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. The tides of grief feel different somehow and I don't know why. And these tides terrify me. Every… Continue reading You’re Doing Ok, Wolf Heart

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

DIY In The Dark : Icicle Earrings

My moods have been cycling so rapidly recently that I don't know which way is up. I have to repeatedly ask what day/date it is and I'm zoning out all the time. Waking up crying has become the norm and I'm being referred to a heart specialist because the medication I've been on for ten… Continue reading DIY In The Dark : Icicle Earrings

Thinking In The Dark : Living With Anxiety

Anxiety and I go back a long way. A very long way. Such a long way that I struggle to actually remember a time in my life when I wasn’t anxious. When I’m not anxious though (or in a depression), I fucking radiate joy. I really do. Part of it is to do with the… Continue reading Thinking In The Dark : Living With Anxiety

Mind In The Dark : The Healing Wild

Today has been fraught with anxiety and a despair so deep I’m astonished that I managed to haul myself out of bed. My patience has been as thin as a new moon and I’ve been shaking for most of the past twelve hours. My chest has been so tight it's as if someone has bound… Continue reading Mind In The Dark : The Healing Wild

A Poem For All The Women Who Have Died To Live

I wrote this poem back in 2017. Facebook reminded me of it today. I've read it over and over again this evening. I've needed to. I hope it reaches another woman who needs it too. To All The Women Who Have Died To Live To all the women who have lived and died and lived… Continue reading A Poem For All The Women Who Have Died To Live

I’ve Opened A New Shop : True To My Wyrd

Last week I spent about 50 hours prepping designs and setting up my new shop True To My Wyrd, which explains the deathly silence here. But let me tell you, I hadn't had so much fun in fucking ages. I actually felt guilty because I was enjoying myself so bloody much, eventhough the majority of… Continue reading I’ve Opened A New Shop : True To My Wyrd
