Hey all, It’s your girl Shannon! (YET again!) I’m on a roll with blogging! Can I get a whoop whoop?!
So I did this many times before.
I wanted to do a different version. A blogger version. I am mainly a mental health blogger but I also blog about lifestyle and adulthood. Once the time is right and I have my own children, I will be a motherhood blogger as well.
So I want to do 20 things I’d like to achieve as a mental health blogger!
- Meet Johnny Benjamin and have a conversation with him as I think he is awesome.
- Beat my demons and do a speech involving mental illness and stigma at my local community centre.
- I want to create my own safe haven for people who are in crisis.
- I want to be a trained mental health first aider.
- I want to sort my own diagnoses out and get the right support I need.
- I want to start a therapy again such as DBT.
- I want to learn about each different mental illness as I want to help others let alone help myself.
- I want to help prevent suicide.
- Since my mental illnesses, I’ve never had a stable boyfriend as my demons got in the way. So, I want a stable relationship.
- I want to get the correct medication what I need as the anti depressants I am having now aren’t very suitable for me.
- I want to personally thank my doctor for saving my life when I was in the darkest times last year in 2017.
- I want to continue my mental health pop-up sessions.
- I want to continue being an mental health volunteer.
- I want to help people who have lost their voices to mental illnesses to get it back.
- I want to help people who find it hard to get the right services.
- I want to get the right services for myself as I have been waiting a long time.
- I want to help people who are interested in writing a blog to help set their blogs up.
- I want to go into schools with other mental health bloggers to talk about mental health and explain different things to school children.
- I want to help the NHS to get the right funding for their mental health services.
- I want to help save lifes and end the stigma what is attached to mental illness.
There is my list of 20 things I want to achieve as a mental health blogger.
I shall love you and leave you until my next post guys.
Mental Illness isn’t anyone fault. So why Judge someone for having an illness what they didn’t cause?
Just so you know, it’s okay not to be okay you know, even the happiest person in the universe has their bad days. You can get through this dark hole. I believe in you.
You are loved. You are worth the fight. You are more than your illnesses, you can fight this I believe in you. You are flawless. You are fabulous. You aren’t alone. You are amazing and I’m proud of you all.
You can beat these thoughts. I believe in you. I will always be there for you even if it’s on the internet or email or even in person one day. You are loved. You are needed in this world because you are YOU. You are badass for battling mental illness daily. I care about every single one of you. You are more than enough. You don’t need to please anyone else. God Bless x
