Welcome to Charlie’s Mind – an insight into my day-to-day life of living with mental illness. I’ve been struggling with my mental health for a long time: at the age of 9, I started developing symptoms of OCD. Meanwhile, since the age of 13, I’ve gone through a range of depressive and hyper-manic stages, leading to a diagnosis of bipolar back in 2014.

Living with mental illness isn’t easy. In fact, it can be ridiculously tough. But, I want to share the highs, the lows, and the bits in-between.
