Mental Health Awareness- just how aware are we

I used to believe that other people could see my Anxiety or see how Low I was feeling. Anxiety makes me feel awful and I can feel myself shaking so I was certain everyone else could see it.

The Little Jar of Sunshine and Rainbows

The Little Jar of Sunshine and Rainbows, my daughter chose the name, began its life as The Worry Jar.

In a weird sort of way, blogging gives you a sense of belongingContinue reading “No One Will Believe You”

Schools Out

Well, that’s school finished for Summer, much to my daughters annoyance. She would much rather be at school.
