I am sat here in Coffee #1 reading through another 6 blogs which I have been sent for my ‘blog takeover’ series. I seriously cannot believe the response which I have had in relation to this. The fact that people have openly and honestly put their lives and stories out there for people to read is truly remarkable. People say that I inspire them, but I have been inspired and emotionally moved by what those who have written have gone through.
My idea behind this series was to encourage people to write, to share and to smash away existing stigma and barriers around mental health. Thanks to those of you who have shared and to those of you who have taken the time to read. It really means a lot. If this helps one person to seek help or to talk then it has been worthwhile. I know that all of these blogs are relatable, whether you are suffering from depression, anxiety, postnatal depression, bipolar disorder, OCD, or any other form of mental illness.
The series will continue for another week or more. This does not mean that it is the end of this idea. I want to keep this going. I want this to be an interactive site where we can all still share, talk and encourage each other.
Please keep sending me your journeys. I am new to all of this so if there is anything you think I can develop let me know. I have ideas for a different type of ‘series’ but I really want to keep this going.
Thanks again xx
