I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell - Matchbox 20, Unwell
As Mental Health Week draws to a close, I thought I'd take this time to share a few things I've learned through living with, studying and helping others with mental health difficulties.
Unlike Charlie Brown above, I don't know that I've ever been cheered up by someone else's depression, but even after all these years, I can still find comfort in knowing that I'm not alone. However, that thought also brings me to my first point.
As I write I'm starting to realize that I could go on forever with this. It's been just over 10 years since my first diagnosis, but looking back, I think I lived with a lot of my mental health problems most of my life, I just didn't realize it. And in that time, I believe I've learned and experienced a lot. I may have to do a follow-up piece to prevent this from going on and on. I do hope that you found this to be helpful and informative. And please, if you are struggling with a mental health problem and don't know where to turn or don't know what to do next, do reach out to me or to someone else. I don't have all the answers, but if I can't help you directly, I'm sure I can point you in the right direction.
