Conflict. Discrimination. Violence. Murder. Abuse. Prejudice. And a virus that threatens all of humanity. All in all 2020 has been crap and will probably continue to be until its over. I hope that all of this coming to a head means that society is being cleansed and we can move forward with better changes inContinue reading “Lockdown Life: Everything has gone to sh*t so here are some memes”

Lockdown Life: Recharging 🔋

This week was hectic for me emotionally, from being so low I wanted to disappear to so high I felt I could do anything. Today I am absolutely drained. I had planned to do some cleaning but I ache and feel really lethargic. To be fair I didn’t really stop at all yesterday, I wantedContinue reading “Lockdown Life: Recharging 🔋”

Lockdown Life: Being Okay With Not Being Okay

I’ve not been doing well today. I woke up from a 12 hour sleep but still felt lethargic and wanted to go back to bed. I’ve been really snappy all day and was mean to my sister when we were out (to be fair though she had yelled at me, yay siblings) When I wokeContinue reading “Lockdown Life: Being Okay With Not Being Okay”

Lockdown Life: The Want To Disappear

Trigger Warning: Dark thoughts, mentions of Trauma I was awake early this morning for no particular reason. My eyes were burning from exhaustion yet I couldn’t seem to get back to sleep.

Growing Up With BPD

Trigger warning: This post talks about self harm and suicidal behaviours When I was diagnosed with BPD at age 18 a lot of things fell into place. When I showed my mum a leaflet about the diagnosis she was able to link a lot of my behavior to the disorder. Fair to say we bothContinue reading “Growing Up With BPD”

Starting over is f*cking hard

I didn’t mention this before but I’ve started at another new college to study business ; I want to study it because it could open so many doors for me professionally and I do want to start my own business as well. What I don’t want is to be bullied or judged or gossiped about whichContinue reading “Starting over is f*cking hard”

DepressionDiaries: Can’t Sleep… as usual

It’s nearly 4 in the morning and I’m still awake. Maybe I shouldn’t have slept during the afternoon and gone out instead. This morning my mum woke me up to call the recruitment people about when I would start. The Girl on the phone (who was clearly new) basically brushed me off saying they onlyContinue reading “DepressionDiaries: Can’t Sleep… as usual”
