After 10 weeks my eardrum should have healed, but has it? No! It did seem to be getting better, but somehow over the last couple of weeks it's become infected again & now it feels like the whole process is starting again, and my anxiety just makes that worse. I put off going back to… Continue reading Should my physical or mental health come first?

In 2010, mental health was covered in the Equality… Continue reading Learning My Mental Health Diagnosis Was Considered A Disability

Self-harm is a very personal & often taboo subject, but I still think it has to be discussed. So many people think it's what attention seekers do, or that it's just cutting. If it's not spoken about it just increases the nature for it to be hidden, secretive & a very lonely time for those… Continue reading Self harm is a difficult topic, but it should still be discussed
This last 14 days has been pretty full on by anyone's standards, but for me it's been exhausting. Not only have I been trying so hard so keep up a positive front, but for the first time in a long time I've been here there & everywhere.
