So my husband and I have spent the last six months, navigating the unpredictable waters of pregnancy. Acne, back-ne, flatulence, back ache, swelling, bleeding gums, leaking nipples, constant hunger... and that's just my husband. To be honest, despite the usual slightly unpleasant but more impractical symptoms, it has been fairly smooth sailing thus far and … Continue reading My body now: A good measure of time, but more clock shaped than hourglass
First off, why not have a watch of my latest video to get up to date: https://choosetransformation.files.wordpress.com/2019/05/win_20190520_14_11_56_pro.mp4 As I said, I'm now in the middle of quite a heavy stint at work- three, 12.5 hour days on the trot, three days off and then three days back on... so six days out of nine. I … Continue reading Knackered.com
Here I stand- Tall. Strong. Steady. Stretching towards those Cumulus, effortlessly. This exposed skeleton, hidden beneath an impressive display of greens and reds. These leaves, an ecosystem of their own, nurturing others. The thick bark preventing any intrusion of what I hold dear to me inside; a barrier which has taken many years to create. … Continue reading Roots
NOTE: I talk about walking bare foot on grass- but not my own, it's artificial!! We're a couple months in! I thought it'd be useful to have a look back at my progress thus far, so I've just watched all of my videos back. Here's todays video (nothing too dramatic!): https://choosetransformation.files.wordpress.com/2019/05/070519.mp4 The first thing I … Continue reading Progress Point
I get so consumed by my own struggles sometimes, that I forget the impact it has on my husband. Sometimes, I can be a real pain in the arse to live with! (I know we all have our moments.) I decided to make an effort for him a few nights ago and make things a … Continue reading He Tries
“It’s either Perfection or Failure”
Lavender from the allotment at work Here's my latest video, which I'll go into a bit more underneath: https://choosetransformation.files.wordpress.com/2019/04/vid_20190423_163005.mp4 I usually look forward to the consistency of my working day routine and the general predictability of the day's activities, but lately it's felt like more of a task. Yesterday at work, I felt the familiar … Continue reading “It’s either Perfection or Failure”
A sketch for the soul
Firstly, Happy Easter! It's a beautiful sunny day here in the South of England. In about an hour I'm heading to my parent's house to host an egg hunt. I like to interpret the Easter Bunny in a slightly unconventional manner, in that it is actually a fiend who steals the eggs from children, as … Continue reading A sketch for the soul
For the love of animals
Sometimes I sit back and think; "We don't deserve animals!" For as long as I can remember, I've lived with animals around me. Even as a child, I recall having a bad day at school and planting my tear stained face into the neck of our golden retriever, Sonny (before he got old and grumpy). … Continue reading For the love of animals
Have a watch so we're on the same page: https://choosetransformation.files.wordpress.com/2019/04/010419.mp4 I get so frustrated with panic sometimes! It sounds silly that I don't panic about panic anymore doesn't it? Since learning coping strategies for my panic attacks, I feel I'm now pretty good at handling them (most of the time). I like to lie on … Continue reading Overcoming obstacles
Aaaaaand, we’re off!
Welcome & thank you for looking at my page! A bit of background... my name is Kim and I'm a registered mental health nurse in the UK. I've been battling Anxiety, Depression and Panic (in fluctuating amounts) for as long as I care to remember. I often find the irony of being a mental health … Continue reading Aaaaaand, we’re off!
