About Me

ME, MYSELF & I

Hey there! Let’s begin with the basics of me. My name is Caitlin Jones, and I have been growing up in a country town in Victoria, Australia for the past 20 years of my life. At the moment I am studying a Bachelor of Media and Communication majoring in Social Media; ironic, I know. And when I finish with that accomplishment, I am wanting to complete a PhD in the same field, as I am in love with learning in the media and communication area; again, ironic, I know. Oh and if you haven’t noticed already, I suffer from mental illnesses, in particular, anxiety and depression. You can read my blog posts to get the update on that!

It is wild to think that it has only been one year since I opened up about my mental illness and posted it for the world to read.

I remember the moment I shared my blog on my social media for the first time; I was panicky thinking that others would perceive me as weak for having mental illnesses, and attention seeking for wanting my 15 minutes of fame. But once the love and support came through, I didn’t feel so alone anymore.

The stigma that surrounds mental health doesn’t just come from other people, but the illness itself; forcing victims to stay quiet, embarrassed and guilt-ridden. Since the beginnings of my blog to now, I feel as though I am not letting my anxiety and depression silence me as it has done for the past 19 years.

One year on and I haven’t fully recovered, yet I fell no shame or humiliation for my mental illnesses; and that I owe credit to you. To those who have supported from the 16th of March last year to now, thank you for browsing through my site and burying yourself in my thoughts and feelings. I created Demons Inside My Head as a platform to speak the thoughts on my mind, which then resulted in the desire to educate people on mental illness, and also share the ways of how I deal with anxiety and depression. I can’t express how much I appreciate your support and encouragement, as it helps me to build and continue sharing what life is like living with mental conditions; something that is often defeated. Thank you for allowing my voice to be heard beyond the stigma.

❤ Caitlin
