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 […]

The Low Mood

From the naked eye you see a smile A delightful smile of a woman who has everything What you don’t see are the bricks within the decorated walls The bricks that weigh down her emotions The bricks that fall on her heavy as she sleeps You can’t see the bricks she holds within herself So […]

Forest Imagery

Allow your soul to feel the warmth of the summer air as you close your eyes and imagine an exotic beach surrounded by fields of sunflowers and dandelions dancing in alignment with the velvet green grass. Your soul feels passion, it feels delight, it is the symphony of the milk way, an inner warmth that […]

The Isolated Borderline

To the partners of the sufferer. I know how hard you try to help your loved one. I know how hard you try and make communication. The days your loved one curls up in bed not ready to face the day whilst you put food on the table, the rapid mood swings with such emotional […]

The first step in emotional dysregulation and self awareness since my borderline personality disorder decided to take partnership back in my life (this time with cptsd that hadn’t happened before after managing to reduce the bpd to traits over the past three years) as I see things in black and white again, is to embrace […]

What does missing an antidepressant do to your brain!?

If you have a chemical imbalance within your brain, missing one capsule can have a devastating effect on your health and your life. I was subject to this. I was wallowing through life, replenishing my soul, afraid to dream of my shadows, afraid to break the eggshells I stepped upon until I spoke up. I […]

The Marilyn Project

Marilyn Monroe, our historical icon, wore her curves with dignity, her smile with force and her clothes with style. Monroe was abused as a child and grew up with mental health difficulties that lead her to take her own life so many years ago. In the age of social media it’s really important people are […]

Till death do us part

A tree never forgets it’s roots right? Well nethier do people.  Observation is a gift. It’s a resemblance of being open-minded. I’m not one of those people who says “Get over yourself” or “You’re just being silly” if someone opens up to me about a problem. I’m the type of person who understands real world situations and what […]

Have you ever let a friend down because of your anxiety?

I have, and this has always given me tremendous guilt. Guilt because when my brain doesn’t want to co-operate and you’re worried about how you will seem. You just want to apologise to your friend’s but they understand when you’re not well but slowly they begin to walk away from you like you’re a burden […]
