Today is International Non-Binary People's Day, and we want to be heard. I'm sitting here writing this with my pronouns tattooed on my head in make-up. I have no intricate skills and am generally a messy human being, so it's not completely perfect, but it's the statement that matters; maybe they'll respect my pronouns then.… Continue reading Non-Binary Pride
I want to post this not as a justification, but as a note to those in the same boat as me that you're not alone and we should be proud of all we've been done and are doing into the future. This morning, I recieved a fair few amount of messages questioning me on something… Continue reading The Medical Mandate

I remember upon reading the latter term in my first ever awareness post two years ago, I did have readers… Continue reading M.E. and me.
This month, I'm asking you to be aware of the chronic and mental health conditions I battle with, and educate yourself.
I vouched at the beginning of last year that i'd be transparent on mental health, disability, recovery, and even started an instagram account to log all of that. Ironically, it's chronic illness that's caused the downfall of that account due to a lack of spoons to post and update, constant brain fog and a lack… Continue reading The Side Of Chronic Illness You Don’t See On The Internet
Today is the first birthday of my first three children.... by which I mean tattoos. A year ago today, I got my first tattoo, and my second, and third. Yes, I got three all at once. I shared these beauties with you all this time last year, but having gained four more, I wanted to… Continue reading Tattoo talks: it’s been a year!
