Mental health / Mental Health & Wellbeing

Going Slightly Mad

At times I’m a little bit nuts. I have depression and complex PTSD. The most frequent response I get when I tell people that I’m ill is, “No you’re not.” I am, really, I have a psychiatrist and everything.

But I don’t fit the caricature of a person with a mental health problem. My hair is usually straight, my nails are often painted and I don’t own a straight jacket.

So I want to give people an insight into my world, so that the next time I tell someone that I’m sick, they say, “Oh really? That sucks.” Because it does, it really, really does.
