“I’m living with bipolar disorder type 1, adhd, anorexia as well as having complex trauma and honestly, a host of other things, but those have been the center of my challenges, quite literrally at times leaving me disabled both mentally and physically and in a lot of pain.”

“My recovery has been relearning and having to live, what it feels like, a completely new life… and not by choice. It’s learning, living and creating a new identity for myself. Added to that I’m living with disabilities that no one can see.”

“I do talk about my mental health and illness online, and it’s been a great way for me to feel seen. I think that sharing our stories, and have others empathize with you is the best way, outside of all the other medical recoveries aspects of things, to feel better, believe it or not. I’m not saying that you should do it on YouTube, but just opening up about what you’re going through to someone that can possibly relate.”
