Welcome to the home of the blogs where you can find all of my musings and ramblings.
This is where I talk about anything and everything that has even the slightest thing to do with mental health and wellbeing, as well as pouring out my soul for all to see, which is frankly, quite terrifying. BUT if I want to spread the word and raise awareness of mental health issues then it only makes sense that I ‘walk the walk’ as they say.
If you find something that interests you then do leave a comment on any of the blogs or get in touch. Or if there’s a subject I haven’t covered that you’d like to know more about then let me know and I’ll do my very best.
You can also follow my Facebook page where I offer loads of tips and thoughts on how best to protect your own mental health.
What’s in a name? Would a rose actually still be thought of as sweet if we didn’t associate it with love and romance? Do names affect our perception? Is hope really hope or is it just a villain, masquerading as a hero?
When it comes to first aid, we all know where to go for a plaster or a painkiller. But what about your mental health? What do you do when you need something to help that?
Feeling tired has pretty much been a constant for the past twelve years. I think I’ve uttered the phrase “I’m so tired” so many times it’s losing all meaning. The fatigue does have it’s uses however by giving me blog ideas in the middle of the night. Silver lining and all.
Are you sick and tired of people telling you that you need a blog, without telling you why? Luckily for you, I’ve come up with many compelling reasons to answer that very question…
Stress. It’s a familiar feeling and something that every single person has experienced at some point. But what happens when it all gets too much?
Knowing you need help and asking for are some of the hardest things you can do. But when you do, it really does make a world of difference.
Joy. A complex emotion that’s harder to find and even harder to keep but honestly, it’s worth the fight. I’ve finally found joy in my work and I love it! What’s even better is finding people who have the same passion.
Warning! There is strong language in this post (depression is a bit pants so I feel it’s warranted on this occasion), so if you don’t want to see it stop now.
If you’re cool with that however, read on.
Survival. A primal instinct that allows parents to lift cars off their children and others to put one foot in front of the other when they’ve been beaten down. It’s what makes you nauseous and your heart start to race when you’re anxious.
It’s what keeps you alive.
Pain is a familiar feeling yet completely unique to us all. We all feel it differently, we all survive it differently, we all handle it differently but in the end, we all hate it equally. Funny that.
Netflix and Chill. The phrase means many things to different people and has certain, associations, that some of us may not have thought about. Me, I mean me.
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. Two big words that are the bane of my life. Alas, I can’t get rid of them so you might as well know what it’s all about. Read on for all the ins and out of dealing with M.E.
