Hush... girls 😅

This is my first Plath and I have to admit that I was disappointed by it. I think maybe I read this at the wrong time (I was 24 and not feeling the mood of the book at the time). I'm not exactly sure why people acclaim it so much but I'm sure there are good points that I'm not seeing.

I consume books that personally appeal to me and they consume me. #readingtransportsand transforms 6 novels down since April. #amancalledove #thewidow #theperfectgirl #justiceforsara #evidenceoflife #thebelljar I didn't want " A Man Called Ove" to end. #justread #thebookwasbetter

This line has stuck with me since I first read this book. I've had so many tattoo plans with this. #slyviaplath #thebelljar

I’m finally back to paperback and so pleased to have left my ereader at home! .
Day drinking in a park with bands and grub too, even though the suns not out it’s happy days! Hope you guys are having a great Sunday too! 🍻

Today’s post will be on mental health health issues. I’m going to share some personal experiences and in tomorrow’s post I will elaborate on what I do to make myself feel better, as well as books I found helpful/portrayed the problem well and I why I thought they were helpful.
I wanted to thank @thebookwormofnotredame for sharing her experiences and giving courage to others to do the same!
.
So, while reading The Bell Jar, I found that Esther and I shared some of the same worries and problems. She, like me, had always been an over-achiever and strives to do well academically. Until one day, she found she couldn’t. I hadn’t shared this story with many yet and I’m not sharing everything now, either but I hope it will be helpful for someone.
Until this year, I always got nothing but 5s in art subjects and got by with 4s in sciences. In May last year, I got chickenpox that has taken a bigger toll on my immune system than we thought. As the cold months came, I started getting awful headaches everyday and became very sensitive to light. It turned out to be because of a condition that runs in our family but it could be fixed with surgery (I got it in March) but it’s still not perfect, yet.
At the same time, because this prevented me from studying the way I did; I couldn’t focus for as long and it stressed me, my science grades slipped. I got a new math teacher, too which I always struggled the most with and he didn’t help at all.
I ended up becoming a private student after I missed too many days and I became isolated from everyone, which I shouldn’t have let happen. We have also visited a neurologist and she referred me to a psychiatrist, who diagnosed anxiety disorder and seasonal depression. For a while, I felt really lost (like Esther in the novel), I didn’t know who I was anymore. I always thought that my main value was being a good student but with my science grades I couldn’t say that anymore. I’m not over everything yet but it’s slowly getting better.
.
I would like to share books that I thought portrayed mental health issues well: The Bell Jar and Catcher In The Rye.

Every Sunday, dad would go out and buy the paper, and date scones. Mum and I would sit at the table and swap parts of the paper as we read them. My favourite sections were the baby names and the Body and Soul lift out. Today, I don’t have mum here, and I don’t have the paper, but I drove to the bakery to get a date scone, and I’m about to start this book. Food isn’t about the calories or the macros; it’s about the memories that it evokes and the people you share it with #atypicalanorexia #atypicalanorexiarecovery #ednos #ednosrecovery #ednosfamily #ednoswarrior #osfed #osfedrecovery #ed #edfam #edrecovery #edwarrior #edsoldier #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorderrecovery #recovery #recoveringaussies #adultswitheds #weightrestored #depression #anxiety #bpd #bpdrecovery #memories #nostalgia #sylviaplath #thebelljar #bakersdelight @bakersdelight

The trouble was, I had been inadequate all along, I simply hadn't thought about it.
