Most of you will probably look at this picture and just see two good friends walking along holding hands... but the truth is she was practically holding me up... we’d just done a gig that I had forced myself to be “Frankie from The Saturdays” for. I had got to the hotel that morning. Shut all the curtains. Got into bed. Under the covers and sobbed for hours alone. It felt an effort to breathe. To be alive. Let alone to get on a stage. Paint on a smile and dance and sing to happy songs! This was one of the first times my anxiety and depression had become so out of control that I couldn’t hide it from the people around me anymore... none of us ever really know what others are going through and a picture doesn’t always speak a thousand words... especially these days! Remember youre not alone and things aren’t always what they seem.... #worldmentalhealthday
