“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.

OK, so there are also a lot of outside factors asContinue reading “Creating Your Own Peace”

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.
