This blog if you can call it that has been a huge help and relief for me. It has allowed me to express myself and write down the feelings that I often find too hard to do in person.
At this point in my life, I am now 7 years sober, 3 months not self harming and probably the most important for me 4 months on medication.
I feel I have gotten to the point where I can deal with life in a positive way without the need to self destruct.
I am bipolar and I don’t need to feel ashamed of that anymore. If people judge me for it then that’s on them and not me.
It is okay to not be okay but more importantly it is okay to ask for help.
Life has certainly thrown me some challenges and taken me to some very dark places. I know I am incredibly lucky to still be here and able to live my best life.
Thank you to everyone for all of your support and lovely words, it really has meant a lot to me.
I Am Not What Happened To Me. I Am What I Choose To Become.
