    Dealing With Doctor’s Trip Fears

    The doctor’s office: usually thought of as a white room with a clinician in, sitting in the middle, an air of authority around them, and you as the patient they don’t want to see. However, this idea is entirely wrong, and realising this is the first step in making sure your next doctor’s trip isn’t as bad as the last one. Doctors are just people like the patients they see, and they don’t hold any kind of power over life and death; they’re there to help after all! A fear of the doctor is extremely common to have, so you’re not alone in your mounting tension and anxiety when it…

    Just because depression isn’t visible, doesn’t mean it’s not there.

    Depression is something that the majority of us will suffer with at some point in our lives. Whether we realize it or not. It comes in different ways for all of us. Some of us just think we’re feeling a little low. Some of us feel like life isn’t worth living anymore. My experience. When I first went in about my mental health, the Doctor wasn’t sure whether I was confusing depression with anxiety. Now I look back on it, maybe at the time I was, but I’ve definitely had an element of depression. I battled for a very long time with my mental health, and I was stubborn enough…

    #YoudNeverBelieve

    I am so excited and proud to announce that I have taken part in #YoudNeverBelieve. What is #YoudNeverBelieve I hear you say?

    The Only Person You Should Try To Be Better Than, Is The Person You Were Yesterday

    It’s been quite a few months since I last posted anything on here, and after talking to the lovely Nikki over at keepingstrongandmovingforward.co.uk, I decided to sit and write a post again! I’m now working full time which is amazing, I only started the hours last week, and I’m absolutely exhausted, but looking forward to almost double my part time pay at the end of the month! I feel like things are slowly coming together at the moment. Back at the end of last year things were pretty dark for me. I felt really poorly a lot of the time, I drank way too much and I just lived to pay…

    I admit it, I’m depressed.

    I haven’t posted much recently, apart from my weight loss posts my blog has been pretty much dead. I guess I’ve been feeling a little lost. I have so desperately been trying to work on myself, not just losing weight, but my general happiness. If I’m honest, it’s rare at the moment if I think to myself “it’s been a good day”. I’m not entirely sure on why I’ve been feeling like this. Maybe it is to do with my appearance, I think at least some of it is anyway. I look in the mirror and truly hate who I have become, I can’t understand how anyone can find me…

    My Anxiety – Let’s get honest

    Anxiety kicks in at the completely wrong time!! It’s taking me a lot of bravery to post this, as it is a very personal matter of mine. I find it embarrassing, and most of all, I feel like it shows I am weak, but I have had enough of feeling like this now and I need to get it out there! Maybe some of you will relate to this! I’ve suffered with anxiety for years now, but it’s getting progressively worse. It all started off with my emetephobia (fear of vomiting). My anxiety would only flare up if I felt sick. Then when I’d not long had dinky, we moved…
