This is such a a brave post and I love you EVEN MORE for sharing your vulnerabilities! Shadow always throws light into sharp relief, which is exactly how I think of mental health – it just makes me appreciate everything that makes you the wonderful you that you are, even more!

Kate Everall says:

Thank you for your beautiful comment – the shadow into light has really stuck with me. I’m trying really hard to appreciate my little ‘quirks’ as they’re what make me me – although it can be tiring at times – I’m trying to put them to good use, like education and support. Fingers crossed.

Kate says:

Oh Kate, bless you for being so open and brave. I’ve begun talking about my mental health more but do worry people just don’t ‘get’ it. But a lot of us doing, and as long as it’s cathartic for you, please do carry on. You’re not alone x

Kate Everall says:

Thank you so much for taking the time read. I think we’re a long way from people ‘getting it’ – especially as it’s often portrayed so badly in the media, but if we all take small steps – like you seem to be – we’ll start moving forward. Thank you, again. xx

Caitlin says:

Just want to thank you for sharing your experience and perspective! Some of my favorite bloggers (and some of my favorite people in real life!) are people who candidly speak about their own personal struggles, including mental health or addiction, in a non-judgmental way. I’m glad you’re adding your voice and I personally think MORE of you, not LESS@

Kate Everall says:

Thank you so much. I’m going to start talking about it more, whilst also educating myself about other mental health issues and how I can help.It can only lead to good. Honesty and openness is the way forward.

Rachel says:

Thank you for sharing. I suffer terribly with aniexty – to the point of going to A & E 4 times in the space of two weeks. I think sometimes just knowing you’re not the only one really helps. Again thank you for such an honest accountZ

Kate Everall says:

Thank you for taking the time to read my post and for sharing your story. I cannot agree more with you. One of the biggest steps is talking about it, but it’s so reassuring, like a weight off your shoulders, when you realise you’re not alone.

Sarah says:

Beautifully written, Kate. Thank you for being so open. I pick and scratch too- it goes hand in hand with my anxiety. The more people talk, the more people will understand and accept that mental health is not really that separate from physical health.

Kate Everall says:

Absolutely. It takes only one to start the conversation and I’m so so glad I did. It’s reassuring to know I’m not alone. Thank you for reading. x

Dear Kate. Thank you so much for writing this post. I know how hard it is to open up and appear vulnerable. But you will have helped so many people by writing this. You are beautiful and brave. And an amazing person – more so because you are human. And truly beautiful humans have seen the darkness as well as the light. Sending love Lucy xxxx

Kate Everall says:

Thank you so much, Lucy. That’s so kind. It took me a while, but reading all the feedback and messages has encouraged me to talk about it more. If anything, it’s helped me get a few things off my chest that have restricted me in the past. I hope by opening up the conversation it’ll help others talk about it and learn. Thank you for reading. xx
