Natural medicine


(A picture of flowers, so they never really die)

A little something about me, I've been taking anti-depressants for the past two years on and off. I know why my depression started, and can recount to you the exact moment standing in my kitchen when I broke down and told my Dad that 'I wasn't happy.' It took a long time for something to be done, because so often a down moment can be interpreted as circumstantial. And so a few months later when I hadn't managed to bounce back as quick as they thought I might have, off to my GP we went. He presented me with a quiz with a sliding scale of how I felt at times, and honestly it felt as though I was taking a Cosmo quiz for depression. It felt too easy to convince him I was unhappy, and it made me wonder whether handing out anti-depressants has become too convenient.

Complaint-free for 21 days



 (vIa A Conversation On Cool- the raddest blog ever.)

It's official, three posts in seven days! It's pretty standard for most bloggers, but seeing as I don't exactly fit that mold, allow me to have this small victory. I've been feeling more inspired than usual to write, and part of is due to the fact that I've been observing more than usual. I've observing my behaviour not only towards myself but to others, and I've found a few things right and wrong about what I've been doing.
