About Me

Since my sophomore year of high school, I have struggled with mental illness. I spent the fall of my sophomore year self-harming, depressed, and isolated. I eventually spoke up and got the help I needed to stop self-harming. I still struggling with anxiety and depression, although mostly anxiety. While I don’t self-harm anymore, I still have to fight the urge to cut when I’m upset. I cope through a couple medications to manage my anxiety, I see a therapist on a regular basis, I workout daily, and I talk to my wonderful friends and family when I feel like I need to cut. This summer, I was hospitalized for being a suicide risk. While I’ll never be perfect, I’m much better at handling anxiety and depression and I’m on a healthy track. I’ve chosen to go into nursing and hopefully become a mental health nurse so I can help people like me šŸ™‚
