10 years with Anxiety and Depression

Heyy Never thought I’d write this one. I’m still coming to terms with the fact that I’ve hit this insane milestone in something which has genuinely changed my life. Eleven-year-old me was clueless but we’ve come so far, here is a letter to pre-anxious and depressed me.  Dear me, You are eleven, you’re still aContinue reading “10 years with Anxiety and Depression”

It’s okay to be afraid to get help but…

Heyyy I began writing in a depressive state/panic attack yesterday, and I read it back this morning and was horrified. But what I wanted to say was important, I act on here as if I’m cured or in a somewhat better place and though I am feeling much better than ever before I am nowhereContinue reading “It’s okay to be afraid to get help but…”

Heyyyy Not long since my last post but a very important day and also anniversary for me. It is four years since I first spoke out about my bipolar disorder today!!!! FOUR YEARS!!!!

Hi I’m Emily and I can’t have children…

Heyyyy Wow, this post has been a long time coming. I’ve been working on a post on PTSD for so long and it is getting nowhere, I don’t know how long that one is going to take me to be honest. I’ve been working hard all week after my first week in my masters beganContinue reading “Hi I’m Emily and I can’t have children…”

Closure: I’m sorry

Heyy I wasn’t expecting to write this post. I know what spurred it, but I wasn’t expecting to write it. This isn’t a typical post and it won’t be as long as my usual posts because of it. It also probably won’t be my last post like this one, I feel like I owe severalContinue reading “Closure: I’m sorry”

Being a Woman is Exhausting…

Heyyyy I’m so sorry I didn’t post over the weekend; I was literally packed with things the whole of last week and ended Thursday with finally passing my drivers theory after my third attempt of the month. I then went to Center Parcs with my family over the weekend on what I fear will beContinue reading “Being a Woman is Exhausting…”

September

Heyyyy Wow look at me actually managing to do more than a post a week, who knew that was going to be possible. I’ve been particularly lazy recently and though I know that university beginning will knock me back into schedule I’m trying to take matters into my own hands before. I’m also running onContinue reading “September”

Am I thriving on Tinder? How has Dating Apps affected my Mental Health?

Heyyy I’ve had this in my drafts since the start of August, I’ve been toying with the reality that writing this could cause me more problems than show the benefits. However, as previously mentioned I’ve been single for a very long time and so for me dating apps have been a part of my journeyContinue reading “Am I thriving on Tinder? How has Dating Apps affected my Mental Health?”

Bipolar Disorder

Heyyy I am officially in Carlisle!! I finally moved up north and it’s so far been so amazing. Despite barely leaving my flat I’ve felt so positive and shockingly haven’t been overwhelmed. I noticed last night that I was becoming messy and my room was already slipping and so I made a list of productiveContinue reading “Bipolar Disorder”

Suicide Prevention Month

Heyyy I’m going to stop apologising for my posts being scarcer and accept that I’m becoming busier and whilst I’m under this level of stress finding the time to dedicate to writing and making it good is becoming harder and harder. I have so many drafts of posts I’ve began and then realised I’m waffling,Continue reading “Suicide Prevention Month”
