Thanks for joining me! I’m excited to start this blog as a way to share my progress on my mental health recovery. My blog posts will most likely be short daily updates but here it goes. Over the weekend, I tried to kill myself twice. I’ve been diagnosed with a variety of mental health illnesses: PTSD, borderline personality disorder, depression and anxiety. Right now, I’m just happy to be back in the comfort of my bed and home, taking each day as it comes. I go to an outpatient facility most days to get my medications and where they check up on me. Right now I’m on a medical leave of absence from university to focus on my mental health. I hope this blog can help to encourage others to speak up about their experiences with mental health and break the stigma surrounding it.
