    I'm the fourth reader here.

    How can three readers, after reading your blog, not be bothered enough to at least say 'well-done'? If I construct a generous interpretation then you must consider that your opinion is worth nothing. Only you know who you are and I suspect that you may well be in a worst situation than Lammy was. In which case you will have read that the only way to tackle the situation is head-on and ask for help. Unfortunately, some of the people that you ask will either not understand or not be capable or not willing to help, thus further lowering your self-esteem. That's their failure - not yours; keep appealing.

    But back to you, Lammy, well -done!

    Some of your story leaked through onto here, but you kept your feelings pretty well cocooned from us. But your make-up revealed it.

    Your writing is excellent. It flows, without hesitation, succinctly, logically, without waffle.

    Thanks.

    You must be very disappointed that no-one else has made a comment. I am astounded. Astounded at what I supposed was a bit of a 'community'.

    I think that It's a lesson to us that most people just 'pass on by'. But you do have another response to redqueen.

    I would add - ditch all make-up and dyeing. You're beautiful enough without any facade, it cannot make you any more presentable; it just covers up something that you are trying to hide. It's a facade - not the real you. When someone loves you, you want them to love you, not your made-up facade. If you love someone, you want to love his-self, not his facade.

    You see, I could not have said that to you a few years ago You could not have accepted it. You may have taken it as yet another assault. Having dealt, mostly, with your own facade, you can now more easily recognize others' facade.

    Nothing really surprises me with people anymore! Haha
    I wasn't looking for recognition or any congratulations, I just hoped to start a conversation and open people's minds up to depression and anxiety. I may write more but right now I feel like I've said all I need to and I'm content with that.

    I couldn't agree with you more, most days I don't wear make up at all ( though that has more to do with laziness I think...)

  • Oh my God Lams. Darlingest girl! I would have answered an e mail you sent me, answered the phone at any time day or night. I'm very sorry this happened BUT SO proud of you. I agree with everything Runcicle said and would like to add something. Sweet girl, you

  • did write something that I disagree with:
    "I am no one special, I haven’t done anything particularly incredible with my life."
    I call "Bullshit" on that. I have met I don't know how many people in my life and you Kido are special and I've seen you with my own eyes set the world on fire. It's beautiful what you've written and you simply hAve to keep going because we'll - you are worth every breath. X

    That was beautifully written, you have been through so much, but you are and have always been an inspiration to me, a strong wonderful young woman and I feel blessed to have met you. I know your words will help others xx

    I'm two fat ladies of a reader, number 88. Bingo Lammy! Never have I felt more proud of you. To wade out of the slimy darkness, to a calmer, more balanced place where you can clearly see how far you've come - what an amazing achievement. Few get the opportunity to be in that place, many stumble at the first hurdle and use the bag of escape. But realising how much you're loved, how they can help you manage this crippling burden that was burying you, is an insight far beyond your years. Thrillingly you met and talked to someone who heard you. Who understood, who took your hand and guided you to a better place. I'm so glad you heard them, understood your value to yourself, to your family and to the world, because we all love you and want nothing for for you to live the best life you can. Because that will be good enough and a beautiful success. You rock Lammy xx

    Wow, thank you ladies!
    I'm reading your comments on my train home from work with a big smile on my face.
    Today I started a mental health awareness movement at my place of work.
    Despite the fact that I work for a big corporate company in London they have a very big LGBTQ movement here and I feel we should do the same for mental health awareness. Today is the start of something huge and I'm so excited for what's ahead. That's what brought me back to this blog post, when I find the words I will write more but for now I don't want it to be forced, I was everything to be authentic and true so I'll take my time finding how to say what I want/ need to say.
    As always thank you for your support you fantasticly strong and beautiful ladies!
    Love from the Lam xxx

  • So I have been proven right again (I have a big head) - I said " you simply have to keep going because well - you are worth every breath" and I said that I disagreed with you writing: "I am no one special, I haven’t done anything particularly incredible with my life." Well you Youngster have started a REVOLUTION! OMG!!!!
