‘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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Screw You.

The gun has gone off. Its offensive and obtrusive noise ringing out through all of our lives, whether we want it to or not. The race to survive December, for those with depression, has commenced. My hands were pressed against the asphalt, my voluminous arse stuck in the air, my chubby thighs ready to break […]

… (Back from Rock Bottom.)

I accidentally killed a fish, dropped a tweet or two from the back of a police car and somehow, ended up with the most garish set of acrylic nails I have ever witnessed. I mean, I can’t even look at them directly. They are that horrific. And I chose them. My head is quite clearly […]

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 […]

SuperBoy.

It is not every day your 3 year old son drops his jeans in the middle of a very busy post office, and asks a bewildered and slightly fearful 80 year old man, if he wants to see his ‘little balls.’ And for this, I am grateful. It is every day, at the moment, however, […]

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 […]
