I'm back! After blogging every single day throughout June I needed a break. I've taken 18 days off but it feels so much longer and I'm really ready to get back into the swing of things again, I'm hoping to post a couple of times a week at least. A lot has happened in my… Continue reading Happy Place
No word prompt today as I've just got some things on my mind that I can witter on about! I've been in hospital a lot in my life but this time has been different. I never get nervous because I always know as soon as I get the treatment I need that I'll be okay,… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 26 – Lucky
Still in ICU. Just not got it in me today to write. I'm exhausted and so fed up, sorry guys.
Today's word prompt is ‘help.’ Incredibly ironic. I'm currently in intensive care but nothing will ruin my June Challenge. It's really hard to write so I'll be brief. Love one another, never take your health for granted and accept any and all help you can get because it's never a weakness. Goodnight x
Today's word prompt is ‘peace.’ How do we find inner peace? I used to believe I'd only feel this when everything in life had slotted into place, but I'm realising that through 99% of life there's always something we would change. It's rare we're ever completely happy with our lot. I found that the secret… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 22 – Peace
Today's word prompt is ‘Farm.’ Ahhhh what a day! For those of you that are new here I've mentioned before that I have a erm...colourful mental health history. After I came off meds there was a definite shift in not only my coping strategies but also in how I feel. When I'm not in a… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 20 – Farm
Today's word prompt is ‘breeze.’ I got back in the gym today after a couple of weeks off and I can't believe the impact a bit of exercise can have on my mood! The effects of exercise on mental health are well documented; with some literature and research finding that it is as effective in… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 17 – Breeze
Today's word prompt is ‘night.’ In my life night time has provided me with two very contrasting experiences. Party. Drink flowing, music blaring, friends aplenty, stupid dancing, heel wearing, dress flaunting, memory making, new beginnings, headache inducing, lipstick smudging, belly laughing, all the eating and most of all, possibilities. Anticipation of what will come and… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 15 – Night
There's no word prompt for today, it didn't feel right after today. So instead, meet Dot. She's my giant rabbit, I've had her nearly 4 years and she's my best mate. Today I found out she's losing her fight, she's coming home from the hospital tomorrow to spend one more weekend at home and then… Continue reading Saying Goodbye.
Over the last two weeks I've found myself wanting to write. I've been willing myself to get the laptop out to attempt to construct a new post but I didn't have it in me to put fingers to keyboard. I started this blog because I wanted to and I told myself that if it ever became… Continue reading Procrastination, motivation and mood
Hi! Thanks for joining me and as this is my first post please do see the About page to see what all this is for, who I am and why I'm bothering! The first thing I want to talk about is what started this whole thing off for me; medication. More specifically coming off psychotropic medication and… Continue reading Withdrawal, discontinuation syndrome and brain zaps
