An insight into my struggles and when they started.
My name is Claire and my struggles with ill mental health came to a head (pardon the pun) back in 1995 when I experienced what was then diagnosed as chronic post-natal depression. I spent several weeks in a mother and baby unit until they felt I was safe to leave. Since that time I have been on one antidepressant or another. After several diagnoses, therapies and self-help books I have felt able to reduce my medication. At its highest point it was 45mg Mirtazapine which according to one GP would knock out a horse.....charming.
Anyway I am now transitioning between 15 mg and 7.5 mg at my own pace.
I am certainly not an experienced blogger, which is probably obvious, but if my blogging can help not only myself but others then I feel my pain and fear weren't totally in vain.
Please feel free to get in touch and let me know how you are doing.
