The room in which I’m neither awake or asleep

Good evening, settle down quietly whilst you listen to the waves within my neurotransmitters sending complex messages to my delicate frontal lobe… Explore the depths of the darkest roots and the narrowing thoughts depression emphasises. After three months on the Sertraline my anger and impulsivity has been managed with the medication which I am immensely […]

What does depression feel like?

Depression is more than just a low mood, it’s more than a label, it’s more than laziness, it’s not someone’s personality. Depression is the feeling of helplessness, the fighting to be optimistic, the steady humming in the frontal lobe, the sleep less nights accompanied by its neighbour; anxiety. When does biological depression start? How does […]

Mental health Awareness Post

#MentalHealthAwarenessPost Take away the shame of the stigma… Here’s my story of how I defeated my depressive symptoms… In September 2018 my brain changed. I knew something was wrong but I couldn’t fathom what and would think about everything I’ve learnt and compare my symptoms to my prior knowledge. Over the years I’ve had CBT, […]

Measuring moods

One night I sat there contemplating my ‘depression’ thinking why do I feel depressed when I have many things going for me? Why do I experience mood swings and shifts in my perspective? Why I feel lost without a source of comfort in times of need. I thought up an idea as I was researching […]

The difference between ‘thinking’ and mental health conditions

Positive activities completed this morning 💓

Just a normal day, I woke up, made myself a tea, and did some anagrams to gain interpersonal skills and allow myself to think better cognitively. Which lead me with an idea: 1. Create a spider diagram of one descriptive word in the centre that describes your core personality and create anagrams of all those […]

A month on sertraline

My symptoms have calmed down a lot since being on the sertraline and limiting contact with the negative people who hurt me in my past. I’m doing what’s necessary for my health as not many people understand the way our experiences can consume us. I managed to get my negative symptoms under control through drama […]

Depression

Have you ever looked around you and people all stable and laughing, the walls closing in on you, the hallways swallowing your mind whole, like you’re pushing yourself through quicksand, like your brain is slow and grounded, like you have no control over your anger? In the lowest moments do you sit there and listen […]

What side of the brain do you use?

  What side of the brain do you use? The interaction between both is a game of volleyball, a confusing element within its features, a comprehensive account of our genetics and memory processes… Skills are what motivates us. Experience is what shapes us. Atoms. That’s all we are atoms.  

A million pieces of glass📝

The heart weeped. It’s shattered. It’s bruised. It hoped.It looked. It found. It lost. It moped. The tears fell. It’s endless. It’s dried. It’s condensated. It’s hell. The body ached. It’s weak.
