At This Moment #8 | Lifestyle


I'm currently watching Season 2 of Frontier, which features my bae Jason Momoa. Here's the trailer. Season 2 is a bit slow so far and doesn't have much J-Mo in it but hopefully it'll pick up soon.


I'm not really reading any more as bipolar makes it REALLY hard for me to focus. I'm either too sluggish or too hyper. I'm skim-reading You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay at the moment but it's a bit hippie-dippy for my current frame of mind. One day I hope to be able to immerse myself in books again, especially as at some point I'd like to get back into education.


Right now I'm making my hair fall out from stress and poor diet. My bipolar tablets interact with my anxiety meds and make me throw up nearly every time I clean my teeth, which sucks. They also make me feel really nauseous at all other times, affecting my appetite. On top of that I'm on such a low income I can't feed myself properly, so I'm probably malnourished, hence the hair loss.


To take a daily walk, no matter how exhausted I am.


I've finished taking my anxiety meds. As mentioned above, I'm nauseous on them all the time. I'd rather be anxious and not feel ill than take them and want to vomit all day.


Naps! I love to nap. The nap is the world's greatest invention.

(This section used to be TEXTING but music is far more interesting than texting).

I'm really digging this Naughty Boy ft. Beyonce song at the moment. Although the lyrics are intended romantically, these really get me in the feels right now:

Ain't runnin' from myself no more
I'm ready to face it all
If I lose myself, I lose it all

A reminder I have to face this current time head on and I have to prioritise me.

LOVING I loving anything right now? Think positively, woman! I'm loving the support my family and my good friends are giving me through this time.


Hate is a strong emotion. I don't think I hate anything. I wouldn't choose to go through what I'm going through, but I hope it's going to make me as tough as a uterus. I would say tough as balls but a uterus is way tougher!

I think the worst thing about my situation at present is the exhaustion. Fibromyalgia is painful and pain is tiring. ME is tiring. Bipolar is tiring and the meds they put you on are tiring. I'm a sloth, ha! I live for my daily nap. I hope things get better when spring arrives and my Seasonal Affective Disorder fades a bit.

Let me know what you're watching in the comments - especially if there's something good I should be checking out on Netflix!

Thanks for reading. Leah xoxo


  1. Hi Leah, have you seen Alias Grace on Netflix? It’s the series made from Margaret Atwood’s book of the same name. It’s absolutely amazing and I just re-read the book because of it. (The orginal book came out about 20 years ago and I read it then, first). Anyhoo, I’m going to find you on Facebook — I know we’ve chatted on it before — and send you a private message. Kiss, Christy x

    1. I haven't but I'll check it out. If it's very dark I may have to give it a miss as I need to keep my viewing relatively light these days. Thanks for finding me on Facebook! xxxxxx
