Session 2.

This morning I had my second session. I was feeling much more relaxed about going this time. Last week I was quite anxious.

This week we talked about:

  • Mood changes
  • OCD behaviour
  • Current living situation

I’ve had quite a rough week (i feel like I say this every week) but this week I’ve been feeling quite ill and it’s been really getting to me.

My mood has been quite up and down, especially as i’ve been feeling quite stressed at work.

Its no secret that I have OCD tendencies, but I would have never described it as OCD. Until this morning, I didn’t realise just how much the rituals and behaviours that I have effect my everyday life.

We talked about my current living situation and how I would like to see it be different in the next six months. We made targets! (realistic ones) I’m going to focus and work on them!

Therapy went quite well overall.

Darkspots August Box.


At this beginning of this month I decided that I would try out Darkspots monthly subscription box.

I was immediately intrigued by this box because I haven’t seen anything like this before. For someone like me that struggles with maintaining a constant mood. It’s nice to have a little ‘pick me up’ delivered straight to your door.


I love the thought and passion that goes into these boxes.

This months box seems to have included a little bit of everything that can immediately lift your mood.

The first thing I noticed was the body shop soap. I fell in love with it immediately. It smells beautiful! I’ve always been a big fan of stress balls. I used to use them when I was at school and University, I found them really useful. I’m glad that I got a pineapple one included in this box.


I love that Darkspots included this in the box. ‘A Dark Spot’… Realistically, recovery is not one straight line of positivity and perfect days. In fact, neither is life. Everyone has ups and downs, and good and bad days. It’s important to not put too much pressure on ourselves to have perfectly happy good days and that’s okay to have the odd ‘off’ day. In face, it’s ‘normal’.

I’m currently attempting the challenge that has been set by Darkspots. It’s going well so far. 🙂

If you are interested in getting your hands on one of these boxes. Head over to and sign up.
