The dangers of misinformation!

So if you haven’t guessed it by now, I’m an Endometriosis sufferer. (Of course you’ve guessed it, I talk about it in like, every post!). Recently theres been so many posts in the media about Endometriosis (which is great of course!) but a few days ago there was one entitled something along the lines of “Woman nearly DIES from Endometriosis”. I’ll be honest, the articles I saw were posted on the online versions of numerous rags such as The Sun and The Mirror. Not exactly the most believable papers in the first place. I also recently saw an article that was entitled “Period cramps are as painful as a heart attack” – (to be honest, there is some truth to this, but the articles is just written in the most RIDICULOUS way!).

Now I’m not going to lie, I have had those insane, severely painful cramps where you think its the end of your life and you hear the woosh of Satan carriage as he arrives to pull you down to the fiery depths where you have to live out eternity in your own Read More »

Mental Health and the Menopause

So I’m 27. I’ve got a great boyfriend. I’ve got a cat. I’ve got a great job. But..I’ve got Endometriosis. I’ve got anxiety. I’ve got depression.

And I’m going through the menopause.

Yes, you read that right. I’m going through the menopause. Induced, not natural. Its temporary, but man is it tough. I never expected this to happen but after 2 years of no Read More »

Uncertain times call for uncertain measures…

Those of you who know me in real life know that I can be pretty wild. I know I’m considered an extrovert, like a drink or two, and have always been one of the last ones standing on a night out. I pretty much lived by ‘Go Hard or Go Home’. That is, until recently.

As some of you may know, I used to work in a restaurant. Scratch that, I used to live, breath and work a restaurant. I was there at least 5 days a week for a minimum of 52 hours a week, and said restaurant was 45 mins away from Cheltenham. On top of that I would go clubbing at least once a week (normally twice), see my friends at the pub at least once a Read More »

2017 is the year of…what?

So 2017 has started, and what’s happened so far..? Well, luckily, there hasn’t been any major celebrity deaths (something I’m sure 2016 will be remembered for, for a very long time). Trump has be inaugurated to The White House, and Obama and Michelle are out *sobs heavily*. Woman’s March took place on Saturday (the day after Trump’s inauguration). Theresa May has taken a trade gamble with the EU and the single market. And its only the 23rd of the month.

In my reality, things are a little less imposing, but none the less, they’ve happened. Black Milk are now charging postage, which will mean customs will beΒ a definite. Jack has gone Read More »

Immobile self care

Hey guys,

So I wanted to talk to you about all the things you can do to make yourself feel awesome! More often than not, when you’re feeling down, having a bad mental health day, not feeling 100% and all in all are in a bad place, then your doctors, magazines, friends, family will give you tips on self care. Number 1 tip – EXERCISE. Now if you can exercise, do it, it honestly will make you feel heaps better. But, if like me, you have episodes where something gets in the way that you have zero control over i.e. a chronic illness, then there are plenty of other things you can do to improve your mood. Its just finding the right balance!

Hey guys!

I’m back, with a snazzy new name and some pretty awesome ideas! Those of you that know me, know I love mermaids, hence the name change. A lot has changed since we last spoke…where do I begin?!

Ok so maybe the biggest news of all…I got a kitten! She’s my baby, she’s called Luna and is just the cutest little thing you’ll ever see! She’s just past 5 months, but being the runt, she’s still as diddy as ever!Read More »
