One Whole Year

This blog is one year old today. I started with the intention of only really writing one post. I was coming off medication and going through withdrawal and couldn't find the information I wanted about what was happening to me, so I wrote it myself from an experiential point of view. If you want to… Continue reading One Whole Year

Unwavering Optimism and the Pursuit of Happiness

My goal for the year was to write one post a month but I missed March already! A lot has changed in my life in the last few months, and as a creature of habit I don't do too well with change. Inevitably, following a period of arguable chaos and instability, comes the opportunity to… Continue reading Unwavering Optimism and the Pursuit of Happiness

Kids: Assets or Liabilities?

If you've seen the news over the last week you'll have seen that Raphael Samuel, a 27 year old man from India, is suing his parents for forcing him to be born. Samuel is claiming that he didn't consent to being created or being entered into the world and the expectation placed upon him to… Continue reading Kids: Assets or Liabilities?

The Existential Crisis

It's been a while! How ironic that my last post was about motivation yet it's taken me a month to get my arse in gear and write again. Since my last post a lot has changed in my life which has culminated in feelings which I'll be talking about, summed up by the title above.… Continue reading The Existential Crisis

Procrastination, motivation and mood

I started this blog because I wanted to and I told myself that if it ever became… Continue reading Procrastination, motivation and mood

Love, loss and supporting your own team

Love.The complicated, fantastic minefield that we all experience one way or another at some point in life. It can be the most fulfilling yet painful adventure that's full of ups and downs, uncertainty and comfort all at the same time. The rush of excitement and anticipation when you first meet a new partner is unparalleled.… Continue reading Love, loss and supporting your own team

Happiness; the destination and the journey.

The title of this post is so cheesy but I couldn't have summarised it any better so bare with me. I'm a self-confessed over analyser. I struggle to just accept things as they are and I constantly question what things mean and why. It's a running joke in the family! When I was a child my auntie… Continue reading Happiness; the destination and the journey.

Self-esteem, body confidence and the media

This one is a biggie for me and a subject I've been nervous to write about for fear of being judged, oh the irony. Growing up during my teen years I noticed that I never felt the same pressure as my peers to conform to a certain look, style or fashion and I wasn't overly… Continue reading Self-esteem, body confidence and the media

Withdrawal, discontinuation syndrome and brain zaps

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
