Mental health is gradually becoming a less taboo subject than it used to be, which has to be a good thing.

When you first face the diagnosis of a mental health issue, it can be scary, as you’ll feel like you’re on your own and no-one understands or knows what you’re going through. The thing is, when we actually open up to others, you’ll gradually discover that in face even those you’d never have ever though would suffer from a mental health issue, have at some time, faced the same struggle you currently face.

You may be surprised by the support they offer you and the reassurance you feel, as you’ll suddenly realised what you’re feeling is perfectly normal, and you’re definitely not the only person who has ever felt that way. That does not of course mean I am in anyway am dismissing how someone with a mental health issue feels, as I myself have been there, have felt entirely on my own, where no-one understood how I felt, so I really do understand.

In my experience talking to someone really does help, so if you can talk to someone, as talking really i the best medicine.
