Phrases to avoid saying to people with mental health.

I suffer from Mental Health, something you may have picked up on if you read some of my posts. I have a whole section on Mental Health and anxiety actually so you should check that out. One thing I’m used to is people saying inappropriate stuff, offensive stuff and they don’t even know it. It’s even worse when they know what they’ve said and they don’t seem to care or they still think that they’re right. I mean what’s that all about. So I wanted to compile a list together, and turn it into a blog post. A list that will hopefully help someone not trip up on what they’re saying and make life a little easier for themselves, and because it helps people with Mental Health out a bit so they aren’t being hurt in the process. 1, It’s not just a symptom! I get so annoyed with people…

Melting away Anxiety with Spectrum Noir and Art!

Anxiety sucks, let’s just start there shall we. It never gets any easier and it happens when you least expect it to. Worst of all is how it leaves you feeling after. I have to point out though that anxiety can manifest in all sorts of ways. I get so anxious I don’t leave the house, I can have anxiety attacks when I’m out and want to come home or I can finally get the courage to say something at uni to get criticized for having an opinion, anxiety can strike and I’m in a bad, low mood all day. There are loads of ways in which you can deal with anxiety however and that’s something I really wanted to talk about over the next few months. I want to bring you all the different ways I deal with anxiety, starting with art. I love to draw, it doesn’t mean…

University, 4 things they don’t tell you in the brochure.

I’ve been at university a few years now. In fact I had to drop out of my first course due to the lack of support, that isn’t something we’re going to get into; not today anyway. I have to admit, when you come to an open day the university has a way of making everything flow; they look perfect and you just can’t wait to start. However I’ve a few years under my belt and sometimes that just isn’t the case. I mean if I knew everything I know now when I started things would have turned differently. So I wanted to pass a little knowledge and wisdom onto the freshers and hopefully you’ll learn something new along the way. 1, Freshers flu, it doesn’t stop. If you haven’t heard of freshers flu, buckle up! It sucks, if you’re a fresher you need to pay close attention. Current students will…

Fashion Friday – Movember, my experience with facial hair!

So if you know me you’ll know that I don’t normally let my facial hair grow that long, it is however Movember which means men stop shaving for the month. The idea behind Movember is to raise money for mens health issues, such as prostate cancer; a great cause. Even if you’re not able to raise any money I still believe that you should give no shaving a go, it helps the people who are raising money get noticed more and it’s the team spirit! So I went without shaving, what did I find out about having facial hair. It scratches a little and it feels weird to start with. Sure you find all these sexy guys with beards and stubble and they look amazing right? They’ve probably had all that facial hair for some time though and are used to how it feels, which I have to say does…
