This is not something I necessarily wanted to share publicly, and I feel quite vulnerable talking about it. But given it is World Mental Health Day and even the Royals are trying to help fight the stigma of mental illness, I thought it was time to share my story.
There have been numerous ‘signs’ recently that made me think it was time share. I also feel I can no longer present an authentic version of myself if I don’t share where I am coming from.
In order to tell me story I filmed a video explaining what happened. It was incredibly difficult and upsetting to make so I hope you can watch and read this with kindness.
If you are going through any kind of mental illness right now please know that you are not alone, that you do not need to be ashamed and that it is legitimate an illness as any physical illness.
