As I write, I’m already back home in the UK. I thought about sitting down to write this last diary entry whilst I was still in New Zealand but, honestly, the last few weeks were just a bit manic and I thought I’d have a different perspective on it once I was on the plane home.
That’s certainly true.
I’m so happy that today I get to bring you an inspiring, useful and relatable guest post from the wonderful Lucy. If you don’t know, Lucy writes the blog From Lucy, With Love and she runs her own stationary business, Leaf Lane Studio.
If you live with a mental health condition like anxiety or depression, it’s probably not unusual for you to feel like you can’t, or don’t want to leave the house sometimes.
Tell me if this is familiar:
You go to bed determined tomorrow will be productive. But, when you wake up, you feel different. It’s one of those days. No matter how much you tell yourself to get up, get on with it, this is silly, you have so much to do; you just can’t seem to. It’s like there’s something physically stopping you. The thought of going outside is overwhelming.
