I have just done my first ever Vlog for MILO and as sad as it sounds, I couldn't be more pleased with myself. For nearly 10 years, I've avoided ever watching myself on camera, despite training to be an actor! At one point, I used to even shut my eyes and cover up my ears if I was forced to watch myself back on camera! I do still struggle now, but ever since getting this new laptop that has an inbuilt cam, I've been slowly trying to face my fear. If I ever wanted to express myself, I always did it in the written form - I'm good at writing, writing is safe for me. But in my recovery process, I need to start facing myself and my problems and Milo and Diaries of a Broken Mind is helping me to do that. So basically all I want to say is if someone with social anxiety can not only go on camera but willingly put their problems out in the public (in the hope that I will not help myself but others too), then so can you too!
