Welp that’s been a wild ten years

This blog was not my first one on WordPress. I deleted the first a long time ago. I started this one I’d say 7 years ago. I’m sure I can look but it gives me anxiety to read old posts. I know I’m wiser then those ten years ago. I’m more equipped with knowledge and understanding of mental illness. I am not in recovery as I’m not sure it exists for mental health. I’m working on being better every day and I have to tell myself that’s good enough.

I will always have a mental illness. Medications and therapy (well I struggle there too) helps. Looking back I think the best advice is to take one day at a time and if that’s too overwhelm one moment at a time. Either way the tide ebbs and flows. And it will get better then not so great as that is life with mental illness. It’s never too far away.

  1. I started only a year after you with lapses of time in between.
    It does feel weird to read back on the blog. It’s like it makes us feel stronger and we can see the growth, but we still tread on current continuous derailment. Life? Sigh. Anyways. Happity ten years!
