A look at insomnia, how it affects me, and what I think we need to do to move forward as a society less judgemental of those with sleep issues and more open to managing the more extreme treatment options that we currently are hesitant to prescribe.
A look at expectation and reality in the human mind and how they can lead to disappointment with the focus being on people who have low expectations and for whom the reality is even lower. People with bad luck who are being failed because society refuses to acknowledge the reality of how life works.
A short article about rejection and rejection sensitivity dysphoria, a symptom that typically manifests in those with neurodivergent or mental health conditions.
Not an easy article to write, but one which I think needs to be written. All about autism and how it affected me and my life, and how I experience it. I was diagnosed at age 32 as on the spectrum, so I lived a whole youth of not knowing.

I’m a nobody. You might think “You have this website, and a twitter and views and people listen…” Nah, they don’t. Not really. Not compared to, say, someone who went and did a journalism degree, then worked at the local paper for a bit and then, they were a bit nerdy so they worked theContinue reading “Who Hears the Voiceless? On Being a Nobody”
I’ve already set out my patsy, well it’s time to pull the fucking trigger. But first, like any evil villain in this scenario I am going to reveal my motivation. Mine is not a selfless motivation.
