A maniac’s descent

Veva from The Maniac’s Path is the guest star this week.  Veva’s blog also just won TWIM Best New Blog from TWOM.  Congrats!

Veva shares her experience with a disorder that is very rarely talked about, though from the feedback we have received so far, many people are afflicted with it.

Veva shares her story centred around dermatillomania (skin picking) and the depression, obsession and low self-esteem that fueled her life choices.

If I may, I would like to redirect you to MentalHealthTalk.info to read Veva’s story by clicking on this link: http://mentalhealthtalk.info/skin-picking.

Thank you.

Much love,


On laying ghosts and raising dandelions

Dandelions and Bad Hair DaysAnother guest post over at Mental Health Talk… this one is by Suzie Grogan from No Wriggling out of Writing and Dandelions and Bad Hair Days.

Suzie’s is a jammed-back story about growing up with a desperation to please leading to anxiety and OCD, a worst fear coming true, the connection found in blogging, and the passion to compile a book to make a difference.

Please check out her story at: http://mentalhealthtalk.info/anxiety-inherited and while you are there, please don’t be shy to share it or leave a comment.

Thank you and I hope you’re having a great weekend.
