About

Batshit crazy, certifiable nuts, crae crae, a sandwich short of a picnic basket. Whatever you want to call it.

When you have had the mental proverbial shit kicked out of you! You have come to the right place!

A self-help guide that makes no promises to be helpful. Best read in the middle of the night when you can’t sleep and have a bowl of rice bubbles on hand.  Not a single warm fuzzy kitty cat meme or motivational quote to be found. Real words, raw, funny and a little sweary. Sometimes a little dark….because you can’t dance the mental health waltz without falling into a few dark holes. Based on thousands of hours clocked up walking my own journey of being handed the shit stick of a mental illness. Leave your politically correct opinions at the door thank you. Those who suffer understand being able to laugh in the face of adversity is sometimes the only way to get through.

NOTE:
If you are worried about your or someone else’s mental health, the best place to get help is your GP or local mental health provider. However, if you or someone else is in danger or endangering others, call police immediately on 111.
