Last week I had a comment made on one of my old posts about my eating disorder – which has since been deleted. Someone took it upon themselves to ask me how I had the cheek to still write about an eating disorder when I’m now “fine” … “Fine” “Fine”? Fine. People with eating disorders and people who are in recovery are never “fine”. Eating … Continue reading Things you should never say to someone who has an eating disorder.
My lovely friend Ida tagged me to write a letter to my brain. LOL let’s see how this goes. Dear Brain, What are you playing at? Why after 6 years of being medically fine have you decided it’s time to fuck about?! It’s fine though I understand. Everything couldn’t be too great for too long right?

It’s safe to say that I know a thing or two about being manic. Not manic “ahh I’m so stressed” but manic as in “ahh I have no idea what I’m doing right now”.

When you walk onto the running floor every girl looks and you can tell by the look in their eyes that they feel threatened. You’re the real version of a “instagram fitness model” and you damn know it. I lost my confidence big time this … Continue reading To the girl at the gym
You’ll notice as of recent my blog has been extremely quiet. This is because reality has hit me super hard. I have two essays due in early July with Open University, work is very busy at the moment and I’ve just started on my Bipolar medication. Not only has my blog taken a hit but the gym has as well. My Bipolar medication totaled me at the … Continue reading Madness Update
Today. Today’s been different. Today’s been kind. Today is the first day in over a year that I have felt slightly like myself again. Today I’ve spent the majority of my day smiling. After seeing my psychiatrist on Thursday it’s really hit home that I’m going to be fine. Every bad day I’ve had has been down to an imbalance of chemicals in my brain. 2018 has … Continue reading
Yesterday I attended All Points East (APE) festival at Victoria park in London. I won’t lie, going into this festival I was extremely anxious because I was putting myself in a position that was full of all things bad for me, minus the music of course.
