To any of my friends and family suffering in silence. More people than you can ever imagine suffer with mental health issues. I am clinically diagnosed with panic disorder and social anxiety disorder. The best thing I've ever done is talk about it and get the help I needed. 3 years since CBT I am stronger healthier and happier than ever. Don't be scared to ask for help, it takes a brave strong and self aware individual to take that step. You are stronger than you think.
Okay so when i was 19 years old people bullied me on Facebook and in the end I staring cutting myself with glass and it hurt a a lot and I got sectioned by the police and when I was 16 years old I was about to self harm with a knife.all I'm trying to stay is please don't self harm you could end up being sectioned by the police and trust me u don't want that so please think before it's too late ❤️❤️
As a sufferer of depression and anxiety, I want to educate people on what it's really like to fight a constant battle over something you cannot control. I want people to know that it's not just "being shy" or "a little bit sad", I want to explain to them in my own words and experiences the daily struggle against mental health and why it is not something to be overlooked or stigmatised.
I will continue to share my experiences with mental health, the struggles the help and the support that I have been through. To continue teaching my children to feel safe enough to talk about their feelings and to encourage others to feel able to talk about theirs to them or someone who can help.
I am a yoga therapist in Plymouth - Devon.
There are many of us specialising in Yoga Therapy for Improved Mental Health - I am trying to soon run my 12 week programme for a local GP practice to have a non medicinal option to give to those with poor mental health. I would like to volunteer at an event or even utilise my programme for you if required :). I suffer from Anxiety but my yoga controls it and I've never needed medication.
I have suffered with mental health issues since 2014 and the best way I can describe my illness is it's like having a black void of darkness.
This void is a living breathing thing that's constantly changing and shifting so for example some days it can be as tiny as a pea and you won't feel it at all, other days it can be so big that it envelops you whole and even the most simple of tasks becames impossible.
Mental health is so indiscriminate that it affects so many people and the stigma still surrounds it.
If I think there is anything wrong with friends, family even people I barely know I will make it my business to help them I will not let anyone face their problems alone. I am lucky to have friends in my corner I will be in their and anyone's corner if then need help no one should ever feel alone and I will always be there for people who need me.
Mental health is a wide variety of things don't think you're not worthy of help because your not standing on a bridge or have enough pills in your hands, please if you feel so low you have thoughts or do things that you wouldn't usually do, seek help. For you are loved, so loved in this world. you will cry, you will be scared but you will be empowered, strong, tall. You are worthy of life and a positive one.
I'm a sufferer of depression see it in others who won't admit it. A strong hand on the slippery ladder might not save you but it will save you from falling further down. I will pledge to help ANYONE who wants to talk and I will be checking up on my friends and family just so they know.... They are not alone.
