My 5 Favourite Youtubers

kathleenlights Kathleen Lights got me through the move to Darwin. I used to spend hours lying in the air conditioning watching her videos. Her channel is all about beauty and makeup, but the biggest selling point is her personality. Watching an endless stream of her videos made me want to try new make up looks,… Continue reading My 5 Favourite Youtubers

Mental Health Mondays: Losing Interest

On the weekend my boyfriend and I were watching American Gods (which is an alright tv show, by the way). There was a character on there who was upset a lot, not showing any emotion, feeling that everything was just a bit pointless. My boyfriend kept saying how annoying and unfair to other people she… Continue reading Mental Health Mondays: Losing Interest

My Boyfriend Bought a Bonsai

I love plants so much. They are my favourite thing to go shopping for, and the first thing I like to buy when I'm feeling down. At the moment my house is full of plants. I am lucky to have lots of natural light where I'm living at the moment, so every room has greenery… Continue reading My Boyfriend Bought a Bonsai

How I Keep My Energy Up

As a Depressed Person™, I spend a lot of time being tired.

Mental Health Mondays: Seeing A Depression Specialist

Long story short, the Prozac has not worked. 24/7 leg cramps that made it incredibly painful to sit or stand or move or lie down put an end to that one.

I’m Trying Really Hard

I'm trying really hard to love the location that my partner and I are currently posted at. Or at least to like it. We've been here for six months now, which is almost as long as we were at our last location, but it still feels like I haven't settled in here. I've found so… Continue reading I’m Trying Really Hard

I Quit My Book Club

I just wanted to write this quick post today to share with you my news - I have quit my book club. Actually, I have quit both of them. If I'm being honest with myself, I stopped going to the first book club I joined because I couldn't be bothered reading two highly intellectual books… Continue reading I Quit My Book Club

Mental Health Mondays: Putting the Pro in Prozac

I've been speaking about the experience of coming off anti-depressants for a few weeks now (here and here), and now comes the time to start talking about my experience with starting a new one. This is the fourth anti-depressant that I've been on in my life, and all of those in under 18 months. Safe… Continue reading Mental Health Mondays: Putting the Pro in Prozac
