About Me

My name is Natalie. I'm 36 years old and live in North Tyneside, UK. 

I've always been creative and find having a creative project helps me to relax and unwind.

I am passionate about health and wellbeing, especially since I was diagnosed with Depression, Generalised Anxiety and a Panic Disorder. After years to trying to pretend nothing was wrong, I am finally accepting of my mental health disorder and have found a way to be empowered by it, helping others to not feel alone.

I am a Time To Change champion; a Mind Blue Light champion and run a peer support walking group called Mental Health Mates Newcastle. For more information please click on the below links:

  27. All are required to attend strike. In the event the show is selling extremely well, Sunday 2/25 will be used to add a matinee and extend the run. Currently, there’s only a small chance we will extend. Because of weather, sales may be down - and Thursday has not sold well at all. A decision will be made by Friday morning 2/23 (if not before).

Anxiety really sucks

I know I've been quiet of late but I'm back. It's hard to know where to start.

I've had a challenging couple of months and I haven't been well enough to blog. The biggest problem is that I've not been able to talk openly due to the circumstances and that was stressing me out as I've actually needed the support more than ever.

I'm not prepared to go into details but what I will say is I've been the most anxious I have ever been. I wanted to write about my symptoms and just how bad anxiety can be. It's so far from being nervous before a test or interview. Anxiety is completely consuming and there is no escape or relief. If you think about a time when you've been nervous and then imagine that those nervous feelings don't go away, they are with you every minute of the day and keep increasing so that other things in your life also begin to make you feel unsettled, uneasy, worried, jittery, and anxious.

My anxiety has exploded like a firework…

Brits are happier to discuss sex than mental health at work

Today, Time To Change reveal results of a survey of 2000 British workers, which suggests mental health remains one of the last taboos in the workplace.

When asked to select from a list, the topics they would feel comfortable discussing with their colleagues:
30% felt comfortable discussing a relationship break up; 25% money problems 20% dating advice 19% religion 18% sex, while only 13% said mental health, with the topic ranking lowest out of a total of 10 subjects.

One in four of us will experience a mental health problem in any given year and yet Time To Change say these figures show that when it comes to employment the vast majority of people still feel unable to speak openly about their mental health with their line managers and even their close colleagues.


The survey also revealed that over half of the workers said they would support a colleague if they noticed they were struggling with their mental health. However, 37% of these people said they wouldn't know how to.

Self Care Sunday... and not a yoga session in sight!

Now, before you start wondering I'm not saying yoga isn't a great form of relaxation, it is but it just doesn't work for me.

The thing about self-care is that it needs to be unique to you, if you are not interested or forced into things it's not going to have the same impact on lifting your spirits and making you feel better as things that you enjoy would.

So what is self-care?
The Self Care Forum (www.selfcareforum.org) defines it as
the actions that individuals take for themselves, on behalf of and with others in order to develop, protect, maintain and improve their health, wellbeing or wellness. When you are well, self-care isn't much of an issue as you have the desire and energy to do things that are enjoyable. For instance, this week has been really busy for me and I have been doing lots of things for other people. To ensure I balance this out I need to take care of myself so I don't become drained. Over the past few days I have tried to get more sleep - …
