The first time that I experienced mental health problems was when I realised that, no matter how hard I tried, I was unable to cope with every day occurrences. I was thinking, I hope that I can just get through the day. I felt alone while the rest of the world seemed to move on without me.
Every day my mental health impacts me. At my lowest I don't get out of bed or eat for days on end. Now I find going out difficult even if it is somewhere familiar and although I am fighting to overcome this, it is a tiring fight.
Mind helped me realise that I was not alone
