It’s been a while since I’ve written a health update. I’ve suffered from anxiety and depression since the beginning of the year. The anxiety was always there but kept well hidden. The depression, well that was something that arrived out of the blue.
People drop into your life, people drop out of it. Some appear just when you need them and it feels like you’ve known them for years. A kind word, a helping hand, a smile – it all goes a long way when you have mental health issues (and I still hate that phrase!)
Yet another health update. To those who don’t want to be dragged down this is an upbeat one. Firstly I’ve had a really good week. I’ve been inspired to take out the camera again and I’ve had one full nights sleep, both of which are nothing short of a miracle.
Since being diagnosed with anxiety I’ve spent quite a lot of time looking at the way I behave, it’s quite therapeutic in a way, it’s also quite annoying.
So today is World Health Day and I thought it was time I did an update on how I’m feeling.
Since I wrote about my anxiety I’ve been overwhelmed with the response. I’m still struggling but I’m keeping a positive outlook and there are so many good things out there.
