Often when we feel depressed, we are less likely to take care of ourselves and our environment. In this video I talk about my experience of hygiene (or lack thereof) and depression, and the effect this has on my well-being. Please feel free to share your story with me, if you feel comfortable.
Don’t forget to tell me how your week has been.
Thank you for taking the time to watch this – I hope to see you next time.

Take care and I hope you have a safe, peaceful week.
The Little Blue Pot
Welcome to my YouTube channel where I’m hoping to educate people on the different types of mental disorders to provide an understanding and learn ways to cope. I also vlog about my own experience of living with mental illness, as well as sharing other aspects of my life. I want to raise awareness of mental illness and how to have better mental health, so I hope my channel helps you and others.
I am not a qualified mental health professional or expert, but I am an expert in living with mental illness. All my videos are based on lots of research and I do my best to explain everything as clearly as possible and provide examples from my life to help you understand. I might not get it right every time, but I do the best I can. I hope the findings from my research are of benefit to you.
This Vlog is from my perspective, but I do appreciate that not everyone will have had the same experience as myself – we are all different after all, even if we have the same diagnosis. I have also tried, where applicable, to reference everything correctly, but we are all human and make mistakes – please stick with me.
