What Makes You Happy?

I have been asked this a few times recently. I know I talk about depression and anxiety but guess I’ve never talked about happiness. The simplest things make me happy. One of my favourite things to do is walk rescue dogs, if you follow me anywhere on social media you will see that I occasionally…

13 Reasons Why Alleged Copycat Suicide

I had no intention of blogging today but after seeing all over my Twitter timeline that a 23 year old man killed himself in Peru and was apparently inspired by 13 Reasons Why. He left tapes, the reasons behind his suicide, just like Hannah Baker. “According to the Peruvian news outlet Diario Clarín, Franco Alonso…

It’s happening again

The best way for me to cope is to blog. It started again a week ago.  My mood is low, I don’t want to do anything. I don’t even want to watch tv. It’s 3:50pm on a Wednesday and I’m in bed with the lights off, curtains closed, just laying down in the darkness. Things…

It’s over. I’m done. Finished! 

It is 100% official, after 4 long ass months I am completely finished with my physiotherapy!!! About fucking time!!!  Went in today hoping that it would be my final appointment and after having my knee checked my lovely physiotherapist said “I mean this in the nicest way possible, go, get out and I hope I…

What the fuck! 

I know I’ve done a few posts on mental health and my story but this isn’t like those ones. The ones where I’m like “yay, I’m feeling great and life is full of sugar drop candy canes”.  I honestly have no idea what has happened this week but I feel so low. I haven’t really…

How I Reduce Anxiety At Night

Anxiety is horrible, I suffer with panic attacks when everything builds up and spins out of control.

I have medication from my doctor to help though I…

Physiotherapy: Week 1

I started my first session of physiotherapy today. It went well considering I was a mess, I looked homeless. Had a bad night, barely any sleep, rolled out of bed at 8:10am. I remembered to brush my teeth but forgot to brush my hair. Left the house at 8:30am, arrived at the hospital at 8:50am….

Home Physio (Video) 

​​ So as the majority of people know, I have a meniscal tear on my left knee. My physio gave me some knee strengthening exercises to do at home. The first one is a static quadriceps exercise. This one I have no problem with at all. You straighten your leg and then bend it, bring…

Depression

Reasons to Stay Alive – Matt Haig Depression is a serious mental illness that affects how you feel. If you know someone who suffers from and you don’t understand it, don’t claim that you do. I have had friends in my life tell me they “understand” what I was going through, when they have no…
