"I Can’t Help It I'm Wired This Way"

 "I Can’t Help It I'm Wired This Way"

This is one in the first of a few science related posts I want to do.
I guess you could call it a new “Eating Disorders and the Brain” series.
This stuff fascinates me and it one of the reasons I chose to embark on my BSc in Psychology back in 2013.

I find it amazingly empowering to know that we have incredible brains that adapt depending on our behaviours, but that are also shaped by the world around us, because it puts us back in the driving seat of our recovery.

Anxiety: Friend or Foe?

Anxiety: Friend or Foe?

In this post I explore anxiety and give you an insight into my own experiences of anxiety. From hyperventilating panic attacks, fear of food, migraines & more, what is the purpose of this “protective” emotion? and how much control do we really have over our perceptions & responses?

It’s ok to feel fear. It’s what we do about our fears that determines who we are and who we become.
