The Mindlift Story
Learn about the story behind Mindlift
How Did I Get Here?
Three years ago I found myself in my GP’S room, utterly broken, sobbing uncontrollably, openly admitting I can’t do this anymore.
On my lap was my toddler and her five year old sister.
What had got me to this point?
The fear that I may infact harm myself, or try to take my own life, I had hardly slept that week, could not stop thinking about driving myself to the local leisure centre, going to the top of the car park, and jumping, I replayed the image over and over in my mind, I had left goodbye letters for my husband and three children.
This had left me feeling so guilty, I was a mum, how could I even think these thoughts. Sure I had ups and downs, we all do, but to not actually want to be here, this was something else.
Prior to the dr’s visit I was a mess, didn’t want to get out of bed, didn’t want to see or talk to anyone, dragged myself through the days, I had completely lost who I was.
After the dr’s visit I was in such a way that I had to start telling people. I am not ok, the response was mixed, (you have lots going on, or you are struggling) conversations didn’t get much deeper than that, I was made to feel I was just weak, I had never felt so alone.
Where Mindlift Meets Mental Health
I have always been quite an active person, whether this be running, walking the dogs, gym, swimming, but at my lowest, didn’t even want to leave the house, after the dr’s visit I found this sense of empowerment, I was so worried that I would be seen as a failure, by admitting I was not ok, but the opposite actually happened, I was in control again, I had sought help, that was me.
I began walking again, a few months later, went to the gym, this is when something happened, whilst working out, I realised that I hadn’t had any bad thoughts, hadn’t cried, when leaving the gym, the darkness came back, almost felt like I had been slapped in the face, but I had realised for the time being active, the darkness had gone away.
I increased my activity over time, I had bad days, I still do, but I found myself feeling more like me, felt stronger, started smiling again.
This made me realise how important activity is to your mental health and well being. When MindLift began I had conversations with people who I see regularly , once sharing what MindLift is about, have opened up about their own mental health, some harrowing stories, but the one thing that always comes up, is how being active helps the mental health recovery.
MindLift is trying to get the message out, Get up to Lift Up, get outside, go and watch the sunrise, go for that walk.
We at MindLift have lost people due to mental health, have loved ones and friends who are currently battling everyday….. Wear MindLift for them.
