I feel as though this post may not contain as much cynical sarcasm as usual; brace yourselves. In all honesty this is probably the most personal blog I've written yet, hopefully it goes down well.
I think today if you were to say you have anxiety it would be like saying you're a human; it's everywhere. Many people in my family have it and I feel riddled with it, that reminds me of ticks; it seemed like an appropriate description. I am fortunate enough to have family member
Not only did I start a new book, which in itself is gobsmacking, but I started one of the funniest and most genuine books I've ever read. Helen Wallen has written multiple books surrounding these topics: babies, parents, society and many more.

Hello mothers! Ah, we've heard all the stories and seen all the well played movie scenes showing us what morning sickness would/should be like, but let's get real. Morning sickness has been said to never have just been in the morning; some of you have had it all day, just at night, in the mornings and for some of you lucky ones out there who NEVER get it; go on you!
