My mental illness has affected my college education as getting up each morning is a battle.
My greatest source of support has been the friends that understand, the doctors and my tutors.
My hope for the future is that I will overcome my struggles and that everyone experiencing mental health issues feels able to talk and find the support they need.
I'm taking 5 on Time to Talk Day because I feel ready to talk about my experiences and help others, I also think it's important to raise awareness and let others know they are not alone.
This blog is part of the Time to Talk Day 2015 #Take5ToBlog initiative.
