I am scared of something every single day. It could be anything. From the completely rational, ‘what if someone tries to break in’ to the totally irrational ‘what if I choke whilst eating this sandwich’. I know this is mainly … Continue reading Don’t fight the fear, follow it.
I don’t think I believe in fate. We’re all the keepers of our own destiny surely, and we make our own futures don’t we? However, I do believe that there are pathways and opportunities just sitting in front of … Continue reading My anxiety and me
‘If you’re going through hell my dear, just keep going’.* Do not stop to dwell on your surroundings. Your current hell is not where you belong, a beautiful paradise is waiting for you.

You have become stronger, in body, mind and spirit. These times will build you up into the most incredible person, equipped to deal … Continue reading If you’re going through hell…
and vice versa. Don’t automatically assume that just because I’m able to do things that you can’t that your anxiety issues are worse than mine. You have zero idea how much effort it takes for me to do to things and how much it hurts to do things too. You should also not assume that I am capable of doing the things that you can, even if we are both hindered by similar anxieties. On top of my anxiety I have fibromyalgia and due to this I may have days where I sit in bed all day and … Continue reading My anxiety is not your anxiety

I have just returned from another fantastic holiday with my Mum and my son, we’ve been away together quite a few times and we always have so much fun. I adore the relationship that we have, it’s not like a tolerance because we’re family, I genuinely love spending time with both of them. We always have a laugh, sometimes at each others expense, and there’s plenty of silliness, usually from my Mum and I, whilst Christopher stands there and shakes his head. We don’t get on 24/7 of course, there are disagreements to be had, we’re only human, but … Continue reading Not your everyday ‘My Holiday’ post.
…”Well yes probably and it’s most definitely taken a lot less than the naked form of Rose Dewitt Bukater” When you feel embarrassed your body releases adrenalin as it gets ready for the natural fight or flight response. The redness that appears on your cheeks is due to the veins under your skin dilating, allowing more blood to flow through them. This is all very interesting sciencey stuff but the question is why? What purpose does blushing serve other than embarrassing us further? Well unfortunately I don’t know because it still baffles the boffins. I flush red at inappropriate … Continue reading “I believe you are blushing”…
You don’t know exactly what the outcome will be. You just believe that your actions are going to be the cause of terrifying disaster. It’s a feeling of severe doom. A feeling that sends an icy chill down your spine and freezes your feet to the spot. The only emotion that you can muster is fear. Tears are burning your eyes, you can’t breathe, you have lost any means of a normal functioning body. Your hands feel ten times bigger than they are, leaving you unable to do anything, ultimately feeling useless. Your legs have become heavier … Continue reading How I handle my anxiety attacks.
