Greetings Lords and Ladies, Sirs and Dames,
Madames et Monsieurs!
As I'm sure is the case for many of you creative beings, life is a pretty tricky thing to get to grips with sometimes and can kick you in face harder than a Neo-Nazi in a pair of steel toed Doctor Marten Boots! As a result my poor old brain occasionally likes to have a bit of a tantrum and a soap opera style melt down, which can be a pretty scary thing to happen to a small, dreadlocked hobbit like myself!
I haven't yet randomly shaved my head a la Britney, or cut off my own ear like Van Gough, but mental health troubles do certainly make you feel like a completely different person to the one you are used to being.
So in aid of depression awareness week, I wrote a style themed guest blog for Mental Health Awareness website Black Dog Tribe. Keeping creative, writing this blog and having projects to focus on has certainly helped me feel a hell of a lot better and I wanted to share some ways of regaining confidence after suffering a visit from the black dog.
I won't babble on in too much detail about it's content, but it's bound to resonate with 1 in 4 of you, so why not go have a read, support and make the subject of mental health less of a bloody taboo! Read, share, 'like' and Re-tweet if you please.
