I was invited by a friend of mine to join a youth club he attends. Today was my first session and I was really, really anxious about going to the point that I thought I was going to have a panic attack (luckily that didn’t happen)
I was anxious because it was a different area of town with new people so it was kind of a big expectation of me considering I barely leave the house, only to go to work and occasional outings with friends/family.
Youth club was great though everyone made me feel welcome, seemed to really like me and find me entertaining (rather ironic really someone with depression being entertaining by making people laugh)
We decorated T-shirts today, I thought I would design one for Mental Health Awareness Week which is next week. The artwork isn’t very good but I feel it gets the point across and several people at the youth club asked me about it so I got talking to them about what it was and everything which is the point really, to get people talking about mental health and spreading awareness.
