World Mental Health Day & my recent battle with depression

October 10, 2019

Well hot damn, its been a minute since I last blogged! I’ve been avoiding you, I’ll be honest. But absolutely, most importantly I’ve realised, I’ve been avoiding myself. But this week is World Mental Health Week and one thing I have never avoided, has been being open about my mental health.
