"You're Only 22" | My Mental Health Story

14:03 0
"You're Only 22" | My Mental Health Story

Hello loves,

I know it's been a while and there is a reason for that, a reason which I've been contemplating talking about for so long. 

This reason I'm writing this post is I want to talk about something very important to me, something I've been struggling with for the last couple of months.. Mental Health
I know so many people, close to me and not, who struggle with their mental health on a daily basis, whether that be with anxiety, depression, bi-polar or any other form of mental health illness. However, I never thought that I would be that person, I know it sounds so bad to say but I always grew up thinking "That'll never happen to me, I'm a happy person" or so I thought.

You see, 4 months ago I was diagnosed with Depression. For months I knew there was something not right, I was always down but I couldn't quite figure out why, still to this day I don't know why. But that's what I wanted to talk about, sometimes there isn't always a reason why, sometimes it's just a because

So many people have said "Sure how could you be depressed, you're only 22." , "You have a great job" or "You have a wonderful family" and why yes I'm not denying any of those things, sometimes your mental health just takes a turn, it doesn't care what life you're living or what job you have, it just changes. No one knows why it just happens. And when it happens its so lonely, even in a room filled with people who love you, I never knew I could feel so alone. 

A lot of the time what you see people portraying on social media is so far from the truth of their real life, heck those of you know follow my socials I bet would never have guessed what was going on. People say that a picture can paint a thousand words, I believe a picture can hide a million thoughts. 

I'm going on a bit of a ramble now, basically what I wanted to say to you reading this is, I know what it feels like. I've cried my tears, I've had my dark thoughts. I know. And although it may not seem like it now. it gets better, I promise. I'm still not 100% the happy girl I once was, heck I don't know if I'll ever be fully her again but what I do know is my eyes have been opened. I still have my bad days where I don't want to leave my bed or talk to anyone but I do it because the world will still turn even if I don't. 

One more thing, if you notice someone close to you being quieter that usual or acting differently, reach out to them. Sometimes all it takes is a simple "hey, how are things?" from someone to get them talking and get them on the right track to feeling better. No one wants to be left in the dark, and honestly that's the only way I can describe depression is darkness.

Remember! There is no shame in asking for help. It's okay not to feel okay.

I will leave all my socials down below and if ever you need to talk, I'm just a message away ❤️

Getting Back Into Routine

Getting Back Into Routine
Hello loves,

So it's currently 6:30am while I'm writing this, its my first day back to college after a nice long Christmas break off so I'm just sat here typing this and sipping my coffee. This is a little unplanned, random post that I had no intention of writing but it just kind of happened when I sat down this morning.

So if you read my Growing Up To Soon Post you will know that I have a pretty hectic life, 5 animals (It was 3 but we got two hamsters!) , a house, full time education, part time job and a tiny bit of a social life. I'm going to tell you all how I manage (at least sometimes).

I've never been someone who loved getting up early, I still don't, not while it's still dark out at 8am. But I'm trying to train my body to wake up at 5:30 every morning because I have to either be in college for 9am 4 days a week and in work at 8am the other 3 days so having some hours to get my shit together seems like a good idea.

I'm not one of those people who prepares the night before, I'm more of a run around the house 10 minutes before I need to leave looking for my SD card. But I have noticed that doing certain little buts the night before makes for an easier morning.

Normally I will:

  • Pick up the house, put away anything that I won't be using the next morning. 
  • I'll set out my cup ready for my coffee in the morning so its just a matter of hitting a button, 
  • I usually load & run the dishwasher the night before so everything is fresh and clean for the morning. 
Silly little things makes for an easier, stress free morning.

My Routine in the morning pretty much goes like:
  • Wake up at 5:30 but lay in bed until 5:50 checking all social media
  • Get up and make some coffee ( I can't make the bed until Ryan gets up)
  • At this point I'll either do something productive, like today. Or I'll watch some YouTube videos.
  • Feed all the animals and start getting ready for the day.
I'm not really someone who eats breakfast in the morning, I generally don't get hungry until around 11am.

That's pretty much all I do to, ensure that I have what needs to be done done and after that I can relax, and play with the animals. 

That's it for me for now, 
Until next time my loves,

Louise, 💗
