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 →

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.

My anxiety and me

Just one day at a time.

I will promote the importance of understanding mental health issues until it is no longer a taboo subject. I will happily stand up in front of people and tell them how I once found it so difficult to leave the house that my Dad had to literally pick me up and carry me in to... Continue Reading →

Coping, not cured.

      I have anxiety and PTSD. I have these things due to instances, events and traumas that have occurred during my life.
