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.
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.
Besides that, hit me up on social media! Comment somewhere that you found me from my blog, and I will follow back!
And I will have a real post for you this week!! Hopefully a few.
I love you all xox
