*deep breath*
On Monday I am (probably) in national press & on TV talking about how, despite being stable, capable & mostly happy for 15 yrs after spending my 20s in psychiatric care, the unbearable shiteness of Brexit made my suicidal thoughts re-emerge.

#MakeItStop #FinalSay
I'm a lot better this year but last year was particularly difficult.
There were a couple of incidents that could've gone badly but thankfully didn't.

I'm really struggling to see why we are just letting this be done in our name when it will only make things worse for most of us
I'm hoping people will agree that it's not me that's crazy, simply that #BrexitIsBonkers.
Hoping that people just don't see how damaging this path will be to anyone who isn't tax-dodging profiteer.
That they haven't seen the impact Brexit is already having on us & our neighbours.
Hoping others will see we really ought to check Brexit before its too late to step back from national & international self-harm.
But maybe I'm wrong & not enough people share my BrexitConcerns?
I guess we'll find out if others want to #MakeItStop.
But we are running out of time.
I've no idea how much they will show of what I have said, but it's the best shot I have at making a difference, and I hope it helps open a way to get people talking.

At least I know I tried my best.

Brexit means losing a great deal.

Make Jane sane again...
I've opened myself up to abuse because I can't ignore the utter hopelessness I feel at the damage Brexit is doing to us all (not just in UK)
The way that politicians & the media are failing to address this is maddening.
Makes me want to give up.
But we must not
I keep hoping people will wake up to the fact that the things that are wrong in the UK will only get worse if we commit Brexit.
But every day that passes, with business warnings, news of stockpiling, shortages & martial law, still people don't seem to want to #StandUp2Brexit
Our government has been repeatedly condemned by the UN for mistreatment of disabled people & rising child poverty.
Nothing seems to change.

I don't want to to raise my child in CruelBritannia.
We need change but not for the worse

It seems like a decade ago that I made this second referendum petition in sheer desperation.
It's a weird feeling not knowing if I'll even get on TV / in the papers after baring all (no, not that, no-one wants to see that). Having to prepare friends & family members for the fact that people might come at them with abuse for me speaking out.
Or maybe nothing happens?
Well, that wasn't much, but it was better than nothing.
Only a little bit of me & nothing too scary or campaigning.
They said they picked a bit that would speak to mums. Hopefully it will.
It's on again at 6:30, Channel 5, if you want to share my frustration.
Here's a longer clip of me, saying a bit more than they could include in the actual TV show.

I'm pleased to say they reposted with a more positive comment on my experience of Brexit and my mental health
#BrexitIsPersonalJane #CheckBrexit #MakeItStop added,
Here's a bit more detail about why I am so troubled by what we are letting happen to us #BrexitIsPersonal #BrexitisCrazy #MakeitStop
