Janis grew up in and around Darwin and its rural surrounds. At one point she lived by a swamp and really could get crocodiles in her backyard… Along with all sorts of other critters.

Now living in the Adelaide Hills with her husband, three children - lovingly referred to as ‘Demonic Hordes’ – and several rescue animals that include chickens, rabbits, a cat and three indoor galahs.

My year on the couch – Mental health and how not to ignore it.

Hi everyone!

Yes, I do actually still exist. It’s been a while, right? Well, as the title of this blog post indicates, I’ve basically had bad year of mental health and am finally feeling well enough to start blogging and interacting with people again.

What happened? Did I just one day in 2019 sit down on the couch, and then all of a sudden it was 2020? Well, as much as it does feel that way to me
