Relapse of worry

I have to remember on nights like today how far I’ve come. It’s hard because today I had a lot of things to do, a lot of places to be and lots of people to meet and I was overwhelmed from the moment I woke up.

Group therapy: week 1

I made it, I can't tell you yet that I enjoyed it or that I got anything out of it, but I did it. I came home actually feeling less positive and more helpless.

Trying to be non-judgemental is hard, saying “I never judge anyone” is rarely true but it doesn’t stop you having an opinion! & you need to think about it before you say iti

I try hard to be non- judgemental. To be honest I always thought I was, but I'm not & I'm sure if we were all honest there are few of us that are. If the world was as full of half the people who insist on the lack of judgement about others then we'd live… Continue reading Trying to be non-judgemental is hard, saying “I never judge anyone” is rarely true but it doesn’t stop you having an opinion! & you need to think about it before you say iti

Mental health judgements – I am more than my diagnosis!

Before I start this blog, I can genuinely say it's not about anyone in particular or any incident. I read something on Twitter & it reminded me of several occasions when it crops up.
