I spent a month in a psychiatric hospital

In February I fell ill again, mentally. I ended back in a psychiatric ward after last being in one in August last year. I failed my new years resolution of not going into hospital but it could not be helped, after all, I don’t have control over my illnesses.

This is a bit scary to put out there as it’s the first time I’ve spoken properly about my struggles to people I know that aren’t my family and closest friends. And I have a bad habit of oversharing so this is probably going to be too detailed.  But today is World Mental Health Day so what better day to start speaking about it. I want to break the stigma attached to it and fight for what I believe in – that mental health problems should be treated equally to physical health problems
