pregnancy update #1

(Originally posted on Instagram) CONT pleased about as my morning sickness was horrible. I only had 4 weeks but the nausea reminded me of when I was first getting used to SSRIs which was quite upsetting, this beautiful life journey being tarred with the same feelings. I was also so ill and upset that I […]

SPAM or why I’ve been so quiet on here

Guys.   The reason I haven’t been on for so long is because I was inundated with spam comments and couldn’t bring myself to sort through it all. I had 5180 comments of which ONLY 4 were real people. 1093 of those were about Viagra.   Anyway, adulting award for me for sorting it out […]

in which i am extremely disappointed in project semicolon

Project Semicolon started a fantastic global movement. You’ve all probably seen the semicolon tattoos and images around, and know that it’s SOMETHING to do with mental health. Here’s why: “The semicolon is used when a sentence could have ended, but didn’t.” That’s really powerful stuff. So powerful in fact that I immediately donated to their […]

I’ll […]

hyper-fixation

General Election 2017. It’s killing me. I’m a hard left, socialist, progressivist and strong backer for Corbyn. Maybe I shouldn’t or didn’t have to reveal that, but I just did. Social injustice makes me so mad. Media bias makes me irate. But people who rock up on election day spouting nonsense make me fume. And […]

a conversation

Sometimes support can come from the most unlikely of places. At work I was asked to take on some more kids, a couple of two-hour sessions on my current days off. I work Wednesday to Friday, as a tutor for children who’ve been permanently excluded, and that is more than enough. My perfectionism and need-to-please […]

hibernation

Hi guys! Do you remember me? I’ve been in hibernation mode, I do apologise. It all started when I started getting busy for Christmas, and Christmas fairs. Then I started some horrific medication. Then I moved house. Then I got dogs. Then plumbing problems. Then Buzzfeed found me. Then work got busy. So. As you […]

three black dogs

It’s been a while! I’ve been so so busy since about November; Christmas, moving and adopting two beautiful doggies. Black dogs, obviously! I’ve always wanted a dog since I was very small. I used to have this tiny little rubber sausage dog that I would keep in my pocket that was called Toby. But the […]
