I spent a lot of time over the summer thinking about what my first blog post would be about. The function of this blog was not just to be my outlet but to help others who may have been or could currently be in my position. For me, reading about other people's experiences especially with something like anxiety or depression is very comforting. The most terrifying aspect of struggling with mental health is that feeling of being alone. Not just alone like there's no one around but alone in how you feel. As if no one else has felt the way you do now and that no one understands. It makes you feel insane. It's claustrophobic. There's no way I'm alone in feeling alleviation reading the stories of others' so this is my way of contributing and helping myself.
