Marci, Mental Health, & More – 2015

I still have the current diagnosis I had when I started this blog: Schizoaffective disorder bipolar type and Borderline Personality Disorder. These are my two core mental illnesses with other diagnosis relating to symptoms found in each of these. However, my treatment has been very different since I started this blog, I’m on completely different medications. . . I no longer have just a case manager and psychiatrist but also a therapist and intensive case manager. I started a year long DBT program a few weeks ago. It’s been a little over 2 years since I have last self harmed. I’m more confident in myself and my sexuality, although there is still a ways to go. The voices have stopped completely last year in February. . . One of my longest and toughest depressions just ended last October with another medication change and hospitalization. I feel with the more biological aspects finally under control with medication I can work on the other issues and that’s what I’m looking forward to in 2015 and with sharing progress and the possible setbacks with Blog for Mental Health 2015.

Marci, Mental Health, & More

I have personal lived experience with mental illness, family and friends with mental illness, worked with children who have mental health issues and/or behavioral issues, studied psychology in college, and inhale any book, website, podcast, etc I can find on mental health.  Knowledge is power.  In my “real life” as I refer to it, I am not out to many people about my mental illnesses and those I am out to know only parts I pick and choose to share.

I want to educate others, I want to support others, and I want others to know they are not alone; these are the primary goals of my blog.  I also blog about other every day stuff, because I am not only my mental illness.
