Straight From The Horses Bedroom

They were the best of times, they were the worst of times… I totally feel that statement right now, I guess it’s a classic sentence for a good reason. The closest thing I have to ‘stable’ right now is what my horse’s call their…

I’m Blue

So, what do you do when you are feeling like an impulsive, rebellious teenager? Answer: Whatever the hell you want. So I bought a stack of new clothes and dyed my hair. Going ‘bright’ is something I have toyed with over the years, but…

Non-Compliant

In the past, I have been less than compliant with the medication regimes and advice of psychiatrists, but I listen to Meredith. I have always complied with her, I have always been a good girl. I have a ‘cancellation’ appointment today with the wonderful…

Up’s n Down’s

My reflection shows the reality of several sleepless nights spent choosing creating, wishing and building over nurturing my body and yet my mind chooses to ignore it, my thoughts are too busy rushing and tingling, alive with promise and expectation. So much to do…

Jamoalki Guest Posts!

I am lucky enough to have the lovely ‘Depressed Not Dead’ pod caster extraordinaire jamoalki come on here today (and hopefully again in the future) to share some of his story with you! I will also give a quick *Trigger Warning* here as the…

Race To Oblivion

This week has been hard. I’m not coping, not like a proper person. I can’t even pin point the exactness of my fuckedupedness right now. But things seem to have escalated quickly and I think I might actually be having a mixed manic episode…

Yesterday

I’m typing this from my bed. I am supposed to go out in an hour, to pick up Miss 8 from her Nana’s house where she has been staying the past two nights. I want to get up but I am dizzy and nauseous,…

Dear Hubby, I’m Sorry I Tried To Kill Myself

This is my latest article over at The Mighty, I hadn’t shared it here before but as you may gather from the title, it’s a letter I wrote to my wonderful husband apologising for my 2015 suicide attempt. He has never actually read the…

Flowers and Distractions

Part of me trying to force myself to be happy at the moment is distracting myself even when I can’t really be bothered. A friend had a baby shower that I had to drive into Canberra for on Saturday afternoon anyway and since Canberra…

Kicking Down Doors

It’s the start of the spring school holidays here, and depression seems to be trying to descend upon me which feels ridiculously inappropriate because its finally warming up, trees are growing leaves and there are blossoms everywhere. This means I should be happy now,…

Chance Encounters

*Trigger Warning* I keep having chance encounters with strangers that deeply affect me and they are always straight after my psychology appointments, I’m trying not to involve ‘magical thinking’ as my Psychiatrist calls it, into these coincidences but honestly, it is getting ridiculous. Just…

The Same Sex Marriage Debate

In Australia at the moment we are in the middle of a postal vote, where as a country we get to decide whether or not same sex couples are allowed to get married. Frankly the whole thing is a bullshit debarkle by the liberal…
