After yesterdays experience, I am still recovering.


After I typed out my last post, I felt exhausted, it took so much out of me.


Even today I am still feeling really worn down.

Its difficult to try and explain how tiring something as simple as going to shops makes me. I just want to curl up in a ball, if I was by myself that would be easy, but the small child has other ideas.

In a sense this is a good thing, because it means that he is still oblivious to my mental health problems.

I was chatting to a friend the other day, who is going through a bit of a rough time, possibly on the road to depression, I advised her to go to her doctors. She gave me a few excuses as to why.

My harsh but fair point was that I didn’t go to the doctors for years, and because of that (and a few other things) my son is probably never going to have, what is considered a normal childhood.

There is a good chance, that at some point I will be better, but certain parts of my mental health problems are always going to be with me, although hopefully medication will ease a lot of the problems.

As for today. I will try and keep as active as I can, but all I really want to do is curl up on the sofa and sleep.

    Have your time to curl up and just be if you can, if only for a little while. I’m glad to see you back here a bit.

  2. It is so difficult to live life when struggling with mental illness. There are no easy answers. Just do the best you can and prioritize what is important to you.

    exercise, as you know, is best. even a walk around the block. sunlight. endorphines. good luck on this difficult journey. and, as someone else said, immersing yourself in the beauty of nature changes brain chemistry.

  6. Your so brave, and a lot stronger than your probably think, Fighting with your own mind daily is exhausting! I’m a strong believer that the more we talk the more we help others.

    Sorry you’re struggling. Do you reward yourself when you do hard stuff? Chocolate?
