  • Question
Mental Illness Do you ever feel embarrassed or ashamed of your mental illness..?

This is something that comes up for me quite frequently. I am often in situations, usually at work, where my mental illness becomes embarrassing.

I work in a predominantly male environment which makes things like dealing with anxiety and panic attacks quite tricky.

I know deep down that these aren’t really my hang-ups and things can never change unless I am vocal, but it can be difficult.

  • Question
Depression Have you ever cancelled plans because of your depression?

Have you ever cancelled plans because of your depression?

I certainly have. This is a little note to say that it is ok. It doesn’t matter that you couldn’t get to the cinema with friends tonight, or you had to pass on that meal out. There will be other opportunities to do these things and true friends will never abandon you.
