I’m sure it’s no secret to anyone who reads my blog that I struggle with mental health issues. I have for as long as I can remember. I was introduced to the mental health system when I was 5–I was diagnosed with ADHD and put on tricyclic antidepressants. (God only knows why, but that’s another post.) All was quiet for years, at least on the surface, but in retrospect I realize I was suffering from severe depression as young as 7 or 8.
Trigger warnings: Suicide, self-harm, eating disorder, abuse (sexual and physical), ECT
