My First Blog Post


Hi,

I can't even express how nervous I am writing this. The overthinking of what people will think and whether my content will even be good enough to read. But sometimes there comes a point when you have to push aside those thoughts and just go for it. Three little words but has a huge meaning behind and pushes me to do new things each day because life is too short.
And that's one of the reasons behind starting this blog. My aim is to help people, particularly with their mental health, because I am someone who has struggled and suffered immense pain yet still fight every day. To whoever is reading this now and feels the same way I want to tell you, from someone who was diagnosed with anxiety three years ago, the bad days don't last forever. Your struggles are not a permanent thing and you make the world a better place, each and every one of you.

My name is Aimee Louise Bryan and I am a 17 year old student. If you asked me this time last year whether I would be going to college, I would have straight up said no chance. The nausea I felt just even thinking about it was enough to set me back. The nervous wreck I was sat in the car on the first day, unable to even take a glimpse of the college because even looking at the crowds of pupils walking in was anxiety inducing. But 8 months down the line and I am in college. This is just one of the many examples to prove to people like me that it does get better.

I am devoted to raising awareness for mental health and although this blog won't consist of every blog post about it, it will be my main focus.

Thank you.

  2. 17 was not kind to me either sweet girl. Panic attacks started striking fast and furious. I dropped out of college and went back when I was 28 for my teaching degree and then my Master's degree in my late 30's. My panic attacks returned about 9 months ago with my breast cancer diagnosis but I am coping again now. I am so glad that you are able to attain your educational dreams at 17 and fight through the anxiety!
