Do you really answer the truth when someone randomly asks "R U OK?" I know from my experiences of dealing with depression I would certainly say "yes I'm fine" despite the truth. A lot of people would feel uncomfortable with this question thrown at them.. I was a little teary this week despite being my Birthday turning 28 reminded me how I am grateful to be here living and thriving still. Having had the "World Suicide Prevention Day" & "RUOK?" Day this month of September I feel it was the right timing to introduce you all to my New business adventure that I have been working on a lot! Over the past few weeks ~ So many people are ashamed to admit that they suffer with depression or even know that maybe that is what they are suffering from ~ it's easy to smile on the outside while silently suffering on the inside because mental scars don't show up on your skin ~ This month our mission is to break this ridiculous stigma and help you do something about it. Globally 300 million people will experience depression across all ages. the world health organisation reports that depression is the leading cause of disability in the world ~ & statistics show that 1 person takes their life every 3 hours, around 8 people A DAY!
This topic has affected me & my life in the past~ but I chose to be here & make a change. That is why I have created a movement as apart of my business to help anyone who is going through this where our motto is ~ Keep The Faith ~ (You can read about it on our website) 💕 which is in the link on @be.insoul.inspiredco This month in our Online Holistic Program The Healthstyle Emporium, Our Team Psychologist Tash will be hosting a webinar on the 28th September for our members on this topic //Depression// 🦋What is it? 🦋What causes it? 🦋How to beat it?,And 🦋How you can help others struggling with depression. 🤕 If you or you know of anyone who who like to be apart of this movement, or currently would benefit from being surrounded by people who want to help, or you would like to learn more Please contact me to have access to join us on this webinar. 📩

I spent the majority of my childhood at hospitals. My dad was sick from as early as I can remember. A day out for us used to be going to dad's drs visits and then when he got sicker, we were on a crazy, tiring merry-go-round of emergency visits, ambulances, long hospital stays and horrible tests. When I developed anxiety I never made the connection with how I felt and what I had been through. It all makes sense now - my health anxiety stems from the many years spent listening to my parents talk about medications, different diagnoses, seeing my dad suffering in pain - all the while keeping a smile on his face for his family - until finally we were preparing a funeral for him when I was just 14 years old. So here I am today, sitting in a hospital doing a routine gestational diabetes test most pregnant women will do, but for me it's so much more. I've spent the past day or two feeling sick, just off, and couldn't work out why. Well here I am and I'm coping, I'm doing OK and it's just another thing I will get through! #mumlife #mummy #mummylife #mummystyle #mumstyle #instamums #instafashion #instastyle #perthmum #perthmums #ootd #whatiwore #mom #momlife #mommy #mommystyle #mommyfashion #anxiety #knowanxiety #ruok #mentalillness #perthisok #perthlife #pregnant #gestationaldiabetes #bloodtest #thirdtrimester #26weeks

World's longest post alert 🙄 Depression + Suicide does not have a face! Inspired by my Twin Sister 👭 @sketchadventures I've been keeping a selfie diary of my moods! I think it's suitable to post today after seeing the news story showing the video of Chester Bennington 36 hours before his death. My point is that depression can be so well hidden, likely through shame or embarrassment, because the fact is, there is still stigma attached to mental health conditions.
As you know, I suffered in silence for many years with my condition through complete shame + being stuck in a Police culture where I felt my condition would be seen as a sign of weakness among other things. Now I give the🖕to that culture, the stigma + took back control of my own life through running. I'm lucky it didn't take my life. It was so freaking close. There's so much work to be done + so much I could say, but I'd need a tall fucking horse to do so (sorry about my language) 🙊
Can you tell from my photos where I'm at my best + worst? 🤔 Read my diary below 👇
▪️Top Left: Wearing my heart on my sleeve literally. So many things going on in my life. The question is how do I get through? Is running away the answer? Do I just disappear? #badday
▪️Top Right: Headache, period, sore back, so tired, however, calm + content #feelingfine #justdontlookit 😭
▪️Bottom Left: Feeling happy 🙌 Nothing bothering me at all. Life is good 😀 #justneedfood 😋
▪️Bottom Right: Joking around is my default behaviour. I go to it when I'm happy, sad, struggling, hungry 😂 yep.. hungry. In this photo, I'm really struggling with my thoughts + my reality. My daily struggles are sometimes so debilitating, but that's why I run. It makes those days less.
So, what's my point? 🤔 Depression + Suicide does not have a face. Mental health conditions do not look a certain way. If someone you know shows a change in behaviour, don't be afraid to ask them if they are okay...then hound them like a crazy person to start running 😂
