About

human to human…

Hello and welcome to my meanderings and musings…

Named April-Rose by my mother some thirty years ago and diagnosed Bipolar II Rapid Cycling a few moons ago; this blog tracks my journey as I discover more about the illness, discuss the stigma surrounding it, document my moods and emotions and includes some fun things for good measure.

As much as writing this blog is helpful to me (to stop things running on repeat in my head), it’s about helping others, it’s about helping you,  anyone who is going through the same thing. Through honesty and hopefully a little humour I want to support you in your journey. I won’t always get it right, but I’m just on the other end of this blog if you want to get in touch to vent/chat/gossip/ etc email me at: aprilrose @seasonsofapril.co.uk

oh and also…

You probably should know a little surface level deets to see if I’m the kind of gal you could take home to your mother; There’s the usual shit that reads like a dating profile; film buff, marvel, boxsets, road trips and car raves singing out of tune and listening to good music namely; Fleetwood Mac, Counting Crows, Keaton Henson, Tom Odell, The Civil Wars, Bear’s Den and Bon Iver to name a few…

I have a 15 year old cat called Archie who is the bomb, he likes to be scratched under the ear and has a penchant for Sheba – the dude has expensive taste.

Things I’m interested in that I probably wouldn’t share on a dating profile include; historical figures, crime – and this was long before the Making of a Murderer show, fashion, make-up – I have 30 lipsticks… nature – I don’t look like the type and no I don’t want to sleep in a field necessarily but put my feet in the sea or plonk me in the woods breathing in the fresh air and I’m one happy broad.

As Carol Ann Duffy once said, I give you an onion.
