Luxury Anxiety Comfort box, 2018 edition!

You may have seen my previous comfort box, I loved it! However I wanted to make a new one this year, mainly because I’d ran out of chocolate in the box and used up all the air freshener. If I’m honest I’m going to start making a new box every year, I think it’s a great thing to do. When I use it I’m grounded and can calm down and when I’m making the box I’m in the zone and not thinking about all the problems I have going on. What’s a comfort box exactly?? If you have no idea what a comfort box is then you should carry on reading! A comfort is something made up of everything you love! The idea of the box is to hold everything that you hold dear, stuff that makes you smile and laugh and brings back the memories of the good times.…

My Mental Health Diary ~ February 2018 Edition

Mental Health is bloody difficult and I’m not going to sugar coat anything! I’m not looking for sympathy or anything like that when I write these diaries. So please don’t be thinking that, at the end of the day having mental health conditions can be very isolating. A person can end up thinking they’re alone, no one cares and that no one wants to listen. A lot of the time I won’t tell people how I’m feeling because I feel like they don’t want to know or they don’t believe me and think I’m making things up. My blog is my safe place, it always has been and I’m hoping it carries on that way. So I wanted a place where I could talk about my mental health over the course of a month, sure I might not have much to say one month, but sure the next month I…

Stress, the complete biography!

Stress, I swear everyone goes through it now and again. It’s probably one of the most common diagnosed mental health conditions, along with depressions, which also sucks! Although stress is the most common, people aren’t always aware of the many ways in which is can manifest and trust me there are a fair few. I’m still learning about the many ways, although the hard way! I didn’t know the best way to do this post so I’m going to mix and match it. I’m going to do some lists and I’m going to explain a few of them in a little more detail. Why? Because not all of them need a long explanation and are self explanatory. You might recognize some of them and maybe have a little bingo card ready! Low energy, headaches and achy joints, upset stomach and constipation. Lack of sleep, too much sleep, eating too much…

Behavioural Personality Disorder BPD explained, top three common symptoms.

BPD, also known as Behavioral Personality Disorder is something that I suffer with personally. You may also hear it referred to as Emotional Personality Disorder or in short a mild form of Bipolar. I wanted to talk a little about BPD, I know you can find all the information needed on the mind charity page, I felt that it would be better to talk about it from a personal point of view. So BPD, there are quite a few symptoms related to the condition. I’m part of a few groups throughout social media and I see the same symptoms and issues being talked about often. These are the symptoms that I wanted to address. ~ Mood Swings. Mood swings are actually common in a lot of Mental Health Conditions, it’s a serious problem when it comes to BPD however. Moods swings can happen at any time and without warning which…

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…
