My anxiety is not your anxiety

  and vice versa.   Don’t automatically assume that just because I’m able to do things that you can’t that your anxiety issues are worse than mine. You have zero idea how much effort it takes for me to do to things and how much it hurts to do things too. You should also not

Sorry, I’m busy

  Sorry, I’m busy… What does that mean to you? If I say “I’m busy” when someone asks me if I’m free for something it can mean several different things. I’m busy translates as ‘I have other plans’, ‘I’m out’… I’m working I’m going to the cinema I’m out for the day I’m at the

Not your everyday ‘My Holiday’ post.

  I have just returned from another fantastic holiday with my Mum and my son, we’ve been away together quite a few times and we always have so much fun. I adore the relationship that we have, it’s not like a tolerance because we’re family, I genuinely love spending time with both of them. We

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

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

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

You can’t fake happiness

  I’m a big believer in positive thinking but it has to come from a healthy place. You can’t force yourself to be happy and you can’t fake it neither, you’re only going to make yourself ill if you live like this. You need to be aware of your everyday humany-wumany feelings . You’re allowed
