#StateOfMyMentalHealth –

I asked 16 friends on Monday. 21.8.17 and Tuesday 22.8.17 to describe their Mental Health in 140 characters or a little more.
It’s all anonymous, but it’s  a representation of how people describe their Mental Health as of now .

I did it for the purpose of a snapshot and will do it again in September!
Here goes!!

“Taking each day as it comes, depression no longer defines who I am but what I have managed to fight #StateOfMyMentalHealth

“I’m 2 people: mum, housework, cheery, feeding kids + suicidal spiralling into destruction sick brain hiding inside the mum planning to end her life”
“Everything is a cause of anxiety to any degree. Bulimia back like a long happily forgotten enemy”
#StateOfMyMentalHealth

“Right now I am mentally frazzled. I need some time to stop, re-focus and breathe”
#StateOfMyMentalHealth

“I enjoyed work in the first time in months, my appetite is back and I’m feeling better. It might not last but today is a good day” #StateOfMyMentalHealth

“ONGOING, SUFFOCATING, BEWILDERING, DEBILITATING, ALIENATING, A JOURNEY.I have Mr Irrational & Mr Rational having a constant ongoing battle” #StateOfMyMentalHealth

“Looking after your mental health requires a gentle balancing of the scales & being aware that even a slight breeze can tilt its axis”

“My mental health tends to wax & wane from tolerable levels to all out flashing beacons. It’s always there bubbling beneath the surface”

“Strong, poised, in control. Yet at the same time, fragile & vulnerable. A delicate, energy-sapping balancing act”
