Why I Will Never Stop Discussing My Mental Health Struggle



LONELY BENCH

So Mental Health is a huge topic at the moment. More and more people are talking about their experiences and coming forward with their struggles putting the seriousness at the forefront of the topic. Celebs like Beyonce and Justin Bieber are openly talking about their own mental health struggles and now more than ever mental health is kicking back and fighting stigma and discrimination in every which way it can.

So I decided it was time to open up about my struggle a bit more in the hopes that people understand more about it. 1 in 4 people are said to struggle with mental health so in a group of only 4 people, one would have mental health. It's now so common to suffer that you will likely know many people who suffer from it without even ever realizing they did.  I myself can think of many people close to me that suffer from it.  There are many many different mental ailments that a person could suffer from and they even believe 1 in 5 children suffer from mental health issues as well. Suicide is one of the top causes of death and self-harm is more common now than ever before. It does not affect any specific; race, gender, sexuality, class etc meaning anyone is susceptible to mental illness.

Weightloss Wednesday || It Has Been Disastrous

Weightloss Wednesday Series Banner
So for the last few weeks/months, I've been gone. I took a short break (explained here) and so I haven’t done a Weightloss Wednesday quite some time!

Not much has changed if I'm honest. In fact, I've definitely put on weight rather than taken it off. It has been stressful and very busy few weeks and if I'm honest, because I over eat and binge when emotional I have just eaten crap. It was also my Sisters, Mine and my Brothers birthday this month, and tradition is we have meals out for each birthday, so I've eaten out a lot too. It has also been very hot and while most people stop eating in the heat, I'm the opposite. I've eaten more things like ice-cream etc to try and keep cool! 
I seem to be craving sweet food, which is very annoying, The things with the most sugar in and I hate it. I want to be able to say, yes I'm losing weight and feeling confident. I want to have good news to share, but the fact I haven't eaten myself to death yet is great nIws i suppose!

The Best Quotes From 20 Years Of The Harry Potter Series

The Best Quotes From 20 Years Of The Harry Potter Series Banner
Today, 26th of June 2017, marks the 20 year anniversary of one of the greatest stories ever told. Before ever becoming a movie, Harry Potter was a novel, written by JK Rowling. 12 publishers rejected it, and only 1 saw its potential, Bloomsbury, and what started after that was 20 years of magic and love. 7 books and 8 films later and it's one of the best-known stories in the world. Both the books and films have won numerous awards and even to this day new theories and information come out about the wizarding world.
