Lots of New Mental Health Articles For You!! 7/5/17

I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry.

I know I abandoned you, the followers who keep me going. I am so grateful for all of you and your support, and I promise I’m going to keep posting more regularly, like I did in the beginning.

Let me tell you about what all has changed in the past few weeks.

Most importantly, I made the decision to go back to college! This is huge. I didn’t think I could do it; I didn’t think I could do it; I didn’t think I could do it; and then I knew I could.

Why?

My second change (okay this one is probably actually the most important): I stabilized 7 weeks ago for the first time.

My meds work!

I didn’t believe how well the correct mood stabilizers can work until it happened to me. After my antidepressant downfall, I was quite the skeptic. I figured meds could only get me so far.

Meds got me so, so far.

Third, even though I haven’t been writing here, I’ve been writing my heart out guest posting. Right now my newest post is live at scvincent.com. It’s called “Against Stigma.” It explains the 9 warning signs of mania, and is one of my favorite articles so far! I appreciate Sue for letting me write for her, and am thrilled to expand my audience!

I will also have a post live at worthliving.co this week. This will be my second article for Worth Living; the first was “Mental Illness and Humility,” which can be found about 20 blogs down on the link above. And I promise I’ll let you know when the second comes out! “Who Am I If I’m Not Manic” explains how my friends, family, therapists, and psychiatrists all believed my mania was my normal, which led to my misdiagnosis of Major Depressive Disorder.

I also have two articles on iam1in4.com: https://iam1in4.com/2017/06/ “The First Psychiatry Meeting” and https://iam1in4.com/2017/06/ “The First Therapy Meeting.”

Besides that, hit me up on social media! Comment somewhere that you found me from my blog, and I will follow back!
