I’m 24 today. An age I didn’t think I’d see with how bad I’ve been lately with my mental health. I was always terrified to grow up as a kid. Terrified to see another birthday as I got older. I spent last year alone in my room, and this year is no different. I’m mentally exhausted. And physically tired. One thing I’m happy about though recently. I did what I pledged to do. I talked about the Five Signs with my friends. We agreed to reach out to one another and to our families and friends. We shared our experiences and our stories about mental health and just life in general. It’s these conversations that will make a difference to someone’s life. Even just reaching out to someone to ask how they are makes a difference. It shows you’re willing to listen. Or that you at least care about them and how they are. I’m sitting here today with several self harm scars. Some recent. Without my friends reaching out to me and being there for me, I don’t know what state I would be in today. I want to serve as an example, or at least, show that things can be okay. Some days may be better than others and some may be worse than others. The main thing is that we try and walk through that storm. And I’ll walk through it with anyone who needs that support. I’ll hold that umbrella over you when you need it most. #MentalHealth #Anxiety #Depression #ChangeMentalHealth #IAmTheChange #FiveSigns

I won’t be uploading a selfie, but I want to support this campaign regardless.

Three months ago, I was hospitalised for 72 hours for suicidal thoughts and urges. Since then, I have begun to slowly heal. Days and nights are sometimes excruciatingly painful. But they go on, and so do I.

I deserve healing and wellness and so does everyone else.
