I have multiple mental health disorders. Them being Borderline Personality Disorder, Bipolar 2 Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, and a tic disorder that makes me move involuntarily. Growing up, each year having a new diagnosis to add to the list wasn’t really brag-able. I’m only 19 now but I’ve come so far! I not only know the difference of wanting to actually die and wanting to kill myself, but I’m working full time, I have a beautiful Fiance, Alyssia. I have never been happier with my life, and I’m alive. Nobody thought I was going to get this far.
That’s what I’m most proud of. Seeing my brothers grow, my love flourish, and my life bloom because of what I put into my mental health. It gave me my life in return.
