A sound rang out at the beginning of this month that instantly reminded me of my mind set a year before. July 1st, Canada Day fireworks.

Hearing them this year reminded me of the inner alarms I’d felt alongside them exactly a year before. Last July began with uncontaina...

One of the most important aspects of this year for me has been learning to look back as a way to understand myself better, and to look forwards and outwards to understand and help others better.

Right now I'm looking at a design I created and re-created in different way...

“I was terrified someone would see me. I was also terrified that no one would”

Introduction:

At the end of March, I had the chance to share the story of how I learnt to share my story.

⛅️Up in the air in my self-care chair!!!! Sometimes, when everything feels up in the air– I go there too! It helps me to see that it’s okay for all my things to be up there just for a little bit. It reminds me I can take time and gather them up and get grounded alongsi...

My schedule involves the bright, loud, neon pink of “Legally Blonde the musical in the evenings, and what I’ve very affectionately named “depression camp” during the days. That maybe seems odd to be stating, but I do think it’s pretty important to say. I say it because...

Today I’ve been thinking a lot about contrasting emotions. This is mainly because of the huge amount of both fear, and courage that I get from facing things that scare me. This is really apparent in topics I’ve already been quite open about, such as… being open. It sca...

I felt like I lost my ability to get out words again for a while over the last few weeks.
I eventually found myself back in hospital. At first, I saw it as an indication that all of my work to find stability over the last few years has been useless. But then, I began t...
