Mental Health Update

I have decided that since I posted aN awful lot when I was in the midst of my nervous breakdown earlier in the year that I’d provide an update.

The short version is that I’m doing a hell of a lot better. This is not accidental, I’ve been working very hard to get to this point. I’ve taken the happy pills, I’ve seen the psychologist, I’ve done the self care, and I’ve been a lot kinder to myself than I probably ever have been before.

Am I cured? Nope. Not by a long shot. And I may never be. I’m OK with that though, it’s a work in progress, and I’ll keep at it.

(Especially since all theatre has stopped for the foreseeable future and that was my main form of self care. Oh, and I can’t get my nails done anymore, which was my back-up self care, but they are both VERY first world problems and I’ll manage without them)

Shout out to my main man Terry because I’m not exaggerating when I say that without his love and support I would absolutely not have managed to get even this far.

Also, thanks to everyone who messaged me to check in, and to share their own MH stories with me. I’ve got good people in my world, and I hope you all stay there.

Lastly, if you think you might need help with this sort of stuff, please talk to someone, anyone. Your GP is a great place to start, but my inbox is always open, the good people of Lifeline (13 11 14) are always there.

(This became way wordier than I intended. Peace out)
