talking about my mental health

Published on 12 July 2023 at 22:50

Tough thing to write about... I've finally accepted something I've known for a few months, due to everything that has happened over the last year I have been feeling very low and very down. As hard as it has been I have done everything possible to hide the problems and issues that I've been struggling with, but finally realisation hit me last night that the 'mask' I'd been wearing for a long time now needed to come off and I felt like it was time to make a change. this morning I contacted my doctors and was passed on to a mental health charity to get the support I need. This has been such a difficult thing to admit, as I say it's been something I've know for a while now but, didn't want to admit it, well I'm glad that it's now out in the open. Posted a video explaining it all on both Instagram and TikTok, the support from not just the MS community but everyone as a whole has been incredible!. Really can't explain how grateful I feel for all of the support that's been sent my way. Thinking back it really does seem to me that the catalyst for these feelings goes back to when I had to say goodbye to work, but it is my belief the whole thing goes back to the day the GP told me to expect the diagnosis of MS, don't think I ever actually processed what was happening but now I feel ready to, really and truly after asking for help today I've felt like a tiny weight has been lifted. Although I'm well aware this is going to take a lot of work to get through I'm fully ready for that.
