Hi all. So i have bipolar disorder 1, PTSD, OCD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder and ADHD.
I've struggled with my mental health since I was 3 years old. I have been hospitalized twice for suicidal ideation and suicide attempts.
Recently, I have gotten to advocate for mental health on a national level. I also work as a peer for those who are going through their own journey with mental health.
I struggle still from time to time. Manic episodes turn into a crash and burn depressive episode. But I'm learning to manage my symptoms, and use my knowledge and passion to help others.
I want everyone to know that you are worth the time it takes to heal.
