A brave and inspirational mate Mitchell Paterson sharing his battle to create awareness 🖤. Love you Mitch stay strong & stay you ⚓️
I’m suffering from anxiety mental health issues and severe depression, I am not ashamed of it anymore and it’s not a good place to be in. People don’t believe me when I tell them because I am happy and laughing round them and try to make others laugh. At times I struggle. I can be hard to live with or be around when I get this way and I know it. I try my best to control it and mostly succeed. I manage to get on top of it and control things but at times I break. So if u see me and I’m quiet or don’t speak, I’m not upset with u, and u haven’t upset me. I don’t mean to be rude, I may just need a moment to myself.
So please if ur my friend just bare with me. It’s OK not to be ok, tell someone ur not OK. Everyone says, “if u need anything, don’t hesitate, I’ll be there for u…” so I’m going to make a bet, without being pessimistic, I wish my friends that u will put this on ur wall.
Whether you suffer with it or not.
You just have to copy, not share! I want to know who I can count on… And I’m sure it’ll be less than 25. Write ” done” in comments when u do.
It’s mental illness awareness month. ♥
