Mind In The Dark : Good Things That Have Happened This Weekend

One of the things that I don’t think many people know about me is that I live in a constant state of severe anxiety. It affects pretty much every moment of my waking and sleeping (yes, it gets me in my dreams too) life. The moments when I don’t feel suffocated by the pressure of… Continue reading Mind In The Dark : Good Things That Have Happened This Weekend

An Evening Walk

I had an alright day yesterday. Feels uber weird writing that. But I did. Well, until about 5pm when my mood went downhill too fast for me to try and snatch it back. I'd wanted to go for an evening walk, catch some autumn textures with my camera and watch some spiders spinning. I'd been… Continue reading An Evening Walk

You’re Doing Ok, Wolf Heart

It's my birthday today. I'm 33. I'm also perhaps the most depressed that I've been in as long as I can remember. This depression that I've been experiencing isn't the same as what I'm used to though.

My mood was also as low as low could go, so my doctor wanted to see if something else could… Continue reading When I Can’t I Do

Thinking In The Dark : When It’s Hard To Go On

It's hard to move forward right now. I think it might be the side effects of my new medication. Or it might be the weight of the past six months bearing down on me. Bringing down to the kitchen the cup of tea that I made last night and didn't drink because I was too… Continue reading Thinking In The Dark : When It’s Hard To Go On

Queen Of Wyrd

2019 so far? Honestly, what the fuck was that? Every month for me has had its nasty troubles, and I find it somewhat remarkable that I’m still here writing to you. (There are some fantastic memes that have helped me through the quagmire of 2019 so I think I’ll do a post just for them… Continue reading Queen Of Wyrd
