Mental Health Awareness

Yesterday was Mental Health Awareness day, I didn’t get chance to write anything to post on the day but I’m here now.

I’ve got a few favourite quotes that I’d like to post on here. I would love to say that they help me out when I need it, and sometimes they do, but they don’t always. They are nice to look over when I feel like I need some support.

For the past few years I’ve been struggling highly with anxiety. In 2016/17 it got to the point at my first Uni where I couldn’t leave the room, and I wasn’t eating or sleeping. I felt so alone and like everyone was judging or hating me; like they all had friends and I was out on my own.

At the moment things are getting better, I am much happier at my second University and have settled in well and made some friends. That’s not to say that everything is perfect though. Ironically, yesterday was a pretty difficult day for me because I started having a mini breakdown in a workshop.

But anyway, enough about me. I just want to let everyone know that I am here for anyone, if and when they need me. It doesn’t matter whether we’ve spoken before or not, sometimes it’s easier to speak to a complete stranger about your feelings and have someone there for you.

I am slowly getting into the process of being able to recognise my anxiety, to not be ashamed of it, and be able to talk about it. When I get a bit better I would love to write some blog posts about my tips and experiences.
