A Little Extra – Blogger Turmoil

It’s getting closer and closer to midnight here in foggy England (yes, it’s just like the movies) and I’m trying to unwind the negativity in my head, so that I can get to sleep soundly. My feet ache from a late waitressing shift, my medication is slowly starting to kick in – and yet the […]

Passion For The Clinically Depressed

The Importance of The Bell Jar

When the older generations say “People weren’t depressed in my day”, or “What are you depressed about? You have everything.”, it can be easy to judge them harshly.
