• Health Anxiety Explained

    For many years I’ve written about health anxiety, my experiences and how it makes me feel. A lot of the time people are described as hypochondriacs when they worry about their health, I feel like this is an ‘old term’ for it, because doctors don’t diagnose people with hypochondria but for the sake of this post let’s get some definitions under our belts shall we; From the NHS website: “Health anxiety (sometimes called hypochondria) is when you spend so much time worrying you’re ill, or about getting ill, that it starts to take over your life.” All of this is that I speak about is from my own experience but…

  • Struggling During a Pandemic

    Now that’s a title I don’t think you’d ever expect to write in your life. A fucking PANDEMIC?! It’s been months and months and it still seems unreal. At the start of it all my mental health really wasn’t too bad, really I was in the best place I’d been for a long time. I wasn’t too deep in my health anxiety, my body confidence was high and I was happy. I haven’t been too scared by COVID this entire time, which is surprising considering my anxiety is surrounded by health. I just felt like it gives you more of a reason to try and live your life to the…

  • Who is your soul mate?

    Good evening to you all… Well, firstly welcome to my new platform! We’ve moved over, we’ve taken the plunge, we are getting serious here aren’t we. Anyway… In my life I have thought I’ve met my ‘soul mate’ a couple of times, was it my first ever boyfriend who I loved from the age of 14? It wasn’t. Or was it my recent ex boyfriend who I thought I’d spend forever with? It wasn’t. I don’t actually believe your soul mate is necessarily someone you are in love with, despite the idea that this is the case. My soul mate is my best friend. Someone I spend most of my…

  • You Bring Me Home.

    Hello everyone, it’s been a bloody long time hasn’t it? If you weren’t aware I’ve been spending a lot more time focussing on my YouTube channel and I seem to have abandoned my original outlet – this blog. If you want to watch me ramble, you can do so hereAnyway, on to todays post… Look at my new little tattoo, isn’t it so perfect?  I’ve done posts in the past about my tattoos and their meanings and this one is the one which people might be like “why the fuck have you done that” – you know what they say, don’t get anyone’s name tattooed on you. I learnt that…

  • Mental Health: A Boyfriends Point Of View

    Hello everyone! Happy Sunday, here we are, part two of my three blog posts with my loved ones on mental health. This time it is with my boyfriend, Dan. I have spoken about Dan so many times on this blog and in real life, he is my main talking point. I’ve spoken about being in love when having anxiety before here – it’s fucking hard. It is so hard, to put someone through something when they have the choice to leave, it’s hard to try and hold on to someone. But with Dan, I don’t feel like that although I will always say to him “you could have a much easier…

  • My 2018 Goals

    Hey everyone, firstly I want to wish you all a Happy New Year! I have a good feeling about this one…especially after the shit show of 2017. What the fuck was that, universe?! I’ve got a few things I’d like to do and achieve this year and I am confident and motivated to do them! Here we go 2018… Start Yoga I’ve wanted to start yoga for a long time now but have either not had the motivation or confidence to do it. I feel like it’s going to improve my mental health so much and make me feel so well in general. My best friend Ben gave me such…

  • Acceptance of your Mental Health

    As I grow I am really learning to accept my anxiety for what it is. I guess I would see it as a friend, a weird fucking friend who wants to destroy your life but you can’t let them go because they’ve been your friend for so long. So long that you don’t know what you would do without them, because they seem to act like they know what they’re doing, they’ve seen life in a different way and they want to keep you safe. This is bullshit, they don’t want to do any of those things for you. They are like a jealous friend who sees that you have…

  • You’re Doing Okay

    Hey everyone! Firstly I’d like to say a Happy New Year to you all, let’s make it one full of positivity and love and all the good shit. I’ve slacked so much on the blog lately and I’ve said this a billion times on here but my motivation has been fucked. I have been poorly over Christmas and not wanted to do a thing let alone blog. I’ve got some blog ideas in my head so they’ll come shortly, you know, the usual 2017 goals, BLAH BLAH BLAH. For now though I wanted to just talk about what’s going on, where I’m at, how I’m feeeeeeeeeling. Hi my name is…

  • Positive Tuesdays: The One When I Went To Ireland.

    Hiiiiiii guys, it’s Tuesday it’s time to be positive about the previous week. I’ve had a great one but also a very, very tough one in my little brain. It’s a strange feeling when you’re stuck in your recovery, when you also feel so lonely but you have amazing people around you…you just need those extra ones to show they care. OKAY NO, this is not the name of the game, if I want to be a negative Nelly then I will make a whole new post. Anyway, this week was full of fun! To be fair I missed the previous week because I was in Dublin last week, so…

  • An Open Letter To My Eating Disorder

    Hello everyone, You may wonder why I’m making something like this public, why I’m putting it on the internet? You know me, I’m so open about my mental health and would do anything I could to raise awareness and to get others to help themselves or help those around them. If this helps one person have more of an insight, if it helps one mum have a slight look into what is going on in their childs mind then that’s all I want. I want to help, this small platform could do that, or so I hope. Here goes… Dear my friend and my enemy, I say friend loosely…my enemy strongly.…
