I am sure I have talked about this before but I couldn’t find the post, so I thought I am sure I can do it again.
Everyone who has mental health issues, is at some point given a label of some type. Bi Polar, Depression, BPD, anxiety. The label doesn’t always fit however.
And that is why mental health is such a complex thing, the majority of the problem is us.
We all react differently to different things and its exactly the same thing when we are fighting our own brain chemistry.
When I think about my depression and how I dealt with it, is completely different to the way one of my friends have dealt with their’s. I can give advice, explain how I dealt with it, explain how it feels but it is personal. Because the way we deal with it has been shaped by our experiences, our friends and family and the way we continue to deal with it is the same.
I am sharing not only my journey but part of me. And that is the same with anyone who shares their mental health journey, the good and the bad.
I am not sure if any of that makes sense.
