What makes non-binary gender real? 

What makes non-binary gender real? Is it social acceptance? Is it a box on a form? Is it your decision to legally recognise it? No! Non-binary gender is real because we feel it, we are it, we LIVE it.  What … Continue reading

I AM NOT FEMALE!

Switching anti-depressants: An Update

Today is meant to be the last day that I take Citalopram, and tomorrow is meant to be the first day that I start Venlafaxine. However, I’ve decided to delay starting on the new anti-depressant for another day as tomorrow is the last day of my holidays (I’m skiing with my family) and I don’t want to feel sick tomorrow.

My worst day was when I woke up feeling extremely low and ended the day feeling very suicidal.
