Mental Health and DrupalCamp London 03 Mar 2015

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of presenting at DrupalCamp London and I’ve been blown away by the feedback that I’ve recieved form people. The slides from my session can be found here: Overall I had a lovely day, it was great to see how passionate people are. Thanks to everyone who came up to me afterwards and asked me questions. It was great to have some really challenging questions thrown at me. Here are some tweets from the event: So glad I was able to see my awesome fiance @mikebell_ give his talk on mental health #dclondon— Hannah...

The Surface Detail 27 Jan 2015

The title of the latest book I’m reading struck a cord with me. It’s called “The Surface Detail” by Iain M. Banks. Without too many spoilers it’s about virtual hells. Something which those who live with depression should be well aware of.

Here’s how it went down: Me: whisper - I have a question for you....

CBT Update 09 Dec 2014

I gave up on CBT. The sessions were too infrequent and sporadic. I really didn’t like the over the phone sessions either they were too impersonal and didn’t really contribute anything. The one thing I did get out of the sessions was helpful pointers with where i need to focus and what tools I need to give myself to be able to cope with things in the long run. I’ve started practising mediation, it gives me a sense of being and helps me re-connect my body and mind. I analyse my feelings more, this helps determine the cause of my...
