#HeadsUp50Project - An honest look into depression and mental health that concerns all of us...
I introduced my #HeadsUp50Project back in January and now I find that I'm typing this just one day before my project begins! It's super scary and vulnerable but I'm also really ready to start examining my past history of depression and what that has meant in my life. I'm feeling curious about who I might be without the medication (Prozac) but also and really most importantly, to have some honest chats with you and society as a whole on the broad topic of depression and mental health.
From tomorrow, I will be following my doctor's protocol for reducing my medication and well, ultimately stopping completely, all being well.
In the videos below, I chat a little about what's going on at the moment, how I'm feeling, supplies I'll be using for my 50 collages and how I'm treating this whole 'thing' as an 'experiment' and I'm finding that this helps take some of the pressure off me and removes the whole 'failure' thing and suits my personality of doing things in my own organic way. This approach also fuels my curiosity and that I feel is a really good thing.
I do hope the above videos give you some sense of what I'll be doing in the future and I'd really love for you to come along on this journey with me by using #headsup50project is you so desire and maybe starting up a conversation with me if you have any experience of depression whether personally or with someone close to you.
Thanks for being here with me...
