This is Parenting.

I hesitated. 999. I need to dial 999. I was stood by the front door, away from them. My heart was hammering out of my chest, the ringing in my ears was becoming unbearable, my eyes were watering, as I seemed unable to even blink, and my brain had just stopped dead, unable to cope […]

The Death Talk.

‘Mummy?’ I am barely awake. In fact, hang on, Im not even awake. This has to be a dream. ‘Mummy?’ No. Oh hell no. I am not a mummy. I am a goddess. I am only 24. I was out all night ‘owning the night.’ ‘Mummy.’ I don’t have a kid. No this isn’t happening. […]

Bat Shit Crazy.

I must live in the moment. I don’t want to go back in hospital. I just can’t. I must live in the moment. I must take deep breaths. Think rational thoughts. I must not freak out. What can I hear if I close my eyes and take deep breaths? Yes everything is ok. I can […]

Banana’s in Pyjama’s. (Are not Actually that Rare!)

‘Can we get a man in?’ (OH NO SHE DIDN’T!) I carefully and quietly murmur this, knowing that I will somehow have crossed the line between Venus and Mars, in an unforgivable way. I immediately avoid eye contact as his head whips up, and look instead with feigned interest at the murky water slowly seeping […]

Postnatal Depression. (The Boomerang Effect.)

It has been 2 years to the day. Years which have flown by like an airborne crisp packet sailing turbulently past the maternity hospital window. ‘Look! Prawn cocktail!’ I pointed from the delivery bed, ankles up around my ears, unable to grasp the severity of what was about to happen, as drugged up as a […]

Therapy, Tantrums and toothpaste.

The sun is shining, frustratingly directly in to my right eye, through the murky double glazed window hanging like a mass produced hotel painting depicting a token scene of freedom, from just above my left shoulder. Outside, the biting wintery bluster is blowing the forest of trees bordering the mental hospital in uncontrollable reckless abandon. […]

Level 10, Space 46. R2W

Thursday the 22nd of September 2011 is a date which has been looming in front of me, taunting me with its ever so slow creeping arrival, ever since Tuesday the 13 of March 2010. I had clambered slowly up the 12 flights of bitter cold, rock hard and dirty, concrete stairs heading towards my car […]

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 […]

The Mosquito effect.

It was while I was driving to McDonalds for a sneaky Drifter Mcflurry at 8ocklock on Tuesday evening that I decided I would probably hold off on the whole killing myself thing. I hadn’t put much thought in to the actual event other than thinking perhaps I would leave a note describing how I would […]

The cow, the club, and the crazy person.

Three things happened this week. Well ok, that is not entirely true. A million things happened this week, but I am not sure you would want to hear about me washing bottles one hundred and fifty times (my fingers are permanently wrinkled and I am permanently wet around the stomach area (messy washer/crap sink, you tell […]
