I am one of those women (I've decided that now I am slap bang in the middle of my twenties that I am no longer a "girl"), who is most impressed/pleased by the smaller things in life. One of the things that I love, and that impresses me, most... lists.

Here in the UK there seems to be a big debate in society as to whether or not treating mental health conditions with pharmaceuticals is the best thing to do, especially in the long term; yet "pills" are probably the first thing your GP will offer you. If there is an underlying biological cause behind a mental health condition (bi-polar for example, which can be genetic or neurochemical), then treating it with medication seems like the right thing to do, surely? However, if a mental health condition is purely psychological (like my anxiety for example) are meds really the right answer? Opinion is divided and I for one am torn.

I am very honest about my experiences with mental illness, I see no reason not to be, so most that know me will have some sort of idea of what I deal with; those that know me well will deal with it too (for which I am ever grateful). I could literally spend days going into the nitty gritty, but I think an overview is a more appropriate for such a platform as my blog.

There are a lot of things in my life that make me very happy, there always has been. My family (a mixed bunch, but an absolute godsend), my friends (some come & stay, some come and go... all are dear to me), love (puppy love & the real kind... it all counts), my homes (there have been a few of late), beautiful music, good food, dancing, baking, cooking, gardening, craft making... the list could go on and on. I love so much about my life, but I had not been happy with it as a whole for a while; and it took me a long time to work out why. All of these things have one common denominator... they are part of MY life and the part of it that I have not been so keen on is, well... me.
