Life on a Rockin’ Boat

I don’t have a medical degree, but over the course of frequent hospital visits these two years I’ve come to realise I have a high probability of being right when it comes to my own body- a whopping 50%. My doctors from ENT have narrowed down my possible diagnoses to either vestibular migraines or Meniere’s…

Ridiculousness.

Al the events in my life that I’m experiencing now, joblessness, stuck in the rut with nothing much to do and literally waiting things out, numerous health issues, last but not least my current hearing impairment are the nasty consequences of a culmination of events which occurred in my teenagehood. I have finally come to…

Belated greetings! 2019

  Всем привет! A belated New Year to everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! It’s now almost the middle of January and a lot has changed since then!  I’m currently in a transitory phase of life and in between sending resumes and waiting on God for a full time job, I’ve been cherishing…

Virtual AWOL

I’m currently doing my dissertation. Like many of my peers I so wished our program was two years instead of a one year+ thing, so that we have the opportunity to be exposed to things like overseas trips. Maybe to the main Northumbria university in the UK? As it is we win some we lose…

Porn. I read a really scary statistic today. It said that for just one porn site, 81 million people visit it per day. Per DAY! 81 million people! And that’s for just one of the thousands of websites out…

Romanticised psychiatry and dreams out of reach.

I’m writing this because despite my intake of my nightly mirtazapine, somehow I have yet to feel sleepy. So hence I am going to wax lyrical about some things I have observed in new media of late. You know those minute videos that pops up on Face book feeds? I have watched enough to realise…

Finding peace with the process of grief ( Reblog)

I’ve been pretty open about the pain of this last year. Walking through the ending of my marriage, while simultaneously attending two funerals of family members – it has been a difficult road to say the least.
