  • Evening everyone!🌚
-It’s been a tricky few days in my mind recently. Like a constant storm going round and round🌪 I’m starting to feel really inpatient because I just want to feel better but it’s taking such a long time, and the longer it takes the harder it is to stick with it.🧚🏻‍♀️
-I know it takes time, and I really am trying but mentally I am finding it extremely difficult being here. I know things can always be worse, and I’m forever in the habit of comparing my situation to someone else’s and telling myself ‘it’s not that bad’ when in reality yeah it’s quite bad right now, and I need to allow that.
-One month ago today I was in hospital for a few days for a severe overdose and I ended up being resuscitated. I’m absolutely horrified at my actions and what I’d put everyone through. I want to get better so badly, but it does not happen overnight. Struggling tonight which is why I needed to be open about it to get it out my head. I hope everyone is okay, is fighting if they’re struggling and holding on to some hope. 🕊🙏🏼
-10 days until Christmas and my goodness it’s flying by😩 counting down the days until I see my girl when she’s back from her holiday! Hurry up home 😩 @paris_firmann ❤️
Lots of love Suz 🧡

  • Day four of mental health awareness week. 
The things that mental health makes the hardest are the easiest things. 
When my depression plays up, I find it hard to get out of bed, let alone get showered, dressed, make breakfast, go to work or have a ‘normal day’ 
Self love is bubble baths, face masks and pamper days, but what real self love is simply looking after yourself. 
Today, I had my hair cut. This may be normal to some, but for me it’s a massive thing. Depression makes everything hurt, not only mentally but physically.. even wearing clothes hurts. Having someone cut your hair can feel like torture. Bless my hairdresser for putting up with the amount I have to cancel. But today, I had my hair cut. It may sound simple, but it’s a big win for me; especially now that I feel like myself again.

  • Laughing at my boyfriend getting into ridiculous positions on the floor to get this shot. 🤣 Hey guys! How are you all doing? I spent my night writing some blog posts last night, so now I have 4 scheduled which is handy! 🥰 I love feeling prepared - maybe I’m just a control freak. 😂 Today’s going to be a chill day I think. It’s hair wash day (finally! I only wash my hair once a week so it’s in dire need!) then I need to moisturise my body and all that jaz, might even do a face mask and have a full on pamper sesh... 🤔 Think I’m going to write a full list for what I need to take in my hand luggage on Tuesday when I go to amsterdam - I’m so bloody excited!!! 😀 Does anyone have any recommendations of places to go or things to do?! Let me know down in the comments. ❤️ #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #depression #anxiety #blogger #blog #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthbloggeruk #bblogger #wordpress #quote #happiness #inspiration #anorexiarecovery #edrecovery

  • Hello my wonderful little fairies. ✨💫 I just wanted to pop on here to remind you all how important you are. You, reading this, have made such a huge impact to everyone around you. You may not believe me, but trust me - you really have. Every single action you make effects the people around you in some way, whether that’s good or bad. You were put on this earth because you’re a god damn king/queen who can fight whatever obstacle comes their way. No one was put on this earth by accident, everyone has a purpose. Every single person has something they’re meant to achieve during this time on earth, and you will achieve it - even if you don’t know what it is yet. You will make a difference; your existence alone makes such a huge difference. You may think you’re just another human being floating the world wondering what to do next... but trust me, you’re so much more than that. Because of you, someone has a favourite movie, book, place to go or song to listen to. You are the shining light to people’s lives, and please don’t ever forget that. You are important. ❤️ #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #depression #anxiety #blogger #blog #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthbloggeruk #bblogger #wordpress #quote #happiness #inspiration #anorexiarecovery #edrecovery

