Dear Younger Self,
You may not believe me, but, what if I told you that some day you will not be controlled by your mental health disorders. That not only would you live to see your 20s and 30s but you would enjoy it!
What if I told you it was possible to someday start withdrawing from provided supports? That because of hard work and support you could not only survive but thrive.
Younger self, you may not have known the future, but you stayed. You gave life a chance and hoped for the best!
Katie, I’m so proud of you!
To anyone struggling: you aren’t alone and may my words speak to you as well!
