I’ve hit a wall. I didn’t blog at all yesterday and I don’t know why, except that I don’t feel very much like myself right now. I’m finding it difficult to put words together. I have no idea what I want to say. I feel like a mess at the moment. There are moments when […]
A newborn baby trusts people implicitly. Because they are so dependant, they have no choice. One of the most wonderful memories I have is looking into my newborn son’s eyes and seeing the complete innocence in them, the total and innate trust in me to take care of him. To me, it’s interesting that we […]
Life’s just full of crap and I’m fed up with it.
I am a stranger to myself. I don’t know who I am, But I don’t like what I see. I am completely alone In a prison made of glass. People won’t stop looking. I am full of pain, But hearts break every day. So what?

There were two things I was terrified of about my unknowable future when I was growing up. I was scared I’d never meet ‘the one’ for me, and I was scared that I wouldn’t be able to have children. I was thinking about this today, about my two private adolescent fears, and I realised that […]
I love days that don’t hurt so much. This is one of them. Oh, how beautiful life can be when mental illness isn’t making you want to escape from it!
I’m in a building full of people but I feel invisible. Nobody can see me, nobody knows who I am. I’m like a ghost, gliding through life feeling empty. My face holds a smile even as I fight the tears in my eyes. A perfect balance; nobody can see the pain. But I can. I […]
