Mental Health

1 in 4 adults are affected by mental illness. I think its time to break the stigma around something so many people suffer in silence with.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your struggle. This video brought me to tears because the pain of feeling so heavy and low is far too familiar. I myself have dealt with bouts of severe panic disorder, agoraphobia and depression. At the moment I mostly feel fine and that really is the best feeling. I do live with the fear that any moment I will lose control and the anxiety is always there lurking but I've found ways to fight it and cope and I try to focus on the relief I currently feel. Mental illness runs in my family both my grandmother and mother have suffered with anxiety and depression so fortunately I have had a lot of support but I realize that is not the case for everyone so again I want to thank you for sharing and normalizing this because it's not always the people you think that suffer and I think people assume if you are beautiful and have a nice life that it's just being spoiled to feel depressed and anxious but it really is a chemical imbalance that can happen to anyone and I try not to feel guilty or blame myself when my mind plays tricks on me. I really enjoy your blog and appreciate you xx

    1. Thank you for sharing that Emily!
      I can definitely empathize with that feeling of anxiety at your brain flipping out at any moment. It seems you have good coping skills/support so just try and focus on that when you get anxious about the future... its so great to hear you have a wonderful support system <3
