Even if you do not believe that we have a soul, you can still have a purpose – even if you choose one and give it to yourself. Today we discuss the positives of having a purpose in life and how we discover what that purpose is.
I dont think I ever really considered the importance of recovery to start with. But it really is a matter of life and death. We need to take recovery seriously. Why are some people able to overcome addiction and others struggle?
When we come in to recovery we can look back on our past with new eyes – what we see often embarasses us as we hardly recognise ourselves. How can we overcome this?
Today’s vid is bit different. I take you around my house and I discuss the 2nd step that I believe we need to take in order to recover from BPD. Big hugs to you all! Xxx
I got asked to discuss how my relationship with my ex-husband was and is today. Do we co-parent well or are there still issues today? Our relationship was intense and unstable from the beginning and eventually we divorced. I used cocaine throughout our marriage and he hated me using drugs. Today myself and my ex-husband […]

Hi guys, I am so sorry I have been away for a few weeks, I have been poorly and only just starting to recover. I will put out a proper video on Friday – I just wanted to let you know I am still here. Lots of love xxx
Just a quick live check in to see how you are all doing and check you are keeping safe.
I’ve had to do a video on no particular video today as the kids are home and are insisting on being in my video!
A quick catch up as I haven’t done one for a while. I have so much on at the moment but just want to curl up in bed and sleep!
A HUGE thank you to all my subscribers for helping my channel reach 5000 subscribers!
Hi guys, this is a little catch up of what’s going on at the moment. I am going to have to reduce the amount of vids I put out for the next few weeks and I explain why in the video.
I have been fortunate enough to be helping with a new charity that has been set up in the US. In this video I get to explain all to you!
The kids are back at school and I’m happy I can get back in to a routine!
I hope you all have a lovely Easter and bank holiday xxx
A brief description of my channel and my playlists on Youtube.
My son has been ill and has hung off my leg for the past week so I’ve been unable to do anything! Also – my head is not with it at the moment and I need some video ideas!
Myself and my best friend Joanne met and became friends in recovery so we discuss that in this video.
Sorry Guys – this video was supposed to be up on Friday but I’ve had problems with my laptop! All sorted now (thanks to my amazing Step-Dad!) xxx
A quick update on my own mental health!
I hit 2000 subscribers! Thank you thank you thank you! xxx I also explain where a few of my videos are in this catch up.
A routine is so helpful in recovery and can make life easier for us. But how do we do it?
Where am I from? What tattoos do I have? How did I take care of my kids when I was really low?
The kids had their half term hols, I went to Ireland for my brother’s wedding, I no longer have a house to move in to and I cried for the first time this pregnancy!
It has just been pointed out to me that I mentioned the teddy story twice! I did wonder if I had mentioned it as I started talking and then I thought ‘No – no you didn’t!’ Duh! Sorry guys – serious baby brain and tiredness going on! My Day is like Groundhog day! I get […]
Question 1: Am I married? Question 2: How is my relationship now?
Hi Guys, sorry it has been over a week since I uploaded a video. I’ve had a really busy week as I will explain in the video. Also – I will be doing Q+A videos which I mention at the end of this video!
As I feel we are all friends now…I would like to invite you in to my home… xxx
I still keep getting ill, I feel 100 years old, I’ve accidently killed my sons pet critters!!!!
I had my baby scan….it’s a…..
I have been ill and grumpy and not been the best Mum this week!
I am soooooo tired!
I am completely out of routine at the moment and am getting scared about the school run which will be back in about a week! How will I ever make it?!
It has been over a week since my daughter hurt herself now and I thought I’d do a quick catch up on how we are getting on.
My Daughter had to go under general anesthetic after smacking her face in to a windowsill. It has been a nightmare weekend and I still feel I am recovering from it! My daughter is on the mend but I just want to wrap her in cotton wool! I will be back next week with more […]
Hi guys – sorry I have been away for a couple of weeks but…I’m pregnant! For the past few weeks I’ve felt so tired and so sick…but it is now easing and I’m back doing weekly videos again!
I have come off some of my meds, I’ve had poo on my finger and I don’t get to ‘sexy-dance’ any more!
This week I had my son’s birthday party, my other son had chicken pox, my partner peed me off (and I probably peed him off too!), I cooked dinner for friends and I had 2 pyjama days!!
Today is my son’s 5th birthday and it got me thinking about when he was born. It was a couple of months after his birth that the world that I knew and loved collapsed around me… but I believe I had to go through that to be where I am today.
What is the difference between a primary feeling and a secondary feeling? Why do we have feelings? How are our thoughts linked to our feelings? In this video I touch on how our feelings lead to our actions and the process that goes on in between.
This week my washing machine broke, my car broke and my son threw a middle-of-the-night tantrum! I have a son that walks slightly slower than a snail and another son who thinks it’s fine to wrestle his way out of the pram as it’s moving! Rarrrrrr!
In this video I discuss how my Easter went – I struggled with my lack of routine and had some serious mood swings!
In this video I just catch up with you and explain how my Christmas and New Year went.
