Today on a solo episode I wanted to dive into a topic that I feel is important to discuss... Relationships, love and being single. I believe we experience so much pressure in these areas and can feel very suffocated by comparison and the need to please others. Please know your life is yours, you are incredibly important and however you choose to live your life if the right way for you.
Many people reached out to me after my sketch on health anxiety asking how I overcame it. I personally would say though it feels like I have overcome it, a lot of it is to do with the fact I have managed it - I think in some capacity it will always be there, however I have found my 'root' of this type of anxiety and tried to find a way to work through it. This is what worked for me, and I do apologise for how morbid it sounds, but I truly hope it can help you whether in a very small way or in a bigger way. Please remember you are not alone, so many of us experience this and it is very normal. Sending you so much love and know I am always here if you need a chat XXX

Today I am joined by the lovely Henry who is the mastermind behind Fanny Quivers the "XL Drag 'Mess' from the sunny IOW". We talk about his struggles with self doubt and crippling anxiety, breaking free from the fear of what others think and coming to find who Henry is and let me tell you he is extraordinary.
Bit of a solo, and slightly cringe worthy episode today... sorry in advance... but minute 15 should bring you a giggle if nothing else.

Ella and I met when we were in school, we formed such a great friendship and both feel we've followed the unwritten rules of life. We've done everything we were supposed to do... but was it the right thing and did it lead to happiness?
Ellen gave birth to her happy and healthy daughter in the Summer of 2020. After hearing so much negativity about how it feels to give birth Ellen decided to she didn't want this to be her reality and so instead of thinking about birth in a negative, scary way, she decided to regain the control of her body and her idea of birth. Ellen chose to use the HypnoBirthing method and has got the most positive and inspiring story to share that will really change the way you think about pregnancy.
**As a disclaimer I'd also like to add we do speak about miscarriage. This may be triggering for some women and men to hear and so I'd advise you stop listening at 59 minutes and skip over the beginning of the episode.
Thank you so much to Ellen for coming on this episode and being so honest and open about your experience with pregnancy, birth and miscarriage.

In 2016 a few days before Christmas, my Dad was diagnosed with Dementia. I was 23 and living abroad on a year contract at Disney World. At the time of diagnosis, I had no idea how much my life and the life of those around me was going to change. This experience has been one of the hardest and most traumatic experiences I have ever been through. It's something no one in the world can prepare you for and something I truly feel is not spoken about enough. Dementia is cruel and I wish more than anything there was something I could do to stop it happening to others.
