Welcome To My Little Corner Of The Internet!

I'm Jade Marie, an opinionated twenty five year old award-nominated mental health and autism awareness blogger, breaking stereotypes one blog post at a time.

I can usually be found with a cup of tea in one hand, and a good book in the other!

About

If I’m not sharing way too much information about my sex life or talking candidly about my latest depressive episode, you’ll probably find me in a charity shop trying to find another book to add to my overflowing collection.

I’ve just had to start on a fourth bookshelf!

I fell into blogging by accident back in 2015, when I fell down the rabbit hole of Hannah Gale’s amazing posts. Before that point, I’d never even heard of a blog (let alone thought of starting one myself!), but I became hooked and realised this was something I wanted to do myself.

I never imagined that one day it would turn into my career!

I started my own blog a week later and since then I’ve been lucky enough to grow an amazing and inspirational audience, all doing what I love; educating people on the realities of mental health and autism, talking about my own struggles and helping to inspire people with my personal journey.

My posts aren’t always easy reading. I talk regularly about the darker side of mental health + try my best to break down some of the stigmas and misconceptions around it.

Hopefully, you’ll find something here that can help you, and if you need a giggle I have a few more light-hearted pieces.

Theres one about what happened when manufactures think that condoms are one size fits all – that one’s very popular!

In October 2018 my blog was short listed for a UK Blog Award in the Mental Health category, and an Inspirational Students Award at Sheffield Hallam University in 2019!
