‘This time next week I will be admitted in to the Priory. I need help, and soon.’

That was what she had written on her Facebook Status. I’ll be honest, at first I was a little shocked. It is not like people to be so honest on my Facebook timeline. I was taken aback, and then I was hugely inspired by her strength. She is quite clearly desperate for help, I thought, […]

Maggie Hitchin. I told you I’d write about you.

‘You are only 25 once.’ Those were the last words she spoke and then she died. She released my hand, exhaled loudly and her head fell softly on to the pillow. It was not as romantic as I am making it sound. I shit myself. I have never seen anyone die and it was a […]

Reality Bites.

I was shaking like a shitting dog. My pupils must have been dilated, I couldn’t stop licking my lips and I know my face was as white as a sheet as I could feel all of the blood that had recently drained from it, sloshing about in my feet as I struggled to place one […]

Viva La Vida.

It came over me quickly. One minute I was lying on the living room floor, struggling to build a Nasa space rocket out of lego, having fun with Addy, like any other typical saturday evening, and the next, everything had shifted. That is literally the only word that fits what happened. And it happened so […]

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 […]

Beauty and the Buffoon.

I guess you could say, I am not your average Disney princess. If they ever do decide to make a musical fairytale however, about a self harming, suicidal, manic depressive and slightly paranoid flabby woman, with a penchant for tattoos and wearing fake eye lashes, who gets sectioned but fights hard to get better, finds […]

What goes Up, Must come Down. (Woof.)

‘How can you be so flamboyant with your rejection? How can you be so cold? So utterly devoid of emotion?’ It has been a long and soul-crushing six weeks. Weeks made up not of days, but of moments where my breath has repeatedly been violently ripped from my harmless and on occasion quite hopeful chest, […]

A Guardian Angel.

‘Do you want me to call an ambulance?’ ‘No. Honestly it’s fine. I will be fine. Honest.’ ‘Are you sure? Your hand was just on fire.’ ‘Oh…good point, but no, I don’t want to waste their time you know? They are probably really busy.’ ‘Lexy. Your hand was just On. Fire! I am calling an […]

Is this the light? (Hope.)

I am in shock. It is 2012 and I am 32 years old. I have lost time, where have I been for the last 17 years? I just woke up. 2001 was 11 years ago, I am in shock. 1999 was 13 years ago. I am sad. Where have I been? I have been lost, […]

Home is Where the Vomit is. *

‘Time waits for no man but true love lasts forever.’ Well, except when it doesn’t. Because lets face it I am sure we have all ‘fallen in true love’  a few times, at some point. You know, back in our histories, back when true love didn’t involve cleaning vomit out of our eyelashes at 3am, […]
