I’ve done it, after years and years I’ve finally recovered from mental health issues as long as keep taking my medication and keep doing what I’m doing I will be absolutely fine.
I may even have blips and that’s okay because I’ve learnt how to recognise when I’m sinking and can work on not drowning but staying afloat. Wether that’s going for a run, doing some yoga or riding/seeing Zeus it’s going to lift my spirits and encourage my brain back to me. I know what works for me and what doesn’t and I have amazing support from my husband.
I will be on citalopram for the rest of my life and you know what I don’t care, I’m not going to be ashamed to take a white pill on the daily to keep my mood stable. It’s no different from an asthmatic needing an inhaler or a diabetic needing insulin nobody should ever feel ashamed of any physical and psychological conditions. Nobody is immune to them, unless your not human!
I want to be an advocate for mental health, I’m going to see what I can in terms of helping in the mental health community I’m just unsure where to start to be honest, and I will need to find the time too. I enjoy writing my blog and talking about mental health and my struggles, because I want to encourage people who suffer in silence that you are not alone, more people walk among us with some condition or other more than you realise.
Maybe I should celebrate….
