I WISH YOU COULD…

I wish you could be exactly the person I wanted. I wish you could be here right now. I wish you could comb your fingers gently through my hair, and tease out the tangled mess in my brain and heart... Continue Reading →

SOUL BE YOUR PILOT

Who knows what invalidation means? This isn't a SAT test. I am just not sure how aware people are of the term invalidation and what implication it has in relationships and potential conflict scenarios. The dictionary definition of invalidation is... Continue Reading →

POST-CRISIS GRATEFUL

Whenever things build up to crisis point, people become all important. The power is, I suppose, all in the people. A person or people can often be all it takes to push you to crisis point in the first place,... Continue Reading →

SHADES OF ILL

I woke this morning heavy hearted, and I've already idled away some unknown mindless length of time pondering why it is I feel so crap today. I think I've finally now worked it out. I'm not sure if I'm ill... Continue Reading →

COMFORT WHEN DISTURBED

One of the biggest insults that can be colloquially hurled at someone in conversation; sometimes as a unfunny joke, and sometimes with rancid bitterness is, "you're psychologically disturbed!"- usually meaning broadly that you are 'crazy', 'off your rocker', 'unbalanced', 'abnormal', 'socially bonkers',...

EYES ON ME

Message from a friend sent just now... "I wish for you to see yourself thru my eyes, so you can see you are beautiful and your energy brilliant." After thanking her and feeling touched and uplifted and boosted, I replied that I'd... 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 →

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 →

SHAME ON YOU

I survey the mess and wonder who is to blame, Deceit speaks so loud that truth sounds so lame, Crisis and drama; moth attracted to the flame, Emotions so strong there's no restraint or choice to tame, Feeling so sad, desolate... Continue Reading →

THERAPY BONKERS

Today is a part-sharpie/part-prose post. Today is therapy day, which means I [very predictably] have a thumping headache and feel absolutely drained. Today was really hard, really really hard, and really really emotional and really really intense. There are not... Continue Reading →

MORNING poem

Tap out a poem propped up in bed, Pillows fluffy, I rest my head. I'm no poet but I love to rhyme, It's a totes lush way to idle away holiday time. French countryside living suits me down to the... Continue Reading →

HAPPY TONIC

I'm grabbing some introvert time while I can.  The Americans call this interruption to the usual routine a vacation. The French call it le vacance. The Brits call it a holiday. SummerSHINES calls it "fucking beautiful". I am enjoying myself... Continue Reading →

LIFE, INTERRUPTED

We're here. SummerSHINES is shining here avec ma famille dans le Toulouse!  We left the tarmac in Manchester with high hopes, coupled with much relief on my part that I managed to navigate Terminal 3 with no panic attacks, managing... Continue Reading →

PULL PUSH SWISH

I feel in a state of unrest. I wrote a blog post earlier and deleted it as it was rubbish. When things go swimmingly well I think they will always go swimmingly well. When things go pear-shaped I think they... Continue Reading →
