Anxiety and Depression

Hi there!

I know I haven't posted in a while, so much has been going on which I won't go into but I wanted to say hey and talk about a few things I have been struggling with of recent.

Blogging and viewing other bloggers videos has shown me how many people suffer with these issues (mental health). It has definitely made me feel more normal having such issues.

I have had depression since the age of 13 and for the life of me I could not tell you why. All i know is, it subsides and then comes back whenever it fancies. I have had counselling before which didn't help me and now I am on a few tablets to sort me out.

I guess I just wanted to say, it is nothing to be scared of. My friends think I am the strongest person around but deep down inside everyone will feel down sometimes. It is not something to hide or be embarrassed of. I promise.

Things that have helped me when I have been struggling...
1. Don't stay in bed, even if you are staying in the house all day. Get dressed, get your makeup on and then you will have already achieved something!

2. Don't look at facebook, instagram etc unless you know it will make you happy. It is very easy when you are down to look at social media and think that everyones life is better than yours. It's not. They just don't post the crappy stuff.

3. Don't do anything you don't want to. Now I say this loosely, you still need to tidy your room and make your bed but don't let people put you in situations until you are ready. You need to let them know why you don't want to so they can understand for next time.


You are not going to feel like anyone understands you when you are down but trust me it gets better, let people try and understand and they might be able to help.

Oh and tea makes everything better :) x
