On Helplessness and Reaching Out for Help

On Helplessness and Reaching Out for Help

But that's the thing with mental illness.

Mental illness doesn't care if you did everything right.

No matter how often I track my moods or watch my diet, a psychotic episode can still spring up on me out of nowhere. I could spend my days relaxing, taking care of myself, barely lifting a finger, and I can trigger the psychosis.

So if you're having a bad day, and you don't know why... it's alright.

May 2018: Borderline Personality Disorder Awareness Month

May 2018: Borderline Personality Disorder Awareness Month

May 1st feels like a great time to start up thing blog. I'll be honest... it's been a while since I've run a successful blog. My mental health has been deteriorating over the last few years and I've allowed myself to fall into a pit of self-pity. I've deleted blogs that I've started. I threw away projects that I've funneled time and money into. I've come to a point of helplessness where enough is enough.

So to mark the beginning of borderline personality disorder awareness month, I am starting this blog.
