Shup up black dog

Mind whirring.
Black dog barking.
I need to get some sleep.
Don't forget that.
Remember this.
Mind spinning.
I need to get some sleep.
Black dog barking.
"You're a failure."
"You can't do this."
Shut up black dog.
Leave me alone.
I can do this.
Step by step.
I need to get some sleep.


  1. I've been reading your blog archives the past few days, I've been struggling myself lately, and your words have really helped me. Usually I can pull myself out of it, but lately its been getting harder and harder.

    A lot of the time when I feel low, I read Love, Stargirl. I've read it at least once a year since I bought it age 17ish. Its so uplifting, and it helps me a lot. I thought I'd share this with you because it might make the bad days feel a little less bad.

    Anyway, stay strong. You're an inspiration x

  2. Thank you so much for your encouragement! Really means a lot to me.

    I will have a little look for that book, always like getting a recommendation :)

    Hope the past few days have been a bit better for you, keep fighting xxx
