Diary of Me - Wednesday

Wednesday 20th July 2011.

The social stigma of depression.
Today's video is a bit long and I can't get it to upload yet.

It is My daughters 4th birthday, and I'm trying to be 'Happy' Mumma for her.
She has some friends from Nursery coming over for a tea party and disco, so the house will be full of little kids.

The social stigma of depression is getting to me a little today, after a 'real life' friend saw my vlogs and didn't understand at all.

This makes me very upset and angry that people just dismiss mental health issues without bothering to even try to understand what the other person feels like on a daily basis..

Diary of Me

Following a consultation with my GP and my Therapist yesterday (Monday 18th July) the idea of a video diary was mentioned to try and help me visually track my bipolar mood cycles.

So I figured that I'd give it a whirl, can't hurt, right?

This blog is where I tend to rant on about my depression, so it only seemed natural that this should host my video diary.

I am NOT posting this here for comments. And when I have more than 5 mins between school runs and nappy changes I will figure out how to turn comments off.

In the mean time, if you don't like what you see/hear then please don't try and make me feel worse by leaving nasty comments, just, y'know, use that little red 'x' in the top right of your screen.. Thanks.

So, This. Is. Me.

I'm not a glamours 20-something Mum. My hair is messy, I haven't any make up on. I have huge bags under my eyes from not sleeping due to insomnia, I have 4 young kids and I have Bipolar type 2 disorder.
