I have suffered from #depression for more than half of my life, I was diagnosed at just 16 years old. I had a breakdown 2013 and got diagnosed with #BPD #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #EUPD and after bad times of self harming, suicide attempts, constant hospitalisation, I have managed to stay out of hospital for almost two years now, I am on a slow road to recovery and want to keep sharing my story to help others…
I am so impressed with @mindcharity for recognising, identifying, challenging, accepting the vast spectrum of mental illness and for championing and acknowledging those that are brave enough to share their stories. Apparently they have been for over 20 years. That is impressive. Together we are strong and as for next year, I hope to be a shortlister and to be invited to come along to cry, laugh, applaud, relate, be inspired, appreciate once more, next year 2020.
