We have all felt frazzled at one time or another. I had gotten to the point where I was near exhaustion and close to giving up on everything.

It’s been a long road
I never felt like this moment was never going to happen; I made the vow to get through one year of blogging. It has not been an easy journey and there have been many times when I have wanted to stop but I am so glad that I finally got to this Milestone of my blog being one year old.

I am eternally grateful for all the love and support you have all given me, every read, every like and every comment has encouraged me to keep writing and sharing the life of Mrs T with you all.

I have been in this place many a time over my lifetime, at the point where I cannot take much more, wanting to hide under the duvet and refuse to come out. I am being eaten up by feelings of worthlessness; I try to do my best as a person but it just seems like whatever I do, I cannot win, even if I have the best intentions I am still wrong.
There is a demon inside my head and it is telling me that I am not good enough
