Honesty about creativity, art, mental illness, grief, feminism, human rights and chronic pain with a healthy dose of sarcasm


I have just been released from hospital after spending 2 months in the psychiatric unit for reasons I’m not ready to share just yet.

Here is me just prior to being moved from the Emergency Ward to the Psychiatric Ward.

I feel overwhelmed almost every minute of every day with every fibre of my being. Overwhelmed. This word rattles round my head and I’m having difficulty putting the overwhelmed feeling aside and just noticing all the beauty and love there is around me. I will get there. I will.

I am grateful to my friends and family for their patients, kindness, and understanding. Wholehearted thanks to you all❤

This is all I can write for now. And that is OK. 

Take care dear readers.

  1. If you’re ever up for it, I would love to hear about your experience at the pscyhiatric hospital. Did it help? Thank you for writing!

    • I have been meaning to write about my experiences (2) for ages but the words to define my experience just aren’t there yet. It’s still too raw. I will absolutely get there though.
      Thank you so much for reading and for your feedback. I had a look at your blog and it’s incredibly interesting. I will have to keep looking out for it. It’s important to show the deep compassion many of the Drs, nurses, and aides put into working with their patients.
