Hey, I’m Sarah!
For the past 3 years I have had a mix of depression and anxiety (danxiety).
It took me far longer than it should have to realise that I had danxiety. Something just didn’t feel quite right in my life, and I constantly had a low mood. I thought that if I could just change my job, living situation or relationship that I would start to feel normal again…….
Was I depressed? Surely not……… depression sufferers were the people in American sitcoms who would sit crying in the corner of the self-help aisles in the library. Right?
WRONG. It was me.
For the past 3 years I have been trying to find out as much as I possibly can about depression and anxiety and how to overcome them! Now I know so much more than I did at the start, and I want to share everything I have learned to help others going through the same thing.
About this blog
Nowadays there is so much talk about ‘mental health awareness’ but not so much talk about what it actually actually means.
After frantically searching the internet looking for answers, all I could find were medical websites listing symptoms and general treatment solutions.
I felt I couldn’t really relate to these, as I didn’t feel the people writing them really understood how danxiety affects your life every day. In my experience the best way to help me cope with danxiety is talking to others who have gone through the same thing, and sharing experiences to know that I’m not alone.
This blog is to help you if you are going through the same thing and will consequently speed up the process of getting your life back on track.
Please feel free to contact me if you ever need someone to talk to!
