    Last year I posted a small series of images that illustrated my experience with depression and anxiety. It resonated with quite a few people, so I felt that it was something I should continue to build upon. I worked on it all semester as part of a portfolio class, and while it was a ton of work, I’m glad I was able to do it.

    Mental health disorders are such a taboo topic. If you ever bring it up in conversation, people awkwardly get silent, or try to tell you why it’s not a real problem. When I was in the worst parts of depression, the most helpful thing anyone could have done was to just listen to me - not judging, not trying to find a solution, just listen. I’m hoping that these images will help open up conversation about mental health issues. Everyone is or will be affected by them one way or another, and ignoring them doesn’t make things better.

    You can see the rest of the images at www.edwardhonaker.com

    So it hit me today. Not quite like a ton of bricks, and maybe not that epiphany that leads to recovery, but I think something changed.
    I’ve barely slept the last 3 nights because of heart burn and acid reflux, which I guess might be caused by my laxative abuse. A doctor can confirm this…

    friendly reminder that:

    • you are not weak if you want meds for your disorder
    • you are not weak if you relapse once
    • you are not weak if you relapse a thousand times
    • you are not weak if some kinds of therapy don’t work for you
    • you are not weak if some kinds of meds don’t work for you
    • you are not weak if you have a mental disorder.
    I will reblog every time.

  7. 21st January 2014.

    I did it. I joined weightwatchers ! At 16st I just couldn’t take it anymore. So I have officially joined. It was my first weigh in this week and I lost 5lbs yay. Hopefully I can keep this up and to be fair it’s not been too hard I just need willpower and help. 6st 8lbs to go ! GOOD NEWS.

    My voices are so much more present and prominent these past few days. I’m currently hiding under my covers from them as they are watching me. Why me ? BAD NEWS.

    I have a medication review with my psychiatrist and psychologist on Thursday so hopefully they can help sort out the voices.

    Sorry I haven’t posted for ages just life got in the way. Nothing interesting enough to blog about though haha. I will post more often now: PROMISE XX Send me some asks guys !!

    Hey I’m really not very good at these types of things but I’ll give it ago.

    Okay so I have a friend who is my everything and I cannot imagine what it would be like to lose him. But if I did I would try and give him space to think about things and then try and talk to him and in the mean time I would focus on trying to keep my self safe. I know what it feels like when distraction is useless so trying talking to your mental health worker about things and then when your friend has had time to cool down try talking to him again X

    I think you should talk to an adult or a professional. I know that seems scary but in the long run it will help you out X
