‘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, […]

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 […]

Marbles. Scattered. Everywhere…

My therapist behaved like a goat today. I am not sure I can be much clearer than that to be honest. It isn’t a metaphor. I was sitting on his plushy three seater purple sofa, my legs curled up underneath me, my phone on silent beside me, the summer rain angrily pounding the window behind […]

I’m gonna run away for a bit now. (But i mean it.)

I still have a long way to go I know this. I’m having a little trouble at the moment distinguishing dreams from real life – so I don’t for one-second feel ‘cured.’ (Mental note to self; Alanis Morissette isn’t your best friend who takes you abroad on a tour bus and you aren’t a robot […]

Jubilee Memory’s. (Who the hell is Edward?)

‘Why would a gorilla be on the boat with the queen?’ He plonks himself down on the sofa in front of where Addison and I are now attempting to re-create the leaning tower of pizza out of mega blocks, well I am, Addison has now grown bored and has taken to throwing them at Doodle […]

I Should Never have Gotten out of the Car. (Booo!)

“Is there any such thing as a healthy relationship?’ His curious and caring eyes are not robust enough to penetrate my armor today, no matter how much I hunger for them to be. No matter how desperately I crave for them to be. The setting of my therapy has changed. I pull up on the […]

A Lifestyle Choice? (Depression for Dummies.)

It’s not that I don’t like my life. I do. ‘Good morning Starbucks, yes I am fine, are you?’ I know I am very lucky. I know from the outside looking in it would seem that I have nothing to be unhappy about, nothing at all. I know I’m very lucky to have a beautiful […]

Music as Therapy.

I used to listen to music all the time. Back when I was young, free, single and happy (read; drunk) turning the stereo on while searching through a huge pile of cd’s with one hand, and grabbing my glasses and a pint of water with the other, was all part of my very brief morning […]

Life in Slow Motion.

Shopping I must shop today, I need sponges and cloths, the one on the sink has been there since New Kids on the Block were at number 1. It is manky. Which reminds me I need to buy some drain un-blocker too. The plug is filled with hair. Gross. I wonder if I will ever […]

Ann Glummers.

What does one pack to stay in a lunatic asylum? The answer all though you may think simple is actually a recipe for disaster. Let us examine the evidence. Your head is west, your soul east, your mind north, and your boobs, as always… pointing south. Couple this with having to put ones case together […]
