I’m 27 and live in Kent, UK. I’m musical theatre obsessed, a fan of tiny wieners (dogs, cheeky!), and am partial to a bourbon biscuit or 12. I always wear mismatching socks and am a self confessed Pinterest addict.
anxiety | depression | panic | true story
More to the point of me starting this blog, I am an anxiety, depression and panic sufferer. I have been for as long as I can remember. My mental health hasn’t always been bad, but it’s certainly not been a breeze, either.
Through my experiences, I’ve learnt just how important it is to talk about mental health and take the time out to look after ourselves. There’s still a big stigma around mental health, and I can understand why – it’s misunderstood. The only way that we are going to beat it is through education. That’s why I write this blog. I hope to educate and share my story to make my contribution to this overdue change.
It’s not always easy to talk about these things, but my goodness can you reap in the rewards afterwards.
Over the years I have lost lots of people in my life, but I have also gained lots of friends who really mean the world to me. Rather unexpectedly, some of my closest friends were met through starting a simple conversation about our experiences with mental health.
1 in 4 adults will suffer from a mental health condition of some sort during their life time.
Whether you are one of these people or not, I really do urge you to stay with me and read my story. I want to educate, I want to relate, and I want to learn.
I hope to post regularly with different parts of my experience and focus on anything that may pop up from you guys along the way.
Stay with me here.
