Site Stuff I was flitting about the site the other night and I realised that I don't write as often as I would like. I have said this many times over the last nine years (yes, nine) and it gets on my nerves that I don't write as often as I would like. It's ridiculous … Continue reading This and that
The next time you hear or read someone say 'Are you mentally ill?' in a derogatory tone then that might be a good time to remind them that absolutely everyone has mental health. The only difference is that some people have good mental health and some people have bad mental health. It only takes one … Continue reading Talk about Mental Health
I'd like to start this blog off on a personal note. Many people know that Easter Road is a special place for me. It's the one place on this Earth where I feel most at ease. When I go to ER nothing else matters, just what the team are doing on the pitch. Easter Road … Continue reading ER helps me again, we showed Red to racism but we needed to show Reds no respect
I haven't written much about my Anxiety of late and this is because, strangely, it's not been a big part of my life lately. It seems strange saying that after nearly two years of it ruling my life but that's where I am at the moment. I think about it a lot but it doesn't … Continue reading Anxiety doesn’t always run your life
Not satisfied with a quick change I have gone for the full whack. I also want to do this without closing the site down for any reason. All content is still available all of the time. It is driving me slightly insane at the moment as I have to update each individual post to create … Continue reading Site under reconstruction
Happy Monday Blog Followers! I am writing you this as I have made some changes to the site. I am trying to make it simpler over all. Although I am not happy with the background. Want it to be funkier but people still need to be able to read the posts! Anyway, all feedback is … Continue reading Changes to the site!
Most people with anxiety have a "safe place". If you know a person with anxiety and you ask them if they have a safe place they will likely say yes. As part of a group last year we spoke of a safe place and most of the people in the group had one and it … Continue reading A Safe Place
It's closing on two years since I got my real diagnosis of Generalised Anxiety Disorder. I'd known for a long time that something was wrong. I'd waken in the morning with a heavy body. By that I mean a body that is wanting to stay in bed, stay safe and not have to deal with … Continue reading Anxiety and Me
I haven't written a blog for a while. Not because I had nothing to say, far from it, but I just didn't have time. Part of this was due to being ill at the start of the year and more recently there has been a Spring Clean at Fox Manor. Yes, a good old fashioned … Continue reading First anxiety and then a spring clean
What is normal? I'm not sure but if there is such a thing then I have to imagine that anyone who doesn't fall into that category is unique and that is much better than being normal. Normal is something created by those who don't wish to believe there is a problem. So if you say … Continue reading What is normal?
