So over the years I have always had trouble with my scalp. It’s very sensitive, it scabs up and it gets sore and itchy (and bleeds, I know.. gross right).. dandruff has been a pretty constant thing in my adult life. I was always pretty embarrased about it but no matter what products I used, […]Read More So good it’s noughty.
‘An urge. A desire. Passion. These feelings fueled us to want to try more plant based products. Everyday more new products were available and we wanted to try them all but that seemed impossible.

Does anyone else feel silly doing these? Maybe it’s because it’s so new to me but it can be oddly confronting, telling yourself you deserve good things, that you can do the things you want to, get what you want out of life. But, I am going to try and keep it up. We forgot […]Read More Affirmations
Happy Bank Holiday Monday to you all, or just Monday if it’s not a bank holiday for you, from me and the spot on my chin that won’t go away!

I wanted to go out somewhere nice with the dog, somewhere we would have to drive to so we could both be in nature and have fun exploring.

So, I’ve had a shower for the first time since Sunday. Is that gross? Sure. Did I smell? Absolutely. Does knowing that change anything? No, depression doesn’t care, and you pretty much just feel worse cause you know you’re being gross. I brushed my teeth, put some undies and a face mask on (my skin […]Read More Showering is hard these days.
I’ve had 7 sessions, and my scores have gone from 9/10 to 5. This might not sound like a lot but it is a huge difference in my day to day life.

It’s been […]Read More New diagnosis, acknowledging and asking for help with PTSD – part three.
I started using deodorants, body sprays and anti-perspirant’s in my teens. It was fairly normal for everyone at school to be walking through a cloud of body spray/perfumes in the corridors or anti-perspirants in the changing tooms. We were all so coated in this super sweet perfumed nonsense that I honestly wouldn’t have been able […]Read More Thinking of making the switch to natural deodorant?
Opening up was difficult after holding everything in for so long, but it was also freeing to finally tell someone. It was an emotional conversation, I cried, we cuddled together, and once I was done speaking we stayed that way for a while.
