When Stress Becomes Incapacitating: Writing My Dissertation in One Week

It was Time to Talk Day back on February 7th. I tend not to purposefully act on days like that – every day presents an opportunity to talk about mental health – and it’s a pretty long time ago now, but on that day I was presented with some concepts for a post I’ve been meaning to attempt to put together for a while. It’s the kind of piece I needed to take some time over, because it’s lengthy and complex and personal and tricky, so it took me almost three weeks to even sit down and try writing. When I did start, I realised that what I wanted to say would be most helpful if accompanied with some context, namely by explaining something which happened back in May last year.
