Mental Health Awareness Letters – 16th May 2018

As May is Mental Health Awareness Month, I had an idea to write a letter each day to a person, or group of people that have had an impact on my own personal health. The first portion of the month has been delayed, however I hope that I will catch up and there will be a daily post. Thank You for taking the time to read these and I appreciate any comments or support you can provide on each post.

Please remember that if you are struggling with your health, both physical or mental, there may be some triggers in these letters-please seek support if you find these letters trigger any distress. Look after yourself!!

Letter 16 – To The Mighty

Embracing your Needs – With Help from The Mighty.

This post is helping to share an important post I saw on The Mighty; click here to read it.

It is all about #embracinyourneeds and published the “I Need Cards” – asking to download and share the cards. I thought this was an amazing idea so you can download the cards below or visit the link above to download them directly from The Mighty.

This letter is all about helping others, I hope by sharing these files/images with you that you can either use them for yourself or share them with others that you feel could benefit from them.

What I Need When – CREATE YOUR OWN

What I Need When: When my Chronic Illness keeps me home / When I don’t have any spoons left

What I Need: When I feel blah / When I “Just Can’t”

What I Need When: I’m Dissociating / I’m Triggered.

What I Need When: Experiencing Psychosis / I’m Manic

What I Need When: Struggling with my Eating Disorder / Battling Self Harm Urges

What I Need When: Going through medication change / Having a bad mental health day

What I Need When: I’m Stuck in bed with depression / Overwhelmed

Letter 15 – To The Mighty

I first Discovered The Mighty a few years back, and have written some pieces for the site.

If you haven’t seen the website, please head over to the site as there are several pieces about life with chronic conditions, written by us!! real people who are living with these conditions every day. There are also pieces about parenting and lifestyle.

The Mighty has helped me through times when I needed something to do to take away negative feelings, helped me when I have been confused and helped me learn about my conditions and allowed me to find a community that actually understands-rather than those that just say they understand for the sake of it.

It is definitely worth a look, even if you are a parter, friend or relative of someone who suffers from difficulties, there is something there for you too!!

Coming up in tomorrow’s letter; Embracing your Needs – With Help from The Mighty.
