We're proud to support 15 to 21 May 2023 Mental Health Awareness Week

People are going through things you never know about.

This week it is Mental Health Awareness week in the UK and the focus is on anxiety., my particular flavour of mental health challenge.

It’s difficult to describe anxiety to people who don’t have it. We all get anxious at times – it’d be unhealthy if you didn’t I think – but having anxiety all the time is different.

It’s about feeling permanently tense or nervous and being concerned that any action you take will be the wrong one. Being unable to relax, it becomes difficult to sleep. I’ve overcome this by sleeping longer at weekends but that mucks up my leisure time schedule.

The hardest part is that, to other people, I don’t ‘seem’ to be unwell. I don’t ‘look’ like I’m panicking. I don’t ‘sound’ as if there is anything wrong.

If you do feel you need help, don’t be afraid to ask for help. I asked for help and it was the best thing I ever did.

Just a reminder.
