I've not written a personal post in a while so here goes, here's what's going on... After struggling for a while to maintain my thoughts, feelings and utter desperation to be seen as 'normal' I booked an appointment at the doctors.  I've felt hopeless and worried and sad and upset and emotional and overwhelmed since …
