Little Ways I Am Looking After Myself in Lockdown | Lifestyle and Wellbeing

As I am writing out this introduction, I am in a big slump. Big brain slump, big life slump, big everything slump. Little, nasty, biting thoughts keep flapping around my head, and the lockdown blues have really settled in. Full on grey, sludgey, meh vibes. I want to see my friends. I’m aching to see […]

Staying Positive in Lockdown 2: Electric Boogaloo | Self-Care

Anyone else feeling like they are in an Orwell novel or a Black Mirror episode right about now? I know I am.

Antidepressants and Me - Sertraline

Salbutamol and Seretide for asthma, antihistamines and adrenaline for allergies, Codeine and Prednisolone for flare ups, and Sertraline for my brain.
