Fired for having depression? The stigma of mental illness

March 30

This post is going to be very personal on a serious topic so it won’t be my usual venting, vulgar-language, type of post! So if you came for that, apologies, click off and come back when every other word is “fucking” again.

I have been away for a long time and in between a lot of my posts there are long gaps. I like to blame it on general life issues but that isn’t the truth. The truth is that I have been struggling with severe depression and anxiety, on and off, for many years. And it pains me to have to say it in this day and age, but no, it isn’t your typical teenage angst attention-seeking cry for “help”. The word depression gets thrown around in such a blase manner these days that sadly a lot of the gravity of it has been lost. It isn’t just when you feel sad. We all feel sad from time to time. It’s a natural and normal emotion. This is crying for no reason. In fact not only not just crying, but sobbing. It’s struggling to get out of bed. It’s where washing yourself takes so much effort that just doing it is an achievement.

The Total Stupidity of Humanity: Part One!

February 20

Let me just start with this: Obviously if you’re reading my articles, you’re clearly not stupid! (wink wink!) Or maybe you are…. it’s not for me to say. And if you were, you probably wouldn’t realise anyway so don’t try and figure it out. And please don’t make any contact with the rest of humanity. PLEASE.

The Cinema: How to be a dick in a few simple steps!

October 10

Let’s start this post with a warning: There WILL BE a lot of swearing in this post because this is about something that pisses me off. If you don’t like this, best close the page and move on as you certainly won’t enjoy what’s to come.

So…. the cinema. Most of us enjoy going to the cinema right? AND THAT IS THE FUCKING PROBLEM! Because most people shouldn’t be allowed in the place until they’ve had lessons in manners and etiquette. I mean, you’re going to watch a film with a load of other people who want to the see film as well so having a bit of respect isn’t a big ask.

My favourite TV Shows so far…..

June 19

I’m going to prepare you for this one. It’s going to be long! I wanted to write a post on some of my favourite shows that I’ve seen or am seeing so far. Some are recent, some are old, some are quite possibly the best shows ever made and one or two may be shows I just love for sentimental reasons.  There will be some shows missing from this list. I haven’t seen (yet) The Wire, The shield, Homeland and some others so if you don’t see these in the list, this is why. Remember, this is my opinion only and we all feel differently about things. However, if I have missed a show and you think it is one worth seeing, please let me know about it in the comments. I appreciate any suggestions on how I can happily while away the hours of my life! Just to clarify, the shows are more drama based, not comedy as I feel like comedy shows should have their own list. I might do a post later on my favourite comedy shows so watch this space!

DISCLAIMER: There will be SOME spoilers but I will try to be somewhat cryptic so as not to give everything away.

Anyway, let’s kick things off with my number 1…..

I am a girl who likes to write. Not particularly about anything informative, just about my life. I write about what I like, what I hate, and anything else I think of that I want to say. I like poetry and renaissance plays, but that is not just who I am. I would like to be a poet, but that does not mean that everything I write will be a poem. It is just a blog for me to take the habit to write, whether it’s poetry, fiction or just  plain bullshit. C’est moi, et c’est tout!
