It has affected my life in many senses; in the beginning my husband didn't understand me, and my family and friends were distant.
My greatest source of support has been to start believing in a higher power, along with learning to relax and to meditate. I have also had CBT therapy which helped myself and my husband understand my mental health problems better.
My hope for the future is that I stay how I am now, which is pretty good.
I'm taking 5 on Time to Talk Day because it helps people to know that they are not alone and it's important to speak out.
This blog is part of the Time to Talk Day 2015 #Take5ToBlog initiative.
