My wobbles and when they started.

Welcome to my website - Moods, Meds and Miracles .

My struggles with ill mental health came to a head (pardon the pun) back in 1995 when I experienced what was then diagnosed as severe postnatal depression. I spent many weeks in a mother and baby unit and since that time I have been on one antidepressant or another.  After several diagnoses, years of therapies and self-help books I felt able to reduce my medication. 

My reduction journey was slow and long and succesfull until I hit the 'wall'  The 'wall' being perimenopause. 

One way to help deal with all I have experienced is to write it down. Not only have I found this cathartic but it has created the possibility of helping others. Having lived through the isolation of ill mental health, loss of hope and utter despair it can bring, my wish is that no one has to take it on alone.

I hope you can take something positive from my ramblings.

Much love
