What Goes Up Must Come Down.

I’ve briefly said in previous posts about how extreme my mood swings can be but in this one I shall go into more detail. I cannot begin to explain to you how exhausting it is going through every single emotion, multiple times a day and without any warning most of the time. I’m not sad... Continue Reading →

Be Kind.

As some of you might or might not know it’s Mental Health Awareness week.

HELP! I’m In A Crisis.

Help. That word is usually quite difficult to say for those who have suffered in silence. I can remember the first time I asked for help.

Understanding My Mental Illnesses

I guess over the years I had finally started to understand all the reasons why I have depression and anxiety.
