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!
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 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
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
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 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
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!
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!
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
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
