Depression has no face. I have struggled for longer than a year with anxiety that has affected my ability to be a mum, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend and to do my job. I’m a nurse and took on a diploma to be a specialist public health nurse. I came to a point where I pretty much couldn’t do any of these. But.
I have a smile on my face so that’s ok. Reality is, I hate that I am not the best mum I can be, I’m a wife that doesn’t meet what I feel are my husbands expectations, a daughter who could do more for her mum, a sister who should talk more, a friend that needs to reach out even though my head is not my own and most of all a nurse. I want to thank you all for your selfless acts, bravery and to anyone else who may be feeling like I am and is battling on, I salute you all. #mentalhealth #depression #anxiety #protectournhs #mindyourhead - 4 minutes ago
