Thank’s for stopping by.
I am about to tell you how this blog is going to help you and why this one is going to be more interesting than other mental health blogs. At least in my opinion. One is allowed to be a little confident, no? 🙂
Who is this blog for?
Firstly, I aspire to inspire and help people with depression, anxiety, stress as well as ADD/ADHD by letting you know, what I have done and still do to live my life as normal as possible. My greatest wish would be to inspire you to be the best version of you, that you can become in your life.
Secondly, I wish to create content and spread awareness about mental health issues to people, who do not suffer from any mental health condition. The tabu that still exists around our mental health is old-fashioned at best. I would like to help families and friends to understand what it feels like to have some sort of mental health illness and what it feels like to live with this every day.
And thirdly, I also wish to promote personal development and self-care ideas, that can help reduce and relieve symptoms of depression, anxiety, and stress.
All though, I want to point out that what has worked for me, may not necessarily work for you, as we are all unique. But I would still recommend giving the ideas a try.
Who am I to do this?
I am a 20-something young woman with a history of mental health problems. I have suffered from depression since I was a pre-teenager, all though at the time I didn’t know it was depression. I was bullied every day from 1st grade to 4th grade when I transferred to another school. From then on I wasn’t so much bullied, as I was ignored, but I still didn’t have many friends. I was too different from everyone else. This is where depression stems from.
I have ADD, which I have only discovered in my adult years, but discovering this mental health issue has lifted a huge burden off of my shoulders, as it explains so many things during my childhood and teenage years. It explains why I could never fit in anywhere, why I always felt wrong and why I didn’t have a lot of friends growing up. My history with ADD is a longer story, which I will eventually post on the site.
In the past 10 years, I have suffered from stress and anxiety along with depression. Being stressed, depressed, anxious and having ADD has made it difficult for me to function in a normal 9-5 job, which is why I am now trying to make a living online/remotely. This is a way for me to do what I want to do when I want to do it, and not because I have to do it in some sort of office job.
