“Mum, I feel awkward”

We have made a good start to the new school year; getting back into the normal routine, at the moment things have been calm and less pressured. I promised myself I would just take each day as it comes, not to try as hard and go with the flow. This morning, while we were waitingContinue reading ““Mum, I feel awkward””

Mental Health Walk

Today I decided to go for a walk with my partner and daughter; I know its good for me and that it really helps my mood, so why do I stop doing it. Once I get going it’s great, but trying to persuade myself to do it……………. not so great. It was a lovely day,Continue reading “Mental Health Walk”

Lavender – Its a Sensory thing

Purple is my favorite colour, have I ever told you that, it is one of the colours that have a calming effect on me. I have a purple Journal, which was intentional as I use the colour purple to help reduce my anxiety. It’s only in the last few months that I have realised thatContinue reading “Lavender – Its a Sensory thing”

Tribe

Sometimes you just need someone who totally gets it, without the need for an indeepth description or explanation. Don’t get me wrong, my friends and family are great, they make an effort to understand, even when they don’t they will say so and are still supportive. It is hard when you haven’t experienced something yourselfContinue reading “Tribe”

Empathy and Sixth Sense

Last week I found A YouTube Video by Dr Tony Atwood called Good Mental Health for Autistic girls and women, it describes what I call Emotional Noise down to a T. In a much better way than I ever could. It was a “WOW” moment, a moment of realising that it is actually a thing,Continue reading “Empathy and Sixth Sense”

Whether it is mental health burnout or autisticContinue reading “Experiencing Burnout — My Upside Down Life”

Feeling Good

I don’t seem to have much time to write or read many blogs at present; life has become increasingly busy, what with the course, school run and all the other daily activities there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day. But, you know what, im actually enjoying it. Life is feeling pretty good,Continue reading “Feeling Good”

Remember Who You Are

I used to think that my struggles with my Mental Health meant I was a failure. I would compare myself to the people around me who seemed to have worked everything out and living their best life, I longed to be normal (what I thought normal was) and tried to achieve it. I thought becauseContinue reading “Remember Who You Are”

Holding on to Monday

How is it Monday again. This weekend has flown, and although its been hectic and I have got loads done, I still feel as though I haven’t achieved anything. I have spent Saturday and Sunday rearranging the living room and spare room. Thrown out the toy kitchen, which quite frankly has seen better days andContinue reading “Holding on to Monday”

The End Of Therapy

What a week this week has been; its taken several days to get into the swing of Home Learning, but I think we have started to get in to a routine now. We still have no Snow, how unfair is that, although to be fair I don’t know anyone else who wants the snow toContinue reading “The End Of Therapy”
