Haiku Hope part 6 – Sweat

Well, you must’ve known I’d create a Haiku about this weather. Even though I’m indoors it’s affecting a huge portion of my life…not least my sleep. I struggle to doze off in a cloud of close humidity, then wake up at 3am and need my dressing gown because I’m cold.

You can’t win.

It’s 8am now and I’m exhausted. It’s even worse that I can’t enjoy the sunshine in a pub garden or at the seaside (both things is daydream about regularly).

So instead of doing those lovely things, I’ve written a Haiku for you about the sweating.

How pleasant!



Indoors with chub rub
Sweat on my clothes, hair, and boobs
Twenty four seven


Lmao – this is genuinely how I’m coping with the humidity. I thought my years of chub rub were over, but apparantly when the Met Office says anything above 30 degrees, my body finds new places to chafe and get uncomfortable.

Being chubby in this heat is no fun at all.

Talcum powder shares must be going through the roof.

Thanks for reading! ☀️🌞😎

Hi! I'm Steph, an amateur writer and illustrator specialising in Mental Health and being a self-confessed Spoonie. My website is home to any successful fiction I create, with stories that have won so far covering difficult subjects such as baby loss and mental health in grief as well as some funny and heart-warming tales when I get the inspiration. Every drawing and picture on my website was created by me. I spend a lot of time coming up with illustrations to accompany all of my posts and pages. I try to create original content across all of my channels, whether I'm writing about my own fiction or just generally musing on mental health or my own issues. I want to be part of the change because I believe the understanding of MH in the UK is getting better, but has a very long way to go. By being honest about my own struggles and symptoms I think others will relate and hopefully it will encourage them to talk to someone and get the help and support they need. Long term my goal is to help children too, help them understand their own mental health and how to help with the mental health of those around them. I live in the UK with my partner, daughter and dog, I swear frequently and I adore a well made, traditional, gooey, chocolatey, delicious brownie.
