So as most of you are aware it is Bell Lets Talk day, in honour of today I want to share something with you. I have suffered from mental illness all of highschool and majority of my late teens. It was a struggle to get through most days with a smile on my face, it took me to get to a rock bottom for me to finally reach out for help but I am glad I did. I got a chance to talk everything through with someone and know that I am not alone in this and that everything will be alright if I take one day at a time. I still have moments today that I struggle through but I am very fortunate enough to have some amazing people in my life that I can talk to, not everyone does and that is why Bell Lets Talk day is so important. If you can donate any money please do so, mental illness is something that needs to be talked about more and recognized.
I am very happy to share my story and if you are going through something yourself, please know that you are not alone and there are people out there that are willing to help.
