I was incredibly honoured to be contacted by the lovely Caroline from Mermen for Mind, a heart warming project run in memory of Ellen Scott. The team have created a fantastic Charity Calender to support Mind the mental health charity and In this post I will tell you more about Ellen, the Mermen for Mind Project and why it’s a cause so very close to my heart.
Hello ladies and gents, how are you all? Very well I hope. I’m back today with a bit of a rambly post, I feel the urge to get my thoughts out, share some of my musings and in doing so hopefully release some of the anxieties and tension I seem to be holding onto at the moment.
My history with anxiety spans over close to 15 years so it’s not unusual for me to get stuck in a rut, hit an anxious slump and go through the ‘down’ side of the many ups and downs that living with an anxiety disorder brings, I get through it and pick myself back up again, but at the moment this slump feels never ending.
Lately my anxiety seems to have resurfaced and quite honestly has got me feeling a bit down in the dumps! So I’ve decided to set myself some goals for July, things that I have avoided due to this little slump I’m in, things that ultimately will help get me back on track, things that help ease the stress and worry that comes with the anxiety and that I know I’ll feel very positive about achieving!
I feel I’ve taken a step back with my Anxiety lately, or 1 step forward 10 steps back! If you’ve read my Mental health awareness post (I’ll link it at the bottom) you’ll know I do have a bit of a history with anxiety and panic attacks and was diagnosed with G.A.D (Generalised Anxiety Disordor) in my late teens. It does fluctuate, highs, lows, ups and downs, good days and bad days, sometimes I can go months without it affecting me and then bam!! It hits me right in the face and once again becomes a daily struggle!
Mental Health Awareness
This is a tough one, Although I really want to post this, I’ve put off writing it for days simply because I just don’t know where to begin! It’s a long post but it would mean a lot to me for you to stick with it to the end!
