New Year. Better Me.

2017. I want to say it wasn't a good year but I think a truer statement would be, it didn't end well. I started the year on leave from work for my depression and I am happy that I can say I am definitely in a better place mentally. Every day isn't a good day... Continue Reading →

Insomnia. 

Since my last post I’ve had a few great days. My dad stayed with me for three weeks and it was so good to have him here. We finally had a face to face conversation about my depression and I tried my best to explain it. I’m not sure if I did a good job... Continue Reading →

Bim. 

Who would have thought I'd enjoy being in Bim so much?! Distance does make the heart fonder! I'm going to spend the next two and a half weeks with my favourite person- Kiara.
