My True Story #No66
"People see my insta and think life is fabulous and I’m doing well - the truth is mentally I struggle daily..." - Kez
"Gosh where to begin 11 years ago my family experienced a serious trauma.
I lost everything and ended up with an eating disorder which I still struggle with now to a degree.
People see my insta and think life is fabulous and I’m doing well - the truth is mentally I struggle daily, I cry myself to sleep most nights, I have no support whatsoever and I have a brain condition which I have to fight to get out of bed daily, all while I have to take care of my dad who’s blind and disabled, my son who’s ADHD, attend college and have some semblance of a life which honestly I don’t have life for me revolves around being someone else’s mum or carer.
I've just started making time to indulge in me - achieve my dreams and throw myself into some fun at 43, and maybe meet an honest and decent man (I hold out no hope there honestly)!
The smile hides the tears. I’m not as strong as people think and sometimes all I really want is a cuddle.
When you see the picture [on social media] be kind with your words - forget the smile - the eyes tell a totally different story."
