If you've been on my corner of the internet for a while, you might remember last year I filmed a video called 'Feeling Like a Fraud', followed by a blog post titled 'Things That Scare Me' with a small list of (at the time) frightening but achievable goals. At the time, my Anxiety was pretty bad, so this list included things that might seem ridiculous to other people like "Talk on the phone".
I’ve met a lot of people with Depression throughout my life; including members of my family, work colleagues, and friends at university. The vast majority of them were very aware of their problems - how could they not be? There are plenty of articles on how to help people with Depression. If you’re reading this, the chances are you’ve already seen them. However, I’ve never seen any kind of advice for helping someone who doesn’t think they have Depression… but who clearly has it.
When I posted my recent video on Feeling Like A Fraud, I had a lovely comment from Kate's Adventures who suggested that I make a list of things I'd like to do confidently and tick them off one by one. So I thought I'd make a list of the things that scare me (trust me, there are more than this, these are just the first things that come to mind) and include an idea of how much they terrify me on a scale of 1 to 10.
