Fin-Dogg

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.
