So over the last two weeks I've had a lot to think about, a lot to consider after my last EMDR session in February. Yeah, the one that I wrote about at the very end of my last post. I think it was in the last week of February, and it appeared to, or at … Continue reading Letting go
So it's been a couple weeks since I got diagnosed with both joint hypermobility and fibromyalgia, and my god, it hasn't been easy since then. Not just because of the reality of having two "bonus " illnesses to deal with either. I've had a fibro "flare" to deal with, which frankly, is fucking nasty. It's … Continue reading Fibro anxiety… shattered
So it's been a while. A few things have happened. I have started (have had 3 sessions so far) some therapy for my undiagnosed PTSD, called EMDR. EMDR is eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing, and from what I've been told by my therapist, and from what I've researched myself, is basically allowing the brain to … Continue reading A few words
Roll back to December 20th 2018. I was not in a good way. I've said before that Christmas time is usually not the best time of year for me with my seasonal affective disorder and all but it wasn't just that. My proverbial stress bucket had well and truly overflowed. So many stresses going in … Continue reading Not well, one year on.
No one ever died from talking about mental health, but too many have from feeling like they couldn't talk.
As a bit of a follow on from my last post, and the part about my past, the last year has been, at least mental health wise, rather up and down. Anxiety isn't predictable as such, I can't tell if next Wednesday for example I'm going to have 'a bad anxiety day' far in advance … Continue reading History
Ok so this is probably not what you would class as a normal blog post from me but I wanted to do something a little different this time, sort of like a letter (hence the title) to you, the person reading this, that I might have unknowingly upset or offended, that I didn't mean to … Continue reading A letter to you…..
At the moment we're only a few days from Christmas, should be a happy time right? Not for some of us unlucky sods. At the moment, I've been signed off sick thanks to my old friend anxiety returning with a vengeance. On top of this I've been ill with what started as a chest infection … Continue reading Exhausted
So today has been....well.....I dunno So today I had a migraine. Not unusual you might think. I had one yesterday too which is strange for me. Both times I took my prescribed migraine meds - sumatriptan. Now apparently it's known that there can be interactions between citalopram and sumatriptan with sumatriptan decreasing the efficacy otherwise … Continue reading Migraine
Great title right? Anxiety is an arsehole. Anxiety is a fucknuggeting fuckface. It fucks with your brain, emotions, self confidence, self esteem, self belief, basically everything. It's a nasty bastard that seems to swoop down on you like an eagle spotting a fleeing mouse, bringing you down from 100 to 0 real quick in some … Continue reading Anxiety is an arsehole
