    • Such an emotional and thought provoking read, im happy to see you have started to feel a little better. Even us that don’t suffer with mental health issues such as depression, still have times where we feel so low we just dont want to se or do anything. Ive been there myself.

      Please, if there is anything i myself can do then dont hesitate to get in touch 💕
