Mental illness and euthanasia – My thoughts

        If a dog is terminally ill we do the kindest thing and we have our dear friend put to sleep, the same goes for cats, guinea pigs, rats or even gerbils. We cannot bear to see them in pain and so we say our goodbyes and allow them to leave in…… Continue reading Mental illness and euthanasia – My thoughts

You can’t fake happiness

  I’m a big believer in positive thinking but it has to come from a healthy place.

The black hole that is clinical depression is all-consuming. … But the soul-crushing depression that envelops them leaves them feeling like there is no alternative.’…… Continue reading It’s not selfish.

Angry!!!

The slightest thing could set me off and it was always genuinely uncontrollable. Until recently I actually thought that I was just a miserable sod,…… Continue reading Angry!!!

Sadness

I wish the rain would comfort me each time I shed a tear,  if this were so, we’d all be drowned within the year. There is no way to hold  them back, the fear and pain push through, the emotions cloud my thoughts, the tears obscure my view. For a moment I catch the sunshine,…… Continue reading Sadness
