MissLJBeauty: Depression and me

Depression and me

Hi there 

So today I did something brave, I told two of my close work friends about my depression. 
If you have been following me for a while you will know I moved to a new village and started a seasonal job, I have meet some lovely people. I have grown really close to one girl at work and I started to feel like I was hiding myself from her and I didn't want that. as I feel she will be a true friend. 
They have reminded me there are nice people in the world ( not just other bloggers lol) 

I was worried about having the conversation but it seemed to come up so I just blurted it out. I have to say it went really well. Although I am still worried they will both see me differently. I am relived to have told them. 

My other friend has had issues in the past and I was really wanting to say I completely understand what you are saying and what you went through. He has overcome a lot. 

It's coming to the end of my seasonal contract and I'm starting to really worry about the future. I have my bad day and good days I.m just so worried about not having some where to go each day. I am  studying and will start my own business but we all know these are hard to start in small places.

I just dont want any stigma to follow me about. 

It's hard coming to terms with depression yourself let alone telling others. 
But at least if I have to leave a night out or have a panic attack I have two friends who know what's happening. 

I am going to keep you all updated on my depression as to be honest it's part of my life and me.

It was really brave of you to tell your colleagues, it can be a very difficult thing to do. I tend to keep my health woes to myself because of the "stigma" that I know still, sadly, exists. Good on you!
