• Thank u, next

    It’s the last day of the year and 2018 has been quite the year. It was always going to be a memorable one but turned out not to be for the reason I had planned. Funny old thing life isn’t it? There have been incredible highs and unfathomable lows but here I am at the […]

  • The most wonderful time of the year….

    I don’t know how it happened but Christmas is here again. I’m not quite sure I’m over the last one to be honest, but here we are. As you’re aware it’s not really my most favourite time of the year, in fact it fills me with dread and I feel terribly guilty for not really […]

  • Read all about it

    I’m sat on a train with a very long journey ahead of me (albeit with a dog at the end so very much worth it) and I thought I would finally write this post that I’ve been meaning to for weeks. So here goes. For anyone unlucky enough to follow me on social media, you’ll […]

  • The first cut is the deepest….

    I was horrified to learn last week that almost a quarter of 14 year old girls self harm or have self harmed. I’ve thought long and hard about writing this post as it’s such a misunderstood side of mental health and I’m also very conscious that writing about it is difficult because I don’t want […]

  • I Get Lonely Too….

    I seem to always begin these posts with “it’s been a while” and once again, it has. Life gets in the way and all that. But I’ve forced myself to sit down and take stock this evening as the last few weeks have been somewhat surreal. Firstly as a media volunteer for Mind, I was […]

  • Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you tomorrow….

    It’s been a while since I felt compelled to write anything on here and truth be told I’m not really feeling ‘compelled’ to but I’m trying to fill my evenings with more positive activities (read: I’ve been drinking too much) so here we are. And as people keep telling me, writing is cathartic. It’s been a […]

  • Stop crying your heart out….

    I’m sat here in front of my laptop, desperate to cry. I’ve listened to all the songs that always make me cry and yet nothing. I feel like a pressure cooker about to blow and having a good old cry usually helps. But the Sertraline says no. I’ve always been a crier. Happiness, sadness, you name it; […]

  • It’s not right and it’s not okay…..

    It sounds very clichéd, but all I really want to do in life is make a difference and help others. I enjoy seeing other people happy and pride myself on trying to be a nice person (admittedly this is easier said than done at times). I try and be a good daughter, sister, girlfriend, aunt […]

  • There goes the fear…..

    I’ve no doubt mentioned this before, but I don’t really drink anymore which means I don’t really go out-out anymore. I still go to gigs and stuff but my days of getting extremely drunk are well behind me thanks to the fact it plays havoc with my mental health and it takes far too long […]

  • Peaks and Troughs

    I had a shitty day yesterday but today is hopefully not going to be quite so shitty so I thought I would break my silence and write a blog. The last few months have been tough. The disappointment of not finishing my charity walk hit me hard and has taken me a fair while to […]
