Just because I don’t post much about mental health, doesn’t mean I’m cured or have given up on the cause
I’ve had a few messages sent to me asking me how I went from talking on my struggles to posting more light-hearted posts. The simple answer is that I post what I feel like posting.

I have also invested a lot of money on driving lessons to get my license by the end of the year if possible, and on the biggest trip of my life with my best friend.
But I wouldn’t change any of this. Because this is
