Hello to 2016 and sort of a new/old direction for this blog. These MHM posts will continue, with links to the videos but I won’t link or blog about the book videos anymore, though I may do the odd review on here too. Anyway, to today’s topic, very relevant for January. Resolutions. Specifically, how the […]Read more "MHM: Resolutions and Depression"
This week I’m starting my series of ‘self care’ vlogs with a talk on how your ability to give a shit about your physical appearance and cleanliness changes and how odd it is to start caring about that when it’s literally impossible when you are ill.

Here I go into a little more depth about cyclothymia in general (not too much as I’m no expert only an informed sufferer) and […]Read more "MHM 2: Cyclothymia"
Here we go. This was supposed to start last week, but technical difficulties kind of got in the way. MHM are set to be almost entirely vlogs. They’ll be informal, informative (hopefully) and chatty (though not too much). I’ve started here by going over my diagnoses so that anyone who watches these who is suffering […]Read more "MHM AKA Mental Health Monday"

However frightening it may initially seem to open up to someone and […]Read more "Monday Musings…On mental health issues."
