The Recovery Body

I think I am in "recovery". After suffering from bulimia with anorexic behaviours I now find myself 18 months purge-free. During those 18 months I found myself becoming less and less scared of the fear foods and I started to deal with triggering situations better every time. I found myself re-educating a love for myself… Continue reading The Recovery Body

Flexible Planning

T-minus 24 hours until my qualification leave begins! (Well 24 hours if I leave work at 5pm tomorrow but my supervisor knows it’s my last day so fingers crossed he’ll let me run away as soon as it is professionally acceptable to do so).

I've still experienced panic attacks, I've… Continue reading Avoiding Self-Sabotage

Each to their own! My boyfriend and… Continue reading Just a touch of magic…

Paper handed in, step outside and breathe. Done. Over. Seven years of law school. Finished. Drinks, food and laughter galore. The bank account winces… Continue reading Seven Years

Blue Sky Reflections

You can learn a lot when you're left to your own devices - in my case 4 whole days and 5 nights. It's oh so cliched but I found myself a bit more than I thought was possible in Tenerife. I left the country to escape but what did I learn in the process? Day… Continue reading Blue Sky Reflections

Flying Solo

Guess where I'm writing this post from? Guess where I am? I'm not in London, I'm not even in the UK...I don't actually know where I am because that's right, you guessed it, I'm on a plane baby! Now, before some of you hypochondriacs panic, I'm just drafting with the intention of publishing when I… Continue reading Flying Solo
