I took this selfie during one of my darkest times, and its now a stark reminder how invisible mental health can be to those around us.

That's Teddy btw;)

Hi I’m James,

Welcome to my blog!


After 25 years of suffering with mental health issues, I was formally diagnosed with complex post traumatic stress disorder in 2019. A moment that changed my life in ways that I could never have hoped for.

My battle is still ongoing, but I want to give hope to those who feel hopeless and get stuck in the mindset that there's no way out. Trust me there is hope, and it's a battle that's worth fighting for.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you find some of it helpful.
