Well it’s been four days since I received the email informing me that my blog has been nominated for a Mind Award. Shock doesn’t even begin to cover it. I burst into tears (of joy) and then tried to ring my mum. I say tried because my hands were shaking so hard I could barely hold my phone!
I began writing We’re All Mad here in 2013 after a nervous breakdown. The majority of resources that I found during my recovery were either too clinical or practically misery memoirs (not great when you’re already feeling hopeless about your situation)! So I vowed that once my health improved, I would document my experiences without the use of unexplained medical jargon. I also wanted to highlight the stigma often attached to mental health.
Recognition from the leading charity Mind is beyond anything I could’ve hoped for. Excuse the choice of words, but it’s MENTAL! 🙂
A big thank you to all my loyal readers. You inspire me and keep me writing.
I would also recommend that you check out the other nominated blogs. I’m so excited to meet them!
