Are you sure?

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 doing...

Super Empath!

Do you know how unsettling it is to feel how someone else is feeling? I don't mean you feel sorry for them because they're sad or hurt, I mean you FEEL how they feel.I was watching the film 'Free Solo' on National Geographic and there's a part in it where the climber talks about getting...

”I can’t human today, I dropped my bowl of cereal”

Photo by GEORGE DESIPRIS on Pexels.com "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... Continue Reading →

My Mental Health At Work…

It's certainly becoming common practice for workplaces to now have something in place to help combat mental illness issues in the workplace or have ways to increase the mental well being of the workforce. If not that, it is at least becoming easier to discuss mental illness issues with your employer. I know this is... Continue Reading →

Living with mental illness and living with mental illness.

You'd think that by now we wouldn't have to remind people that mental illness is unpredictable, that mental illness can and will affect someone close to you, maybe even you. You'd think that by now we could openly talk about our experiences with mental health issues, that we wouldn't be judged or shamed. Unfortunately that's... Continue Reading →

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. Around...

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's... Continue Reading →

It’s Xander!

Xander's GCSE artwork 'representing trans people's true selves, forcing their way out to finally be free'. I have known Xander for many years, his Mum is my best friend and we spend lots of time together... special occasions, random get-togethers, days out, the normal stuff that friends and family do together. I, therefore have always... Continue Reading →

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 people... Continue Reading →

All of the anxiety!

Right, here goes.  I am going to be completely honest and open with you about my anxiety. 100% truthful about the things that go on in my head. And I warn you, it's not pretty.  I don't want to talk about anxiety in general as it manifests differently for everyone. Let's talk about how MY... Continue Reading →
