I have been writing New Year’s Blogs for four years now and I think this one may be the hardest for me to write, so I’m going to format it a bit differently. You see, the first nine months of my year were taken up by pretty much just one thing and since completing it … Continue reading New Year’s Blog 2019!
The past few weeks, my life has felt very uncertain, even my present feels unknown to me. So in order to regain a sense of stability I've been relying on the god-send that is hindsight. My past is after all relatively certain. Over the last two years I have managed to overcome the majority of … Continue reading I’m Naughty and Proud!
The past three days The Chase's Anne 'The Governess' Hegerty has been miles out of her comfort zone. Camp mates and viewers may be feeling admiration and empathy for her but I'm pretty sure very few can truly understand what she is experiencing.

I envy those who move freely, Part of the hustle and bustle not even stopping to think. It is suggested that … Continue reading 10,000 Steps
In the past I've received disapproval from my parents for discussing smoking online. But I have always promised myself that I will be 100% honest when writing and in recent weeks I have been relying heavily on cigarettes.

Becoming germaphobic is common for me in highly stressful situations. My mum's questioned me multiple times on how I'm ok … Continue reading Punching Without a Glove
The last few weeks I've not felt good. I've had more seizures than I'd like to admit and have been feeling lower than I have done in years. Medication has never really worked on the seizures but for the past two and half years it has done on my depression. The other night I felt … Continue reading Into the Abyss
This past week both ASD and epilepsy have been in the news a lot. It’s a strange feeling as for years I've wanted to see both of my conditions nationally discussed but being part of the discussion hasn't had the positive effect I thought it would. With the announcement of the AIMS-2-Trials I've spent the … Continue reading Discussing the AIMS-2-Trials
