Mental Health

I am an advocate for mental health, being that I struggle with severe mental health issues myself.

I was officially diagnosed in my teens and have spent most of my life trying to find ways to cope. While its not always a hinderance, there are many periods of time when it becomes hard to manage. I know all to well the struggle, and as such I am doing my part to end the stigma on invisible illness.

You can find all the posts relating to my mental health by clicking the button below.

Since 2020 I've also been living with chronic pain and as such I've decided that this part of my life is so big and intense that I wanted to create a stand alone blog. You can find that HERE, though it comes with a trigger warning. I discuss a lot of heavy topics which I wanted to separate from my family life/crafting blog. Often you will see me discussing my health and my disability. I do this as it is a part of me, and that blog is about my life. I spent years hiding it away like some dirty secret, but I have since decided that to really come to terms with it, I must be open about it. I have a chronic illness and I am surviving.
