Hey frandssss, so I have struggled with depression, anxiety, and anorexia nervosa the past 5 years of my life. Burned in my brain is a quote that I would like to share with you, "Mental illness is not a choice, but recovery is". There is such a stigma regarding mental illness which is probably why I haven't spoke out about my life very openly. Up until now, it was only my close friends and family that knew the truth. I was embarrassed. I was hiding. I was hurting. I was lonely. I was hopeless. But today, I found some type of unexpected motivation. I WANT to recover. I NEED to recover. Truthfully I believe it is due to the power of prayer. Call me cliche but I have felt it first-hand today. I am going to do this for not only me, but for my future. I have a whole life ahead of me that I need to accept and pursue. I can, and I will.
