Meet Lulu, The Green Fairy – Painted Brain’s UK Correspondent


Being a sufferer of clinical depression, I spent twelve of my younger years on anti-depressants before finally taking control for myself in my early thirties in order to seek alternative routes to mental wellness.
Now at forty-six, it has been sixteen years since I had a prescription from a doctor, choosing instead high strength omega3 EPAs and a healthy diet. No longer medicated, I find solace in reading, writing and simply pondering any ideas that flow from my busy brain. I achieved a BA with Honors in Art History and Humanities and earned a Certificate in Contemporary Science as an adult learner.
I have also co-researched a history book about country house technology, and I am fascinated by all things astronomical and the high energy universe, and I’m always keen to open my mind to new areas of research in many fields. I am only human though, and I am always aware of every part of myself and how important it is to help myself every day to keep the possibility of relapse to a minimum.
Currently a full time caregiver and home educator, I find loving and caring from home the most fulfilling work I have ever done, and I wouldn’t change a thing, past or present.

Lulu, The Green Fairy lives in Northern England, and is the new UK correspondent for Painted Brain News.
