Not historical....

This is something very unlike my normal posts. But given a few things I've been through these past weeks I think it's important I take the time to say something.

If any of my readers are going through any form of depression or mental illness, in the words of the bloggess - depression lies. It truly is a horrid thing to go through and trust me I've been there. Hell, I'm there right now dealing with a mixture of drugs to help me through whatever the hell my brain thinks it's up to these days.

Depression is horrible. It makes you feel worthless. It makes you feel that you don't deserve anything but let me tell you. You are worth it. And you are beautiful.

If I can get through this - although with myself the struggle is very much ongoing - then so can you.

Depression tells you lies about yourself. Please try to remember that you aren't useless like your head says, that you are worth it and that you are beautiful. You're worth everything.

I am hoping to return to more historical based blog posts soon but there will also be some non historical stuff coming up. I'd say I'm sorry. But I'm really not.

Have a picture of a hamster.


  1. I hope you start to feel better soon Sam and get back to your normal self as quick as possible. Being a psychiatric nurse, i have encountered many people who have been at their lowest ebb but they do get better with help form the MH services and also i have not been without low periods in my life myself so I wish you all the best.

  2. I have Borderline Personality Disorder, PTSD, and Bipolar. I go to therapy, I take my meds, I try to be positive... but sometimes you can't get rid of the mental bag of bricks around your neck. You are not alone... not ever! Cheers to you for being strong enough to be honest!
