i wanted to be excited about something and I think this is the perfect place to talk about it../// cw for mentions of self-harm and weed...This may not make perfect sense because I popped some gummies for my pain and theyre starting to kick in. I just realized I recently marked 1 and a half years clean from self harm. I want to reflect on my journey with depression. Things still get bad sometimes, because depression doesn't just go away. I know this may sound disheartening, but I don't mean it as a negative at all. If you're struggling with your mental health, I've been where you are right now. i know that sometimes you can't imagine life ever being bearable again, but as cliche as it sounds, it DOES get better! I wouldn't have gotten as far as I have if I didn't find the perfect mixture of therapy and medications. There is no shame in getting treatment for an illness, physical or mental. I still have bad days sometimes, either triggered by an event or just coming out of the blue, but I can bounce back a lot quicker now. i used to be always one exchange away from a derealization/depersonalization episode and it has been months since I last had one of those, and they haven't been nearly as intense. it's like the big shadow monster of depression that lurked over my shoulder became a small wisp that is easily managed.i wish there was some magic cure i could tell you, but there isn't one. i had a lot of trial and error before I found what worked for me. and yeah, it felt a little bleak at times, but I found it. but that combination of treatment is different for everyone! don't be upset when the first few combinations don't work.my messages are always open to others that are struggling <3 just hang in there, I PROMISE it won't always be like this
I am so proud of you!❤️
