Hi there! I hope you are feeling ok! I’m Elijah and I am just a regular biology high school teacher from Michigan. I wanted to start this blog after I began suffering from depression during my early twenties whilst studying at college. It made me realize how easy it was to fall into that dark hole and how much harder it was to get back out of it. Another thing that it also made me see is how men’s mental health is viewed as being weak or not manly. Well, I can tell you something dealing with and coping with my depression has only made me stronger and more human in my opinion. Now I would like to try and help so many other like me out there!
Hey, I’m Katie a sales advisor and anxiety survivor. I met Elijah through a group of friends and we connected over the similar mental health struggles that we faced in our lives, and through this, we decided to create this blog to help other people like us. I have always had anxiety and panic attacks and this was only exaggerated as I grew older. I used to be afraid of car journeys, house parties, and at one point even stepping outside. However, now I feel so strong and independent after facing my problems and seeking help and attention from others! So let’s do this together!
We would just like to say that our brains our complicated things and although they can bring us lots of pain they also bring us lots of joy too, it sometimes just means some people have to take an alternative approach to happiness than others. We are all different and unique and your life is as important as anyone else, so use this time to care for yourself and be gentle because we’re all only human and we can do wonderful things!
