Where did my simple things go?

During my recent ‘low time’ (I hate calling it that because it does not express the sadness, pain or fear I felt and well, I am lucky this time was surprisingly short lived, for me anyway) I kept thinking over and over again ‘live your day as if it were your last’ but that almost…

Thankful.

As you may or may not know, I have not been feeling too great lately, my mind is not the nicest of places and I feel rather disconnected. As someone who is naturally optimistic and positive, I hate to write on my low days, even more so with the still thought that people who do…

Right now, my recovery is management.

Just a lot of thoughts really, recovery and possible consequences of Anorexia, where I am right now. I try so hard to write honestly, for my own benefit more than anything else, however, I fear I’ll cause worry or upset but thats exactly what mental illness can cause. I need to know there is no…

Bringing nature inside.

Five ways that nature benefits my mental health without going outside. You may remember a few months back, I wrote the post ‘How nature helps my mind feel free’, a post that some of you resonated with and one, I looked back on and thought I wished I had known the benefits I feel from…

A few new snacks (gluten free & vegan).

I have been a little slack with my free from posts lately but like I explained in my last finding new free from finds each month whilst on a budget is no easy task. When I was first diagnosed with gluten intolerance, I found finding free from snacks quite difficult. It is a lot easier…

Stepping back.

There is so much wrong within the world and whilst I believe in being the change I wish to see, I can see how by constantly trying and feeling as the more I try, the more aware I become of the wrong. I see it everywhere, the news, the headlines and as I scroll through…

‘Just another ten minutes’, exploring the Welsh coast.

A spur of the moment trip took my auntie, Osca, Jess and I, to the sea. We all decided we needed an adventure and with just twenty-four hours between working, it was easy to believe we did not have enough time, but I do not want to live my life like that. Without getting too…

The Florist, Liverpool.

After my last post and a few days of calm, I went back on the train and spent the day in Liverpool, meeting up with a friend. We visit Liverpool every now and again and spend the day shopping or in my case, searching and never buying, catching up and eating, usually sushi but this…

Newcastle, Anxiety & Self-stigma.

Last week I went to Newcastle, after struggling with my joints and stomach for a couple of weeks, traveling is becoming increasingly difficult and so as you can imagine, I was nervous about the five hour train journey but I really did not want to let it stop me. I took along a crutch to…
