A Chatty Catch-Up | July 2020

July was a pretty good month overall 🙂 I’m still working from home, which has been lovely 🙂 Although the lockdown restrictions have now eased, J and I haven’t started venturing out anywhere, apart from the supermarket for our weekly click and collect. I’m not really in a hurry to go anywhere, although I am missing IKEA!!

Living With Anxiety

*content warning – this blog post talks about anxiety, anxiety symptoms and medication side effects*

I’ve always been a fairly anxious person. I went to Brownie camp when I was younger and someone told a “scary” story about a vampire rabbit coming through the cat flap and killing people. I slept with my duvet around my neck for years afterwards, even when it was super hot. Just in case 😬😬

Now I worry about all sorts of things; what if someone breaks into my house in the night, what if a plane falls out of the sky onto my house, what if my car randomly rolls down the driveway and hits the house over the road, what if I don’t hang clothes up using the same coloured pegs and something bad happens?

A Chatty Catch-Up | June 2020

A Chatty Catch-Up | May 2020

The end of April/beginning of May didn’t exactly go particularly well for me. I was really struggling with anxiety so I ended up having to phone my GP and got put on Sertraline. The side effects made me feel pretty sick for the first week but luckily I started taking them over the bank holiday weekend (and I’d taken the Monday off which I was super grateful for) so I mostly sat on the sofa watching Murder, She Wrote! Thankfully I’m now starting to feel less sick and less anxious all the time.

Femme Luxe Loungewear*

I’ve never really been one for loungewear if I’m being honest. I’m that weird person who can wear jeans inside the house all day 😬 But then lockdown happened and my jeans suddenly became obsolete. I didn’t want to be sitting working all day in jeans and the only thing I had close to comfortable clothes were pyjama bottoms.
