MENTAL MUTHA MEETS VICTORIA MARDEN

Are you a mental Mum or a Mum that’s mental?

A mental mum - I suffer from what is known as health anxiety. I have a huge fear of dying, it consumes me more at night, and with this come the fear off illness over the smallest symptoms. I have a headache and my mind says tumour.


What do you do when you feel overwhelmed? Meditate? Talk? Hide?

Usually hide


Do you discuss your mental health with your mum mates?

Yes I do 


How do you tackle mental health chats with your kids?

I haven't really spoken to my daughter about it. 


Who helps you in the dark? (In your pits, your mental rock bottom - who is your hero?)

My fiancée, he is my rock. He will sit for hours if he has to and listen. 


What helps you in the light? (Meditation? Procrastination? Perspiration? People?)

Reading, baking, spending time with Lils, tidying. 


Is it hard to talk about your mental health? (Doesn't mean on Instagram necessarily, but do you feel the stigma is lifting and do you feel safe to speak your mind, even if it is possibly 'mental'?)

I find it easier as time goes on but at first I was so nervous that people would reject me. 

Where’s your head at?

I am in a pretty good place at the moment, it's usually at night I feel anxious.