•
🙏First of all, you need to let go of any guilt, this is in connection with my previous post about "mum guilt".Guilt is our own worst enemy and usually the only person we are punishing is ourselves. Honor where you are and how you’re feeling, think of it like you’re in a big open field right now, its blank and empty, but thats ok because there is a lot of growth and learning that comes from planting good seeds.
Hitting rock bottom can honestly be one of the most transformative and amazing experiences of your life - take it from me ive been there!. Contrast brings clarity, so don’t beat yourself up!🙏
•
🌱Restore- I like to think there are two kinds of reconnecting with yourself there is standard advice (paint your nails and meeting with friends!) to deeply soul restoring.
.
Although all effect, the soul restoring has worked wonders for me and that is in the form of a journal, keeping notes of what im feeling and things that have happened..note it, move on.🌱
•
🐦Throw out - Re-establishing the connection with yourself, you really don’t have the time to be surrounded by negativity. That means you need to clean out your instagram feed, turn the drama off your tv (yes that includes Dr Phil and Jeremy Kyle!), and distance yourself from people that bring you down. The news - although great for keeping us all up to date, all completely negative energy! For now... Get rid! Facebook friends who constantly share dramatic content or air their dirty laundry..CYA! .
Anything that makes you feel bad needs to be gone. That includes your self pitty posts - , online or to other people. QUIT IT.🐦
•
💛Be grateful - I know the last thing you want to hear is be grateful, when you feel like you have nothing to be grateful for. 
But the truth is that gratitude energetically shifts your reality and begins taking you in a new direction.
Think of 10 things you’re grateful for every night before falling asleep. Cant think of 10?.. try harder! Try it and see what happens.💛

🌾I really do hope my tips have helped you today, please remember these are tips that have worked for me, everyone being different.What do you have to loose by trying?🌾

  • Y'all, it's been a weekend. Mental pain can be hard enough to cope with, but add in a big ol' dose of physical pain and boy is it tough. I've had no babies, but if it's true what they say about kidney stones equaling the pain of labour... well, I'm out. Luckily, I'm still here, thanks to cuddles from my two favourite boys and a yummy helping of pasta for a treat meal tonight.
〰〰〰
And yes, Mum, I'm drinking lots of water.

  • Painting. Call it busying yourself; call it therapy; call it an excuse for getting messy; call it art. Whatever you call it, I like it.

  • I always said I’ll be 100% honest on this account and my blog, even if it’s not the most positive parts of my life, so... Today I’m not feeling my best. I feel quite unmotivated which made it hard to get out of bed. I feel drowsy and just want to go back to sleep tbh but I have so much revision to do and planned to write a blog post for Wednesday (I already have tomorrow’s scheduled, thankfully.) My exam is on Wednesday and I was mega prepared until recently because I’m just too tired to do anything. I’m starting to panic a bit because I have work tomorrow and I don’t even know if I can force myself to revise today... Ugh. I forced myself up though and Tidied my room a bit. I’m going to make myself a coffee and dinner and try to start some revision. Just because I woke up feeling low doesn’t mean the rest of the day has to be that way. I’m in control of my actions, not my illness. 💓

  • SWIPE
These were taken 48 hours apart. 
The first one? I had the energy to make myself feel pretty, wash and brush my hair, shower, get out of pjs and put make up on..
2 days later? Mental illness hits; I was so dissociated I can’t even tell you what I did, I ghosted my friends because I wasn’t with it enough to reply, I didn’t have the energy to brush my hair, let alone shower or get out of slobby clothes. 
This is what mental illness is, one day you can feel completely normal, and the next like you’ve been hit by a train. 
I like to take pride in my appearance, it makes me feel better, so when I have days (or in this case, weeks) where the most I can do is shower i feel so shitty about myself. 
Now? I take every day as it comes, I look after my mental health and physical health; and if they’re acting up I won’t give a shit what I look like because in reality it. Does. Not. Matter. 
If you don’t have the energy to get yourself up and ‘presentable’, then don’t. Listen to your body and your mind. Take days where you allow yourself to feel what you’re feeling, because masking it and pretending it isn’t there will only make it worse. 
This is the reality that a lot of us with mental illness have to deal with, but we’re doing our best.
