I am honored to be able to share my story to recovery and to help others learn about mental health and how it actually makes you more of yourself! From comparison anxiety and eating issues in high school to severe depression and questioning my identity in college, I lived in a fog for many years. I never knew was was truly going on but I knew I was anxious and depressed. When I fell in love I had never felt such happiness and love but that was quickly flooded with a newly emphasized crumbling sense of doubt and anxiety. The ebb and flow of these emotions caused ebb and flow of my relationship until it broke. Despite that, being diagnosed with OCD was the best thing that ever happened to me. Despite ten years of mental health struggles and gut wrenching emotional pain and loss before proper diagnosis, finally being diagnosed allowed me to get the help I needed to become what I consider now to be the strongest and most genuine version of myself. The journey was definitely not easy but all the pieces began to fit together now that I had proper therapy. Recently, I told my therapist, 5 years later, in what I considered my “graduation from therapy” session, I am ready to live my life! I am honored to be able to share my story to help others who may be where I was just a few years ago. I get it-whether a diagnosed condition or not-it’s not always easy and you are not alone! Talk about your emotions, get help, and reach out to me if I can help! ❤️💫🌈👊🏾
