This is a collaborative post. The Internet gets a terrible press these days. According to the papers, it’s responsible for all kinds of societal ills. From causing screen addiction through to Brexit. With all this going on it’s sometimes hard to remember that the world wide web came about as a way to help human progress and not to hinder it. However, once you get past all the marketing and bots that clutter up much of the information superhighway, there…

When I was a young adult and I looked at people in their 30s or 40s, I always assumed that they had this game of life sussed. They were mature adults. Surely, they knew exactly what they were doing. Surely, they’d learnt the lessons of how to live a happy and contented life. I looked at them in awe and believed they all lived perfect lives. They seemed filled with wisdom and knowledge and a confidence I couldn’t imagine possessing.…

Is Your Shortness Of Breath Due To Age Or Asthma?

A black and white photograph of a man taking a deep breath and looking up to the sky - Is Your Shortness Of Breath Due To Age Or Asthma? - Mrs H's favourite things

This is a collaborative post. Most of us consider asthma as something you either have or not. It’s one of those conditions we assume will be prevalent at birth. And, while we may worry about this for our kids, we don’t often consider that we could suffer ourselves.

Living With Depression: A Nervous Breakdown & A Diagnosis

A photograph of a woman with brown hair, wearing a stripey t-shirt and bright red lipstick - Living With Depression: Having A Nervous Breakdown & Being Given A Diagnosis - Mrs H's favourite things

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. It’s a week that is hugely important, as we still have such a long way to go before we’ve broken the stigma that surrounds mental ill health. Last year, I wrote a post for Mental Health Awareness Week claiming that I was going to start sharing my story of living with depression, beginning with my nervous breakdown and diagnosis. Yet, these posts never materialised. Writing your own tale of living with depression is…
