Mental Health.

I feel like this post is way overdue.

Mainly because I know everyone at some point has struggled with a mental health problem in their lives. With the passing of Robin Williams two years ago, there has been more public acknowledgement of mental health issues. Why am I addressing this in a post?

Well..

There is a reader who follows me and I follow them… who is struggling with a mental health issue. I’m not sure if they are aware if they have a mental health issue. What I do know is that they feel alone and they feel trapped in their head. I know they feel their blog is their escape from their mental illness and reality. They feel not a single person in their life understands.

I want this person who may be reading this post to see this and know:

I understand.

You are NOT alone.

Six years ago, I was right where you are, right now.

I felt like no one understood. I felt like I was alone. I was drowning in everything. I was on the verge of leaving everything behind.

I had a note.

I was a risk to myself.

For all I know, I was a risk to others.

But I knew I had to ask for help. That I was aware of.

I was at rock bottom.

I asked for help because I didn’t know what else to do.

Now….

I still have my struggles, but I am back to where depression does not have a hold on me. I am whole again.

Ask for help.

Talk to someone.

You are not alone.

One thought on “Mental Health.

  1. Talk to someone is the first advice I give people with MS too. It really is powerful to find out that you are not alone, and there are people that support you out there.
