- Just got one of these lovely shirts in the mail. In such a high pressured world, sometimes reaching out to someone and having a conversation could lead to a life changing moment. If someone is feeling a bit flat, maybe it begins with "are you ok?" Every day I work with vulnerable people and have been for years, plus being a bloke and along with my own personal experiences. I can't describe how critical it is to reach out for each other. September 14th is @RUOKday and I'm proudly wearing this shirt and sharing the message around my work place and my community to inspire people to reach out for support if they need it. #RUOK #RUOKDay #mentalhealth #everyday #inspiration #conversations

- Today I start taking antidepressants. I'm nervous as this isn't a choice I have taken lightly. I've been told that it can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks until I start noticing a difference. For the first few weeks they can make you worse as the medication tries to balance out your brain. I was also told that this medication might not give me the results I want which means I will need to try another. It can take a few months for someone to find the right medication for them. I will need to be on them for at least 12 months. It's a lot to take in especially when you have Anxiety. ➖ I've been suffering from mental illness on and off for the past 7 years! The last two months its been the worst it's ever been. My life has never been so fragile and I decided I need help. I've been hesitant to take medication over the years but this time I don't think I have any other choice. What I'm experiencing is an illness and it needs to be treated as such. There is no doubt in my mind that my brain isn't working probably anymore and it's missing vital chemicals to function. Sometimes you need a little extra help and that's okay! There is no shame in admitting that you need help, sometimes it's vital! 🌼💕 ➖ #mentalillnessawareness #mentalhealth #mentalillness #depression #sucidal #anxiety #loveyourself #takecareofyourself #gethelp #ruok #noshame #postivevibes #stress #medication #antidepressant #flower #believeinyourself #youmatter

- I'm surprised how much my list has shrunk... but I guess we're handed these challenges in life to find out who's worthy. However I think I am the luckiest girl in the world, my husband has been the best support anyone could ask for and oddly enough so have his friends. His friends have visited more, his friends have talked to me more (let me tell you in person these guys just know how to make you forget all your problems) Hell you would not believe how amazing hubby's mates have been through my ever continuous recovery and I made some pretty great and unexpected friendships along the way.. many people think if you ignore me or distance me I'll eventually come running back for your friendship, well no. You stay through all the shit to get to that field of tulips 🌷 #thankful #gratitude #keepingitreal #chronicillness #ruok #alwaysbeenatomboy #tomboy #nerdsaremypeople

- As I’m working on the digital course about overcoming depression, I’m revisiting some of the books that changed my perspective on depression. One of them is “Anatomy of an Epidemic” by Robert Whitaker. . This quote is from a girl he interviewed for the book. I wish I knew her so I could hug her and give her a fist bump. . For years, I too was “watering” the weed that was my depression. I got better once I started attacking it at it’s roots. . P.S. - at the end of the interview, that same girl said that she was starting to look to other people for help because she had lost faith in the medical system. Like me, it kept her feeling broken. PEER SUPPORT and SELF-HELP work. . If you’re interested in the course, comment or send me a DM. This first batch starts this week but I plan on running them regularly in the future.

- People often ask me what my tattoo means.... This one is quite personal and has a bit of a story behind it. I don't mind talking about it, but i do find it difficult to explain its meaning in just a few words, especially to a stranger who doesn't know my history. So usually when I say it's a demon 👿 I get mixed responses. Some people accept that, but others keep pushing for further information. So here's a little backstory for all my lovely followers 😊 I got this tattoo when I was about 20. At the time, I was going through severe depression which I had been experiencing since I was around 14. I started self harming at age 16, which continued until I was around 20, and I got this tattoo after I'd stopped, but was still extremely depressed. It is a demon, my own design, and it has a matching design in the form of an angel. I decided to have only the demon done (one day I might be worthy of the angel, too) and to get it on my wrist, as that is where my depression manifested physically on my body, among other places. She reminds me of how I suffered, but also of how strong I was (and am), to be able to pull myself out of that hole. Thanks to the help of a wonderful psychiatrist, medication and of course my amazing friends and family 💗 I am able to call myself one of the lucky ones, who didn't succumb to the negative voices in my head. And as many times as I tried, I didn't take enough pills, or draw enough blood to end my life... I am grateful everyday that I survived when so many people don't. A stranger once asked me why I would want to remind myself of such awful things... at the time I didn't know what to say. But now I know it is because we are made up of our past. All our triumphs and all our failures. Why would I want to forget how I got to where I am today? Happy, healthy, and excited for the next phase of my life, whatever it brings...? I beat depression years ago, but it will always be part of my story. This year I'll be 30. Some people don't make it that far. I'm grateful that I have 🙌 #depressionawareness #tattoo #ruok

- Yes ladies and gents...that is a bump! 14 weeks (and counting). Who says having kids is easy? Oh wait no one says that! For those of you with anxiety I'd like to know if it got worse during pregnancy? Mine certainly has. And it happened last time too. I just don't cope with all the changes in the body, all the uncertainty, the fact that I have NO CONTROL! Last time it did get better but the first part is/was a struggle 🤕🤰🏻on a lighter note, how cool is this @targetaus skirt?

- My best friend told me that in her Facebook feed, 3 dedications to suicides came up in a row. They were all male and all fathers. UPL Productions made this video 'Stuck in a Box' for @ruokday to show that when a lonely experience becomes a shared experience, some of the heaviness is lifted. Can we prevent suicide? If you notice someone out of sorts, say something. If you need advice on how to approach your loved one, friend or someone at work, google your national prevention line and if it's urgent dial emergency services. *Australia Lifeline 13 11 14 *America 1-800-273-8255 *UK +44 (0) 8457 90 90 90 *New Zealand 0508 82 88 65 .
