Children And Mental Health. ft Talla.

Grab some quavers, pour yourself a cup of coffee (or gin, whichever you prefer) and take a seat because this is going to be a long one. I have no children, so I’m not going to sit here and pretend to understand what its like to be a parent who: A) Has a mental health…

#WorldMentalHealthDay

As it’s World Mental Health day, I had to write something in celebration of it. I’ve always said that mental health needs to be spoken about a lot more than it already is. Services need more money, more staff and more time with clients that need so much support than can ever be imagined. The…

This blog post was written on a beach.

This blog post was written on a beach in Holland. With a notepad and pen, looking out to the sea. Its a windy day so excuse me if this post is a little short but I wanted to document this moment to prove to myself that my anxiety isn’t everything about me. You see, strange…

Thoughts of an ENGAGED lesbian????

So, the title says it all. On the 4th August 2018, my girlfriend asked me to marry her at Brighton Pride. It was the best and scariest moment of my life so far but I don’t want to talk too much about the scary stuff, lets talk about how it happened. We went to Brighton…

“You try to smile it away, some things you can’t disguise.”

“I’m just tired.” I said this to a friend today and it just got me thinking about how many different meanings this sentence has. Stayed up late watching a film? I’m just tired. Annoyed at someone’s bullsh*t? I’m just tired. Sitting on your bathroom floor at 2am, crying your eyes out and wondering what you’re…

A letter to my friends.

I’ve wanted to do this series for a while where I write letters to certain people in my life and my friends have been a huge support for me recently so I guess that this is a good place to start.. Hi friends, I want to thank you all. I want to thank you for…

“I am a goddess, I am a queen”

Hi guys, Yes, I titled this blog post by quoting a Jessie J song. I’m not even sorry. As you can see the title of this blog post, I want to talk about having confidence in yourself and your body. I know for a fact that I will see a perfectly slim girl in the…

Relationships VS Mental Health

Dating when you have any mental health condition can be an extremely difficult process and it’s something people fail to talk about when talking about mental health – Not that mental health gets spoken about nearly enough. Relationships can often come attached to a hell of a lot of anxiety in “normal” circumstances but poor…

What’s been going on?

Yes, I am the worst blogger in the world at the minute. No, I’m not going to apologize for it. The last few months haven’t been the easiest. I see all my friends and they seem to have it together. Friends with children, friends with mortgages and jobs and living with their partner. Whereas I’m…

I have no clue what I’m doing.

My name is Chloe Fridd, I am 20 years old and have absolutely no idea what I want to do with my life. At my age, we’re expected to know what we want. We’re expected to know the jobs we want to create the future that we want. School — high school — sixth form…
