My Mental Wealth Story
While working in a stressful job as senior manager in NHS, I became depressed and suicidal, lonely and despairing.
Something had to change...and it did.
I had a break-down or, as I later called it,- a break-through.
I went through a process, lifestyle changes, prescriptions and various therapeutic activities that helped me to get my mental wealth back. My mental wealth includes: friendships and time with friends;
meditation, both mindfulness and metta (compassion).
Writing saves my life all the time and always has. I have to write.
Someone said ,If you want to write, read!' and I do read, I love historical fiction and poetry and bits n bobs.
I love sharing poetry and now have a new working like writing and reading with others.
Now I want to fight against the stigma of being mentally ill, and the taboo of talking about suicide. We need to talk,- so that what happened to me stops it happening to others.
