Not being able to trust my own thoughts is unsettling at best but when they are monumentally absurd then it can be terrifying. I have panic attacks on a regular basis and sometimes as a result of these panic attacks my brain will give me some ‘untruths’. For example, I will have thoughts of,‘You’re doingContinue reading “Are you sure?”

”I can’t human today, I dropped my bowl of cereal”
“I can’t come to work today, I dropped my bowl of cereal”…This sentence sounds utterly ridiculous, and is not ordinarily a good enough reason to call in sick to work. Just clean up the cereal, get yourself another bowl. But what if that was the last of the milk and now you can’t have anyContinue reading “”I can’t human today, I dropped my bowl of cereal””
Mental Well-being is more important than anything.
Home Education, or Home Schooling, as it’s more commonly known has never really been on my radar. I did once toy with the idea of it when my son was being bullied at Primary School, and if I’d known then what I know now, I probably would have made this decision a lot sooner. AroundContinue reading “Mental Well-being is more important than anything.”
Why do we find it so difficult to say the word ‘rape’?
This has not been easy to write, not only because it’s traumatic for me but also because I have struggled with how to put this into words. There are people who will read this who are my friends and family who had no idea that I have been through what I have been through. It’sContinue reading “Why do we find it so difficult to say the word ‘rape’?”
My mental health
Mental Health issues are something we will all deal with at some point in our lives, whether that be with ourselves, a co-worker, a family member or a friend. There will not be a magic cure, our mental health issues are something we need to nurture and care for on an ongoing basis. Many peopleContinue reading “My mental health”
All of the anxiety!

I don’t want to talk about anxiety in general as it manifests differently for everyone. Let’s talk about how MYContinue reading “All of the anxiety!”
Don’t fight the fear, follow it.
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 my anxiety coming into play and it makes everything seem a thousand times worse thanContinue reading “Don’t fight the fear, follow it.”
My anxiety and me
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 us constantly. Each day is a brand new chance, every time you go somewhere newContinue reading “My anxiety and me”
If you’re going through hell…
‘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. And although the perfection that awaits will ultimately fade and your hell will rear its ugly head once more, just rememberContinue reading “If you’re going through hell…”
Coping, not cured.
I have anxiety and PTSD. I have these things due to instances, events and traumas that have occurred during my life. They have caused parts of my brain to break and they might not ever knit back together properly. That’s okay though. I may never be ‘cured’ but I’m learning to cope.Continue reading “Coping, not cured.”
