Well This Sucks!

On the surface my life is really great at the moment. I've just got back from a holiday in Amsterdam, next week I'm off to Southampton to visit a post-grad fair and my creativity appears to be at an all time high. Yet below the skin, there's a massive elephant suffocating me. Now, before you … Continue reading Well This Sucks!

New Year’s Blog 2019!

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!

Into the Abyss

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

Four Seizures, Four Frustrations

The last two days have been extremely frustrating. On Tuesday I had my second Seizure Day since very slightly reducing my meds four weeks ago. Looking back over 2017 the amount of seizures I'd had was the only negative thing I could think of (I intend to write a blog about it once all my … Continue reading Four Seizures, Four Frustrations

I Think I’ve Turned a Corner

Just under two years ago I wrote a blog titled 'Why I Can't Quit'. I have two responses to that blog about two different things so you've got yourself a double blog folks! Now this second part is a bit deeper than the first. When I write aforementioned blog I was in a bad place. … Continue reading I Think I’ve Turned a Corner

Now in the aforementioned blog I mentioned a short list of hobbies that I quit between the age of 4 and 15. … Continue reading Reversing the Quit

Mini Bonus Blog!

Read the main blog first here! After writing a slightly negative blog I tried to end on a positive note and I chose to do so by using the quote 'Smile, It's Tuesday!' This may seem insignificant to most but to me, those 3 words mean a lot. In my first year at secondary school … Continue reading Mini Bonus Blog!

My Life in Similes!

By the time I upload this tomorrow morning, I'll probably be sprint-walking across campus, 5 minutes before my first class starts at 9am! Right now, however, my glands are behaving like a waterfall, my stomach is burning like a volcano and every limb in body is shaking like a high magnitude earthquake! That's right friends, … Continue reading My Life in Similes!

The Night Before it Begins

It's the night before I return to Sussex to start my Master's Degree. It's my 4th year there and yet I'm sitting here fighting a giant panic attack. I've been putting off my packing all day as every time I think about it my heart starts rushing, my head pounding and my stomach churning. There … Continue reading The Night Before it Begins

Rewind Part 1

Right now I'm struggling not to just write a long list of stereotypical similes. The truth is medically the last few weeks haven't been great for me. 3 weeks ago I ended up in A&E after having a cluster of seizures during 2 of which I turned blue or had cyanosis as the doctors say. I … Continue reading Rewind Part 1
