Average Mum With Not So Average Struggles – An Honest Account Of Mental Illness, Addiction & Debt

Have you ever messed up your life? Like really messed it up? I did, so please know you are not alone. This blog is like my personal diary, so apologies if narcissism is rife. In my mind I’m writing for myself, honest and from the heart (I’m just trying to ignore the fact that other people will see my most epic failures and inner most thoughts – but it’s for the greater good you see).

Writing this blog I hope will be a help to me because it will keep me focused on mental health, addiction and debt  and if I’m focused I have the strength to battle these demons. I’m well aware that complacency gets you nowhere, apart from a step back – and believe me I don’t want to be taking backwards steps. I’m all about moving forward.

I’m hoping parts of it will resonate with people. Maybe the addiction elements or the mental health or even the debt. Whichever, it doesn’t matter. I want you to know that you are not alone. We all think and do crazy shit…..that’s life. From the lowest of lows things do get better, not perfect, not like it was before, but better than it has been. It takes a lot of time and requires a lot of patience but stick it out……it’s worth it.

Take care & be kind
