Following on from my update on my recovery from BPD; where I mentioned the how the difficulties achieving and maintaining recovery are compounded by unrelenting crisis, I will now share an insight into some of the challenges/crises I have faced in the past year that make my achievement all the more remarkable… Continue reading
Hi readers :D
I just want to quickly apologise for both the lack of posts and for not having replied to and approved any comments for a while. Life has been very busy, with work, both kids health problems and actually going on holiday to have a break from it all I just haven’t had time.
I will get the comments approved and replied to asap and do an update post soon too.
In the meantime, if you are interested I have written a blog post for work recently which you can read here: http://www.england.nhs.uk/2013/10/15/sharon-howard/
Hope you enjoy that and I will be back soon as I have so many notes from my holiday I need to write up and share with you!
Never a truer word spoken…
Hi, readers how’s it going?
I’ve not been writing for some time now. It’s odd how despite writing being one of the biggest loves in my life I go through periods where I have nothing to say, no words to type and can go ‘silent’ for months on end. I’m not saying I’m back now, cause this may just be a one-off update post, even I don’t know at the moment.
So, why the title? Well it’s like this…. Continue reading
Jack Monroe is an inspiration! And when you are someone with a brave and loud voice hater’s and trolls always come out of the woodwork – it’s time those sad type’s crawled back into their holes!

I’d like to apologise to anyone I seem to have mortally offended with my apparent ‘conventional attractiveness’ and taste for middle eastern food.
In an article published today on ‘Left Futures’, I am apparently ‘middle class’ for ‘not spending the afternoon drinking White Ace and copulating.’ I am often advised not to respond to criticism – and I rarely do, people are entitled to their opinion. But I do respond to outright lies and misrepresentation, because I’ll be damned if people can rewrite my life and I’ll just let it lie.
In a potted bastardisation of my history, I have apparently ‘been judged lightly’ as a benefit claimant because, basically, i’m pretty and cook with chickpeas. (I’ll ignore the overlooked fact that I only claim child benefit these days, and crack on…) Really? Did you read the Sun comments section, the Guardian comments, the Daily Mail comments, the comments under…

Sickening the country we live in!

We learn today that Barry George has been denied compensation for being falsely imprisoned for the murder of Jill Dando.
Despite being innocent of all charges against him, and having almost certainly been framed by the British Establishment, the Courts have refused to allow George the right to appeal against the decision in what his sister calls a “travesty of justice”.
Why on earth aren’t the powers-that-be willing to acknowledge the distress and suffering caused to Barry George by being wrongly incarcerated for 8 years?
Why aren’t they awarding him an automatic compensation offer as they have done in other cases where a miscarriage of justice has taken place?
Why are they allowing us to think he is in someway still guilty despite being clearly innocent?
Is it because, in their desperation to keep a lid on Britain’s dirty secrets, they’re willing to sacrifice bloody well anything or anyone?
