Flap Flap.

‘So do not forget, not everyone has the skills to impact on somebody’s life. But now you all do, through the power of positivity. Use your power wisely. Thank you and goodnight.’ And with a final flick of her over highlighted hair, and a well timed meaningful look deep in to the darkness of the […]

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 […]

Jack be Nimble.

I forgot Wee Willy Winky. It was 7 am and we were leaving the house for school. It was still dark, it was freezing outside, I was holding 3 bags, a toasted cheese sandwich, a water bottle and my house keys. My tights were falling down, my not quite dry hair was clinging to my […]

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 […]

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 […]

Acceptance.

And that is the problem with pretending you don’t suffer from mental illness, you see, It’s just not sustainable. At some point whatever it is you suffer with, be that voices in your head, an overwhelming urge to just randomly punch people in the groin, emotional and violent mood swings, foreboding and terrifying panic attacks […]

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. […]

Dory.

The Irish one has decided to start growing potatoes, on our kitchen windowsill. I paused there so that the full horror of what I am telling you can sink in. The man has ultimately thought about it long and hard, and has evidently come to the conclusion that growing potatoes, in an already crammed two […]
