Today is world mental health day. This photo is from right before I started OITNB. I’ve struggled with mental health my entire life. I was first diagnosed with depression at 13, then major depressive disorder at 16. When I was 18 I found out I had Dissociative amnesia . I had a few years entirely erased from my memory and a chance run in with my best friend from primary school was the first I learned about it. She remembered me but I didn’t recognize her at all. She remembered our teachers, things we did and my monkey backpack.. things I didn’t remember even when she said them with such innocent conviction. I went home and asked my mum “Did i have a monkey backpack at school?” That is when it all started to unravel and my life changed…I started asking questions. I found out I went from a smiling laughing child to a quiet mute who sat alone and stared off to the distance during recess after one of many traumatic events that I didn’t remember. One that my mum had to tell me about but hadn’t for so many years because the doctors at the time said I was too young to process what had happened and that it was for the best. I was also diagnosed with Bipolar for a long time until it turned out I just had depression.. the pure sad depression without the fun and not so fun parts of mania, it was an overactive thyroid that created that misdiagnosis. Cut to many dark times. On medication, off medication, on and off and on and off per each wrong diagnoses. There were hospitalizations, suicide attempts as young as 12. Cut to therapy and meditation, cut to seeing me at ever self-help section of every bookstore. Cut to a brain scan which showed I had severe PTSD… cut to more therapy and tests that led me to my final diagnosis… C-PTSD. Complex PTSD. What I have learned from the struggles of mental health is just how strong I am. It’s how amazing people are because they love me and support me and yet you can’t judge those who don’t understand and don’t know how to do that either. It’s that you cannot judge people at all because you can never know what they have been through. It’s that self love and self care is more important than anything else.

The 33-year-old also discussed her experience of being misdiagnosed with bipolar.

“On medication, off medication, on and off and on and off per each wrong diagnoses,” she said.

“Cut to therapy and meditation, cut to seeing me at ever self-help section of every bookstore. Cut to a brain scan which showed I had severe PTSD… cut to more therapy and tests that led me to my final diagnosis… C-PTSD. Complex PTSD.

Despite her struggles, the Batwoman star finished her candid post on an uplifting note.

4. “There are things that cannot be.” MAFS’ Susie Bradley just deleted all evidence of her relationship with NRL star Todd Carney. Uh oh.

Uh… It appears Susie Bradley and Todd Carney have split up after eight months of dating.

Yesterday, both stars unfollowed each other on Instagram and deleted all photos of them together, before Susie cryptically shared a message to her Insta story.

“Letting go doesn’t mean giving up, but rather accepting that there are things that cannot be.”

Whilst the NRL star shared pictures of him on a night out with the boys, Susie shared pics of her enjoying wine with friends as well as a sign saying: “wine won’t wake up one day and leave you”.

Now, we can't guarantee anything... but it certainly looks like the two have called it quits.

From the outside looking in, it’s easy to feel like Matty Johnson and Laura Byrne have the whole ‘new parents’ thing down pat.

Not only is their daughter Marlie-Mae extremely photogenic, but followers of The Bachelor alumni couple would know they’re currently on an overseas holiday and managed a long-haul flight with a three-month-old like it was nothing.

That said, both Byrne and Johnson are very open about their journey to becoming parents, and their story is not as shiny as their Instagram feeds.

In a new interview with Stellar, the couple spoke in greater detail about their complicated birth story.

Byrne had an induced labour at 41 weeks pregnant, and complications meant she wasn’t able to have the ‘natural’ birth she thought she would.

“I was in labour and I didn’t get a break. It was just a constant contraction. So after about an hour I was like, f**k this. Give me all the drugs,” the 33-year-old told the publication.

“It was like night and day, going from being curled over the bed throwing up in agony to sitting up having a chat. I was so off my rocket.”

It wasn’t until later into her labour doctors realised Marlie-Mae was in a posterior position, causing the baby’s heart rate to drop significantly.

“She was stuck; they needed to get her out immediately. So there were complications and it wasn’t the easiest of births. But I was just so happy that she was out and in the world that my memory of it is not traumatic.”

Johnson also spoke of how difficult he found the birth, being a bystander to his partner’s pain.

“It was brutal, sitting on the sidelines watching her get belted like that. I’m going, ‘This is not how I thought it would work,'” the 32-year-old said.

“I just wanted to help you as best I could. But there is nothing you can really do other than, like, calling a midwife and holding your hand.”
