Hi, so, my name is Demi, and I live with Depression and Anxiety. It all started many years ago, but got worse when my grandmother passed away 2011. Six Months later, someone tried murdering my brother, it was a week before Christmas, too. I detereorated, then 6 months after that, June 2014, before my grandmothers death anniversary, I was on holiday in Isle Of Man on my own, visiting some 'friends', I was 15, the police and social services had to police escort me home. I was a victim of grooming. I had a lot of therapy and classes after that. I didn't get diagnosed with anything then. It wasn't until I revealed a matter of something that happened when I was little to the college, which became a safeguarding issue, Jan 2014, that things got bad again, I got over that, but then17th March, 2 weeks after my 17th, I nearly lost my mum. May, I got an official diagnostics of depression and anxiety. My life since has spiralled out of control and 9 months on, I'm still battling these illnesses and and fighting for help and people to listen to us, but I'm still here, I'm campaigning for mental health in March, and will be doing a skydiving event for Mind. I'm slowly going to raise money, make a difference to this world, and do everything in my will to save those around me battling a mental health problem, including myself. I love each and every one of my friends, especially those with mental health issues, like PTSD, depression, anxiety, BPD, Bipolar, and so much more.
All the best,
