Depressed day

I’ve been trying to look after myself a little better. I’ve had my hair and nails done, today I’m having eye lash extensions. And yet all of this is a front as I feel empty. I don’t know why, I have lots I should be thankful for. I have zero energy, I don’t care reallyContinue reading “Depressed day”

Vacuum of life

Such a strange feeling that is not really a feeling at all. The emptiness of one’s self; like a huge void which neither pulls or pushes. When the day starts with such thoughts you know you are feeling, you just don’t want to admit to your own mind, the creeping vine of depression, working it’sContinue reading “Vacuum of life”

Small steps…

I wanted to share some positive news! Last I blogged, I wrote about our struggles here coping with teenage depression and suicidal thought patterns. Here is me hoping and praying, that we are making steps in the right direction. Having gone from complete breakdowns and self harming to smiling, chatting and being more sociable, weContinue reading “Small steps…”

Three steps forward, two back

Just when you think a corner maybe turning, you’re thrown right back. We have a system in place at home. Like a traffic light system but with processes. So if you feel low, you don’t use your phone, you don’t sleep alone, you never are alone in a room, you eat with everyone else andContinue reading “Three steps forward, two back”

I AM WALKING ON EGG SHELLS! AUTISM?

My daughters always has social problems be it with school or large gatherings. I just thought she had a school phobia, the doctors didn’t think anything of it as she grew up, just normal child behaviour. Sometimes we had tantrums in shops, like most parents experience. I always cried outside her door at night wishingContinue reading “I AM WALKING ON EGG SHELLS! AUTISM?”

Ramblings of a fraught mind

Life’s so good at throwing you a curve ball; whether it be family, health, wealth. Just when you think life’s getting better, your routine which you count on so much for your own personal sanity is turned upside down. Your home no longer feels the clean tidy safe place it usually is. You are sharingContinue reading “Ramblings of a fraught mind”

Awakening to pathological attention seeking in partners

Your always on your phone, who is that? Is it…? Why do they call all the time? I don’t like …., what did you make for tea? I don’t want that it’s disgusting. I do everything here. Have you spoken to .. recently? I do everything for you? Don’t start that again. Are you listeningContinue reading “Awakening to pathological attention seeking in partners”

Having an ‘off’ day

We can’t always expect to feel fabulous 100% of the time. It could be illness, hormones, what you’ve eaten, how others treat you and an innumerable amount of other daily things that can knock your boat. But how do you bounce back? Let me tell you about a boat rocking day and how I managedContinue reading “Having an ‘off’ day”
