I have had depression for around 6 years now, I don't know why it started and I don't know why it keeps coming back but it does. I can be doing great and that voice in my head will tell me how bad I am and how worthless I am. I'm dealing a lot better with it right now, I have good medication and brilliant support but I wasn't always this strong.
But this isn't about me. As it's Mental Health Awareness Week, I'm taking some time out today to reach out to you my dear readers.
So I wanted to let you know all know:
You are not alone in this. You are safe. Your thoughts and feelings are valid. You don't need to listen to that voice in your head. You are loved and wanted. Your are not broken. You can win this.
Az always asks me when I'm having a bad day "how's the noggin?", meaning how are you doing mentally?
Please feel free to comment below with anything you want to get off your chest. No judgement here.
So, how are you feeling today?
