SUMMER GOES TO PARLIAMENT

Yesterday the Yahoo email fairy sprinkled sparkle over my otherwise pants day. I didn't write about this yesterday because I was SO EXCITED I actually felt SICK. It was an email from the media dept. of Mind charity in Londoninium town. I'm a... Continue Reading →

WHEN YOU ARE THE DARKNESS

What to do when you are the darkness?  Do you rid the world of your darkness..... By removing yourself? Separation of the bond between person and the glue of society. Stickiness un-peeled. Strings in the orchestra reveal the emotion of... Continue Reading →

BPD: ESCAPE TO THE RAINBOW

The grounding process begins. I'm digging deep and securing my emotional roots again. Today has been blissfully easy and private. I have happily hidden, barring a few conversations with selected people of lushness. I needed that after two very special but also... Continue Reading →

HOME AT SEA

I'm a cerebral person who very much lives in my head, rather than on terra firma. Of all the characteristics of my very weird quirky personality, one word I simply cannot apply is the adjective "grounded". I am absolutely as ungrounded as you... Continue Reading →

UNICORN sparkle *

I'm high. I'm low. I'm fast. I'm slow. I soar, then I'm grounded and stuck fast. Free as a bird, until the cage door clinks shut. Sociable butterfly meets reclusive hermit. Introvert who can extrovert like the best of them on red... Continue Reading →

FOREVER FRIENDS?

Phewzers (Wow and Phew and zers combined). I'm finally feeling okay again :) Today has been a GOOD day. It started off with a tinge of mood wobbliness, but the day has gone from strength to strength and I have... Continue Reading →

BACKFLIP

BACKFLIPS are the thing of talent show dance troopes....the visual motions that make the crowd get excited. When applied to mental health recovery, backflips are what I like to call what other people term 'relapse episodes', to make them seem... Continue Reading →

THERAPY BEAST

It's therapy day today. I wonder what emotional chaos will ensue today. I just read a brilliant blog post about someone else's experience of therapy, and wished a. I could write like that, and b. that I understood therapy better.... Continue Reading →

WATER ON CHALK

Gymnasts can't do those amazing things they do on the bars without chalk on their hands. Their hands will slip. They will lose their grip. They may even fall to the ground and do themselves an injury. Gymnasts are not... Continue Reading →

MEANDER TO NARNIA 

A brief meander through my thoughts....... Heavy fur coats in a wooden wardrobe part left, right and above, and I'm met with the chilly air of Narnia inhaled up my shocked nostrils. I need mind clearing via writing. The run today... Continue Reading →

SMASH

I smashed it today on my 10k mental health charity run for Tyneside and Northumberland Mind 🙌 A new personal best of 1 hr and 3 minutes! I pushed myself to my absolute physical limits and I couldn't be prouder!... Continue Reading →
