Out of all my mental health conditions, I honestly think that depression is the one I find hardest to manage. Once it takes hold, no amount of logic can fight it and it can leave me feeling worthless, drained and wanting to give up. I’ve tried lots of different techniques over the years, but the […]Read More
I’m actually writing this post while having a bad day with my mental health. Well in all fairness, it’s been a bad week!
