How I overcame nausea during pregnancy.

Tamra MerciecaMental Health6 Comments

When I first saw the cross show up on the pregnancy test, I was excited. My husband and I both. We’d wanted to have a child sometime soon, and now we had a baby in my belly.

Tamra MerciecaMental HealthLeave a Comment

So I have a confession to make… I was a binge eater. Having grown up a skinny girl who ate what she liked, I was suddenly faced with rapid weight gain in my early 20s, if I so much as looked at food the wrong way. Food became the enemy. Yet like the so-called ‘bad boys’, they somehow manage to … Read More

Your internal tape recorder: It records EVERYTHING!

Tamra MerciecaMental HealthLeave a Comment

It’s funny how much we know (especially about other people and the world around us) without consciously realising it.

Because an unconscious part of me recognises … Read More

Faith. Where is yours?

Tamra MerciecaMental HealthLeave a Comment

Too often I see people who like to doubt.. well.. pretty much everything! They question that great idea, they brush off that entrepreneurial concept as being make-believe as opposed to a very real achievement, and they dismiss other people’s dreams instead of seeing the possibility in them. These people lack faith. Faith in themselves, and thus, faith in the people … Read More
