Well I got more sleep last night than usual, although it was a restless, troubled, sleep with really vivid dreams and constant waking up. Last night I had warm milk and cinnamon before I went to bed and it seemed to do something.
Firstly insomnia is driving me barmy. I was up at 3am eating toast – and if I could have got a bag of chips I would have done. I got some sleeping tablets from the GP last week and I took one over the weekend….I still woke up during the night and I was inches away from a panic attack when I was out.
I’m not going to lie it’s been a rough year and one that I won’t be sad to see the back of. It has taught me so much about myself though and I believe I’ve become a better person – most of the time.
Today is World Mental Health Day and little did I know this time last year that I have my own issues with mental health.
Yes I know you’ll all be wondering about the title of this blog post but I can honestly say that I’m grateful I have depression.
