“But you look fine! You should just be more positive.”
People have this idea of what anxiety looks like. They have a preconceived notion of what somebody who suffers with anxiety should be doing or saying. Even doctors have a list of “things” that they expect somebody with anxiety to be doing. It’s part of the stigma attached to mental health problems, because for a lot of people anxiety doesn’t look how you think it ‘should’. I’m one of those people. Continue reading
Eye health is not something that has always been top of my agenda. I didn’t get my first eye test until I was eight or nine years old and that was when I got my first pair of glasses.

But what about Eden? We don’t have any concerns about her vision, but when Vision Express contacted us with some information about keeping sun safe, we swotted up!
We have friends all over the world, some of whom we met through our infertility journey. Despite the warnings as a teen to be careful online and such, some of my favourite people are those that I have met on the big scary internet. A couple of these friends came to stay with us last year, so this year it was out turn to visit them in Sunny Pittsburgh.
It’s that time of year again. Rainbow flags, unicorns, glitter and all things fabulous. There are rainbows all around and companies changing their display picture on Facebook to a rainbow version of their logo. All good, because Pride is just one big party, right?

You need to look after you first before you can care for anybody else. Of course that goes for clinicians, but also for administrators like myself. You can’t do your best work without being your best self.
For Time To Talk Day back in February, I did a mini initiative at work in which I handed out “self care bags” in my department. These went down really well, so Amy and I decided to make the next one bigger and better! You can read about the original initiative here. Continue reading
On Sunday 18th March (it was a while ago. I know, I know, I suck!!) I had the pleasure of joining Three (Yes, the mobile network) and a group of other bloggers on a photo walk around London to compare the camera features on the IPhone X and the Samsung S9 Plus.
We met up with Kellee from Three and Photographer Rob outside Bermondsey station at 11am ready to learn how to do that photo thing.
Full disclosure here now! For me this event was going to be the deciding factor between remaining with my IPhone or upgrading to the Samsung S9 plus As soon as I possibly could. *Spoilers* I’m posting this from my shiny new S9!!!!!! Continue reading
