How to help somebody who is struggling.

I got a message the other day, from somebody asking how they could help or support somebod who was struggling when nobody else really knew. The whole thing stumped me a little bit. I usually take any oppportunity to offer advice, as I have a whole load of little bits and pieces of experience and…

How to feel better.

Full credit to Abbie, as I stole this idea from her scribbles of blog titles in her old notebook. But this seems to encapsulate such a lovely and cosy vibe, and I also think this might offer simple advice for anybody struggling and needing some way to ease the pain. Open the windows or find…

A fucked up society.

The stifling smoke of this world’s morality burning up in flames is starting to fill my lungs and labour my breathing. I know I’m not alone in feeling this – there is so much damage everywhere, maybe our minds are slowly developing an immunity to recognising it. The way your brain blocks out certain voices,…

My Christmas Checklist

Hello my loves, sorry for not being the most active in regards to blogging, everything’s been a bit hectic but I am suddenly in a very festive mood as Christmas is fast approaching. *Excited festive squeal*. So I decided to sit down this evening and write a Christmassy little blog for you all, watching a…

Summer Seasonal Affective Disorder (yes it’s a thing)

I have spent the last few summers miserable, irritable and tearful. Needless to say, it was difficult to distinguish whether I actually had an issue with summer, or was simply going through a rough patch with all the other disorders that decided to pop up now and then. Last Summer was quite definitely the least…

Even though it is absolutely one hundred percent normal and temporary, it doesn’t make bloating any less 1) Painful  2) Easy  3) Triggering. When you start increasing your calorie intake, you won’t…

A Day of Fear Food

I posted a photo on twitter the other day and said ‘Recovery, take 5’. I had therapy yesterday and something just, well, clicked. We were talking about how long I’ve been in therapy and how at the end of th day it’s up to me. I can’t rely on other people, and I’m going to…

Am I Sick Enough?

I’ve had a lot going on in the old brain these past few months and I’m just finally getting to grips with the facts that coincide with relapsey periods (I don’t think relapsey is a word but hey). I’m sorry for the lack of posts, and I’m sorry if there are still weeks where there…

A new diet 

I think I have tried every diet on this planet. Especially when suffering with an eating disorder you’re obsessed with finding a way that will result in losing weight faster. I’ve lived off of vegetables, water, apples and nothing. Dieting is everywhere. There are shelves stacked with diet bars, snacks that claim to be under…

Why Faking a Mental Illness is never ok 

Panic disorder isn’t a trend. There is no special treatment with a mental illness. I’m going to try writing this post without starting to violently punch capital letters into my keyboard but I can’t promise that. I’ve put off writing this post for a long time because I knew that I’d just start pointing out…
