Make Time for Wellness or Be Forced to Take Time For Illness

Scroll down to content

May is almost over and I realize I have not posted much about Mental Health Awareness. The more I thought about it the more I realized how painful and raw my story is even all these years later. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not ashamed to talk about my story. In fact, I often speak very openly about it. But, when I thought about going more into detail about my past it just didn’t feel right. The timing was wrong. Yes, 10 years is quite a milestone, not just of surviving the sexual assault but suicide too, and I could not be more proud of who I am and who I continue to become. But, the timing is just wrong. I’ve had a lot of stress the past several months and I just didn’t want to take a chance on going too deep and triggering myself.

It’s important to make time for our wellness before we are forced to take time for our illness. And, for someone that is just now getting over a nasty stomach bug, that is great advice. No, there’s probably not too much I could have done to prevent it, but I’m learning how important self care is… not just the feel good stuff but the things we need to do daily to take care of ourselves.

Having said all that… stay tuned for a guest blog post I will be putting up for Mental Health Awareness Month and BPD Awareness Month.

Stay well, my friends!
