It's just been the past 2 to 3 years that I've started accepting that I have some mental issues/disorders and I hope to meet others who understand how ny thoughts are.
Anxiety (Including GAD)
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
Complex post traumatic stress disorder
It's hard to finally accept you have mental illnesses. My next step was learning everything I could about them
I understand where your at. I have felt with anxiety and panic disorder on / off for 10 years. I have had many extended periods with little to no anxiety or panic. But a few months ago my existing treatment plan seemed to stop working. Despite some changes to that I am not where I used to be and that has been really hard to accept. To accept that this just may be MY “Norm” now. And, will I be able to live my and enjoy my life if it doesn’t get better. Just remember a few things:
1: you have no idea what the future holds, we spend a lot of time obsessing over the negative “what if’s” but who knows what could change for the good? The last time I had a major slump was in 2020 at beginning of pandemic. At the time I though I would never feel good or enjoy the things I do again. Man was I wrong. 2021 was one of the best years ever.
2: The strength of the human mind to overcome challenges still baffles scientists. It takes time but whether you improve or not. You will accept what you have while also fighting to live the live you desire. And you will win that fight! But it’s a long fight. You’ll have days where you out of fight, and you just feel defeated. That’s normal. Have a few trusted people you can contact for encouragement when that happens. I’m happy to do that (through this app) anytime you need.
This is where the journey starts! I started seeing a therapist about 4 years ago now and I have finally started to understand how my brain is working and WHY. I feel like every day I uncover something new about myself .
Accepting our mental difference is so powerful. I feel like it takes some of the power and stigma away to be able to say "yeah I have adhd and this is really hard for me, ill probably need some help". I don't want anyone's pity, I just want people to understand me in the same way that I'm coming to understand myself 😊
