Over the weekend, we had a very important day to focus on a very big issue; world mental health day. Not something often talked about until recently, mental health is a truly important topic and we all owe it to ourselves to take it seriously.
Having talked about my hallucinations in ITU previously I don’t want to flog a dead horse, but even now I still get moments where I have to take a second to ground myself. There’s times where I panic, or forget reality. But that’s not a bad thing! These things happen, we all have bad days, and we all have our ways of coping.
I’m keeping this very short for a reason; there are many people better qualified than me to talk about this subject. If anyone is struggling, please reach out. My inbox is open, or you can talk to family and friends. There are even specialty helplines and web chats for this type of thing! Don’t suffer in silence!

And you can always speak to me if you need also Sam. Mental health is important and we all have our ups and downs, me included. If you ever just want a chat about anything, you know where I am. It wouldn’t take long for me to get to you in person if you wanted to chat in person. Stay strong, you are doing amazing and a shining example of positivity to us all. I am both proud to know you and inspired by you both.
