FIT GIRL INTERRUPTED
Mental illness has many faces, so you shouldn't judge others because you have no idea what battles they are fighting. You may feel ashamed of your own story but it may inspire others and stop the stigma. Mental illness can be crippling and not everyone may understand, but that’s okay.
If you read my story tab you can understand where it all began. However most don’t know by looking from the outside that from 8 years old I started suffering from anxiety or that my first episode of depression was at the age of 16 years old. At the time I wasn't diagnosed and it wasn't a topic often discussed. On the outside, I would smile but what was happening on the inside was a different story.
After a traumatic event at 19 years old, doctors immediately prescribed me medication but I wasn't given any other means of care. My decision was to try alternative means of natural healing on my own. Although I could share more, let’s fast forward.
