The Black Dog and Me

We have a 1 in 4 chance of suffering from mental health issues throughout our life and yet there is still the stigma and confusion around it; am I mental? Am I sane? Do I need to be institutionalised?
There are many causes of depression and anxiety but there is no wrong or right way to treat it. Medication can really help, I see it as you are stuck in a hole in the ground and the medication gives you the materials of a ladder to get you out of there but you still have to do the work. That is when therapy can help, it can be difficult to find what works for you.
Yet, there is a lot of peer support out there. When I first experienced mental health issues there wasn’t much out there for me but I was to find that the internet was great at offering me this peer led support. This level of support allows you to be aware of others that are in a similar condition and develop better strategies of dealing with things.
You are more than your diagnosis and it does not define you as a person. It may influence how your version of the world looks and how others look at you but being honest and open about your experiences not only helps others it helps you grow as a person.
That’s why I am writing my memoirs and I hope to share my insights with you and help you realise you are not alone. I experienced bullying and other trauma during my teenage years that impacted me as a person and those experiences morphed my view of the world leading to some quite poor strategies that did not help. By writing my story it helped me heal and grow.
If you require any support do not hesitate to reach out for help. There is lots of support out there, reach out to someone you trust and tell them how you feel. If you are a concerned family member, don’t be afraid of asking how someone is; this can be a big relief, the person may not respond immediately but they will know that you are there for them.

A Personal View

Reflecting on challenges

A personal post but please stick with me.

I’ve had a stressful year and it’s gone by so quick – yet I’ve got to December and I’m winning.

A series of events escalating to a recurrence of anxiety left me emotionally spent. Yet, after mindful rest (yes that’s a thing) I changed my view and moved on.

That’s Prelude Metamorphosis for you. And I can help you learn yo be mindful of the situation and you can overcome this anxiety.

My journey isn’t over, nor is yours.
I have plans for next year and I will accomplish them because I know what makes me tick.

Come and work with me to be a beautiful you inside and out.
