Only thin people are allowed to stay dry…

A tale of the emotional rollercoaster you have to ride just to buy a waterproof jacket. I am going to start this story by telling you some interesting (well useful) background information on the sizes of clothes in the UK and how this relates to the size of women in the UK. I will at…… Continue reading Only thin people are allowed to stay dry…

I wear shorts now, shorts are cool

By which I mean, literally cool. It is so hot at the moment that not wearing shorts, especially to exercise is a fast track to heat exaustion. Yes…I mean that sort of cool too 😀 Someday I’ll just walk past a Doctor Who reference… Ok, sorry I’ll stop now and get on with the whole…… Continue reading I wear shorts now, shorts are cool

About yesterdays post…

I thought I’d write a followup post to yesterdays. Yesterdays post was exactly how I was feeling in one moment of the day, well more than one actually, I woke up feeling that way. I felt like I was not really in the world, that I was noone and nothing and I could fade away.…… Continue reading About yesterdays post…

I feel like I am nothing

I sit here broken. I am smashed. I am shattered. I am pieces held together by will power and trousers. The slightest knock would leave me scattered on the floor, ready to fade away. I am nothing. I am no-one. I have no-one I am desperately shouting to make people notice, to make people remember, to…… Continue reading I feel like I am nothing

You may be…… Continue reading Advice for the “well meaning” friend

What if…

What if we lived in a world that genuinely disregarded gender as a way to dictate what people should and shouldn’t do. What if we lived in a world where it was socially acceptable to wear whatever you felt like wearing, skirt/trousers/long hair/short/hair/make up/heels/boots/trainers, literally whatever you wanted without being labelled or bullied for being…… Continue reading What if…

Things not to say to another human… (part 1)

Honestly there are a lot of things not to say to another human. I probably can’t list them all. Things like “oooh that looks like you have an alien living inside you” to people who show you their pregnancy ultrasounds (yes I have said that) comparing babies to parasites is also a no-no… I am…… Continue reading Things not to say to another human… (part 1)

The other side of health…

I talk a lot on here about exercise and physical health. As I started writing this on World Mental Health day it seemed only right that I talk a little about some other aspects of health. I have spoken before about my anxiety (there will be flamethrowers) I am pleased to say that it is nothing…… Continue reading The other side of health…

I’m not what you expect me to be, but that’s okay…

This isn’t a self deprecating post I promise!! In our (and any) Society, certain norms are established by popular consent, and these days, by social media. People are expected to fit into certain moulds, and if they don’t their validity is questioned. It is pervasive throughout society, that if you don’t act/look/feel a certain way…… Continue reading I’m not what you expect me to be, but that’s okay…
