The Voices That Haunt Us. Out Now.
I am mentally ill. I have been mentally ill for a long time. I battle depression and anxiety and have done so for years. I have had counselling therapy and I take a little white pill every day that keeps me level. I am not ashamed of any of this. For a long time, I was ashamed, and I hid my illness from others and even from myself. I hid it well until I could no longer hide it and my body started to give up the fight. The effects of my illness are played out in my thoughts which fill my brain with pain, fear and low self-worth.
I believe that one of the only ways to minimise the impact of the negative thoughts that plague me is to bring them into the light of day and expose them to reality.
This isn’t a book in which you will find expert advice or a 5 step programme to mental well-being. It is a book in which I hope you find hope in the knowledge that you are not alone.
I hope you read my story and realise that your pain is valid, that you are worth helping and that your life is worth more than being miserable. I hope in my honesty you find encouragement to be honest with yourself about the help you need to escape your own thoughts.
We are all more precious and fragile than we think we are.
