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? I just want to say we’re going to be … Continue reading A letter to my brain
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”. I realized that as I’ve documented my Bipolar journey I’ve never wrote about the mania side of it.

To the girl at the gym, You make me self-conscious and you make me realise everything that’s wrong with me. 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
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. Festivals to me before bipolar were the place where I could drink till my hearts content, do substances that … Continue reading All Points East Festival

So here we are, at the end of a bank holiday. I haven’t broken my non alcohol ban and I’m completely sober! Accomplishment I think so! Well done Rosie! The bank holiday worried me. Normally on a bank holiday I’d go out on the Friday night with a bunch of friends and get off my nutter – yes I’m using the word nutter. Wake up … Continue reading My first bank holiday sober
