Everyone has a story. Mine is relatively short, but it has certainly had some interesting chapters, and as I embark on my second year of university I’m taking the time to look back on what it’s been like to try to come to terms with having a mental illness. I will be posting about how I came to be where I am now, and the ongoing recovery I find myself facing in the hopes that maybe just one other person can find comfort in knowing they are not alone when fighting their own battles. There are ups and downs to all of life’s situations, and I’m hoping my posts will do their bit show that, but first I’m afraid it might take a few serious posts to give you a bit of background. So here we go, this is the beginnings of my story.
“Mental health recovery is a journey of healing and transformation enabling a person with a mental health problem to live a meaningful life… while striving to achieve his or her full potential”
