Hi, this is just something about me. I have been suffering with mental health problems since the age of 18. I also had anorexia nervosa at that age. I lost so much weight that I almost died. Now I cannot keep the weight off. About 7 years ago I was diagnosed with High Functioning Asperger’s Syndrome and OCD.That means that I get anxious in situations which are completely abnormal to me. I also have the menopause and balance problems. I have just retired from my job as a classroom assistant because I was deemed to be a risk to the children because of my balance problems. I also have Type 2 diabetes which can make me feel tired.Groups like Mental Health Mates really help people like me because they make you realise that you are not on your own and that it is okay to admit that you are not fine. There was an item on Mental Health Matters on yesterday’s BBC London News. I am glad that I watched because I have now joined the group.
