Well, it looks like I’ve had to move my blogging schedule around again. No, it’s not because I’ve got lockdown brain and writer’s block this time; it’s because I got engaged! Surprise, world!

Salbutamol and Seretide for asthma, antihistamines and adrenaline for allergies, Codeine and Prednisolone for flare ups, and Sertraline for my brain. More specifically, Sertraline for chronic anxiety and clinical depression. Those are the medications that rattle around in my bag and go with me wherever I go. I’m kind of a package deal - “The … Continue reading Antidepressants and Me | rosie abigail
Anyone else feeling like they are stuck in a creative rut at the moment? Oh, you mean the whole of the world feels the same thanks to a global pandemic? Yeah, I thought so.

Four days into May and I’m only just talking about my April favourites! I’m sorry it’s taken longer than usual but I’m going to be honest with you; my anxiety has been here.
