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 →

Holy f**k, it’s the apocalypse!

I know you're probably not that interested in my thoughts on the pandemic, but I'm going to give them to you anyway... mainly for my own sanity and honestly, that's why I created this blog in the first place, somewhere to talk, vent, write. It's pretty much like having a diary right? When I post... Continue Reading →

Rape is not a dirty word!

I have been absent from my blog for a while now and I apologise. My main reason for blogging is to document my mental illness/health and to share my ongoing struggles. Fortunately, recently I've been in a really good place and haven't really had enough to warrant an entire blog piece! I have been fairly... 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 →

Cervical screenings in the time of corona-virus…

Quick recap: I had my routine smear test done last year. My results came back showing abnormal cells; cue my meltdown. I had a colposcopy and LLETZ procedure done at the end of August 2019, all cells were removed and I was told I would receive a follow up appointment for another smear in 6... Continue Reading →

Vagina, vagina, vagina… cervix, cervix, cervix… period, period, period.

*Warning. This blog post includes words like; vagina, cervix, and discharge... I get the impression that some people have issues with these words. So... sorry, not sorry. In June I went for my smear test, nothing out of the ordinary, or anything to get excited about. I've been for smear tests before. They're pretty low... Continue Reading →

Once again with feeling…but next time maybe a little less of the feeling. It hurts.

I know it might sound as though I'm repeating myself but some people are just still not getting it. Also, I apologise for the shouting but some people in the back can't hear me... A MIGRAINE IS NOT A HEADACHE! Also, whilst we're on the subject, a migraine is not a hangover and a hangover... Continue Reading →

Who is Chris.A.Turnbull?

Ahhh Chris Turnbull the fabulous author who adores Whitby and who makes everyone feel at ease with his infectious smile. I once had a dream where I sacrificed a goat in his oven.. and no that isn't a euphemism... Chris Turnbull was born in Bradford, West Yorkshire, before moving to Leeds with his family. He...

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...

The National Forest Adventure Farm’s Easter Eggstravaganza!

AD. I was gifted tickets from The National Forest Adventure Farm for our visit. All views are my own. What better way to start the Easter holidays than with a trip to the National Forest Adventure Farm! I've been coming to events here for two years now and they never cease to amaze me. I...
