Working on me and my mental health has been a priority of mine the last couple of years. I’ve come far and that’s not me being egotistical, that’s just honesty. I couldn’t even leave my house some days. I mean…I’d force myself out the door for the school run, but I’d then escape back to […]

The bruises you don’t see.

I’ve never seen myself as a self-harmer. My therapist suggested after a session that my tattoos were my scars.
