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 →

LOTS OF LEMONS

Life is currently uncomfortable. It always is, to some degree, at least some of the time. Sometimes it is really uncomfortable all of the time, and other times it is mildly uncomfortable, bits of the time. Happiness is nothing else but... Continue Reading →

MOMENT TO MOMENT

I haven't been in the usual routine today. Why? It is un-seasonally hot in England today. Ergo my fellow tiny island dwellers, including me, go bonkers. We are not accustomed to such high temperatures, especially in the coastal bit I live... Continue Reading →

This is a 'where I'm at' post. Because I'm not entirely sure quite where I am, so am hoping the writing process will allow me to grasp the nettle and see my way through the fog, and all equivalent metaphorical jazz.... Continue Reading →

POST-TRAVEL HUM

I hear the hum of the aircraft, still ringing in my ears, The roar of the car barely hides the rumble of my fears. Back home now to safety. Duvet pulled up, I'm smothered, My silent melancholy, proved not so... Continue Reading →

Today's post is for me...it isn't for an imaginary audience. It's for me. It may not entertain you. You may not agree with it. You might want to skip this one over. This post is for me. Today is Easter... Continue Reading →

THESE DUVET DAYS

My spine slumps, my shoulders sag, my neck aches, my arms are perceived by me as feeling far longer, as though they are weighted down like depression's leaden version of mittens on the end of strings that dangle down the innards of... Continue Reading →

THE PAIN OF BPD

Today is a shocker of a bad one. I doodled for therapeutic purposes... words fail me today.  I just hurt.  summerSHINES At least I managed a 13.2K run 🙌

Present.TSD

I would like to propose an important revision to the DSM and ICD diagnostic bible. I can do these controversial types of things because I'm a mental health blogger, which surely must give me some cyber muscle power (even if imagined), and... Continue Reading →

BEAST OR BEAUTY

I can't do it...avoidance has kicked in. I will NOT go and see the new 'Beauty and the Beast' film. There, I said it. You may wonder why this is important, or even interesting, in the context of a blog... Continue Reading →
