Dear diary. Didn't sleep well again last night and nearly missed the school run this morning as I fell back asleep. The day has just been one mad rush about so far trying to get the baby hears dressed and to school on time and myself off to my acupuncture appointment on time but I... Continue Reading →

Dear diary Im tired today. Not just physically but emotionally and mentally too. I feel like I could just crawl back into bed and sleep for a week. I don't even know whats prompted it as I was fine last night, maybe just didn't sleep too well I guess. Todays classes include marketing and world... Continue Reading →

When my Lee died I had no one to offer me advice, my own Grandmother passing when I were fourteen years old, leaving me with no grandparents at all. This is a conversation I would have loved to have been able to... Continue Reading →

Some days I really hate being the one in charge around here. All the shit jobs always fall on me to do... quite... Continue Reading →


Dear diary What a horrid nights sleep. I kept waking up and always hurt each time. My back and legs are killing me and I can only assume it's the after effects of the acupuncture session I had yesterday. She went a little further with treatment this time and had the electrodes plugged into me... Continue Reading →


Dear diary. It's a funny old day today, nothing feels right. Bears not at work as he has a hospital appointment later this morning and so we've all had a lie in today instead of our usual 4.30am alarm calls. It feels odd tho as I'm tiptoeing about trying not to wake him before I... Continue Reading →


Dear Diary What a shocking nights sleep that turned out to be! I didnt wake much but I feel as if I've only slept for a few hours and had bad dreams for most of them, I feel rotten this morning and Bear seems to have had a similar night. Its a shame really as... Continue Reading →

Dear Diary. Well, yesterday was a complete bust! My car has a screw through the front passenger tyer and by the time I discovered it, it was almost flat; meaning I didn't get out at all yesterday, except for the school run. Ive got to risk driving it for the rest of the week mind... Continue Reading →

Dear diary. Sorry for my absence yesterday, I had a lie in for a change and decided to stay away from the blog for a day, to see if I could write any better on my return... I cant! But the break was nice all the same. Todays mission is to put the house back... Continue Reading →


I stare at the screen in the hopes that something will come to me but nothing does, the medication has killed me. I have no creativity left. Nothing stirs in my brain, the neurons dulled by the high doses of anti depressants and morphine till nothing fires right anymore and I am lost once again.I... Continue Reading →


Dear diary. Saturday morning and I'm up at 5am because bears at work again! I hate this. Why cant we just be a normal family that spends weekends together and sleeps in ect... I shouldn't moan. I know why bears doing what hes doing, I know the master plan, it doesn't make it any easier... Continue Reading →


Dear diary. Ive woken up in pain this morning and Im sure its a side effect of the acupuncture I had yesterday. Two of the spots she stabbed me in set off muscle twitches down both legs and as a result I am suffering today from a severe case of muscle soreness in both of... Continue Reading →


Dear diary. I really need another appointment with my psychiatric nurse, I need to come off these damned antidepressants! Normally not something you would hear me say but these tablets cause so many side effects that I just cant live with any longer. Since I've been on them my whole life revolves around napping! I'm...

Dear diary. I've woke up in a real odd mood. I dont know whether I'm coming or going this morning and I feel nervous for some unknown reason. I dont remember having a bad dream or anything but I'm twitchy as if I'd had one and I just dont understand. Maybe it's just a fluke... Continue Reading →


Dear diary Bear's starting to look really ill and I'm sure it's the amount of hours hes working. I am actually getting worried he will do himself some real damage if he isnt careful but there is an end in sight, we're nearly to the end of our goal and then we can all relax... Continue Reading →

Dear diary Ugh! Didn't sleep well at all last night and have woke up emotional again. Bears just left for work and I sat and cried for 5 minutes when he left because I suddenly couldn't help but be sad. I'm fairly sure it's just left over stress from yesterdays exam but I am scared...

Dear diary Well I can honestly say that acupuncture does nothing for me after yesterdays appointment. The only noticeable difference has been a dull ache at the site of a few of the needle pricks but nothing other than that which is a shame really as I'd hoped it would be beneficial. Today marks the... Continue Reading →


Dear diary Yesterdays exam went exactly as I expected it to... I know I've failed! I answered about a third of the questions and I'm sure I will have got most of them wrong.
