So here we are. I saw somebody had created their own tshirt raising awareness of mental health and I decided I would like to join in. I personally have suffered with post-natal depression and anxiety and come through the other side. I still felt moments of happiness but it always felt tainted, like I had a black cloud always hanging over me.
I created a range of sayings/slogans that I felt best described what you can go through during a mental health illness. I decided on All the highs and all the lows. We some help from my friends and family.
I then set to work, drawing, creating, but I am not an artist. I tried my best to draw my own design but it never came out how I imagined it.
Anyway I decided on a very simple design and thought I would go from there.
I don’t know if anyone will purchase the tshirts but if they do I would love to give back to some mental health charities.
You never know if you might develop a mental health illness in your life, but if you do, you are never alone.
Love, Kate. x
There’s lots of different styles so take a look! 🙂
So here I am. I am 24 year old originally from the Isle of Wight, where my amazing family still live. Mother to a little man called Arthur. Partner to Jordan. Nurse, friend, daughter. After having my little man I developed post-natal depression and anxiety. It was a very dark time in my life. I wanted to start this blog as an honest telling of my story and our future adventures. My goal is to tell the reality of motherhood, mental health and everything in between. I would love to help others with my story. Even if I help one person in the whole world I will have achieved something.
Here there will be posts about explosive poos, travelling with a baby, tales of sleepless nights. But there will also be very honest tales of my mental health journey, where you can go for help, and the incredible people who helped me along the way.
I'll show you my family, friends and my amazing partner Jordan. It will be a little snippet into my world.
Please bare with me, I've never done this before, I'm not a write and I don't pretend to be. I'm a Mama, telling our story. You are welcome to come along for the ride.
So here we are.
Love Kate x
