Content warning: contains mental health content that may be distressing
About two years ago, I was struggling with my mental health. I was self-harming a lot and I was suicidal.
Around the same time, I attempted to take my life for the first time. After that, I was referred to child and adolescent mental health services where they diagnosed me with depression and anxiety disorder.
I also started to develop disordered eating patterns and perfectionistic traits which made my life harder.
Many more months and attempts on my life later, I was at my lowest point. This is when I made a more serious attempt on my life, which was traumatic for everyone involved.
Therapy has helped me a great deal, and friends and family supporting me made all the difference.
Even though I am still struggling a lot with my feelings and thoughts, I wanted to say that, no matter what you are going through you deserve help, you deserve love and you’re worth it.
