Guess first need to write a little about myself–the struggles of MH issues–honestly not something “we” like to talk about, or write about really–dont like the stigma, dont like the label–that is exactly what this stuff does–labels you–and next to trying to fight the depression, and the issues–we now have to fight the stigma and the label and try to remind ourselves that it is a dx not who we are—but then are we really???? I say that because unfortunately “we” have lost alot through our issues–not by choice, just most (if not all really) family, friends, home, etc has all but disappeared–it is like we have the plague instead of a MH issue—even on FB to be honest no one understands really and they too dwindle away–that hurts and makes the struggles harder–at least for “us”
Obviously depression is the biggest struggle for us–and we know that some of you reading this will say it is our choice, or it is treatable—well unfortunately we are not that lucky-fortunate, etc—our dx was severe untreatable depression–(sure you all will understanding as we write how, when, and what came about)–anxiety, PMDD, su ideation, ED, self harm, and other stuff as well is what we struggle with–again will write more of that in other posts, how they came about, coping mechanisms, and the labeling, and losses–we used to struggle with alcohol, but that is not an issue for us anymore–another thing will write about along the way.
Will also write some of our poetry through out the years
My biggest thing with this blog is to bring some reconition that depression, and MH issues are REAL–we dont want them–and to help others on this earth know they arent alone–and that someone understands and supports (another thing i struggle with horrible–no one walks with us, feel totally lost and alone-not lonely but alone)
