The sun still shines behind the clouds

Even on the darkest of days the sun is still shining behind the clouds. You may not see it, but you can feel it’s warmth. It’s always there. The darkness won’t last forever. The same is true for mental health. The darkness won’t last forever.

Whatever you are going through, the sun will shine again, your mind will become clear. It takes time to heal from trauma, any trauma big or small. For me it was a combination of events and being on the wrong medication that led to a peak in my illness.

With a diagnosis of borderline personality disorder, I will always struggle with aspects of my life. I feel things instenly, more than you can imagine unless you have it yourself. I have learnt so much about myself over the last few months. I know what works for me, what my triggers are, and most importantly how to deal with everything.

I will never let myself get as low as I did. I have many plans for the rest of my life, big plans. I am so full of life now, it feels unreal. New friends have come into my life. You know who you are, you are amazing.

I am in a really good happy place right now and I am staying here. I’m living my life for me, doing what makes me happy. Being back at work is giving me focus. I’m glad to be back.

The sun is beautiful even when hidden.

Hi, I’m Martin. 47 years old, living in Suffolk. I have three amazing grown up children. I have the best family and friends in the world. I am a football fan, love going to the gym and I am a motorcycle pilot. I’ve had mental health problems all of my life. This site is about my past, present and future. I’m hoping to make it easier for people to be able to speak freely about mental health. It can affect anyone at anytime.
