    Taking some me time

    I think we all live with guilt when we take a day for ourselves, it’s ingrained in our society to always be working and grafting even if we are sick. But taking some me time is so important for our mental and physical health so lets talk about it. Last night I didn’t sleep too well, the reason was I was reading, and though I am often reading witchcraft books, this time it was fiction. I have been reading all the Zodiac Academy books and oh my goodness I am hooked they are so so good! So I stayed up late because I didnt have much left to read of…

    How my mobility aids help my pain

    Many people in this world use mobility aids, but today I want to talk about how my mobility aids help my pain. Now if you don’t use them this might seem strange, but bear with me and everything will become clear. I am what is called an ambulatory wheelchair user, this means that I can walk but I do on occasion need to use a wheelchair. This surprises a lot of people who are not disabled because we all just assume that a wheelchair means paralysis or limb loss or something like that. This is mainly because of films and TV shows showing these to be the only reasons why…

    Being social again

    Today I went out with my friend Jess for a coffee and a slice of cake, something we would do from time to time. But after lockdowns being social again feels so alien and especially for me who finds social situations awkward at times. I was never very good at social situations, a fact that now my mom puts down to me being autistic though I’ve never been diagnosed or anything. However, I could always muddle through and have fun with my friends who I could be myself with. I have a lot of really lovely memories of spending time with Jess and her partner paul, and though I always…

    One of those days…

    Yes, today is one of those days, you know when everything hurts and you feel like you could nap for about a year quite happily. So instead of heading to bed, I thought we would talk about it. Most of the time I am able to cope, most days my pain is well managed with my medications and as long as I pace myself I feel ok. But then from time to time, and out of nowhere, there are days like today where the pain pushes through anything I take and I am tired no matter what I do. These days are not easy, and are often not spoken about…

    Living with an anxiety disorder

    I think those of us who suffer would agree that living with an anxiety disorder is a rollercoaster of illogical thoughts and a constant feeling of nervousness. There is not much help given to those of us who have been diagnosed, and so many more people probably suffer without realising. So I thought I would have a chat about it today. So over the pandemic, like many people, I joined Tiktok and started posting videos it is so much fun I really like it and I made some friends. Four witches like me who just hit it off right away, and we formed a coven a place to support one…

    The power that music holds

    My name is Will Crawford, the creative director and founder of quietnote, a company which sets out to make mindfulness and meditation practices more accessible through the power of music. I personally believe that through music anything is possible. To describe a wonderful piece of music in words is near impossible but I’m sure we have all had those goosebump moments where our hair stands on end, perhaps you have even been moved to tears? Our greatest adventures are usually accompanied by a soundtrack. Music can transport us, be used as a tool for expression and help us through our darkest days. I have found that when I speak about…

    ME/CFS frustrations

    It is ME awareness day and I am a sufferer of this illness so I wanted to make a post about it and why we need more awareness and more funding. There is so little known about this illness even now, and it is often thought of as laziness or in our heads just like back in the day when it was known as hysteria. So lets have a chat about ME/CFS frustrations and that it is so much more than being tired. Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) are a functional disorder that we still do not know much about. Years of assumptions from the medical community,…

    Be The Calming Force In The Passing Of A Loved One

    When you have suffered a grave loss, it’s within your right to be welled up with emotion. Maybe someone you loved, passed away recently. If so, then you can feel as if there is a giant gap in your heart. You want something to fill it, but you know that won’t happen. It feels like sinking. We wonder how other people cope with such a loss? Maybe they too feel just like we do, but they have chosen to act a certain way. Dignity in mourning is a really powerful thing. It’s an admirable act, to remain strong, react calmly and do what is right, all while you feel your…
