My True Story #No69

"You will never see a picture of me without a smile on my face, even when I feel completely empty inside, I will always have a full face of make up and a fake smile." - Lisa

"I'm a single mother of 4. I suffer from anxiety and depression. Most days I wake up with the overwhelming flutters of panic in my chest and the shakes. Some days it is a real battle to get out of bed but I still manage to get my children to school on time and go to work.


I have had really dark days, usually when it's my child free weekend, where I have seriously considered ending it all.

The constant feeling of absolute terror that something awful is going to happen, can be all consuming. I feel like I'm letting my children down, I can't keep up with their homework or emails about school trips, and my memory is terrible.


But my social media portrays me totally having my life together. You will never see a picture of me without a smile on my face, even when I feel completely empty inside, I will always have a full face of make up and a fake smile...."
