I chose my name for my blog with the utmost care. I have mental health problems, I think I have always had them, its just now that I am starting to put labels on them. I hate the term label, because with mental health not one person is the same, but it makes the medical community feel better. I enjoy Β being quirky most of the time, its just the 10% of the time which I dislike.


I started this blog to make people aware of the challanges I have faced and my continuing disbelief in how a benefit system treats those who are in desperate need. Please feel free to follow me, or even if you want to reblog, go right ahead.


I can be sarcastic, which is hard to convey (although I do give it a damn good try) I also try and put in a bit of humour because if I don’t laugh then I would probably end up in a looney bin.

When I started this I didn’t share my name, but since I originally wrote the about page, people have asked, so my name is Trina

Extra update, want to know who is who then read this


I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I have done writing it so far

  6. Welcome to the club, By conventional standards I’m crazy all the time. Well, probably people think so because I’m different and don’t seem to age especially mentally. There is no difference between me now and me when I was 7 years old. Don’t worry be yourself. I don’t know what your mental problems are but if they bother you remember that the mind is like a computer and can always be cleaned and reprogrammed.

    I reckon the only non-crazy people are the ones who embrace their own crazy and make the best of it!

    Yikes I just came across an invite to take part in a blogging award that you sent me. Went into spam queue because it’s got a link in it I think. Damn modern technology, I am not very good at these things!! Anyway even though I don’t normally do awards and challenges, I am very happy that you thought of me. Apologies for coming across rude due to this mistake. Keep up the great work on your excellent blog. Big love ❀ xxx
