R U OK? Day 2016. 366/251.
It is here again.
R U OK? Day.
Thursday 8 September.
This time last year I wrote extensively about R U OK? Day and I offer it to readers again here.
Please check it out and watch the video story about the founder.
Recently I found these words from Adam Goodes, the AFL Player, now retired, who is a past Australian of the Year when he wrote about his depression.
I chose to ask for help.
Depression is different for everyone.
There were times I felt so down I didn’t want to train or be around people. I just couldn’t get myself out of that haziness.
Then I took ownership of my thoughts instead of letting them control me.
I meditated. I focussed on my passions.
That balance kept me strong mentally.
I do hope that should you or anyone you know need to have someone to talk to, you know that can call any of these numbers. It is completely free and anonymous.

R U OK? I am most days and am very fortunate to have a supportive husband, GP and counsellor who help me through my life right now in the transition that goes on…and on!
