January



I don't usually do these types of posts but January has been a month. The first month of the year is over and my goodness has it been a rollercoaster.

A Mental Health Conversation with my Mum




Often the conversations I have surrounding mental health are with other people who "get it", so I thought let's shake it up and so was born this new series. In this series, I will have a range of conversations about mental health with various people in my life and what better way to kickstart this series than with my mum. Enjoy!

A look back on 2018





2018. What a year. I say what a year as though its been amazing but in actual fact its been really tough. On January first I started my bullet journal and set myself a list of things that I wanted to achieve. So in this post, I want to share with you the highs and lows of 2018, as well as a thought on 2019.  This may be a long one so grab a cuppa. 

(Trigger warning, talk of weight, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, and emetophobia)

I don't have much to say.



It's been a while since I've found the will to write but as the title says I don't have much to say, and that pretty much explains my absence. So this blog post may not have a point or a direction but instead, it'll be a bit of an explanation of the last month or so, consider it an update of sorts.

Drawing the short straw; born a woman




From the very moment I entered this world I had drawn the short straw.

Student mental health - falling through the net


Student mental health is hot in the press. In 2015, 15,000 students disclosed a mental health condition, but despite the fact that students are encouraged to talk about their mental health, accessing help whilst a student is made incredibly difficult. With waiting lists incredibly long and only living on campus for 7 months of the year, accessing help is almost impossible, that's if you are even accepted. Here is my story.

You are what you eat, a rant about social media



It has been a while now since I lost my spark. My motivation for everything dwindled until even my passion for blogging, my proudest achievement, slipped out of existence and I was left staring at a blank screen with nothing to say. Nothing to say, and it felt, no one to listen.
