July

It’s been an amazing year with it’s ups and downs. I can safely say that this time last year I had no little to no hope of getting over OCD, now with the help of my new doctor and my wonderful family and friends, I can finally see myself without this disorder.

I can see myself getting over it and that hope for the future is completely invaluable.

Thank you to my followers, all of whom have made this blog so fufilling and I hope we can continue to get through this together.

Here’s to another year!

Yours always,
Hally

You have no reason to apologise for struggling! I'm all ears if you need a chat! You're in my thoughts x

Thank you, it means a lot. I’m just so messed up atm, and I feel so far away from my friends, and I’m hurting.

Sorry, I’m usually far more positive.

Thank you so much for your thoughts.

Life has been so good recently, and I’ve no reason to be upset or low or depressive recently, but as we all know, depression doesn’t ask for a reason. I just hate it because it makes me hurt myself and it’s horrendous because I’ve been doing so well.

It makes me so ashamed.

I’m so sorry for disappointing you all, I couldn’t stay strong enough this time.

You are such a strong person, even if you don't think so. Don't let this "mental disorder" keep you out of order because overcoming the obstacles will allow you to see the beauties that life presents to you everyday. Just remember that there are people out there who love you and you should never be anxious enough to share your love with others. I have horrible anxiety, too, but I take everyday as an opportunity to do what I couldn't do yesterday. Just remember to smile, breath, and go slowly.

This is one of the most beautiful messages I have ever received. Whoever you are, thank you so very much.

All the best,

Hally

hello, is it ocd when things like: "if you don't do this in 10 sec you are going to die" pop in your mind? and you are getting nervous?

Yes, this is exactly a part of OCD. Please speak to someone, and get help.

There is nothing perfect, only life.
I think about this a lot, especially regarding my disorder. Yeah, it’s crappy that this is my lot in life, but nothing is absolutely A-Okay in life. Every single person has their ups and downs, their crashing highs and lows and it is this roller coaster ride that makes up our surprising lives. So no, my life is not perfect, but it’s my life and I wouldn’t change it.

I’m sorry I’ve been such a useless blogger recently. I know I should be updating more but life has been hectic and it’s difficult.

So, my exams are over, didn’t go fab. Oh well. Life goes on.

Back at school for Post-AS, no more Connections, new musical starting, seeing universities, thinking about my future, terrifying myself.

OCD wise, things are going really well. I’ve been putting a lot on hold and have been working so hard at it and I’ve been rewarded. My rituals are slowly but surely decreasing. I feel like I can do this.

It’s amazing when I started this blog, I had no hope that I’d ever get over my disorder, but the strength of people on here, the love of my family and friends and the guidance from my doctor has made me progress beyond anything I would have ever dreamt.

Please let yourself be proud of small things. Please do that. Please allow yourself to get really excited about playing a video game well or sending an ask you were nervous about or letting a bug outside or peeling the whole orange in one try. Please get so excited about that. Please. That’s so cool I’m so glad you did it.

For those of you out there approaching your important exams I just wanted to give you some advice and wish you good luck. On Monday I will be sitting my first AS Level exam and I’m not prepared enough so far and OCD has been getting in the way a bit. So here are some top tips from Hally to keep you on top form!

1 If you’re someone who can’t work in silence, don’t listen to music. The words will instantly distract you. Instead listen to soundtracks, my persona favourites are The Hunger Games and Harry Potter

2 Highlight/underline the important stuff at the end of the day

3 If you feel like it’s all getting too much, it’s okay to take a break and have an afternoon off

4 Work your way, not your parents’ way

5 If you’re ritualising while you’re working, take some time away from it. Do another subject and try to get out of the habit you’ve started

6 Pretend that revision is actually really, really fun

7 Don’t lie when you talk about revision, speak honestly about how much you have done

8 Be honest with yourself, has it really gone in? Are you working to your full potential etc?

9 It’s not the end of the world

I wish you all the luck in the word.

Hello my dear friends. I thought I’d let you know about the major milestone that I am about to come to!

Thursday is my 17th birthday and I am performing on the West End stage with my friends and family supporting me and I can’t wait for it.

I just wanted to thank you all for everything that you’ve done for me, all my wonderful followers.

I’m so sorry for not posting recently but things have been pretty hectic! School is getting so stressful, my AS exams are coming up and that means a lot of revision which I am so bad at!

OCD wise things are actually going up. For the first time in my life, I feel like I actually might beat this. My doc has given me the go-ahead to try and get over some of my rituals by myself which is amazing!
