he is my pet the cat lorenzo, he helps me every day with his love and silent support, the days are almost good with him... #notalone #EmotionalSupportCat



So, if you try to laugh, smile, and talk to people more, you could get a close friend. this helps a lot if you think and are alone in the situation, if you have nobody, get somebody. if you think that's a weird example, then, your wrong..I encourage you all to think about it when you feel depressed. just think...."Why am I like this? What made me like this? Do I need help?" And maybe you should try to come to the conclusion I'm thinking and say..."Hey, I can do this." if you CAN'T, get help. The only way out is if you think about it all. I'm not a docter, but, I just thought through this.


Long road to go

Today is the beginning of #MentalHealthAwareness month, however the consultation I just had with my local GP shows there is still a long way for the NHS to go. It was my first meeting with this counsellor who was condescending, patronising, rolled his eyes constantly and even alluded to the fact he does not believe depression is a real thing. He proceeded to give me examples of disorders I might have, and told me I would need to just figure it out - that he was no expert in fact. It’s meetings like this, so hard for people like myself to even be present for, that are so incredibly damaging. I am so grateful that I am in a better space and have managed to not be overly triggered by this clumsy and inappropriate meeting - but I am back on the bottom of the waiting list for the NHS mental health services all over again - I guess I am writing this to to vent mostly, and also to say I have the upmost respect and support for anyone else trying to get help for mental illness via the NHS currently. Keep fighting, keep making a nuisance of yourself. The more of us that do, the more they will have to listen to us and help. #MentalHealthAwareness #Talk #anixetyawareness #depressionawareness #depressionhelp #keepfighting #BeStrong
