So, the day I am writing this I am having a bad day. I was sat happily playing with Little Man and my anxiety hit me like a bus. I don’t often feel like this any more; most of the time if I do, it is under control within minutes but today has been a rubbish day. There is no particular reason it is here, in fact considering the week I am about to have I have less to trigger off my anxiety than normal but here it is anyway. Can’t say I am pleased to be reunited with it!… View Post

We need to talk. This relationship thing we have going on, it’s not really working for me. I want to break up. It’s not me, it’s you. You’re a control freak, you completely took over my life, you took from me the first year of being a Mum. You affected me like nothing ever has – that’s not a compliment by the way.

To the people that stared at us today when my toddler was having a tantrum, I caught you all looking at me and my little boy today in the shop.

First of all maybe I should tell you why my toddler was having a tantrum. It was because I wouldn’t let him run around on his own flying his toy plane. Now, correct me if I’m wrong but if you had seen a… View Post

For some people the decision to have a second baby is based around finances, house sizes or work commitments but for other people like me it is about the fear of not being able to cope, it’s about my anxiety. As I have said in other blogs I suffered from post-natal anxiety after I had Little Man. It was a scary time, not just for me but for the people around me as we didn’t really understand what was happening or why. Little Man is 2 now, he brings me so much joy and happiness and I adore being a… View Post
