The Faces of Depression. #SmileSelfie

We have been known to suffer with Depression. We dance, we sing, we play, we laugh, we live and we work very hard every day to survive. We are depressed. I guess this must also mean we have ‘Mental Health Issues.’ We have become accustomed to the labelling. The stigma. Sometimes in the darkest of […]

The Life and Times of Dog.

Do you ever feel like you’ve just got too much going on? ‘I’ve so much on,’ you say to a work colleague ‘I can’t think straight, I’m so tired.’ Your hands rise up to nestle your chin and face, mid conversation, and then inadvertently, you pull the skin around your eyes down towards you. It […]

When we Collide…

It’s the hallucinations that are the hardest to deal with. Imagine your brain as a half eaten pot of strawberry yoghurt, you know the big silver spoon will soon reappear and hungrily begin scraping and scooping out the final remaining blobs of your sanity, and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. That’s […]

Fix You. (Lights will guide you home.)

I envision myself sometimes when trying to fall asleep, hung from the doorframe, streaks of warm urine trailing down my legs and over stubbly ankles as my body relaxes and experiences relief for the very last time. My neon painted nails on lifeless feet. I lie there imagining myself googling beforehand how to tie a […]

Both Feet In.

I now know the difference between a Megabit and a Gigabit. Do not ask my why, or even how, for I am unable to tell you, but if you can stretch your imagination far enough to believe I am telling the truth, I will smile For it is so true. I am a nerd, maybe. […]

Jennifer Anniston? I want my life back.

There was a moment, in which my tired and rung out mind tried to connect with what my eyes were actually seeing, and then when it did finally catch up, I experienced a physical shock as the realisation of what was about to happen went straight through me, as if I had been thumped hard […]

Be Careful What You Wish For…

I just assumed it would all come true. I was destined for bigger things. I was so sure I was. I believed in it so deeply; that while I waited for ‘it’ to happen, life became grey and dull. Whatever ‘it’ was, I wouldn’t need to try at all, as I was just so sure, it […]

Whiplash…

I guess, in the grand scheme of things, I do take a lot for granted. It seems however that perhaps I should be more appreciative of stuff. Like, my neck. I never truly appreciated the momentous amount of effort my neck puts in everyday, not only keeping my humongous Sindy doll head with its erratic […]

A proposal, and a Bucket full of Hamsters. (Yeah.)

‘Who the hell do you think you are Lexy? What kind of person are you? Tell me!’ I catch my annoying therapist’s eye very deliberately for a very brief, uncomfortable moment in the silence immediately following this onslaught; but instead of answering him, I lean down very slowly and purposely, to unlace my big brown […]

I want, I want, I want… (A Tantruming therapy Meme.)

‘Why is he screaming so bloody loud?’ The Irish one is finally home from work and I feel like hurling myself on to the floor and licking his £12.99 Reebok specials in appreciation. ‘He wants me to jump out of the window like next door’s cat did,’ I howl over the tantrum taking place beneath […]
