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 →

Stop telling me what to do!

    I am so fed up of being told what to do, who to follow, how to raise your social following by 10,000 a day, how to lose 6 stone in an hour. "I went from being a total jobless, drug addict to earning £70,000 a day, overnight" Erm... no, you didn't. I follow... Continue Reading →

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 →

Darkness – The all consuming

      The pain cuts through you without any warning sign. An invisible force has presented itself in front of you. You can't see it but you sure as hell can feel it. There's no way around it, through it or over it. It torments and taunts without even uttering a sound. You can... Continue Reading →

It’s not selfish.

              'Suicide is a lot of things, but selfish isn't one of them. Suicide is a decision made out of desperation, hopelessness, isolation and loneliness. 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 →
