Having depression and anxiety is like being scared and tired at the same time. It's the fear of failure, but no urge to be productive. It's wanting friends, but hate socializing. It's wanting to be alone but not lonely. You will be okay. 💚

What do we need most when we're struggling with anxiety/depression? Someone who actually listens.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their cards that I've received today. It's really helped me & given me a boost after the ward round. I'll be in hospital for weeks to come & my meds have been upped. I'm only allowed off the ward supervised.

I'm staying on hospital for at least another week. I'm really not very well but I need to keep communicating and helping to break down the stigma around mental health.

For 2 years, I've been silenced about speaking about and his obvious issues and been told it's only "fair game" to say he is a malignant narcissist. I think it's time to acknowledge that is mentally unfit to lead the country. Please RT if you agree.

I have no idea where my anxiety gets this idea that everybody hates me. I am surrounded by nothing but amazing caring and empathetic friends.

If I'm honest with you all this episode of depression & anxiety has been the worst I have ever experienced in my life. I didn't want to be here anymore, I thought my life was over and I had nothing to live for. I'm still struggling but I'm still here and fighting!

It's hard when you open up to someone, it might feel like you're wasting their time or burdening them (I feel this more often than not), but genuine people out there who truly care will give you all the time in the world to listen so don't be afraid to open up 🗣

75% of adults who have problems first experienced them by time they were 18 years-old*. The sooner you can spot the signs in childhood the better.

I'm speaking out about my mental health problems and being an inpatient on a mental health ward in the hope that it may help someone else to seek help. If it helps one person then that has to be a positive. It has been hard to admit that I needed help and support.

Someone struggling with a disorder can no more "control" their disorder than a cancer patient can "control" their cancer. Mental illness is exactly that - an illness. Sick people do not choose to be sick & can't just "snap out of it". Be compassionate.

It's been a while since I told you this and I don't want you to forget... You matter. You belong here. You are important. You are not defined by your . You are not alone. I love you. It's ok to cry and so very important to speak up about your .💜🤘✌

It’s not funny being sad all the time and having a sadness so heavy, that you can’t get away from it, having a mental illness is not a trend please don’t joke about cutting yourself and having depression when you don’t, some people actually deal with this everyday

Serious tweet: I'm proud of myself today. Feeling blue, got some lovely depression brewing, but I'm still going out. I'm only having one drink, I'm going in my pyjamas (with unicorn slippers) and I'm playing 40k instead of drinking games. BUT I'M STILL GOING!🎉❤

This is fantastic! Mental health treated on par physical illness and also providing insurance for treatments will help stifle stigma, encourage conversations, increase help-seeking behavior, ensure therapists get better paid and improve quality of therapy overall.

I would love to have a nights sleep without waking up every 30 minutes or having nightmares that feel so real. I'm so tired but just can't sleep properly. On the plus side I'm eating much better than I have for a while.
