy to read, even for those who struggle with focus and attention. Just like myself.
