I first suffered with depression when I was in my late teens. I’m now 31 & I’ve suffered on & off. Currently I have been battling an episode of depression & anxiety for over a year now. This being the worst episode I have ever had.
Last year things began to get on top of me. I was tired all the time. Crying every day. I pushed everyone away.
At the beginning of August last year I took what would be over 5months sick leave from my work. During that time I reached my all time low.
I took to Instagram. I had enough of Facebook. I wanted to be more anonymous. I wanted to see what was out there. Reading other people’s battles encouraged me that I wasn’t alone. I took at first to writing in a journal & then later to posting quotes and pictures on Instagram with comments on my own battle.
I found writing to be an outlet for the thoughts in my head. I needed to be able to empty my head and writing has helped some.
This is why I have created this blog. To share my battle. My own story.
