This year has been tough for me. I don’t share a lot of personal things online but I have been struggling a lot with anxiety. I have been on medication since March and had cognitive behavioural therapy to try and retrain my brain.
It has been really rough and I haven’t spoken to many people about it as I was ashamed. I have realised over time that it isn’t something to be ashamed about and I am glad I finally went to the doctor to get the help I needed.
Looking back, I wish I had asked for help sooner. I feel so much better and happier in myself and I am looking forward to a fresh start in 2020 with a new outlook in life. I am where I want to be.
I have a husband that loves me, we have five beautiful pets and a lovely home together and I am content. I couldn’t ask for anything more. Here’s to the cliche new year, new me.
I am still trying to find out the true me, no matter how many hair colour changes I made or tattoos and piercings I got, I was never happy with how I looked. I am now able to look at myself in a different way now and I am happy.
Anxiety had been building up inside for a very long time along with my migraines and I was also diagnosed with the start of depression. Things aren’t always how they seem. You would look at me online or in real life and think I was ok but things were eating me up inside. It really has been a tough year coming to terms with my issues but I really am glad I got the help I need and it took a lot to admit I needed it.
Don’t ever be scared to ask for help. Here’s to 2020 and life getting better….
