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. When I went to see my GP she didn't really know what to do with me, and I was so scared that she was… Continue reading Mental Health Mondays: Seeing A Depression Specialist

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

Thankfulness Thursday!

I've been really sick this past week, a combined effect of changing meds, catching a cold, and it being that time of the month. Because of this I've spent a lot of time at home, doing a whole lot of nothing, and feeling pretty sorry for myself. As a result of this, I spent more… Continue reading Thankfulness Thursday!

You Are Not Entitled To My Body

An open letter to the guy who touched me without my permission at a festival on Saturday: I was just sitting down on the grass, drinking my bottle of water, when you called out to me. I turned around and you were calling me over, telling me to come sit with you. You were wearing… Continue reading You Are Not Entitled To My Body

Mental Health Mondays: Changing My Medication

Since my lovely open letter to my anti-depressants, a lot has changed with my mental health. The biggest thing was a drop in my mood and a rise in my symptoms, but I also experienced a really bad side effect. When I took all of this information to my doctor we decided to change my… Continue reading Mental Health Mondays: Changing My Medication

Thankfulness Thursday!

The past week has been really tough for me. I've been dealing with a lot of things to do with my mental health and my life, but I think this has actually made me appreciate the things that are going well for me even more. In my journal this week I've had a few bonus… Continue reading Thankfulness Thursday!

Mental Health Mondays: An Open Letter to My Anti-Depressants

Look, I know we don't talk much unless I can't find you and I'm hunting through my drawers searching for you, but I thought we should talk. I wanted to say thank you for all the stuff you do for me. For helping me get out of bed every day. For letting me sleep at… Continue reading Mental Health Mondays: An Open Letter to My Anti-Depressants
