Be careful

I feel a bit conflicted about my last post. It was good to finally say it all out loud but then there is the judgement that comes with it. People always say it’s good to talk but there are things people don’t want to listen to. I think disclosing a part of ourselves can beContinue reading “Be careful”

How I got here

I was in my mid to early 20’s when I was diagnosed with bipolar. I asked my psychiatrist…why has this happened, have I always had it and what has caused it. He told me that it could have been triggered by a traumatic event. When I was 18 I started going out with this guy.Continue reading “How I got here”


So I came off my meds at the start of the year. I was feeling so much better and my mindset felt differently. I had started exercising again, I felt relaxed and I hadn’t self harmed in weeks. When I am on meds, it always makes me question, is it them or me that isContinue reading “Ahhhhh”

**** off

My life is never not hectic, 3 young kids sees to that but there is good hectic and bad hectic. Christmas and New Year were good hectic. Full on with the kids but lots of fun and laughter made it a great couple of weeks. This week I wouldn’t say it’s a full blown wobbleContinue reading “**** off”

New Year

Had a really good break and for the first time in what feels like a very long time, I was totally switched off and relaxed. I am back exercising again and enjoying getting aContinue reading “New Year”

Last Post

So this is going to be my last post of the year and maybe for a wee while. I am truly on switch off mode and just need a break from things for a while. Thank you to everyone who has visited my site, it’s just ramblings of my mind but if it has helpedContinue reading “Last Post”


I guess lockdown allows the world to slow down. There is no fear of missing out on anything or watching the world pass you by. I’m looking at it as a way to escape from everything and everyone and to embrace the splendid isolation. “Sometimes, you need to be alone. Not to be lonely, butContinue reading “Alone”


Finally made it to the holidays. It’s a great feeling. Although it is still uncertain when we will be back, I’m not going to think about that for now. I’m going to concentrate on enjoying a break and spending time with my husband and kids. It will be hard not being able to see otherContinue reading “Christmas”


Another trip to the psychiatrist this week and it went okay. My medication has been doubled and I am feeling okay about that. He is confident that it should really make a difference and it is the first medication I have been on that hasn’t given me any side effects. I am feeling pretty runContinue reading “December”
