Therapy is not just for picking up broken pieces

A couple of weeks ago I had some news that really turned my world upside down a bit. I haven’t talked about it much because there is so much other stuff going on, but it’s been a struggle managing my emotions. I felt myself spiralling a bit, like I do every so often, usually whenContinue reading “Therapy is not just for picking up broken pieces”

To the you that feels too much.

Some days if not many, I feel like life is too much for me. Too problematic Too demanding Too stressful Too hard Too expensive  Too ominous So I had a think about how I can break it down, because in all honesty I am all too often feeling as though I am one meltdown awayContinue reading “To the you that feels too much.”

Acute Anxiety.

I can’t tell you why I’ve been feeling anxious lately, not really. I could guess a few contributing factors but I don’t know why it feels so bad, or why when I’m led in bed at night things I did 15 years ago pop into my head and I can’t get them out. Or theContinue reading “Acute Anxiety.”

5 things not to say to someone with mental health problems.

1) But why are you depressed? What have you got to be depressed about. Maybe nothing. Why have you got a cold when it’s warm outside? Getting the message?

Anxiety Behind The Screen!

My experience with anxiety is, or at least has, been a parody of Prozac Nation. Have you ever watched it?
