The 25-year-old didn’t hold back … “I have been really unwell for a really long time. I want to be honest with everyone. I have been struggling.”
Ruby wasn’t specific about where she’s being treated, saying, “I am in hospital at the minute and I am going to be discharged soon and hopefully get to continue with my life.”
Her message came during Mental Health Awareness Week in the U.K., so the timing is not coincidental … “I am going to take a little bit of a break for myself and I would encourage others, if you are struggling, do yourself a favor and take a break. Stop being so hard on yourself.”
Ruby explained what symptoms had manifested that made her aware she needed help, saying she was “rage-filled” with “intergenerational trauma bundled up inside me.”
She went on… “I was carrying the weight of the world on my back and now I am at the point where I can have a diagnosis … I can’t carry on the way that I was. I need to change so that is what I am trying to do. I want to survive and I will survive. I am going to.”
Her message will undeniably help others who are in similar circumstances … suffering in silence.
