I hadn't planned on writing a post today, but then again I hadn't planned on waking up to the news that Donald Trump had been elected president of the United States. But there you go. With that same logic I’d also like to point out that I don’t usually like to write about politics because … Continue reading My take on ‘President’ Trump
Hello again! So, I hadn't planned on writing a blog post today, but considering it is World Mental Health Day, with the theme of Psychological First Aid, I couldn't not talk about it. Particularly as the reason I started this blog in the first place is because I want to help break the stigma associated … Continue reading World Mental Health Day
So I know I've not written many posts recently, but I've had a super busy few weeks! I'm in the middle of a few posts that I'll be uploading shortly but this is just a short (shameless) self-promotion...please continue. Recently I contributed a story to The Mighty (a fantastic site that shares real stories of … Continue reading When I Overheard a Stranger Say ‘Let’s Pretend I’m Disabled’
Hello everyone (or no-one...depends if anyone reads this), so originally I had started to write this at about 9pm as I was running around frantically trying to pack my bags for my trip to Iceland tomorrow.

I figured I would use this time to write a little post about train stations and technology, because...why not? Yeah I'm still not convinced it'll turn out interesting but still I will continue. It's a bit of a rant … Continue reading What is the point of a ticket collection machine?
As I went up the escalators to the electronics section, a little nervous that I would get something wrong, or set off an alarm or some other ridiculous thing, I realized I had never actually bought anything in a department store before-and I didn't know how to do it.
TW: Panic attacks and anxiety This post is going to be quite personal to me, and to be honest, quite difficult to write. But it's not something that people talk about, as it can be very scary and at times very embarrassing (although it shouldn't be). But I think it's something that should be talked … Continue reading Dealing with a panic attack
So, as this is my first blog post, first let me say that my personal experiences with depression and anxiety are exactly that-personal to me. Everyone on this earth experiences things differently. And that's a really important thing to remember. Although there are symptoms of illnesses that people who have them can relate to, there … Continue reading Why I Dropped Out of University
