“Sometimes the people around you won’t understand your journey. They don’t need to, it’s not for them.” –Joubert Botha
I am a 37 year old woman living and struggling with mental illnesses. It’s a daily battle and some days I succomb to depression and stay in bed and some days I feel great. This blog is about my daily experiences as they are unique to me. I do not speak for everyone with mental illness. However, I do hope to provide some insight into the mind of a manic depressive.
I have been diagnosed as bipolar/major depressive with acute anxiety, social anxiety, panic & agoraphobia. It sucks about 80% of the time. The 20% is when I’m full on Manic and I wish I could feel like that all the time. It’s better than any high you can get anywhere else.
I am not normal. I’m weird, awkward, and at times, just ridiculous. I’m me… I don’t give a FUCK what people think of me and care less and less about others’ opinions the older I get. So that being said, feel free to contact or comment about anything you want. I will also post some mental health resources soon both local and national. Thanks for reading!
If you feel like harming yourself or anyone else, please reach out for help, it’s there. Feel free to leave me a message anytime and I will do my best to get you pointed in the right direction.
