It’s been a while readers!
The reason behind my online absence has been because of my ongoing health issues. Two weeks ago and you would have been greeted with a different post. But following a suicide of one of my neighbours affected me more than you could imagine.
I don’t know the reasons behind it, it could have been due to anything like the state of our blundering economy, not getting enough support from those higher placed or, like me, suffering from an illness which is invisible to the naked eye.
I’m not speculating. Forgive me if it comes across that way. Mental health issues are ignored tenaciously. Nobody wants to acknowledge such a darkness that lies in one’s mind. I know all too well of the isolation and helplessness when all you want is someone to understand and give you an answer on how to fix it. But, to some more life threatening illnesses, mental health issues such as depression and anxiety can’t be cured by an operation.
People everywhere are struggling with this darkness. Everyday they are pleading to an invisible force for a cure other than talking therapies and motivation for tackling such problems. This is why I am urging you to open your minds, use your instincts, not your eyes to see if someone very close to you is suffering. Chances are they are looking for someone to understand them just like me.
Let’s give this issue one of its own. Let’s talk about it. Let us defeat mental health problems.
Thank you for reading,
