Why did I start a blog?

Whilst being in hospital, the days can sometimes fall into each other and it’s easy to lose track of what day of the week it is. I’m hopeful that the creation of this blog provides me with a positive distraction, and a contributes towards steadily managing the past, present and future. Even upon discharge I feel as though throughout my ordeal (To read about this, check out the My Story page), I have had so much support, from friends, family and even strangers. I have experienced a sense of being, a feeling of care and support, from people all around the world that I have never and probably never will meet. Whenever I devote time to sort through the hundreds of messages I have received from well wishers, I always get filled with a sinking feeling. These people want updates on how I am, and they just want to help, yet I have been struggling to respond at a respectable rate. My way of thanking and updating others, as well as handling this chapter in my life is to document it as a blog. Even here, at the beginning of my online journey, I realise that I need to make sure I establish what I decide to post to the world, and what I’d like to keep private.

…That is why I want to create to sides of me, Resham.online, my online self that shares parts of her life with the world, and Resham Khan, my offline self, that moves forward, and tries her best to move upwards and onwards…
So here I am for you all, a blog on updates, a blog devoted to my recovery, to my future, to me. No running away or hiding, no being fearful, just Resham.online.

  1. I follow you on Twitter since your tweet went viral. What you’ve gone through has affected me may be because I’m a 21 year old ‘bluffting’ lass who is a mother of a three year old son. What’s happened to you can happen to anyone, it could have happened to me or God forbid to my son.

    It’s 11:30pm, I’m in bed ready to slumber and I think of you being in hospital, the first flashback I have is of your picture in a pink salwar/kameez and the first thing that springs to mind is what a beautiful girl, the next flashback is truly heart wrenching.

    I love your tweets and I love your blog; you’re truly gifted. The flow of your writing gags readers to crave for more, please continue indulging us with your style of writing!

    Resham, I’ve just prayed my night prayer and made a dua for you: May Allah always be with you. x

    1. You’re right, it could of happened to anyone, that’s why I’m trying my best to make sure it’s stopped. I’m glad you’re enjoying my writing, and please don’t let your mind take you to bad thoughts. Thank you for all your kind words and you dua, it’s just what I need. Thank you x

  2. Never give up resham you are a very strong girl for opening up like this and not hiding away in you sorrows and never feel low about yourself not looking very pretty because there are a lot of people out there who are pretty on the outside but bitter in the inside but you are very bright and humble even after what’s happened to you a lot of people brake down mentally and physically after something like this but you Ma Sha Allah have kept very strong and stable and In Sha Allah you always will, and you are a diomand and it’s not always the shiny ones that are worth Much it’s the dull ones that fool people, so keep strong resham because your voice and you bravery will make a difference.
