Hi, as most of you may know, my name is Michy! I have started this blog on January as a New Year Resolution for a fresh start in my life. Click here to read the first introduction. Even though this was suppose to be a place to serve as an outlet, it’s also a place for people with mental illnesses to not to feel so alone. Along the way of creating content, I was slowly forgetting that. It explains why so many of my posts have been deleted.
As I was deciding to come back, and to come back with a purpose, I had to read my older posts. There were articles I have written that were passionate and personal. However, it had nothing to do with the main goal. Unfortunately, I had to delete them. If there were any particular article that you personally want to return on the page, please contact me and let me know. I would be glad to put it back back up.
I know what you’re probably wondering about. Why did I took a pause from writing and posting? Easy answer. I suffer from metal illness too. Let’s just say I was in a mental state where I felt a bit hopeless and nothing really mattered. Not even this blog. So I paused to feel, think, and experience what I needed to in order to figure it out/tame my thoughts. Sometimes you have to go through the fire to see what’s in the other side. Sometime the other side is the bitter truth and sometimes it’s to find out what you’re really capable of. Whatever that was for me at the time, I had to through my own flames. Now that I have, I’m trying to be a better person and stay consistent with it.
You might also be wondering what mental illness I have been blessed with (please note that was sarcasm). I have bipolar disorder. On top of that, it comes along with it’s best friends, anxiety disorder, OCPD, and dermatillomania (I will elaborate on that in future articles). Let’s not forget it’s god parent called, past traumas, which sometimes triggers me. People see it as me as a sign of me being emotional, a bitch, sensitive, and crazy, but that’s because no one knows my entire story. Not until now…
Here, I will share my stories as an insight on how people who have dealt with similar situations may have felt/feeling. Also, I’m hoping it can serve a purpose for people who have dealt or dealing with a similar situation. Maybe it can help them to feel not so alone, and also assist them on how to properly cope. Heck, maybe whoever reads this, can give me a pointer or too.
Look, I’m not a mental health guru. I won’t have the answers to everything. But maybe, just maybe, reading about my poor life choices you will make better decisions. Maybe seeing me ,still alive despite it all, will encourage you to live another day. Maybe, for the people who do not know too much about mental illnesses, it will be educational and an enlightenment, about the day-to-day life of those who are suffering from their own depression.
However you and other may use this blog, I hope it will provide as much help it can. Also, I will do my best to be consistent and deliver useful content. Now that’s all have been said and done…
