I almost forgot that last Tuesday I had an appointment scheduled with my psychiatrist. Thank goodness I received the notification alarm a few days before the visit. 😅 I recently stumbled across pictures in which I was smiling genuinely and being carefree. So I put them as my lock screen and home screen pictures. [...]
I love a busy weekend full of plans but I equally, if not more so, enjoy a cosy weekend at home. Once in a while it’s nice to have nothing to do and just recharge for the weeks ahead. However, it just doesn’t happen often enough! I find it really hard to sit back, relax and take time off so I’ve put together a weekend to do list to fill my mind with ideas.
Morning, guyss!! ❤️ I thought I’d do a little post about the makeup I currently use on a daily basis. I’m a routine type of person -- no matter how much makeup I bought, I’ll end up using the same makeups until they hit pan. So far, none of my makeup has hit pan except [...]
. I'm on my way to recovery, I can genuinely feel it. It's a good thing, though I'm not completely passed my anxiety/depressive phase. There's a steady progression and that's enough. 😊 Along the way to recovery, I pick up some valuable life lessons that I may not have learnt that quickly if it's not for [...]

By now you should notice that I like to pretend that I have readers on this blog 😂 #delusional. Oh well. What can I say. This blog, however quiet it is, is my happy place. I'm getting sidetracked. Seriously, I have an attention span of a goldfish! Oh. I want to tell you about an event that I attended last Saturday. The event was organised by the Al Maghrib Institute. It was a talk by Yasmin Mogahed entitled "Umbrella of Darkness -- Healing through Emptiness".
. Just last month have I only opened up about the anxiety and depressive symptoms that I've been having publicly to friends and family. I mean, apart from the close ones that I've opened up to earlier. And I find something interesting. Since I first opened up to people about my symptoms, people who knew be [...]
I had a reallyyy bad day today. . One of those days where you just have no one to go to except Allah S.W.T. One of those days where the only words that come out of me are, "O Allah, help me." . I must say, I'm handling it better though. If I were still [...]
Hey hey heyyy... Here is this month instalment of the mental health series. I think I should name the instalments so it'd be easier for people to find them, because if you're a keen reader of this space, you'd know that sometimes I write about...absolute rubbish. 🤣 . Mental illness can seem a lonely place [...]
