HOW I HELPED BY PETER MARSHALL

Another article from Peter about how he has helped me deal with my anxiety - I hope this helps those who need it as much as his first article did! (Thank you from both of us for the lovely responses to his previous post!) 

When Bobbi asked me to write about how I helped her deal with her panic attacks, I was a little worried. I’m hesitant to write this, as I am not a medical professional in any way; I simply tried to help the person I love overcome something that held her hostage day after day. So I want to say that if you do have panic attacks, do not think that what I am suggesting will fix it instantly. Helping Bobbi get over her panic attacks took almost every day of a year and a half of talking with her, and even now she still gets anxious. If you do suffer from panic attacks, please read the advice of actual medical professionals and charities. The UK’s mental health services are absolute rubbish at the moment, through no fault of those medical professionals that try to help others, they just cannot afford to. Be wary of services like “BetterHelp” that do not require professional councillors, (I have provided links about this at the end). There are two useful links below, one to the charity Mind and one to the NHS website. These are professional organisations that can help you and are in a much better position to give advice and support than me. You are not alone if you have panic attacks, and there are people who can help you.

A CLASSICS TRIP (PART TWO): ATHENS, FEBRUARY 2018

Hey everyone, 

Quite a short blog post here about my second Classics trip (this one to Athens) at the beginning of this year. Anyone who knows me, knows that I have always had a fascination with ancient archaeology and mythology. From my GCSE classes in Year 10 up until my final year at university, Greek history continues to interest me. My trip to Athens earlier this year was amazing! It was great to see artefacts and remains that I had only seen in textbooks for 7 years!
