I live with several mental health conditions which I have struggled with since the age of four.
Although I feel like I am able to cope better with them now, I still sometimes feel like I am ‘failing’ if I have a particularly bad day.
Due to a lack of information about mental ill health, these ups and downs used to make me feel like I hadn’t been ‘fixed’.
I want young people to understand that having bad days is perfectly normal.
It’s okay not to be okay.
